Bal de Dimanche Apres Midi, May 5

  Guidry's program is basically a request type show from call-ins and write-ins. He also does live interviews of musicians and on other French related topics. The main concept is to bring his audience the Cajun Music that would normally he heard if one was at a Sunday Afternoon Dance. Listeners can expect to hear recorded Cajun music from the very traditional roots musicians to the current popular progressive Cajun Music. Occasionally, you can hear live musical performances. You may also hear live phone interviews. You may also hear from musicians talking about their music.
