The Main Event: John Sinclair Radio Show 427

Episode 427 of the John Sinclair Radio Show—our Mardi Gras show for 2012—is coming out of the Who Dat Café at the corner of Mandeville & Burgundy in the Bywater district of New Orleans, just down the street from where I’m staying with Dr. Prof. Barry Kaiser and Mary Gottschalk Moses during the Carnival season. This program was assembled last night at the Frenchy Gallery on Oak Street and finished off here at the Who Dat Café on this rainy Saturday evening before Fat Tuesday, with Carnival favorites by the ReBirth Brass Band—celebrating their Grammy award last week—and Professor Longhair, Roger & The Gypsies, the Wild Magnolias, Dr. John, 101 Runners, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Walter “Wolfman” Washington & the Roadmasters, and the BlueBrass Project.
