Dr. John: 'We're Gonna Be Back' in New Orleans

Hi everyone! Today's selection is a podcast from the NPR "Story of the Day". In this podcast, Mac Rebennack reflects on the cultural changes in post-Katrina New Orleans. I'm posting this to my "Burks' Selections" series because of my interest in the future of New Orleans - given what we did last fall with the project. This podcast was posted to the web on 3 March 2006 at:

The show notes included:

"One of New Orleans' best-known native sons, the piano professor Mac Rebennack, a.k.a. Dr. John, was back in town for Mardi Gras this week. In a tour of devastated neighborhoods, he expresses fear that the city's unique grassroots culture has been uprooted."

I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Best regards,
