Dirty Rice: February 18, 2017

Feb 20, 2017

Dirty Rice is the longest running Louisiana Music show going today. Started by Todd Mouton back in 1991 or so it's now hosted on an alternating week basis by Lee Kleinpeter me. We're trying to bring you the best Louisiana music on your Saturday nights. The way i see it is that it's time to roll up the rug, sweep up the floor, turn up the radio loud and wear out the linoleum if you're housebound, drive a little faster if you're out on the streets or just plain have fun out there cooking in the kitchen.......
