Wednesday, December 24 — midnight to 3 a.m. Thursday
I have a tentative commitment from Santa Claus to come on my show on Christmas Eve, if he can get a break from sliding down chimneys. He says he'll bring Rudolph too, but I'll believe that when I see it.
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.
