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.
Walking into a bar in rural Mississippi can be an unnerving experience. But Jon Hatchett got a good song out of it.
Andrew Duhon's inspiration for a new song - written just minutes before he played it - was inspired a bucket. It's about a man who thinks he has it all, described in the chorus as a "5 Gallon Captaincy."
Jon Hatchett picks up the challenge and debuts a song he also wrote just today, about the upside of drinking heavily, which turns out to a potential country classic called You Can't Regret What You Can't Remember.
Joe Toman is two thirds through a 52 week challenge of trying to remember what happened in bar last night. The results of his weekly bar room adventures with local drinkers is enshrined in a weekly column and soon to be collected as a book.
Meghan Harwell met her husband in high school, not in rural Louisiana but in rural Louisiana. But they didn't start dating till they ran into each other on Canal Street in New Orleans 4 years ago. Back in high school he didn't but now he looks like Jeff Goldblum. And like Goldblum's characters in Jurassic Park and, apparently, Independence Day, Goldblum lookalike is saving the world from disease.
