This week's show, originally broadcast May 27, 2007, fulfills some requests, celebrates the birthdays of Fats Waller and Al Jolson, and presents some "nola" songs. What in the world are "nola" songs? Well, after playing the Revelers version of Felix Arndt's composition "Nola" on the previous week's show, I came across a number of songs whose titles ended in "nola", presented here in not one, but two segments. Can you come up with any other "nola" songs?
