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.
If you listen to public radio in New Orleans you already know Eve Troeh.
Eve is the News Director for the local NPR affiliate; public radio station WWNO 89.9FM. But other than she's smart, quick, and one of the refreshingly talented new on-air voices at WWNO, what do you really know about Eve? Start with this: is she single? Depends who you ask.
How about we ask Eve if she's single? You'd think that would clear it up, right?
What we do learn about Eve is that she is an amazing improv actress and singer.
You're going to have to hold on till the end of the show (or just skip to it) to get the full effect.
Eve Troeh and Gregory Alexander have a lot in common. Well, maybe "a lot " is over stating it. They both went to Catholic school. That's kind of where the similarity ends.
Greg went on to teach at Catholic school before guaranteeing his passage to Hell. He became a novelist. Although not a sin in itself, Greg's debut novel, The Holy Mark, rips the lid off sexual perversion in the Catholic church, with insider intelligence.
Greg's only possible shot at salvation is the penance he does in his den in his River Ridge house: he drinks whisky and spins vinyl oldies on twin turntables from his 3,000-record collection, and announces the songs to nobody but his tape recorder. If things work out right and Greg isn't just humoring Grant and Andrew we're going to be publishing one of Greg's home-radio retrospectives of the hits of the 70's. Pray for that to happen (don't mention Greg's name to God, though, why risk getting excommunicated from eternity?).
Andrew Duhon is hitting the road, heading to the UK, Spain and points beyond for a Summer tour.
As a parting gift Andrew leaves us with 2 songs - a brand new one about breaking hearts for a noble cause - love - and an ode to small town Britain.
