Happy first birthday, NOATWL! The audio documentary series, produced and hosted by ‘OZ deejay George Ingmire, investigates New Orleans culture against a backdrop of music, food, and live events. Here’s a peek behind the scenes as we chat with the man behind this syndicated WWOZ gem.
Check out these highlights from our Spring 2010 Membership Drive! We had dozens of great New Orleans musicians stop in to perform and chat live on the air — all to get YOU to help support 'OZ and the music of New Orleans. And we thank all of our volunteers, staff, musicians, and food donors for helping make the drive a success.
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.
We hope you enjoyed the live in-studio performances by musicians like Jon Cleary, Tab Benoit, Irvin Mayfield, Walter "Wolfman" Washington and more over the past 10 days. The Spring Membership Drive ends with a bang Thursday, March 11 after a mystery guest performance on David Torkanowsky's Blues Ball. Tune in from 2-4 p.m. to find out who it is!
French Quarter Fest is just around the corner! Tune in online or on the airwaves to catch plenty of live broadcasts from the 26th annual free music festival, including the Honey Island Swamp Band, Astral Project, Big Chief Bo Dollis Jr. & the Wild Magnolias, The Revealers, and many more. Plus get info on performers, schedules, and new stage locations.
