PJ:The special guests welcomed in this episode include Susan Cowsill, originally of the family band The Cowsills. She's fronting the band that Annie and Harley are playing in. And I understand she's a New Orleans resident, too?

JJ: Susan Cowsill has lived in New Orleans since the early 1990s. As a child singer, Susan was the youngest member of the family band that made big hits in the 1960s. She now possesses a rich and expressive voice, which she sets to her own wonderful songs. We hear two of them "Just Believe It" and "Crescent City Sneaux." I recommend her latest recording, Lighthouse, which includes a beautiful version of the latter. You should also read Alex Rawls' story about Barry Cowsill in the Oxford American Southern Music issue. Susan has borne her share of Katrina-related tragedy.
