I'll be joined by a guest in the studio this week — Chris Dalbom (aka DJ CJ) founded WRIR's punk-rock program "Gabba Gabba Hey" back in 2005, when WRIR first went on the air.  He's now Global A Go-Go's New Orleans correspondent, and he's here to fill us in on what's up, globally speaking, in the Crescent City.

All the podcasts:

And about the image above: that's a map that Chris created linking up the artists name-dropped in Joe Strummer's song "Global A Go-Go" (this program's namesake and theme song) with the places where they're cited as being heard.  In case you've ever been curious, the lyrics are here:
