WTF:  Katrina Five Year Anniversary presents:

What the Fontaine?!WTF:  Katrina Five Year Anniversary

"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."

The next few days mark the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans and the resulting devastation caused by it and the floodwall collapse, not only in Louisiana, but Mississippi and Alabama, too.  After starting off tonight's show with a few songs by bands playing in town the next several days, I'll reprise the radio show I hosted on WDCE at the end of a long, emotional week five years ago.  Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Ray Charles, many more, 9-11pm tonight.
