Support WWOZ on Giving Tuesday, November 28

Moving, in addition to being occasion for a second line, is expensive! So if WWOZ is an enriching presence in your life, please consider donating on #GivingTuesday, November 28. WWOZ remains New Orleans' community radio station and we are proud to serve our worldwide audience. Our sincere thanks for your support in this time of transition.

Final Live Set from the French Market

We marked the end of an era here at our WWOZ French Market Building location on November 1. The Treme Brass Band wrapped it up with the final live set in our performance studio, but they didn't stay there--this party hit the broadcast studio, office, and even the hallway outside! Check out the full video below, plus photo highlights, at the link below. In the meantime, we're packing up, and we'll move to Jax Brewery in phases throughout November. Stay tuned because even though we're moving the studio, there'll be no interruption in the music!

Thanksgiving Recipes

For your dining pleasure, here's a menu's worth of Thanksgiving recipe ideas. Many of them, while traditional, are just a little bit different, like Kermit Ruffins' Barbecue Smoked Turkey, Cranberry-Jalapeño-Lime Salsa, Day-After-Thanksgiving Turkey & Sausage Gumbo, and Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.
