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.
The first thing you notice about A F The Naysayer is that he is totally mucus free.
Okay, you might notice that he's tall and striking, with a head of dreadlocks but you'll find out in this conversation why he looks so healthy and how he lost somewhere between 8 and 80 pounds. Closer to 80. It all goes back to 1912 and a mucus free diet.
Keith Spera is the music writer for The Advocate. As you might imagine, it's a gig that gives you a lot of nights out. Of all the memories Keith could have dredged up over cocktails, how about the night he spent with Master P in P's Beverly Hills hacienda? And then there's the menories of Mo B. Dick. (Though after P moved to Baton Rouge with his entire crew that may have become Meaux B Dick.)
The sure way to be the most popular person in just about any room is to give away free booze. Stacy Johnson is the tasting room manager at Celebration Distillation, where they make Old New Orleans Rum. Stacy spends all day giving away free drinks and concocting new cocktails, and on this show she plies everybody with extraordinary high octane and delicious rum as well as a bottle of jet fuel known as Gingeroo.
This rum-infused conversation darts around all over the map, from the perils of dating drummers to the lure of Missoula Montana, and a hundred stops in between.
