It’s New Orleans: Happy Hour

Hosted ByGrant Morris & Andrew Duhon

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.

Second Hand Strep Dick – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Getting strep throat when someone you know gives a third person oral sex sounds like a magic trick. Unfortunately, for Eric Hollerbach, it wasn’t.

Part of Eric’s stand-up comedy livelihood is his popular and revealing podcast Highway Diary. You can check out episode 160 where he and his ex-ex girlfriend reminisce over the many issues that drove them apart. Until you have a moment to do that, you can catch up on the decidedly non magic pathology of passing diseases around the world of New Orleans entertainment.

Rev Goat Carson is a whole other kind of entertainer. Claiming to have Alzheimer’s, he manages to pull off a dazzling rap that he performed with Dr. John when he was writing songs with him – which earned him a Grammy. Goat also recounts his adventures with a panoply of luminaries from Bob Dylan to Kinky Friedman, and recounts his run for President with Joe Walsh from The Eagles as his running mate. 

In a range of amazing tales, nothing is quite as stupendous as the movie Goat wrote and directed in the 80’s starring the great-grandfather of rap, Melle Mel, Step Off. The sci-fi thriller foretells the destruction of the Twin Towers in Manhattan, and is only now seeing the light of day with performances in New Orleans

Sharks Teeth is a band that you might not immediately peg as New Orleanian. Their many recordings are electronic and synth-laden but as their performance on Happy Hour proves they are equally at home with acoustic guitars and a snare drum with a rag over it. Tyler Scurlock, Zach Meredith and Spencer Darr turn in an impressive two-song set before making a case for dropping out of school and bringing back the audio cassette.
