About This Episode

Hey y’all. This is Mark. Welcome to episode #134

Today’s episode is all about Diamond Jim Moran, one of the most colorful New Orleans characters in the early to mid 20th century

The last show was an interview of me by Mr. James Cullen. I’d resisted doing that for a long time, but I finally gave in. It was fun for me and I think it turned out pretty well. If you missed it go back and give it a listen. I think you’ll enjoy it. Episode #133 – An Interview With Me

New Orleans is so much more than the Bourbon Street scenes you may have seen–– it’s a 300-year-old city made up of vibrant neighborhoods, diverse populations, and traditions layered upon each other.
