WWOZ 90.7 FM CELEBRATES 31 YEARS OF BROADCASTING
Join WWOZ for a Second Line and Birthday Bash featuring Live Local Music!

New Orleans, LA, November 28, 2011 - WWOZ 90.7 FM wwoz.org, New Orleans' own listener supported Jazz & Heritage radio station celebrates 31 years of bringing New Orleans music to the universe on December 3, 2011. WWOZ (‘OZ) invites you to join in a Second Line and Birthday Bash.

On Saturday, December 3, come parade with the ‘OZ family. We'll gather at 11:30am in the neutral ground at Elysian Fields and Decatur in the Faubourg Marigny, kicking off at noon. The procession will be led by the Treme Brass Band, and will also include the Free Agents Brass Band. Grand Marshall is Dancing Man 504.

On the evening of December 3, ‘OZ will throw a Birthday Bash concert at Tipitina's Uptown, where the station got its start in 1980. This year we're throwing down with longtime friend and supporter of 'OZ - Big Sam's Funky Nation. The Stooges Brass Band will kick things off at 10PM. Big Sam hits the stage at 11pm. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 at the door and are on sale now at Tipitinas.com.

WWOZ's mission is to be the worldwide voice, archive and flag-bearer of New Orleans culture. With nearly 50% of OZ's members residing outside of Louisiana, this little miracle of a radio station is spreading around the globe like wildfire. Whether you listen to 'OZ on air, on our Facebook app, on wwoz.org, on your smartphone, or on your Internet radio device, you know you'll hear the essence of New Orleans.

As much as ‘OZ has grown, the heart and soul of the station remains the same. Volunteer show hosts bring their passion and knowledge of music to the airwaves without commercial interests, allowing for the ultimate New Orleans music experience. WWOZ thanks its volunteers, DJs, members, staff, Board of Directors and all other Guardians of the Groove for another great year of live, local music!
