WWOZ 90.7 FM in New Orleans is planning to stream Jazz Festing In Place: An On-Air Festival, running 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on April 23–26 and April 30–May 3.

The dates coincide with the postponed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. And while the archival streaming music includes a few acts that were slated to appear this year in NOLA, the program will comprise performances by Fats Domino, The Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas, Allen Toussaint, Marcia Ball, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Ellis Marsalis, as well as the 1974 “Fire Benefit” that featured Professor Longhair, The Wild Magnolias and Dr. John. A number of interviews that reach beyond music are set to be aired as well.
