    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#809] Immigrating to America, I Burt has spent most of his life as a stranger reporting from strange lands and trying to understand what was going on. A few years ago he decided to look at his own country and try to discover the true history of our population. Each year the United States grants permanent residency to more immigrants than all the other nations of the world combined. Most people come here believing that with hard work and determination they will end up with a better life---more money and more freedom. In fact, everyone who is in the United States today is either an immigrant or the descendant of an immigrant. duration 25:02   STEREO TVG

    Infinity Hall Live [#103H] Keb' Mo' Contemporary blues musician and three-time Grammy winner Keb' Mo' takes the stage alongside his band of top musicians. With Les Falconer III on drums, Vail Johnson on bass, Michael Hicks on keyboards, Kevin So on keyboards and guitar and Jeff Paris on guitar, mandolin and harmonica, the band's full sound and Mo's incomparable blues style engulf the elated audience. Keb' Mo' - formerly known as Kevin Moore - was born in South Los Angeles to parents from the Deep South. Often described as a living link to the seminal Delta blues of the past, he describes his style as a combination of the music he grew up listening to: blues, country, soul and folk. "I'm kind of a hybrid version of all those things thrown together," he says. His multi-faceted career includes portraying one of his blues influences, Robert Johnson, in the 1998 documentary Can't You Hear the Wind Howl? Mo' and his band open the show at Infinity Hall with "Inside Outside, " a song from his most recent album, Reflection. Mo' describes the album as the "culmination of all of my influences throughout my career." He also treats the crowd to his slow groove single "The Whole Enchilada," which he describes as a song that "reminds us men that when you are out there courting and falling in love that there's just a few things to keep in mind." Television fans will recognize his tune "I See Love," the theme song from the CBS sitcom Mike & Molly. Plus, the band doesn't disappoint with "Life is Beautiful" from his 2006 release Suitcase, and several other songs from his Grammy award-winning albums. This program captures the energy of the crowd during Mo's rousing performance. The band closes the show on a high note with the inspirational "A Better Man," a song created for the charity organization "Playing for Change" which inspires peace in the world through music. duration 57:14   STEREO TVPG
