Dr. John

National Public Radio has named Dr. John's "You Might Be Surprised" (from his new CD The City That Care Forgot) as its "Song of the Day," praising the doctor's "grizzled, gumbo-soaked voice" (sigh -- "gumbo-soaked"? Is that like "whiskey-soaked"?).

NPR also profiled the man and his music last month, and so did Gambit's Alison Fensterstock.
