Induced to Judder [Playlist – 08/25/11]

The Songs & The Stories – My name is Michael Gourrier. I am currently in my thirty-fifth year of Jazz Broadcasting. A bulk of that (twenty-four years to be exact) was spent at WWOZ-FM in New Orleans. I was displaced by Hurricane Katrina and lost my home and all my earthly possessions, including a massive music collection, in the calamity. I am currently the Jazz Director at WRIR-FM in Richmond where I have been broadcasting since March of 2006. I am pleased to accept the invitation to travel to Charlottesville to participate in WTJU’s New Orleans Week. I have compiled a nice selection of material that I will share with the listening audience and add personal comments and anecdotes pertinent to the selections.

Soul of New Orleans Celebration

From Emmett Street to Frenchmen Street
WTJU’s 6th Annual Soul of New Orleans Celebration
August 22-28, 2011

Join us, Monday August 22 through Sunday August 28, as we take a musical tour of the Crescent City showcasing its vibrant musical landscape, which continues to thrive despite all the adversities and challenges of the region in recent times. Long before Hurricane Katrina and HBO’s “Treme” made more people aware of its unique cultural heritage, New Orleans has always been in our musical hearts at WTJU. Our connection to the Big Easy is both personal and spiritual, and we’ve made it a practice to devote a special week of programming dedicated to the Crescent City every year since the hurricane struck in 2005.

For this year’s commemoration, we’ve asked our announcers to select their New Orleans musical faves and recommendations for your listening pleasure and edification. We’ve got a gumbo of styles and performers—Dixieland and Satchmo, Zydeco and Cajun, brass bands, clarinet and piano players, Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras, gospel and soul and the big beat and the Caribbean roots of the New Orleans Style. It’s quite an intoxicating brew!

Also look for special guests, including:

  • Jon Lohman, Program Director of the Virginia Folklife Program and the Folklife Festival, on “Left of Cool”
  • Michael Gourrier, Jazz Director of Richmond’s WRIR who lost his home in the wake of Katrina, on “Induced to Judder”
  • Charles King Arthur, who’ll discuss and demonstrate boogie woogie piano on “The Bump”
  • LSU historian and chef David Shreve who’ll take you on a tour of Crescent City heritage on “Leftover Biscuits”

Remember, you don’t have to be tuned in at exactly the same time as a particular show you want to listen to, because you have up to two weeks to stream the show at your convenience. Just go to our website at wtju.net and click on the “Streaming” button, and then the “Tape Vault” button to select what you want to hear (and we know you’ll want to hear them all!).

By the way, although this isn’t a fundraising effort, if the music moves you, our guitar case is always open. You can always pledge your support to this great cultural resource of central Virginia by going to wtju.net and clicking on the “DONATE NOW” button.

So y’all come on down to the French Quarter and we’ll transport you from Emmet Street to Frenchmen Street as only WTJU can.

Red beans & ricely yours,
David Eisenman – Jazz & Blues Director
