Aaron Neville has lent his honeyed voice and lilting melodies to over 50 years of songs, and now he brings that special tone to a new album of doo-wop classics. Produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, it's called My True Story, and an audience of FUV members and I were lucky enough to have Aaron himself stop by Studio A for a live preview, with that one-and-only voice. The album is out next week, but we have another preview for you: Take a First Listen to every song on My True Story.

Tonight On the Whole Wide World: Introducing Lake Street Dive

by Rita Houston

Join us on tonight on The Whole Wide World for an exclusive premiere performance from rising stars, Lake Street Dive. After coming across their cover of the Jackson Five classic "I Want You Back" on YouTube, I invited the conservatory-trained quartet to be the opening artists for our Holiday Cheer for FUV show happening next Wednesday at The Beacon. Just as I expected, this band is much more than a covers project. Their original songs are fun, catchy, and masterfully performed.

Aaron Neville is a favorite son of New Orleans and one of its great voices. He continues his five-decade career with the Joe Henry-produced new album 'I Know I've Been Changed,' and during an interview with host Rita Houston in FUV's Studio A, Neville shared a few songs at our piano.
