We all know and love the great D.L. Menard for his unique voice and signature tune "La Porte en Arriere (The Back Door)". The song was written in 1962 and 50 years later it still is the most requested Cajun song ever. It's sold over 500,000 copies to date!

To honor the singer and the song, the Begnaud House - City of Scott Heritage Center is paying homage to D.L. Menard today at 5pm. (Right off the interstate in Scott; you can't miss it!) The event is free and the public is invited. Bring your family, lawn chair, ice chests, cameras or whatever you need for a great time. Mr. Menard will be available for autographs and pictures.

Don't forget we pay our respects to the greats like D.L. Menard and many more every Sunday evening here on 97.3 The Dawg with our Bayou Country Show. It's two hours of nothing but Louisiana music and it starts at 6pm. Tune in!
