On today’s Garbage Garage, we’re celebrating Mardi Gras with some New Orleans-style music. Whether it’s New Orleans-based musicians Soul Rebels Brass Band or jazz-style singers like Jolie Holland and Melody Gardot, we’re going for the NOLA sound on the show today. Plus, there’s a fantastic new album by Tinariwen out that we’re sampling from, and other new tunes by Ten Fe, Tim Darcy, and a great BTR Live Studio track from Rosa.
Joe Virgillito chats with Prof. Gerald Friedman about COVID-19 and the case for Medicare For All. J. McVay and Jacqueline Soller discuss 2011 movie, ‘Contagion.’ Plus a preview of Scoville Unit’s upcoming BTR Live Studio session. | listen
