I looks like The Jay Thomas show will be getting some press, becuase they are doing their show from New Orleans next week for Mardi Gras. The LA Daily News reports, "We don't know who'll show up, how many people will be there, what's going to happen - but we'll be there," reports New Orleans native son Jay Thomas, who's heading home next week for Mardi Gras with his Sirius Satellite radio show. The actor/broadcast personality expects to ride Krewe in the Orpheus Parade instituted by fellow Jesuit High School alumnus Harry Connick Jr. on Monday night - with Steven Seagal as the king. He'll interview celebs and local luminaries and continue participating in the festivities through the next night's Mardi Gras parade and on. "My motto is, I want to rebuild New Orleans one beer at a time," he jokes. But seriously, "I'm dedicated to the idea that the United States needs New Orleans - beyond the debauchery that we always talk about, there's a spirit to it, and the culture and history. It's going to take a lot longer to rebuild than anyone thought. It will be smaller. It may be a different city, maybe more like Charleston, S.C.," guesses Jay, whose radio audience began at 1.3 million last year. "Now we're knocking on the door to 4 million."
