Zydeco Fred at WAMU.

Fred Carter, better known as Texas Fred the Zydeco Cowboy, was born and raised in Southeast Texas, where he became fascinated with zydeco and its origins. Upon landing in the D.C. region, he shared his love for the music in the form of a local radio show he hosts and programs called “The Trail Ride.” Listeners hear a range of musical genres, including zydeco, Cajun, country, blues and R&B, along with conversation on a variety of topics. He joins us to explore his passion for the music and culture behind zydeco.
