WWOZ show hosts have eclectic tastes and personalities, but one thread runs through them all-- a big love for music and New Orleans. They also tend to know where the party's at whether you're looking for brass, blues, jazz, rock, performance art, or anything else.
Join guest host Alski on the Block Party this week with special guest dj Tarik from the land of Prince. A transplanted local, he is a show host at our sister station in Minneapolis KFAI. Tarik will be doing a dj set spinning rare and funky 45's.
By popular request, the deadline has been extended for you to join us for year #2 of the fun new marching krewe, rolling again as part of the KreweDelusion parade on Saturday, January 31, 2015, following Krewe du Vieux.
My first show of the year, on Saturday morning January 3, 2015 will feature traditional jazz named for various New Orleans places, like Mahogany Hall Stomp. I will discuss these places and how some of them influenced the jazz we listen to today.
