*not* sleepytime down south

May 8, 2011

There’s been a lot of great music happening down South recently, with both the Festival International de Louisane and the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

This week’s World of Music is a two-hour parade of some of the best, most festive sounds from the Caribbean, Brazil, Louisiana and of course – New Orleans.

Bo Dollis, Professor Longhair, Doctor John, they’re all coming over for the party. You better git on over too. Bring your mask. Beads are on the house.

World of Music is a boogie-down second line of blues, jazz, poetry, and  world music every Monday from 3-5pm ET on the Radiator.  Online, or at 105.9FM if you’re listening in Burlington, VT.
