Special: Mardi Gras 2019
KMUW Music's annual Mardi Gras special returns on Tuesday, March 5. Tune in to Global Village, Strange Currency and Night Train from 7:00 p.m. to midnight to celebrate Fat Tuesday.

Strange Currency joins the Mardis Gras celebration with music from The Meters, Michot’s Melody Makers, Robbie Robertson and more.
The Mardi Gras special feature wraps up on the Night Train, from 10 p.m. to midnight.
