97.1 New Orleans WEZB B-97 Nick Bazoo Alan Beebe

Back in happier times in the Big Easy… Nick Bazoo. The name may not be familiar to those of us outside this market but the voice sure sounds familiar. This is short but a very high-intensity presentation in a tightly scoped aircheck. Talk about hot CHR! This will take you way back to the days when Pat Benatar was on Top 40 radio!

And… it’s Mardi Gras time – so party on with Nick Bazoo on B-97!

  1. This is definitely a fun aircheck. What does crack me up a little bit is how he says that they will play some Mardi Gras music next. so I’m waiting to hear some traditional cajun or zydeco music, but he cranks up that New Orleans party classic “Age of seventeen” by Stevie Nicks. So, whatever happened to be in their rotation at the time suddenly was Mardi Gras party music. NO, I didn’t really expect them to break format, it just struck me a little funny.

  2. I was at B-97 from 1984-1985 and we really did play Mardi Gras music each year. I don’t know why it’s not on the aircheck but I remember playing the stuff. Talk about local!! Only in New Orleans… like no other city on earth!
