WWOZ looks forward as we commemorate the sixth anniversary of Katrina. We've compiled Katrina-related community events, along with a feature report by our community partner The Lens and audio documentaries by show host George Ingmire that pay homage to New Orleans cultural figures and icons that passed in the aftermath of Katrina.
Impress your friends with a fancy dessert from one of our favorite soul food restaurants in New Orleans, Dooky Chase. Dooky Chase may be better known for its homestyle fried chicken and lunchtime buffets, but this is something worth whipping up just for the "oohs" and "ahhs."
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.
