New Orleans Music Scene

Here’s your Fat Tuesday line-up!

11:00 a.m.     In the Spotlight: Irma Thomas, The Soul Queen of New Orleans

A contemporary of Aretha Franklin who never seemed to reach that plateau for some unexplained reason. But Irma Thomas is a rare bird, and is heralded as The Soul Queen of New Orleans for a reason.

The music of New Orleans is as eclectic as its people. We’ve got everything in this playlist — jazz, brass, cajun, zydeco. Some of the best musicians on the planet have been born in Louisiana, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Lucinda Williams, and Dr. John. We’ve got them in here too. Come join the fun!

6:00 p.m.      Album of the Week: The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 by The Traveling Wilburys

8:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of George Harrison

Happy Birthday, George Harrison! Whether a Beatle, a Wilbury, or a solo artist, George is sorely missed. We celebrate his birth and his life on this earth today.

Released in 1988, and thus began a magical journey indeed for all of us with the Wilburys: Spike (George Harrison), Clayton (Jeff Lynne), Muddy (Tom Petty), Boo (Bob Dylan) and Lefty Jr. (Roy Orbison; named posthumously). There has not been another supergroup like it. There may not ever be.

This week begins a musical experience that extends far beyond the Mardi Gras, so be sure to tune us in!

traveling-wilburys-photography-1280-750px

Here’s the line-up:

10:00 a.m.    The Beatles: The Complete Apple Records Rooftop Concert

The fans loved this impromptu concert, but the British Bobbies were beside themselves trying to figure out where the music was coming from. It stopped traffic in the middle of London on a work day.

1:00 p.m.      Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: Live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Here’s some material you don’t hear every day, like Girl on LSD, Cabin Down Below and a spectacular 11-minute jam on one of my all-time favorite Petty songs, It’s Good To Be King.

4:00 p.m.      The Ungovernables Report

Our third and final airing over the weekend.

6:00 p.m.      In the Spotlight: The Music of The Traveling Wilburys

They didn’t do it for money. They didn’t go on the road. They were five friends who enjoyed each other’s company and had a blast making music together. Add legendary drummer Jim Keltner, and you cannot go wrong. We think it shows.

11:59 p.m.    Orson Welles’ Original Broadcast: War of the Worlds

What might seem amateurish to us today scared the living shit out of everyone back in 1938. Get the popcorn ready.
