This Continuum presents three major early music sopranos with performances of the music they enjoy singing the most. The singers are Julianne Baird, Evelyn Tubb and the inimitable Emma Kirkby. All three of these ladies have produced dozens of CDs over the past three decades ranging from Greensleeves to the music of J.S. Bach. All are heard on this very delightful program. The recordings used are: Greensleeves (Baird, McFarlane) - Dorian DOR 90126, The Mad Lover (Tubb & Kelly) - Musica Obscura 070987, J. S.

On this week's show, we take a look at invasive species in our region and meet some people who live by the motto: if you can’t beat ‘em, eat ‘em.

Every Friday, coastal reporters from WWNO and Nola.com | The Times-Picayune come together to talk about the week in coastal news.

This week: a platform fire in the Gulf, concern around Sewerage and Water Board contracts and an effort to rebuild the coast from the sky.

On this week's edition of All Things New Orleans, we'll chat with Miriam Arkin and Casey Coleman, of Court 13 Arts, about their upcoming Always for Pleasure Festival.  Then, Jessica Rosgaard returns with Richard Campanella to discuss his CityScapes column for nola.com/The Times Picayune. 

And, the Green Project's Catherine Crowell talks "all things reuseable" as we approach America Recycles Day on November 15th.

American Routes Shortcuts: The Tedeschi Trucks Band

This week on American Routes Shortcuts, we feature Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks of the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Susan Tedeschi grew up outside of Boston in a family of grocery store owners. Derek Trucks was raised in Jacksonville, Florida, listening to the Allman Brothers, his uncle Butch Trucks’ band. Worlds apart, Susan and Derek each honed their chops at local blues jams and pursued musical careers destined to collide. Susan attended the Berklee School of Music, toured with the Dead, and released eight solo albums.

The Buffalo shrimp po-boy from Avery's on Tulane.
Ian McNulty

If you love po-boys, you already know how you like them. It’s sloppy roast beef or crispy shrimp, thin-sliced ham or fat fried oysters. I bet you even have a precise combination for how you like it dressed.

Just listen to some po-boy pros when they order at the counter. In their confident cadence and specifics, they can sound like surgeons gloved up for an operation. “Hot sausage. Dressed. No lettuce.” 

Dr. Michael White
Derek Bridges

What do you hear when he plays his clarinet?

Can you hear the bayou? The river? The French Quarter? People sitting on their stoops waiting for someone to deliver the news? Penny parties?

That’s not a clarinet in the doctor’s hands; it’s a time machine.

“I listened to Johnny Dodds’ recordings. I listened to Sidney Bechet. I listened to George Lewis. I listened to Edmond Hall. I listened to Omer Simeon, Barney Bigard, and so many others. And you listen to that and you say, ‘Wow, I would like to capture that feeling.'”

Former WWNO reporter Mallory Falk checked in with the school back in 2015, and today NolaVie's Kelley Crawford welcomes back Elizabeth Marcell and Monica Stevens to discuss what changes and developments have come to the school since then.
