Today is Mardi Gras a.k.a. Fat Tuesday. So, laissez les bon temps rouler. Celebrants are letting the good times roll from Rio to New Orleans to right here on the WFUV Question of the Day. Let us know what you'd like to hear and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Allen Toussaint "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky (From Now On)"

Lucinda Williams "Crescent City"

Mary Chapin Carpenter "Down at the Twist and Shout"

James "Sugar Boy" Crawford "Jock-A-Mo"

Kermit Ruffins with The Rebirth Brass Band "Mardi Gras Day"
