"Get in where you fit in" is the mantra of membership at WWOZ and all different folks from all walks of life help out regularly by donating time and money to the station. Some of our members, like Courtney, get creative by including 'OZ in their special occasion.
The Audubon Zoo is hosting it’s annual Swamp Fest, Nov. 5-6, bringing a some great South Louisiana music to the stages. Satuday, Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas are in the Performance Pavillion and the Lafouche Cajun Band from Lockport will be in the Swamp Exhibit.
On this week’s program we feature Susan Cowsill, a songwriter whose musical career started as a child with her family’s band, "The Cowsills." She continues to perform in New Orleans and today we listen to a performance recorded at New Orleans’s French Quarter Festival.
It's time to take the skeletons out of the closet, and put them in the yard! We might decorate ourselves and join in the ghost parade. We may take a peek into the mouth of horror, a dark cave of unknown things.
What lurks in the dark? What will we find when we stand at death's door?
The 6' to 9' Social Aid and Pleasure Club's 7th annual Halloween parade rolled Saturday evening from the 6th to the 9th ward, passing out candy, homemade toys and sheer holiday fun to neighborhood chidren en route. This year's theme was: "The End of Times Marches On,".
We're amped at 'OZ to be broadcasting live from Voodoo again this year, and we'll bring you all our favorite music. Currently confirmed include: Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk with Angelo Moore and Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Red Baraat and more! Stay tuned as we continue to announce additional acts to our live broadcast line-up.
We all love New Orleans. Through the best of times and the worst of times, we dedicate ourselves by truly LIVING for the city like no other community in the nation does. That’s why when I learned about NOAAHH, New Orleans Artists Against Hunger and Homelessness, (pronounced “Noah”, like the guy with the Ark) I had to spread the word about this organization.
'OZ will be broadcasting Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Ivan Neville's "Dumpstaphunk" and Stooges Brass Band live on November 5! Not only is it gonna be a fun time, it is also one of our member's presents to 'OZ!
As part of our work with Let's Be Totally Clear, we're broadcasting a smoke-free performance of Grammy Award winning Chubby Carrier, live from El Sido's Zydeco and Blues Club in Lafayette. Chubby's father passed away from lung cancer, and El Sido's is one stop on his "Breathing Easy Tour 2011."
