FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE! 8PM 28 AUGUST 2015 - ULTRAFOX AT THE GODS CAFE

 Ultrafox presents the finest in Le Jazz Hot from their recent performance at the Gods at ANU. French gypsy jazz in the infectious style of Django Reinhardt and The Hot Club of France.  Its music is typified by the muscular driving, swing rhythm of acoustic guitars and double bass.  Elegant swing , tender jazz ballads, gypsy waltzes and hot rhythm are just a few of the trademark sounds. Tonight the band plays in a quartet setting (two guitars and double bass with clarinet).  Formed in 2008 by veteran guitarist,  Peter Baylor, the band has enjoyed an ever increasing audience and a busy work schedule with appearances at major Australian  festivals. Peter Baylor (g/voc), Jon Delaney (g), Kain Borlase (string bass), John Hunt (clarinet).

Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.  FNL is sponsored by B2B, Canberra's leading business and government magazine.

"NEW ORLEANS CALLING" - 4PM Sat 29 August 2015

With such great response from the first airing last week, we present an encore airing of "After the Flood," the story of community, from WWOZ New Orleans.

Ten years ago, there was a storm, and then there was a flood, and they changed New Orleans forever. Many stories from that time have been told, but not this one: how WWOZ went off the air and could have been lost forever, if not for the efforts of hundreds of different people who loved the music and culture of New Orleans. And we’re letting those people tell the story themselves, on this special episode of New Orleans Calling.  Hosted by George Ingmire (WWOZ New Orleans).
