Keith Spera interview on The Paul Leslie Hour

Keith Spera joins The Paul Leslie Hour to reminisce Clarence “Frogman” Henry & Jimmy Buffett.

We’ve got something you’re going to want to listen to, and listen to again. Keith Spera is on the line with us. Keith writes about New Orleans music, culture and all that stuff for The Times Picayune. Although much to humble to admit it, he’s an authority on New Orleans music. You can read his writings on and watch the show he hosts, “Let’s Talk with Keith Spera” on WLAE-TV and on YouTube.

Keith was so kind to call in to talk about the 2024 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and two legendary musicians much associated with Jazz Fest: Jimmy Buffett who passed away September 1, 2023 and our friend Clarence “Frogman” Henry who passed away April 7, 2024.

Keith talks about the Coral Reefers performing with some special guests at this years New Orleans Jazz Festival on Sunday May 5th. There will also be a Jazz funeral precession in Jimmy Buffett’s honor on Saturday May 4th. Keith will lead a discussion on the music heritage stage (indoor grandstand area) on May 4th at 4:00 pm on the remembrance of Jimmy Buffett with his daughter Savannah along with a couple of members of the Coral Reefer Band.
