This new music-intensive one-hour special features the Dirty Dozen Brass
Band’s unique tribute to their New Orleans home on the one-year
anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (Aug 29) - an uplifting,
emotionally-charged reinterpretation of Marvin Gaye's classic protest
album, "What's Going On." 

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band performs these songs and other New Orleans
classics live.  Band members discuss both the enduring resonance of
Gaye's message, and the significance of music for New Orleans and its
residents today in Katrina’s wake.

Please consider airing this program on August 29th or over Labor Day
