How has New Orleans fared in the decade since the levee breaks in the wake of Hurricane Katrina? Trying to answer the question, we listen back to the music and musicians who helped the city's culture to stay afloat, including Allen Toussaint and Irma Thomas. Also scenes from the Superdome roof, where workers repaired of a 9.7 acre hole, and Cajun musicians Michael and David Doucet on a 100 years of hurricanes. Finally humorist Harry Shearer and Creole bandleader Deacon John talk today about their hopes for New Orleans’ tomorrow, as the landscape of culture and economy changes.
