On January 23, the Newman School Jazz Band visits WWOZ for "Cuttin' Class", a series of live in-studio performances by middle and high school age students in celebration of music education in the Greater New Orleans area, made possible by Coventry and Aetna.
We're happy to share a test (or Beta) version of a new streaming player for wwoz.org, which enhances the experience of listening to WWOZ online. It uses a responsive design, so it will adapt to a wide variety of screen sizes, and it's based on HTML5 rather than Flash, so it will work on Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad, as well as other modern operating systems and devices. Check it out and tell us any problems or comments.

Therefore, per MACCNO, today's rally at 11am outside City Hall will still go on as scheduled.
