This morning, this Mardi Gras morning, Antoinette K-doe, of the Mother-in-Law Lounge, the Mother of the Baby Dolls, the heart and soul of WWOZ, died of a massive heart attack.
There is going to be a massive jazz funeral, you bet.
But I just can't believe it. And I just hate that this is true. Like so many, I loved her.
