Cyndi Lauper joins us on Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour this week to discuss her 11th studio album, Detour (available now from Sire Records), which finds her covering traditional Country/Rockabilly/Western Swing tunes.  We also talk about her early rockabilly roots while in her band Blue Angel and the NY scene at the time.  We'll hear a couple of tracks from Levi & The Rockats and Robert Gordon (artists Cyndi would see in NY around that time) as well as a new B-side from Dion!

*Note that every attempt was made to clear up the cell phone audio in certain spots from the interview but such is the nature of the cell sound sometimes.
