Hard to pick just one. I love music and New Orleans has plenty places with great music. Frenchmen (street) is definitely one of them!

I do a variety of things that go from programming the music line-up for the radio stations to coordinating the creation of commercial spots. I also generate promotional ideas for our clients and listeners. In general, I deal with entertainment!

Why did you get into this field?

Since I was a child, I knew I wanted to work in the music industry. I couldn't make it as a musician, so I stayed in radio.

New Orleans has a unique culture that is hard for many to understand. You must live here to decipher the pleasure we get from such a diverse, vibrant and fun city like NOLA.

Publisher's Note

Ready for the outdoors!

Although we do not have very well defined seasons, the weather changes enough to create different vibes in and around the city.

The moderate Spring weather accompanied with sunny clear skies is inviting to get back to the outdoors and be more active. The backyard also gets more use in the form of the very Louisiana tradition of the crawfish boil, which we learn more about in our food section.

Short day-trips are perfect during Spring and the Northshore offers some amazing destinations for nature and food lovers. Just sitting down on the bank of the Tchefuncte River, looking at the boats pass by can be a relaxing change of pace and scenery.

In this edition, we visit the Northshore to explore some of the Latin restaurants in the area. We will be coming back to enjoy the different places and activities that the Northshore has to offer. St. Tammany hosts a vineyard, a safari, strawberry and blueberry patches, breweries, swamp tours, museums, kayaking, and tubing, among so many other interesting things. The Northshore is the perfect destination when you need a little getaway.

But for now, we prepare to get outdoors in New Orleans to enjoy the great music during French Quarter Fest and to see the national and international superstars coming to Jazzfest. See you out there!
