To celebrate the life of this unique talent, every song on this week’s episode of the syndicated broadcast radio show, “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight” was written by Allen Toussaint. You’ll hear Bonnie Raitt, Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, Maria Muldaur, Boz Scaggs, Robert Palmer, Little Feat, and some New Orleans-based favorites, including Lee Dorsey and Irma Thomas.
