In recognition of Bastille Day, Matthew, in this special Monday episode, discusses the book that caused the French Revolution: "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" (The Dangerous Liaisons), written by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. The book -- perhaps unintentionally -- set off pious sentiment against the Ancien Regime, and its influence carries on today.

The Event Jeannie’s summer “Wet Your Whistle” Series continues with French Reds
French wine production dates back to the 6th century BC and on the assumption that most of us don’t have time to figure out what’s been happening over the past 1500 years, we invited Charles Curtis to sum up the most salient points about French Red Wine. And since Charles just finished a book entitled the “Original Grands Crus of Burgundy” – it’s hard to imagine that even the most experienced wine connoisseur won’t learn something too!
Jeannie will be live at noon on August 13th, with Charles as we examine Red wines and grapes comprehensively from Cabernet Franc to Syrah!
World Footprints returned to New Orleans for our 7th annual French Quarter Festival 2-hour broadcast. This year we set up at Tableau Restaurant, Dickie Brennan's newest culinary gem in Jackson Square.
The first hour of World Footprints showcase New Orleans international outreach, the arts and history. We introduce a hidden gem, The New Orleans Historic Collection. The Historic Collection is a museum, research center, and publisher dedicated to the study and preservation of the history and culture of New Orleans and the Gulf South region. New Orleans' homegrown stars, The Boswell Sisters, are featured and the exhibit's curator Mark Cave and the granddaughter of Vet Boswell, Kyla Titus, joins us for a lively discussion.
We also talk about a special event that the world is sharing this year--the 70th anniversary of the landing at Normandy. The National World War II Museum's Alan Raphael joins us to talk about how the museum is commemorating this anniversary and the special role that New Orleans played in WWII.
We promise you'll enjoy this first hour and we invite you back to listen to the 2nd hour broadcast where we talk about the history of Voodoo and spotlight the contributions of Africans in New Orleans.
