George Porter, Jr. will be joining us on the New Orleans Music Show today around 12:30pm CT! Host Murf Reeves will talk to him about his new album and go through it, track-by-track.

And at noon, hear an interview with Mark Johnson, the founder of Playing For Change! Their latest "song around the world" is a version of the Mardi Gras favorite 'Iko Iko.' This song features Dr. John in one of his last known recordings, along with the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, plus Ivan Neville, Donald Harrison, and George Porter, Jr., and more. This video and song unites musicians from Central Africa’s Congo to New Orleans’ Congo Square, reconnecting hearts and minds around the world through music.
