Bury The Hatchet: John Sinclair Radio Show 256

I came back to WWOZ on this Tuesday night to join David Kunian for his Kitchen Sink show from 10:00 pm-midnight and help him celebrate the Carnival season by selecting and playing Mardi Gras music favorites and new releases, including cuts by the Hawketts, Professor Longhair, the Golden Eagles, Lucien Barbarin, the Wild Magnolias, Danny Barker & His Creole Cats, Roger & the Gypsies, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, the Wild Tchoupitoulas, Big Chief Peppy with Trombone Shorty, and the Bayou Renegades. Note the paucity of overlap with the programming of Tom Morgan earlier the same day (#254-255)—a tribute to the wealth of Mardi Gras music available today.

Go Get Your Big Chief: John Sinclair Radio Show 191

I was at Unified Indian Practice at the Handa Wanda club at 2nd & Dryades on the evening of Sunday, January 27, 2008, when I decided to whip out my compact Olympus 320M digital recorder and take down the proceedings, which were centered on Big Chief Little Bo of the Wild Magnolias, Big Chief Roddy of the Black Eagles, and assorted Indian singers who took over the mike from time to time in front of the massive drum choir on the stage behind them. I recorded again the next Sunday, when it was “Two More Days” until Mardi Gras, and then chopped the results down to an hour’s worth of Wild Indian music recorded in context just before Carnival Day.
