My dear readers, today is Mardi Gras, the culmination of the Carnival season down here in New Orleans. The city has shut down except for the parties and parades, and the greatest party on Earth is hitting its high point.
Being a New Orleans based blogger, today I will be out and about, enjoying our yearly bacchanal. Regular radio blogging will resume on the morrow.
If you wish to tune in and catch some of the holiday, and its fantastic music, check out the Mardi Gras offerings (including web streams) from our local radio stations:
- WWOZ 90.7 FM – Community Jazz and Heritage Radio
- WWL FM 870 AM/105.3 FM – News, Talk and Sports
- WTUL 91.5 FM – Tulane University College Radio
Happy Mardi Gras!
