Mardi Gras radio

The most famous Mardi Gras celebrations are, I think, in River of January, Brazil / Rio de Janeiro Brasil, and New Orleans, Louisiana in the US of A.


The current Rio celebrations and listings are at: http://www.rio-carnival.net/


Why not listen in via local radio - Try the Brazil and Louisiana USA sections via the clickable maps at the always excellent radio portal Live-Radio Net (which only features "real" radio stations, not internet-only): http://www.live-radio.net/  


From Rio stations include:


94FM


JB FM: http://www.jbfm.com.br/  Adult contemporary and quite nice in small doses and quite a mixture-e.g. Gilberto Gil, 1970's Al Stewart and the ubiquitous Mariah Carey.  A little more local fayre would improve this station IMHO.


From New Orleans stations include:


WEZB, covering Mardi Gras live: http://www.b97.com/  


WLNO


Bayou 95.7 http://www.bayou957.com/  is a classic rock station but still promoting Mardi Gras, seems all communities and genres get involved in the partying!
