Encore, August 17

In honor of National Joke day, Aug 16, we're listening to some great Cajun story tellers and jokesters.  We've got two of the famous Pascal story tellers Burke Guillory and Bee Deshotel as well as Evelia Boudreaux and Marion Marcotte.  Hopefully you'll pick up on some new Cajun French vocabulary.  It's a good show for it!
