WWOZ: "On the Road with the Wolfman"

On today’s program, we jump into a car with the one and only Walter Wolfman Washington for an hour of not just music but also a road trip to a local clothing store. Tune in as we drive and talk about music, shoes, and his music mentors.  I also stop by Willie Mae’s Scotch House for a taste of food worthy of a James Beard Award.
Wolfman and I cruised across town and over the Mississippi to Soul Train Fashions on the West Bank of New Orleans on our quest for the perfect shoes. The NOATWL web audience gets a glimpse of that store, as well as a venture into the Soul Train Suit Warehouse back on the east side of the river in Gentilly. We wanted to give you feel for the experience so we invited a few members of Sports & Leisure to come along to try out the suits that we see on dapper gentlemen across the city.
