During Jazz Fest, WWOZ celebrates two of the senses that give our city soul — food and music. We’re creating a cookbook of recipes from local New Orleans musicians. We want our local musicians to be part of the excitement by submitting their favorite recipes for the cookbook.
The Essence Festival is a celebration of African American music and culture that takes place during the Fourth of July weekend at the Superdome in New Orleans. "The Party with a Purpose," as the Essence Fest is called, includes seminars, work shops and an art fair.
Now that we are starting to get those wonderful peaches at the Farmer's Market from Chilton County, Alabama, it's time to start thinking about cobblers, brown betties and one of our favorites crisps. Here is a quick, easy and definitely yummy peach crisp recipe from us to you.
Check out where our show hosts are planning to be during the 2008 Jazz Fest. Of course, when you’re at Jazz Fest you never know where you’ll end up, but here are their current picks. You can also make your own schedule with our Jazz Fest cubes.
This spring, the ‘OZ studios had a visit from a longtime listener and supporter in Melbourne, Australia. Sue Beeton came to check out the new French Market digs and meet the staff. She’d held a fundraiser for the station at her home, and mailed a check to the station. But it was a much better treat to meet her in person
We first found Marla Dixon — a personal trainer, musician and WWOZ fan in Toronto — through a google search for “WWOZ” and “blog.” We were looking for fans and members who support the station from afar. What we found was an inspiring young woman who’s put a lot of time, thought and effort into the city and its music. And she’s determined to do even more in the future.
