Blues-FM is celebrating the music and the birth of Marcia Ball born March 20, 1949, Orange, Texas raised in Vinton, Louisiana. She was described in USA Today as "a sensation, saucy singer and superb pianist... where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet." The Boston Globe described her music as "an irresistible celebratory blend of rollicking, two-fisted New Orleans piano, Louisiana swamp rock and smoldering Texas blues from a contemporary storyteller." Born into a musical family, Ball learned to play the piano at age 5, and showed an early interest in New Orleans style piano playing, as exemplified by Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, and James Booker. She has named Irma Thomas, the New Orleans vocalist, as her chief vocal inspiration. Ball studied English at Louisiana State University in the 1960s while playing in a band called Gum. In 1970, at age 21, she started a progressive country band called Freda and the Firedogs in Austin, Texas, and began her solo career in 1974. Ball's piano style inc ...

It's interesting to note that our Mardi Gras colors influenced the choice of school colors for archrivals Louisiana State University and Tulane University. When LSU was deciding on its colors, the shops in New Orleans had stocked up on purple, green, and gold material for the Mardi Gras season. LSU decided upon purple and gold, and bought much of it. Tulane bought much of the only remaining color--green! (Their colors are blue and green.) of the official Mardi Gras colors? Rex selected the official Mardi Gras colors in 1872, honoring the visiting Russian Grand Duke Alexis Alexis Alexandrovich Romanoff, who suggested the colors. The 1892 Rex Parade theme "Symbolism of Colors" affirmed the colors' meaning

Under the category of “It’s a small world,” last Sunday’s NY Times Sports section had a story about a 1972 Louisiana High School semifinal football game between Neville High School of Monroe and Brother Martin of New Orleans. The game ended in a 0 – 0 tie. The two team then played again and Neville won 8 – 0. The coach of the Neville Tigers was Charlie Brown and his son Tom Brown became a major league pitcher. I pitched against Tom in the Dixie Seniors World Series and then played with him on the Northeast Louisiana University team. He had the best curve I have ever seen. I lined out to left, grounded out to short, and was thrown out trying to get a bunt down and went 0 for 3 against him. The New York Times feature story brought back a lot of memories. And under the category that “some things never change,” Neville High School will be playing in the Louisiana A state semifinal game this Friday night against McDonogh of New Orleans. Tradition matters so much.
"Who Dat" became part of a chant for fans cheering on their favorite team. It has been debated exactly where it started, but some claim it began with Southern University Jaguars fans either in the late 1960s or early 1970s and went "Who dat talkin' 'bout beatin' dem Jags". Another claim is that it was connected with St. Augustine High School, a historically African-American all-boys Catholic high school in New Orleans, and yet another is that the cheer originated at Patterson High School in Patterson, Louisiana (home of Saints running back Dalton Hilliard). In the late 1970s fans at Alcorn State University and Louisiana State University picked up on the cheer. Fans of professional wrestler Junkyard Dog, a star on the Mid-South Wrestling circuit from 1979 to 1984 who frequently appeared in events at the Louisiana Superdome and Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans, had a similar chant: "Who dat think they gonna beat that Dog".
the Tomb Of The Unknown's brought up the memory of NOLA's Tomb Of The Unknown's.In 2008, the city of New Orleans contributed $1 million in federal funds to pay for a Katrina memorial where 31 unnamed dead and 54 other unclaimed bodies are interred in six granite-faced mausoleums. The city and private donors contributed to a nonprofit organization that New Orleans Coroner Frank Minyard set up for the project, said New Orleans lawyer Ted George, who volunteered to help. The Katrina monument sits atop the former Charity Hospital Cemetery, a 150-year-old potter’s field for the poor of New Orleans. Charity Hospital was destroyed by Katrina. None buried there are identified by name. Hundreds of other victims of the nation’s most deadly modern tragedy remain anonymous for unknown reasons. Many were elderly and poor. Around 64 percent of the storm victims were older than 65, based on a study by Louisiana State University pathologists who oversaw a massive temporary morgue in Baton Rouge that processed more th ...
