Holiday time in New Orleans is a chance to catch up with old friends at home, eat local traditional local, and immerse yourself in a city that knows how to enjoy itself. Christmas in the Crescent City is fun. So in this episode we're paying holiday visits to some musicians at home, and then chatting about Creole holiday foods and feasts with a James Beard Award winning chef. And we're listening to some classic seasonal songs given a New Orleans touch, as well as some playful original holiday tracks by great local musicians. And we end at a bonfire on the Mississippi levee, guiding Papa Noel on his way on Christmas Eve. Hosted by George Ingmire (from WWOZ New Orleans).
