WWOZ's live broadcasts take you to local festivals, clubs, churches and the very streets of New Orleans. We also broadcast live from music festivals and other special performances across the U.S. and around the world. Schedule is subject to change.
Thanks to Audix Microphones for supplying hardware for our WWOZ Performance Studio and helping our in-house live broadcasts sound as good as possible.
On Friday, March 13, we'll be ending the Spring Membership Drive in style! OZ is broadcasting live from Kermit's Mother In Law Lounge in the Tremé, and you're invited to join us. We'll bring the live music, WWOZ DJs and throw a party. You'll be able to come by and get your membership in person, or just hang out and enjoy the company.
We'll be at the club, at 1500 North Claiborne from 11am to 7pm. Check back closer to March 13th for a full list of performers and a schedule of the mayhem we're planning for our listeners!
