Like This But With Pasta – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans

Geretta Geretta

Geretta Geretta spent years in Italy where she became the darling of Italian horror cinema. That was before she moved to Costa Rica and opened a chain of laundromats – Wash-a-Go Go – and way before she moved to New Orleans with nothing but a small dog and an expensive Louis Vuitton suitcase. She eventually had to sell the suitcase to make ends meet.

Bobble Head Geretta

Now a worlwide cult superstar of horror, Geretta has her own bobblehead doll, and a screenwriting scholarship called The Write Room. And as for her time in Italy, Happy Hour is reminiscent: “It’s like this but with pasta.”

The Cajun Ninja, Jason DeRouen

Jason DeRouen is better known, literally to millions, as The Cajun Ninja. What started out as a goof – making a pot of gumbo on Snapchat – has turned Jason into a legit internet sensation. He’s the Emeril of the internet generation. A genuine down home Cajun larger than life Louisiana boy who can cook. And make you laugh. After all, what else is there? Geretta suggests his good looks don’t hurt.

Michael Pagones, Dylan James from The Painted Hands

Michael Pagones and Dylan James are a couple of Slidell boys who have hung in with their buddies from Slidell High for 6 years as a band called The Painted Hands. If you’ve heard the band before, you’ll know how good their singular brand of danceable rock is. If you’ve haven’t heard them you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. Check out the new album, A BubbleGum Western, and get a free sample of it on this show.

Andrew Duhon

Andrew Duhon rounds out the hour with a tribute to the late great Fats Domino in the form of a song called “Waiting In The Wings.”
