Mardi Gras starter kit

This week's show is something of a Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras / Carnival starter kit -- particularly useful if you happen to live far away from Rio or New Orleans or other places where the holiday is celebrated with great gusto. Many USA residents will be more focused on the odd cultural phenomenon of the Super Bowl this weekend; if your family insists on that, just turn the TV sound down, and crank up these tunes. Guaranteed more interesting than the discussion of instant replays and quarterback rating statistics.
