The newest installment of "Guardians of the Groove" (see below for more on the series) aired on WWL-TV last night. WWOZ's Action Jackson talked with Landry Walker High School Band Director Wilbert Rawlins Jr. about the challenges of music education in New Orleans.
WWOZ is 33 years old--and yet we feel so young! Please join us on Thursday, December 5 and Saturday, December 7 to celebrate. On December 5, we'll be at the place where it all started, back in December of 1980: Tipitina's. And on Saturday, December 7, WWOZ and Kermit Ruffins invite you to a Block Party from 12 noon to 4 pm, at Kermit's Speakeasy on 1535 Basin Street.
Join us this Saturday midnight to 3am Sunday morning for "music you've never heard by musicians you've never heard of..." Music from golden age of Americana, the 1950s to 1970s, when race and popular records broke though the separation barriers.
