The Nightfly #2015.07 - Mardi Gras Parade - Carnival Spectacular 2015

From WERU | Part of the UpFront Soul (formerly The Nightfly with Sanguine Fromage) series | 01:57:59

It's Carnival Time! The Nightfly gives you a seat in the reviewing stand as the Mardi Gras parade rolls by. We'll bring you big noise from brass bands and watch the Mardi Gras Indians march. Get out your beads, cut yourself a slice of king cake, and join the parade!

Big_chief_monk_boudreaux_small It's Carnival Time! This week on The Nightfly, we give you a seat in the reviewing stand as the Mardi Gras parade rolls by. We'll bring you big noise from the Rebirth, New Birth, and Soul Rebels brass bands...and many more! We'll watch the Mardi Gras Indians parade as we hear funky sounds from late, great Big Chief Bo Dollis & The Wild Magnolias, White Eagles, and of course, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. Get out your beads, cut yourself a slice of king cake, and join the parade! Each hour can stand alone or can be aired together.

If your station is airing The Nightfly as a weekly series, this episode would be for the week of 2/15. Since it's a Mardi Gras show, it can air anytime between 1/6/15 and 2/17/15. If you air The Nightfly on 2/18/15 or after, I suggest picking up an old show (perhaps #2015.01 - http://www.prx.org/p/139444 ), since once Ash Wednesday comes, the Carnival season is over, and we have to pack up our beads until next year!
