NPR is re-broadcasting it now, as an podcast now, and you can listen to it here —  http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast.php?id=510056

Jackie King is on the show with Willie, and they perform”Heart of a Clown”, “Gypsy”,  “Rain Day Blues”, “All of Me”.  Willie talks about playing and singing blues and Jazz, and growing up listening to gospel music.

Another fan uploaded the songs, and you can download them.  I haven’t tried to download them yet, so I don’t know how they work.
