Tune in to WUSC-FM tonight from 6-8 p.m. for a tour of the heart of Mardi Gras - New Orleans, Louisiana!

Mardi Gras music, Zydeco, Cajun, and Swamp Rock will be on the agenda as we sway, dance and sing our way through Shrove (or Fat, or Gras) Tuesday.

Throw your cares aside and celebrate with no thought to making penance on Ash Wednesday - where better to enjoy the revelry than on one of the longest running roots and blues radio shows in the country?

"I've got my tickets in my hand... I'm gonna go to New Orleans"... so, if you are not there, best bet is to be online at www.wusc.sc.edu (then click listen to stream the show to your device) or tune in from Columbia SC via your radio at 90.5 or HD-1 Columbia.

Here's a glimpse at our playlist:
Thanks and laissez bon temps roulez,
from Clair DeLune and RockyDawg, your hosts!

And please remember that gift giving is easy for your music lovers - www.papajazz.com has all your music needs and a few first-edition signed copies of my photographic essay, South Carolina Blues. If they sell out, or you live far away, you can find it at https://www.arcadiapublishing.com/9781467114721/South-Carolina-Blues

An art poster (11x/17) of the front cover of "South Carolina Blues" is available for sale by your host, Clair DeLune.

 Copies of the book, South Carolina Blues are available from the publisher, and wherever books are sold - in Columbia, signed copies are available from our favorite record shop, Papa Jazz on Greene Street for the cover price of $22 plus tax. And, as always, mail order signed first-editions are available from the author directly by sending a check or money order for $28 dollars to Clair DeLune at POB 5591 Columbia, SC, 29250; which includes price of book, tax and $4 S/H. Please indicate to whom you would like the book inscribed (please print clearly). A perfect gift for any Sandlapper, or music or history buff - or all three!

The print is available for $25, including postage and handling in the continental U.S.

As always we thank our underwriters, who help bring great music to the Midlands, because we could not imagine our show without their input and support:  Papa Jazz Record Shoppe and Word of Mouth Productions. You can link to these orgs by clicking on the visuals...
