Today we're celebrating the FUV Essentials of New Orleans, and the late Allen Toussaint is certainly high on that list.

So tonight on The Whole Wide World, I'm going to feature Toussaint's April 2009 visit to FUV, when his Joe Henry-produced album The Bright Mississippi was brand new. He had songs, stories, and wisdom to share, and it was an honor to have one of the greats at our Studio A piano.

My show starts at 6 p.m., the Allen Toussaint session will be on at about 8 p.m., and if you'd like, you can also listen to it anytime in the Vault.
