Tribute to Toussaint Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Sat, Jan 2, 2016 -- 10:00 PM

Allen Toussaint, one of music's most prolific songwriters, composers and producers, has worked with Dr. John, B.J. Thomas, Boz Scaggs, Paul McCartney, Patti LaBelle, The Pointer Sisters, Fats Domino, Elvis Costello, Art Neville, Aaron Neville and The Rolling Stones. As a philanthropist, he helped raise more than $1 million for the hungry and homeless in his native New Orleans. To show their deep appreciation for his music and charitable acts, New Orleans Artists Against Hunger & Homelessness (NOAAHH) honored Allen on his 75th birthday with a concert at Harrah's Theatre. Cameras captured this momentous, once-in-a-lifetime event, which featured Elvis Costello, Dr. John, Trombone Shorty, Irma Thomas, Deacon John, Joe Henry, Cyril Neville, and naturally, Allen himself. Produced by the team behind Fats Domino: Walkin' Back to New Orleans, A TRIBUTE TO TOUSSAINT weaves together footage from the concert, interviews with fellow musicians Cyndi Lauper, Robert Plant, Jimmy Buffett and others, and segments profiling Allen's many accomplishments - both in the studio and on the streets.

    • 2/22/17: Fremont Peak tower transmissions, including KQET DT25

      (DT25.1 through 25.3) Recent storms have taken out dozens of trees on Fremont Peak, which in turn have taken down power lines leading to the transmission tower located on the peak.
