Notes From New Orleans

Fridays at 8:35 a.m.

Notes from New Orleans is a peek inside the life and culture of the Crescent City. Sharon Litwin, president and co-founder of NolaVie.com, covers all aspects of the unique and vibrant contributions of this creative society.

From established and emerging visual artists to the new breed of young entrepreneurs; from extraordinary musicians to world class performing artists; from Mardi Gras Indians to pop up restaurants — whether it’s going on Uptown, Downtown or Back of Town, their stories are sure to show up on Notes from New Orleans.

Listeners may be familiar with Richard McCarthy, host of the Farmer's Market Minute. But perhaps you haven't heard that his ongoing efforts with the Crescent City Farmer's Market have garnered him an award with Southern Living. McCarthy recently spoke with Sharon Litwin about the work he's done to bring food directly from the field to your table. 

Listeners familiar with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra have probably heard of its conductor, Carlos Miguel Prieto. Although his charming disposition is immediately recognizable to audiences old and new, many do not know about Prieto's personal journey to the center of the stage. Listen as he discusses this and the friends he's bringing with him.

Although there's been a neighborhood bar on Banks Street for decades, many New Orleanians might not think of it as the epicenter of St. Patrick's Day without the help of Stephen Paterson

Despite having roots in the 1940's, the field of landscape architecture didn't really blossom until the early 1970's. Architect Lake Douglas explains the rise of his profession and how this particular branch of the LSU College of Art & Design contends with the best in the nation. 

Doug Meffert has been appointed the first executive director of Audobon Louisiana, a localized branch of the National Audubon Society.

Park Ranger and musician Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes chats with Sharon Litwin about his involvement with a Mardi Gras Tradition nearly two hundred years old.
