About the show

from Wikipedia:
Fais do-do is a name for a Cajun dance party, originating before World War II. The parties were named for the gentle command ('go to sleep') young mothers offered bawling infants. According to early Cajun musician Edwin Duhon of the Hackberry Ramblers, "She'd go to the cry room, give the baby a nipple and say, 'Fais do-do.' She'd want the baby to go to sleep fast, 'cause she's worried about her husband dancing with somebody else out there."

This holiday mix is dedicated to the all the people who fish the bayous and coast south of New Orleans. It’s hard to keep your head up when it keeps getting slammed down. Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ike, and in 2010, the BP oil spill.

These folks will never beg for your help – but they sure could use it:
