Off By Nine – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

If you’re a girl and you tell a guy you’re 26, what does it matter that you’re really only 17?

In Jak Locke’s telling of the story, being off by 9 matters, if you’re a hooker.

While we’re on the subject of keeping numbers straight, this is Jak’s 6th appearance on Happy Hour.

It’s not like he doesn’t have anything else to do. Jak is frontman for the high-octane The Jak Locke Rock Show, and the experimental Jak Is A Four Letter Word. He co-fronts the 1950’s rock’n’roll trio The NOLA Treblemakers, the vaudevillian folk trio The Speakeasy Serenaders, and ringleads the band for the Freaksheaux To Geaux circus sideshow burlesque troupe.

If anyone’s rocking New Orleans more than Jak Locke, it’s Lena Sendik.

Lena is fronting a much-needed revolution in healthcare with her recently opened Balance Integrative Health center. Lena’s clinic combines traditional and alternative medicines, and get this: your doctor’s appointment is 60 minutes! And you don’t pay any more than you do for your 5 minute prescription encounter with your current doctor.

Lena’s personal story is equally as impressive as her professional accomplishments. She comes from a legit, real-deal, Mafia family. Complete with hit-men, federal jail time for Uncle Frank, and every juicy detail from red sauce to wire-taps.

Film maker David DuBos could turn Lena’s mob story into a movie, after he finishes work on his current project Bayou Tales, which is almost ready for release.

 David’s next project is a biopic about John Kennedy Toole, New Orleans’ favorite literary son, author of Confederacy of Dunces, based on a biography, Butterfly In The Typewriter.

On this show Sarah Reagor decides she loves podcasting so much she’s going to throw it all away, give up everything else and become a full-time reporter for Happy Hour.

After the cucumber cocktail wears off she may reach a different decision. Or not.
