Happy Mardi Gras Day 2013, you all! Here’s a continuation of the great Mardi Gras party music that I started last year. You can listen to this playlist right here in the 8Tracks player below. I also had the pleasure of being the guest on the  Studio Tulsa radio show today, talking about the varied traditions of Mardi Gras music with host Rich Fisher. You can listen to the episode online and as a podcast once it is archived at the show’s page: Studio Tulsa on KWGS 89.5 FM – Public Radio Tulsa. Thanks to Rich Fisher, show producer Scott Gregory and Public Radio Tulsa for featuring this incredible musical heritage. I’m hoping to get a good bowl of gumbo sometime today and keep on snacking on the tasty King Cake you see in the photo here. Let the good times roll, friends!

From my one brief visit to New Orleans in 1998. We were there a couple of weeks before Mardi Gras Day and caught one of the early, small parades that was going by outside our hotel one night.
