Great producers, great tracks!

Sometimes even the best artists can't break through until they work with the right producer. Take Bonnie Raitt -- who, despite nine fine albums, was still more or less a cult figure.

Her 10th album, Nick of Time, produced by Don Was (left), won the 1989 Grammy for Album of the Year, and catapulted her to broader fame. That was no coincidence.

This week's Big Fat Wide Americana Hour presents a couple of great songs from each of three of the most successful music producers ever -- Willie Mitchell, Don Was and Owen Bradley.

Plus, of course, our usual eclectic variety -- soul, americana, folk, blues, country and more. Some of it classic. Some of it brand new!

Among the artists featured:

Delbert McClinton * John Mellencamp

Al Green * Ray Charles

Matt Patershuk * Amelia White

Patsy Cline * Crystal Gayle

Peter Wolf * Emily Barker

And so many more. Don't miss it. Hear it here. And turn it up!
