On the February 5 show, we will suspend our normal features and defer a few listener requests as we do an all-New Orleans show in celebration of Mardi Gras. There will still be a gospel record of the week... from New Orleans, of course.

Speaking of Mardi Gras, my friend David April will be AT Mardi Gras... I'll be filling in for him during his normal time this Tuesday, "Fat Tuesday", February 8. That's two hours of Roots of Rhythm and Blues, beginning at 7 p.m., and the Gospel Train from 9 to 10 p.m. I anticipate David calling and going on the air live reporting from the festivities.

We have also confirmed that on Saturday February 19 we will have as in-studio guests Billy Taylor of the Castelles and later Orioles, and John Hayes from the Dreams. It'll be fun discussing how it was in the mid-fifties singing in Philly.
