Welcome to the Jungle
Why are there so many songs about the "jungle?" Hundreds of songs from country and western to disco and every style in between. Jungle songs? Imagine oooga boogas, oongowas, monkey and elephant noises and way too many Tarzan yells all put to music.
What a wonderful show today. It was fortunate that I had the studio set when Tab Benoit came in late on George's show so we could bring him to you in best form. I really enjoyed engineering that set and can't wait to listen to the recording. Crossroad got about a 15 minute late start but you all came thrrough like the heros that you are 50 new /renewing members on today show, double the goal.
For tomorrow's "Sittin' At The Crossroad" my friend Big Daddy O' will join me for the whole show and play some music for us LIVE. My other guest had to cancel due to 'work', she's a movie star too. Olga will join me in two weeks for a live set.
Bob Andrews has been in the music scene since the late 60s, taking part in UK Pub Rock before going to produce a number of great records including "There She Goes" by The Las. He made his way to New Orleans in the early 90s - collaborating with everybody from Marva Wright to John Mooney to Alex McMurray. He now holds down a weekly gig at Dos Jefes.
Join us Wednesday March 3rd when the small hand on the clock is on ten and the big hand is on twelve as we play at least two hours of the music of our "Musical Heroes" Dave Bartholomew and Cosimo Matassa.
Join Tom Morgan on the Tuesday New Orleans Music Show from 11 am to 2 pm for 1949 in Louisiana music. The show will continue its look at the music of New Orleans and Louisiana on a year by year basis. Tomorrow's show will feature the first recordings of Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Percy Mayfield and others.
On the heels of a new mayor sans foot in mouth disease, a Superbowl win lifting the Aints curse, and Mardi Gras with some new suits and old friends, I figured it’s time to celebrate something else, something special.
