Bill in Alabama 'Coon Songs' Your Thoughts About Them (145* d) RE: Help: 'Coon Songs' Your Thoughts About Them 03 Mar 00

Several years agoI was working with another performer on an ETV documentary about the music of the War Between the States. One of the songs performed was -Year of Jubilo- which was written to be sung in dialect. The singer made some insightful changes and, in my opinion, did a fine job of maintaining the dialect without appearing to ridicule it or to seem condescending. One of the executives at the station insisted that the song be cut from the program. The executive was African-American. We finally agreed to delete that number.
