WWOZ: Liveblogging

Mar 21, 2007 by

Alright out there Irma Thomas is in the studio, interviewing on Crossroads with Big D, it’s been a great one so far. George Ingmire is hanging out with them and asking some very incisive and penetrating questions.

WWOZ is one of our most important cultural resources. If you’re anything like me you found their stream to be a lifeline while in exile after the Storm. I almost broke out in tears when the stream came back up and suddenly a taste of home sounded from the tinny speakers of my laptop.

Everyone from here understands on a primal level that the two things that most resonate to New Orleanians are food and music. ‘OZ has been a bastion for the musical roots of our unique culture.

This is not just a radio station, it is a non profit engaged in the most important battle we face: the preservation of The New Orleans Sound in an era when it is in danger of becoming a conservatory lesson rather than an organic and growing tradition. Please consider picking up the phone and calling in a contribution. Even if it is a small one it will help. Donations can be made online here.
