New Orleans Calling

For one hour each week, NEW ORLEANS CALLING brings the music, stories, sounds, and people of the Crescent City to non-commercial radio stations around the country and the world. Using exclusive live performances and interviews, immersive sound, rare archival recordings, and all the musical depth of WWOZ, the program provides a window into New Orleans life for a listener not in the city, while bringing new authentic stories and surprises to discerning local WWOZ audiences. This is a real New Orleans radio program -- episodes have searched for the spirit of Louis Armstrong in the city's daily life, explored the influence of jazz legend Danny Barker on current brass bands, toured the city's famous cemeteries with an insider tour guide, interviewed both chefs and musicians on their secret creole recipes, and delved deep into WWOZ's own archives of R&B and jazz legends.
