The Jewel Case: NOLA (02-20-20)


Ay la bas! With Mardi Gras right around the corner, we're heading to the Crescent City for this week's theme. New Orleans is probably the most music-drenched city in the world, and we'll be celebrating its rich heritage with tracks from everyone from Sidney Bechet to Fats Domino to Irma Thomas to Mystikal and most points in between. Mr. Toussaint will be a recurring figure, to be sure. Bake yourself a king cake, push back the sofa, and roll up the rug- it's gonna be a dance party.
