On Backbeat we don't stick to any one genre, and this week's show provides lots of reasons. Singers like Ray Charles make pop hits from gospel songs, gospel singers make pop hits, or gospel hits from pop songs. Sometimes you can't tell which came first, and the stakes aren't worth fighting about in court. Just ask Paula Watson who had her hit record copied exactly by a bigger star. All this is filled out by music from Africa, Jamaica, Alberta and the Louisiana Bayou.
