SATURDAY NIGHT NEW ORLEANS Broadcasting from the heart of New Orleans French Quarter, this show is hosted by Jamie Dell’Apa on New Orleans’ own WWOZ Radio. The show features “music you’ve never heard by musicians you’ve never heard of”. This includes music from that time when rhythm and blues and rock and roll were emerging, but hadn’t yet become a predictable formula. Jamie’s presenting skills mirror the radio shows of the times, nothing staid or overly serious. Great stuff!
