We are celebrating four years of “New Orleans All the Way Live” with live music recorded at festivals, in clubs and a house party in the Musician’s Village. We revisit some archived interviews with Paul Sanchez, Ivan Neville and John Blanchard, owner of Rock N Bowl. We also have a snowball in Uptown New Orleans and find out more about Festigals, coming up in June.
Everyone at WWOZ is deeply saddened by the violence at the Mother's Day Parade this past Sunday. Our prayers go out to the victims, their families, and everyone hurt and traumatized by the senseless violence. Our hearts also go out to the Original Big Seven Social Aid & Pleasure Club whose annual Second Line parade to celebrate life itself and Mother's Day was completely disrupted by this tragedy.
