Classic Radio Theater features great radio programs that warmed the hearts of millions for the better part of the 20th century. Host Wyatt Cox brings the best of old radio classics back to life with the passion of a longtime -- as in more than half a century -- fan. We're talking about shows like Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Suspense, Gunsmoke, Fibber McGee and Molly, X Minus One, and many more that decades later still create great entertaining theater of the mind. Classic Radio Theater is keeping America's love affair with classic radio alive! But more than just "playing the hits", Wyatt supplements the first hour of each day's show with historical information on the day and date in history including audio that takes you back to World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Reagan, Carter, Nixon, LBJ. It's a true slice of life from not just radio's past, but America's past.

When we are young, the entertainment we experience becomes the background kaleidoscope of our lives and forms our ideas about the fun life can be. As we mature, so does our taste in what we watch and listen to. Even so, we are always building upon this foundation of our youth. ​ In many ways, this enjoyment gives way to the responsibility of marriage, family and careers. The memories of our formative years are boxed up and stored in the attic of our minds. We believe that it's time to climb that attic ladder, retrieve those dusty boxes and experience the laughter and joy of our past once again. ​ Everything Old is New Again is a unique radio show that revisits entertainment and pop culture of yesterday, juxtaposed to today.

Gumbo Hour

11:00amSaturday

11:00amSaturday

Terrence Jones –  Terrence “Ta-Ta” Jones was born in New Orleans, Louisiana but was reared in the small town of Lutcher, Louisiana in St. James Parish. Mr. Jones attended Elementary, Junior and Senior High School in Lutcher where he was a 1984 Parade Magazine High School All-American Quarterback and a member of the Louisiana Sports Writers Association High School All State Basketball team. Prior to graduating from Lutcher High in the summer of 1985, Mr. Jones accepted an athletic football scholarship from Tulane University during the 1985 Spring signing period.   Terrence concluded his student status at Tulane University in 1989 after being drafted in the 7th Round by the San Diego Chargers in the 1989 NFL Draft. Mr. Jones then opted for a 5-year career as a Quarterback in the Canadian Football League with stops at Calgary Stampeders, Ottawa Roughriders and the now defunct Shreveport Pirates team from Louisiana. Upon completion of his professional football career, Jones returned to Tulane and completed his undergraduate degree in 1995 with a BS in Sports Administration/Phys. Ed., in addition, he obtained his MA in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix’s Metairie Campus in 2004.   From 2016-2019, Terrence provided color analyst duties for Crescent City Sports high school football format, pre/post New Orleans Saints football game radio commentary on WGSO 990am, pre/post Tulane football commentary as well as targeted color analyst duties for Green Wave football on 1280am and garnered experience as a color analyst for high school football for VSN Louisiana. Also, during this time frame Terrence founded and hosted the Terrence “Louisiana” Jones Gumbo Hour at WGSO 99oam.   With professional employment roles previously from the Business, Government, Higher Learning and High School arenas, Terrence currently is a high school career coach for a collaborative between the National Jobs for America’s Graduate or JAG program and the Louisiana Workforce Commission.   The Show - Terrence “Louisiana” Jones Gumbo Hour As a former high school, college, and professional football player I accepted the obligation of responding to interview questions in real time both during and after games, won or lost.  Upon countless business, community and youth speaking engagements post professional football playing days, the experiences inspired and provided me the confidence to create and be on the other side of the lens, questions, and microphones. The show’s name was birthed from my collegiate football days at Tulane University during the summer of 1988. The Athletic Department decided I was worthy of a Heisman Trophy campaign. Thus, they came up with the name “Louisiana Jones”. It was a theme and play on words from the Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones movies. Huge billboards in and around the Superdome and the New Orleans area was erected leading up to the Fall of 1988. Unfortunately, it was short lived, but I had a lot of fun making the poster with my teammates. I added the “Gumbo” verbiage because it is synonymous with New Orleans and its culture, a little bit of everything. In that spirit, the TLJGH content will consist of topics or I like to say ingredientsfrom the Academic, Alumni, Business, Sports, Workforce and Youth arenas. One of the show’s purpose is to promote positive and thought-provoking dialogue between/with the host, sponsors, guests and listening audience. We will accomplish this with a P.U.S.H (#positiveunlimitedsuccincthabits) and the A.O.B.C (#athleticolivebranchcoalition).

Hosted by Louis R. Avallone and Stephen Parr, along with “mamas” Teri Netterville and Denise Arthur, American Ground Radio is for anyone who believes there is greatness within each of us – that we can do great things, and that this country can be great again – if we can only focus on what’s working, and how to do more of that, instead of just focusing on what’s broken, and how to fix it. If our country “feels” broken and you feel helpless to do anything about it, but you aren’t ready to become depressed, bitter, or angry, then this is your show.

The Food Show

2:00pmSaturday

2:00pmSaturday

Tom Fitzmorris has been covering the food scene in New Orleans for nearly 50 years. Starting out at the Driftwood newspaper at UNO, his first dining column ran in 1972, and it reviewed The Flambeau Room, operated by Peter Sclafani. A few years later he realized a dream of talking on the radio right here at WGSO. But in 1988 he got a call from Mary Ann Connell, wanting to talk to him about a radio food show. In July of that year The Food Show debuted on WSMB radio, and Mary Ann had a show right after that. Six months later these two married, had two kids, and moved to the country. Mary Ann retired from broadcasting and Tom did nearly 32 years of The Food Show on WSMB amid all the various changes of formats and call letters that followed. In April of 2019 another of Tom’s dreams was realized when Mary Ann joined the show as co-host. A year later the show moved back to AM radio right here on WGSO. Visit their website nomenu.com and Instagram page, @theneworleansmenu. Tom has written a number of books, most notably Tom Fitzmorris’s New Orleans Food, Hungry Town, and The Lost Restaurants of New Orleans, though The Eat Book, celebrating 30 years of publication, remains a personal favorite. Mary Ann has her own book, about her passion, family life. It’s called The Suzie Homemaker Chronicles, based on a newspaper column she wrote for eight years. She also has a separate podcast called Emmie The Story Lady, on Spotify and all other platforms.

Listeners from all walks of life tune in to hear Dr. Kaku discuss today's hottest and most relevant scientific/cultural topics covering everything from black holes and parallel universes to hip, provocative discussions on philosophy and the latest technology. At any given moment he will quote not only Einstein, but Woody Allen, proving that Science Fantastic is not just for the science junky, but for anyone who has ever pondered the cosmic question of existence, as well as those interested in the latest technological trends and techno-gadgets. "People are curious about science despite unhappy experiences in school," says Dr. Kaku. "We grind it out of them with dull rote-learning_ We're all born scientists until we hit junior high school." Dr. Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory, one of the main branches of string theory, the leading candidate for the unified field theory. Many in the scientific field call this "The new Copernican revolution." His goal is to complete Einstein's dream of a "Theory of Everything" to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe." Dr. Kaku explains, "The theory of everything is necessarily a theory of Creation, that is, it must explain everything from the origin of the big bang down to the lilies of the field."
