TV Times - - Friday -

the sec­ond leg of Regi­nald D Hunter’s jour­ney through the mu­si­cal land­scape of the US South sees him in Ge­or­gia, his home state, and Alabama. He meets Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mus­cle Shoals stu­dio founder Rick Hall, gospel leg­ends the Blind Boys of Alabama and Rainy night in Ge­or­gia writer Tony Joe White. And that’s all be­fore vis­it­ing the At­lanta church where Martin Luther King preached his ser­mons on non-vi­o­lent protest. Then it’s on to meet­ing Chris Bridges, aka Lu­dacris, the rap­per and ac­tor who ex­plains the ‘Dirty South’ style to Regi­nald. You cer­tainly can’t ac­cuse this show of not pack­ing a lot in!
