    this is not just “A” Tastee Donut Shop. This is where the late great Earl King used to hang in the early hours and where he wrote some of his most memorable tunes….I can’t pass there without thinking about him. This is a New Orleans musical Landmark!

  • The photograph & comment will be used on the homepage of this week’s edition of the “Carnival of Hurricane Relief,” posted later today.


    dt: print out this picture, cut it out carefully and tape it to the inside of the passenger side window. then every time you are riverbound at this corner you can look out and see the donut shop and remember all the good tunes written here.
