HAPPY HOUR is a cocktail-fueled 60 minutes of random conversation with folks who have nothing in common, other than being New Orleanians in a bar. Featuring extraordinary New Orleans musicians playing live, host Grant Morris and sidekick deluxe Andrew Duhon.

Drinking Gary Busey With The Italian Vanna White – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Urinating into a video camera at age 3 led film maker Paul Dale to track down the Vanna White of Italy, Ylenia Carrrisi, who went missing in New Orleans in 1994.

Paul Dale’s unique path from toilet training to film making, involving dressing as “Fat Mama,” is just one of the unexpected tales that unfold over this first Happy Hour from Wayfare on Freret Street in Uptown New Orleans.

To kick off the Wayfare shows with a musical punch we enlisted Phil deGruy. Guitar Player magazine has described Phil as “One of the finest players ever.”

Not content with mastering 6 strings, Phil designed his own instrument, The Guitarp, which has 17 strings. You have literally never hear anything like Phil’s guitar playing.


Andrew Duhon also has a story about a mysterious woman, probably not Italian but certainly enigmatic. She’s the subject of his song on today’s show.
