Join me Sunday, Febuary 18 on Jazz Tones on WCLK  3:00pm until 7:00pm as I interview members of The Rebirth Brass Band. It's a Mardi Gras celebration with the Rebirth Jazz Band, formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers. The Grammy- winning band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. Rebirth is noted for their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf in New Orleans.

Atlanta is a hub for child sex traffickers and for those who use children. This is a sad fact. Many of us come into contact with exploited kids in our neighborhoods, our schools and our community each day. How can you tell if a child being trafficked?
