Tonight, in the ongoing series of bringing different voices, your voices, our voices to the Covid-19 epidemic that's changing our lives, two really interesting interviews. Dwayne Brashears, from down in New Orleans, former program director at WWOZ (best radio station in the country) and we talk everything; JazzFest (which would be going on now), Mardi Gras culture, Mardi Gras Indians and Super Sunday, how Covid-19 is and will affect musicians, venues, restaurants from here forward, and as a long time Burning Man attendee, Dwayne and I talk cancelled festivals. (Annnddd of course, being a bit homesick, the intro music tonight is Galactic, and the outro is Allen Toussaint, and Mac (Dr. John). Our other guest is my good friend Elizabeth Whitacre, Buffalo resident and small business owner, and also probably one of the best card readers I know, we talk that, and what she saw beforehand, and keeps seeing now, and we talk about effects on small business, and we talk about trauma response, and keeping a business alive during this time. Free to download, stream or listen to, always.
