As some of you may know, I spent the last week on a radio mission to the 41st Annual Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans (talk about taking one for the team). During part of my trip, I was unleashed on the festival with a "Production Krewe" pass and my audio equipment. I talked with hundreds of people, ate at least five times my weight in delicious Jazz Fest food, and, of course, listened to LOTS of music. Over the next few days, I'll be editing and posting some of my material. Here are the first two pieces, with love from New Orleans.
