Americana heads west to sun-soaked Los Angeles. Guest host David Willis is joined by satirist, comedian and commentator Harry Shearer to examine the week's top news through lively discussion, and maybe even a song.

David takes flight with Amelia Earhart, but this Earhart has no record of crashing - she sticks to reporting the traffic over the packed streets of Los Angeles. David rides in the news helicopter with this distant relative of the first lady in flight.

It's a thin line between loving the entertainment world and causing trouble. David Willis tags along with the LA's paparazzi to learn more about the industry and to discuss how much is too much love of the stars - even for Hollywood.

American country music singer Toby Keith visits Americana with songs that embody the spirit of the USA. Keith's music tackles topics from beer, to trucks, to romance, and discusses how politics, too, can become intertwined.
