Featured Albums of the Week

Featured Album of the Week (8:20am) on Your Morning Brew: Via Audio, Animalore "Like a pop-up book for adults, bursting with vivid colors and secret corridors at the turn of every page." review Local Pick of the Week (3:30pm) on The Home Stretch Ozomatli, Fire Away (Dig) Not technically a local band but they play here a lot - and they're great, so we're adopting Ozomatli's wonderful new album as a local pick this week. National Pick of the Week (5pm) on The Home Stretch Mary Gauthier, The Foundling We'll let Mary tell the story: "I was born to an unwed mother in 1962 and subsequently surrendered to St. Vincent's Women and Infants Asylum on Magazine Street in New Orleans, where I spent my first year. I was adopted shortly thereafter but left my adopted family at fifteen. I wandered for years looking for, but never quite finding a place that felt like home. I searched for, found, and was denied a meeting with my birth mother when I was 45 years old. She couldn't afford to re-open the wound she'd carried her whole life, the wound of surrendering a baby. The Foundling is my story."
