Here's a couple that will get you set for Fat Tuesday, if you're one of those amateurs that only drinks and listens to New Orleans R & B one day a year (the rest of you know where to find me). The first one is a mix, from Funky 16 Corners, with a really good selection of a few you would might expect and some you probably don't know. Then, there's Ernie "Mother In Law" K Doe's radio show, from the 1980s. Some really good music and an awful lot of his signature rambling. As with most things in New Orleans, it's got a very cool vibe.
