Ontological Girls In Action – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
It was a day just like any other.
Rev Dr Ray Cannata was walking down Freret Street in Uptown New Orleans, on his way home from his favorite new lunch spot (4 hours later) when he happened to glance into Wayfare at the very moment Happy Hour host Grant Morris was glancing out from behind his mic, about to begin the show. Next thing you know, Ray has a martini and he’s explaining why we’re all going to Heaven even if we don’t do any good deeds. If you’ve ever thought about converting to Christianity or reaffirming your faith, look no further, Ray is the guy to talk to.
Kay Morrrison, perhaps better known to New Orleanians as The Occasional Wife, started out as a good little Southern Baptist girl in Algiers. Kay was a member of a gang of like-minded Southern Baptists known as Girls In Action. Today Kay is avowedly one of the happiest people you’ll ever meet. Her joie de vivre is contagious. Even Andrew Duhon feels upbeat and gung ho about life by the end of this conversation.
Andrew has finished his new album, which looks like it’s going to called False River, and is considering taking some business advice, branching out and writing songs for other artists. Andrew tries out one of his new songs today, and plays one off of False River.
The Kay and Ray show, one of the happiest Happy Hours in our 7 year history, is brought to you by dirty martinis at Wayfare.
