David James presents three hours of great music to accompany you to wherever your Saturday night takes you.
American Routes is produced in New Orleans, and presents a broad range of American music: blues and jazz, gospel and soul, old-time country and rockabilly, Cajun and zydeco, Tejano and Latin, roots rock and pop, avant-garde and classical. The songs and stories on American Routes describe both the community origins of the music, musicians and cultures (the "roots"), and the many directions they take over time (the "routes").
