90.3 KEDM Public Radio debuts a new music format this Memorial Day Weekend.  The new format is called The Boot, a reference to the nickname for the shape of Louisiana. 

"The Boot" features Louisiana artists and regional favorites.  It's a Southern gumbo made up of blues, soul, funk, zydeco, and swamp favorites.  Local favorite bands are also part of the mix.
