"It's My Party And I'll Fish Fry If I Want To" : THE WEEKEND MIX FOR NEW ORLEANS (just a few days late)
This past weekend saw the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina slip by with the same fanfare as....I don't know, the 4th Anniversary of Joan Rivers' 7th facelift. Such a shame.
I know, I know...shut up already about New Orleans.
NO! Not going to. I couldn't if I tried.
I wanted this music up on Friday for Burning Wood's "Weekend Mix," but as you may have heard, I had some computer issues. I did manage to piece this back together, so grab it, and enjoy some of the finest music from some of the finest musicians you'll find anywhere.
I want questions and comments and all inquiries made. I will tell you where to buy this music and how to support these musicians. Just ask. There are some rarities here, but you can start by clicking on the links below the song titles.
