This week on Inside the Arts, the mystique of New Orleans piano wizard James Booker is creating a buzz at the New Orleans Film Festival. We talk with filmmaker Lily Keber about her in-depth documentary Bayou Maharajah.

A spooky weekend is in store for the younger set as the Boo Carré Halloween and Harvest Festival kicks off in the French Quarter. And Songs in the Key of Life, a Stevie Wonder opera, is in final performances at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center.
 

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 7:35 a.m.
