I’ve been so caught up in the holidays that I forgot to mark Gumbo Radio’s birthday!
Five years ago, I kicked off this little dog-and-pony show, and the obsession remains. Since last year, I’ve added another couple of weeks of music for a playlist that’s 35-days long. Every time I update the list with new music, I think Yeah, that’s good. That ought to be enough for a while. But then I run across something I just have to add. Or even better, my kids hear something and say, “We need to add that to Gumbo Radio.” The apples have definitely fallen very closely to the tree.
And just as a heads up, on Christmas Eve, I’m switching the whole format to Christmas tunes for that day and Christmas day. But on Dec. 26, we’re back to the live mix of music from Louisiana.
Here’s wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season.
