A Perfect Holiday Gift for the OZillian in Your Life!

Take a holiday shopping shortcut: our fine art print "WWOZ Second Line" is already signed, numbered and ready to ship! All the proceeds of this limited edition print, created by artist J. Pierre, support WWOZ. The print depicts the music and life of New Orleans with a joyful second line winding through the streets of the French Quarter. The cityscape is richly painted and features a winding piano keyboard as well as the Crescent City Connection and the Mississippi River.

On Saturday December 4, from noon to 6 pm, we'll celebrate our 41st birthday by broadcasting a six-hour program, "The Story of WWOZ," covering the epic history of the station from its founding to the present day. You'll hear interviews, performances, and program excerpts from the station's 41 years on the air, including the voices of many beloved WWOZ show hosts, past and present.

Volunteer Profile: Ava Daniel-Johnson

Volunteer Ava Daniel-Johnson, born and raised in Gretna (McDonoughville), first heard about WWOZ in 1991 as a Jazz Fest Volunteer for the Jazz & Heritage Foundation. When Jazz Fest ran out of open shifts, Ava was "told to call 'OZ because they needed people. I am very happy I did this. Best decision ever! Volunteering is important to me because it has given me opportunities to meet people from diverse backgrounds." Ava Daniel-Johnson is an outstanding volunteer: she's highly motivated, efficient, and works hard. We are so grateful to have her on the 'OZ team. Thank you, Ava!

Recipe: Pumpkin Chiffon Pie

Here's a way to be true to holiday tradition (it's a pumpkin pie!), while upping your pie game with something different. The airy chiffon filling is produced by folding meringue and gelatin into a mixture of spices and pumpkin.
