The feeling of excitement is starting to build on the streets of New Orleans 9th Ward as Carnival starts in earnest this weekend with the Krewe of Chewbacchus parade.

The 25 day orgy of fun is fixing to commence.

We’re blasting “Let’s Have Some Fun” by Slim Saunders this morning to get in the Carnival mood. Eagle-eared listeners may take note that both Sugar Boy Crawford and Snooks Eaglin are in Saunders’ backing band.

George Sanders Le Blanc was born in New Orleans December 24, 1929 and died on September 14, 1998. He’s buried in St Roch cemetery. You know that was one hell of a second line.
