Tomorrow Jan. 13th we'll be getting you ready for the big Danny Barker festivities this weekend with a special 100th birthday salute to Danny. Danny was born on Jan. 13th, so why should we wait for the weekend? We'll feature his work with Cab Calloway, Henry "Red" Allen, Blue Lu Barker and some rare Danny recordings from the early sixties as well as his later Orleans recordings.
Tune into WWOZ 90.7fm or wwoz.org, this Wednesday, January 7th (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) for a show dedicated to the streets and intersections of New Orleans.
Whether we're talking about 2nd and Dryades (where Mardi Gras indians practice at the site of the H&R bar) or Basin Street (formally a border of the Red Light District), New Orleans has always been defined in great part by locale.
Check out photos of the great Dave Bartholomew celebrating his birthday live in the WWOZ studio with his sons Ron, Don, and Dave Jr., and friends Cosimo Matassa, Bunchie Johnson, Mac Johnson, David Torkanowsky and more.
