Baton Rouge Blues Festival

Teddy's Hand
Nina Feldman

Each week, American Routes brings you Shortcuts, a sneak peek at our upcoming show. This week, we travel to Teddy’s Juke Joint – right along blues highway 61 in Zachary, LA. It’s a small, double shotgun house at the end of a gravel road, lit up by Christmas lights all year round. Inside, you’ll find good times and good blues music, served up by Lloyd Johnson Jr., a well-dressed bear of a man in a red suit, sporting a large cowboy hat, and better known to the regulars as Teddy. 

State Representative Katrina Jackson (D-Monroe) talks with Jim about issues and proposed legislation coming in the 2013 Legislative session, which starts Monday at noon.

A visit with Chris Brooks, of DIG Magazine, to chat about the upcoming Baton Rouge Blues Festival and other local hot topics.
