As we say farewell to 2010 and welcome in another year, please take a moment to think about what you love about WWOZ. Together, we can ensure that WWOZ will continue to be the music and cultural heart and soul of this great city. Help 'OZ by making a year-end gift.
What is Alt-Xmas? It's Xmas music without the perky holiday cheer, Xmas with sass, sauciness and satire: talking back to Santa, sexing up to Santa, mamboing to Santa, all kinds of bluesin' and soulin' rather than carolin'.
This next Thursday, I will be honored to have , both Dave Bartholomew & Bob French, visit me in " my living room ".

So we will have alot to talk about .&, of course, I will be playing some Dave & Bob music, Do listen !!
WWOZ Volunteer Danielle Small interviewed Show Host Gentilly Jr., the second oldest DJ at WWOZ for the OZone newsletter and in honor of OZ's 30th anniversary. He shares his stories of his tenure over the last 28 years, from Tipitina's to Armstrong Park and beyond.
Tune in from 6 to 9 a.m. CST, Friday, December 17, 2010. There will be a few conventional Christmas songs, done in an unconventional way, but most of the show will celebrate what I consider to be the main messages of the season, Peace on earth, and Joy to the world.
Join me at The Jazz Crossroads for the Christmas show!
