Collection Description

Historical Note

"Southways" was a weekly documentary radio show. Each week "Southways" explored a different person, place or event in the South. Although the programs were regionally focused, the show was broadcast on public radio stations across the country. "Southways" debuted on May 3, 1991.

"Southways" was produced and syndicated by the Regional Radio Network (RRN), a radio network established by the Southern Regional Council (SRC). The SRC established the network to produce and syndicate programs about the South and "Southways" was the first program the new network created. The SRC hoped RRN would fill a void in radio programming, because most radio shows were produced either locally for a particular city or state or nationally by large corporate networks.

Scope and Content Note

The "Southways" audio recordings consist of reel-to-reel and cassette tapes of "Southways" programs. The recordings cover a diverse range of topics from "Illiteracy in Savannah," "The Houma Indians of Louisiana," "Growing Up in the [Mississippi] Delta," to "Phosphate Mining in Florida," "High School Brass Band of New Orleans," and "Louisiana and David Duke." Besides these topical shows, "Southways" also featured profiles of intriguing southerners such as Stetson Kennedy, folklorist, historian and infiltrator of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as musicians Etta Baker, the "Queen" of the Piedmont blues, and "Queen Ida" Guillory, a Louisiana-born Zydeco musician who rose to prominence far from the bayou out on the West Coast.
