Podcast of the Broadcast Tribute to Songwriter-Musician Allen Toussaint

Screen shot 2015-11-15 at 1.51.24 PMThis week, a great songwriter and musician passed away. Allen Toussaint suffered a heart attack after a show in Madrid, Spain, and the world lost a New Orleans treasure.

Allen Toussaint’s music became #1 hits: “Southern Nights” sung by Glenn Campbell, and “Working in a Coal Mine” sung by Sam Cooke were a couple of tunes that topped the charts. But Allen worked with just about everyone in the industry, from Paul McCartney to Elvis Costello.

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.
