THIS JUST IN - from Bill deTurk!!
Wanted to let you all know about something special happening on tomorrow’s (Friday, 3/19) show. Legendary documentary filmmaker, Les Blank, in town this weekend as part of the Ogden Museum’s Art of Southern Film Series, will be on from about 11:15 – 12. From his camera work in New Orleans on the classic, Easy Rider, to his 40+ films that followed, Les has made several fabulous documentaries focusing on the beautiful and unique people and culture that is Louisiana.
On an unrelated WWOZ note, I also hope to be treated to a visit from show favorite Amanda Shaw and Mark Adam Miller.
Bill deTurk’s Louisiana Music Party can be heard on alternating Fridays, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., locally on WWOZ at 90.7 on your FM dial or around the Universe at wwoz.org.
