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.
Arthur Meek is a New Zealander who sounds like he stepped out of Flight of the Conchords but actually he stepped out of his car mere minutes after driving into New Orleans from visiting Graceland and blowing the head off of a guy at point-blank range in Mississippi and joined us on Happy Hour.
Arthur has been in the United States trying to drum up support for his campaign to have sex with Hillary Clinton. He makes a pretty convincing argument on this show. If Hillary is the Democratic candidate for President in 2016, screwing Arthur could conceivably make more sense than screwing over whomever else she's up against.
Alex Beard has a whole other way of figuring out what the hell's going on in the universe. It's called the Divine Proportion. If you're thinking that's maybe the name of the pie at Camellia Grill,it's actually 1.618. Entirely without the aid of pot, Alex is able to explain the relationship between the world's only known unicellular organism and your eye looking at a Jackson Pollack painting.
This whole consideration of the unifying elements of the universe starts when Lucy Cordts is badgered into admitting she could read music and play Bach by the age of 8 years old in Peoria, Illinois.
Today Lucy plays banjo, mandolin, and sings in the Kelcy Mae band. If you're a fan of this show you may also remember Lucy as "Puddin'." In her waking hours when she's not playing music Lucy is the Social Services Supervisor at the NO/AIDS Task Force. Lucy's take on what's going in the local health scene in general and the HIV world in particular might surprise you. Actually, that's a guarantee.
Andrew Duhon tries out a new song, The Spirit Lives On. And, yes, it sure does.
