Original Air Date: 4/23/23 - Sam Erwin’s day job might be as public relations director for the American Sugar Cane League but in his off hours you can find him playing his trumpet as front man for the Florida Street Blowhards and penning books. His latest, Hidden History of Louisiana’s Jazz Age, has lots of the world-famous Louisiana city billed as the birthplace of jazz. He shares several of his findings with host Pam Bordelon on this edition of AC23.
