Mardi Gras Party on WRTI! March 4th, from 9 PM to Midnight

MardiGrasSaints.jpg

Take a trip to New Orleans with WRTI's J. Michael Harrison on Tuesday night! We're bringing NOLA directly to you in honor of Mardi Gras. Okay, so we don’t have the warm weather, the parades, or the fun cocktails…but we do have some of the best music from the Crescent City.

You'll hear music from some of New Orleans’ finest, like the Marsalis Family, Louis Prima, Irvin Mayfield, and, of course, Louis Armstrong.

There will also be music about, and inspired by, the birthplace of jazz. Be sure to join our second-line from 9 pm until midnight. We promise you'll feel the temperature rise as soon as you hear some good ol' New Orleans brass! Tuesday, March 4, 9 pm to midnight!

Maureen began her radio career at WRTI in 1999 while studying broadcasting at Temple University. Determined to make it in the entertainment industry, she took advantage of all the creative opportunities presented to her at WRTI - she hosted the overnight jazz broadcasts through her entire college career, she was an arts and culture reporter, and she soaked up the jazz biz from her many WRTI mentors.
