Wrap Up: Festing in Place, Fall 2022

We hope you enjoyed our recent Festing in Place event, which we produced with the Archive of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. From September 29 through October 2, we aired 60 archival Jazz Fest sets from the likes of Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers (among lots of others!), and also sets from festivals in Newport, RI and Telluride, CO. You can still catch what you missed in our Two Week Archive, but sets begin expiring on Thursday, October 13.

In Memoriam: Noelani Musicaro

It's with great sadness that we report the passing of WWOZ volunteer Noelani Musicaro on October 4. She was at home surrounded by her children, and her transition was very peaceful. Noelani, a WWOZ volunteer for eight years, was a familiar sight at our Jazz Fest hospitality tent and at events like Piano Night. She always had a warm and friendly smile and was truly an exemplar of kindness and positivity. She volunteered with many New Orleans organizations, including local FM station WHIV, where she had her own talk program. Noelani was much-loved and a true Guardian of the Groove, as evidenced by the second line in her honor, which happened on October 8. Our thoughts go out to her family, and to everyone who knew and loved her.

Carrot Ginger Coconut Shrimp Soup


Recipe: Carrot Ginger Coconut Shrimp Soup

This soup's combination of carrot, ginger, and coconut milk is delicious and comforting. Fennel adds another light-sweet note, and the result is both exotic and familiar and perfectly complements the shrimp. Once the shrimp preparation is done, this soup comes together very quickly and easily; it's filling and substantial, great for cooler weather.
