Sex Religion – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Que Hefner, his trio NOLA Fam (Que, Mani, and J-Smoke) and their wider collective, NOLA Familia, are some of the freshest voices to come out of hip hop New Orleans since the heady days of Ca$h Money and Master P. From High Times – NOLA Fam’s infectious romp about smoking pot – to the moody, politically and musically subversive Sex Religion, these guys know how to have fun and how to get serious without having to go anywhere near jail for credibilty.
Que talks about women, weed, and gentrification, but, unlike a lot of rappers, not in that order.
Jose Calderon has made the list of New Orleans Magazine’s Top Doctors. And he’s also on our list of the best looking. Actually, he’s at the top of that list.
Jose is a noted psychiatrist in the field of Mind-Body medicine, which includes women and weed (but not gentrification). Jose works South of the border, dealing with the stress caused by living in the anarchic Mexican drug-ruled killing fields, to the comparatively calm streets of New Orleans and the hallowed halls of LSU medical school.
Talking of killing fields, we can thank international terrorism for having Cheryl DalPozzal on today’s show.
Cheryl was at the cutting edge of the telecom technological revolution when Al Qaeda destroyed the World Trade Center in New York and with it the company she was working for. So Cheryl headed South, back to New Orleans where she went to Tulane, and has jumped into NOLA life with both feet. Check out her whole new world as a photographer here.
