From Acadian folksongs to the sea songs of the coastal Carolinas, the American Routes radio program brings together all of the fine American musical traditions in one delightful two-hour block each and every week. The program is hosted by Nick Spitzer, and it has received sponsorship from Tulane University and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Some of the guests who have appeared on the program include Abbey Lincoln, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, and Dave Brubeck.
