The flooding caused by Hurricane Katrina extended well beyond New Orleans and into the hearts and minds of anyone who’s ever spent time there. I have so many wonderful memories of the place and they all came rushing back as I watched the disaster unfold on television. It took a while, though, before it felt appropriate to even talk about those memories. This podcast is how I chose to pay tribute to the Big Easy, an American city unlike any other.
I hope you enjoy both the stories and the music. Feedback most welcome, of course. And if you can recall a New Orleans moment when time stood still for you, click the trackback button and have at it. I’m always up for a good story.
