Greetings and happy turkey day to you from the Big Easy! I’m out here for the holiday, stumbling from one spectacle to the next, eating like crazy and getting down (and trying to get back up again). No time to write, my hands are greasy and I can’t sit, but stay tuned for a full report, with pictures.
Meanwhile, listen here and you won’t be sorry– (why does the blues make me so happy? What music does it for you? And where are you for the holiday?): http://www.kpcp883.com
(Note: This link is to a spectacular radio station I found when I was up near Baton Rouge. KPCP plays mostly from the 40’s and 50’s “because anything older is going to be a scratchy 78–OK once in a while but hard on the ears when we are all accustomed to CD quality.” They don’t play music on Sunday (church?) or Tuesday nights (they air the local school board meetings) and on December 26 they’ll stop playing xmas tunes and go “back to the blues… and a little Zydeco to make it interesting…until Mardi Gras.”)
