EASTER/PASSOVER WITH AL GREEN
Our Easter/Passover show, as Nick Spitzer talks to the one-and-only Rev. Al Green about growing up in rural Arkansas and how soul music leads to saving souls—including his own. Plus Passover music from downtown trumpeter Steven Bernstein.

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE: EASTER
Celebrate the holiday with music for Easter, Passover and the spring season. We’ll dig into the vaults and hear interviews with gospel great Mahalia Jackson. Plus we’ll talk with Sacred Steel guitarist Calvin Cooke about how the spirit speaks through his instrument.

EASTER WITH DONALD HARRISON, JR. AND HOLMES BROTHERS
Easter weekend is a time for reflection and family, and our guests certainly fit the bill. Donald Harrison, Jr. is a saxophone player and New Orleans native now based in New York. Harrison’s ties to New Orleans run deep, musically and culturally. His work has long echoed strains of Mardi Gras Indian chants and street beats—not surprisingly as his late father was Big Chief of the Guardians of the Flame tribe, a position Donald Jr. has since assumed. Wendell and Sherman Holmes, plus longtime friend Popsy Dixon, make up the Holmes Brothers, a vocal group best known for putting their personal stamp on blues, gospel, country, pop and more. The brothers join us to talk about the transition from Christ Church, Virginia to New York and back again to home and family.


SPRING INTO EASTER WITH THE PASCHALL BROTHERS, CHARLIE LOUVIN AND THE SANTA MARIA PRODUCE COMPANY
Body, soul and Earth are rejuvenated at this special time of year when winter turns to spring. Spend some of it with Virginia-based gospel group the Paschall Brothers, who perform an in-studio, a cappella set. Then meet Charlie Louvin, who along with brother Ira made up the Louvin Brothers. Famous for their familial harmonies as much as for their hellfire and brimstone tunes like “The Drunkard’s Grave,” and “Satan is Real,” Charlie recalls the brothers’ heyday and talks about getting his second wind as a performer. And take a ride with Shreveport, Louisiana’s Santa Maria Produce Company in their trucks covered by hand-painted reproductions of da Vinci’s Last Supper and other religious iconography.
