This week, we visit Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N Bowl, a bowling alley with a stage and a whole lot of history. We'll preview some upcoming gigs while also taking a walk down memory lane with John Blancher, the owner of the Rock 'N Bowl.
Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop" passed away today at the age of 50.

In the performers booth, tucked away in the corner of the Deutsches Haus at 200 S Galvez St, the words “Exactly Ten Minutes Too Late” printed boldly on a red Fuchsia Band T-shirt defied casual comprehension.
Great food and great music — that’s what New Orleans is all about.
Every day, WWOZ serves up a 24/7 platter of Jazz, Blues, and Cajun music, with side orders of Funk and Latin and some lagniappe thrown in for good measure. We dish it out from our studios and deliver it live from many of your favorite festivals. But we can only do it with your help!
We want our creative 'OZ fans to design our next T-shirt, so we're holding a contest! We’re looking for something that combines a New Orleans vibe with the warm fuzziness of the WWOZ family. We'll put the winning design on a limited edition T-shirt, which will be available at our Swamp Shop. The deadline is August 1, so start drawing!
