Going To New Orleans


Friday, December 19 and Sunday, December 19

Crossroads celebrates several Crescent City birthdays – with music from pianist James Booker, Art Neville of The Neville Brothers and The Meters, trumpeter Kermit Ruffins, and singer and pianist Professor Longhair (featured also in a special in hour two). Plus, new music, classic recordings and some blues holiday releases that just came out this season.

Chicago native Chris Heim produces and hosts Global Village, a nationally and internationally distributed world music show heard in more than 40 states and nearly 40 countries; the nightly jazz show Night Train, and Crossroads, KMUW’s twice-weekly blues and R&B show. In 2020, Chris received first place in Special Program from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters for Global Village at the Savannah Music Festival, as well as first place in DJ Personality Air Check for Night Train.
