Swamp Pop, Cajun fiddle and zydeco – direct from the original 45rpm releases that spun in every other jukebox and radio station in South Louisiana during the 1950s/60s. All selections culled from inherited 45s, local flea market finds and bazaars. Part one can be found, here: Fais Do-Do: A Swamp Pop Honky Tonk.
