2012-02-17: Mardi Gras / Carnival / Carnaval!

We may be starting to see the hints of spring here in the north, but in Brazil it’s time for a full-on sweaty summer street party. Our Carnaval on the air features music from Brazil, Trinidad, New Orleans, and other corners of the earth where Carnival/Carnaval is celebrated. Plus some new releases and such in hour 2.

  1. Hi Scott,
    Your Mardi Gras show last Friday was so good. Can you tell me where I can download Saints by the Coolbone Brass Band? Neither cdbaby or cdroots had it. The whole show was excellent.

  2. Sue – I see there are some new and used copies on Amazon. Or perhaps your local record store could order it for you… you might ask those friendly folks. Glad you like the show…I do enjoy the music of Mardi Gras!
