Angiogenesis – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Andrew Duhon returns to Happy Hour after recording his new album, titled (fill in the blank). If you have an idea for a title there’s a free record, T-shirt, and all kinds of other goodies waiting for you.

Andrew describes the process of looking for a title amongst his ruminations on the river of love, pain and sundry other emotions that courses through the human body. Any ideas striking you yet?

Listen to Andrew play a couple of songs off the new album and maybe something will hit you like it hit Dr. Kathy Jo Carstarphen, aka K.J.

K.J’s idea for a title to Andrew’s record is Angiogenesis. If you want to be 100% sure about the meaning of that you could Google it but K.J. is a doctor and describes it in a way that even a geriatric like Grant or her geriatric patients can understand, after a few drinks.

K.J. also describes how we in New Orleans have achieved one of the highest rankings in America for the transmission of HIV and Syphillis, which is good to know because you don’t get to read much in the news about Syphilis these days. You can, however, do something about the spread of these disaeses simply by having a few drinks and listening to music care of K.J.’s Krewe du Sante.

Ramon Antonio Vargas

Advocate reporter Ramon Antonio Vargas explains why even exceptional numbers of NOLA deaths from VD don’t make the news – unless the syphillis patient also gets run over his own driveway by his car. Ramon has his own medical adventure stories, including a rough night on the soccer field and a $1,400 ambulance ride.
