Big Easy Corrections and Additions


Re: WWOZ, the non-commercial radio station that dedicates itself to the preservation of the city's musical heritage: I wrote that it was still playing mp3s of old broadcasts. It's only doing that, simulcasting the feed of its home in exile, WFMU in New jersey, at night. Daytimes, the station is now live, if sometimes down for transmitter repairs, from temporary studios in Baton Rouge.
Re: live music: the vast majority of the smaller clubs is up and running. The House of Blues is not open yet, and both the Funky Butt and Donna's are closed, as of now. Angeli on Decatur, which did not have live music pre-K, does now.
