This week’s news quiz was a honkin’ good time!

Joining hosts Jim Braude and Margery Eagan were the Red Flame Hunters, a youth oriented Mardi Gras Indian tribe in New Orleans, who are in town to participate in this weekend’s HONK! Festival.

After treating our listeners to a sneak preview of some of the songs they’ll be playing this weekend, Ed Buckner president and founder of the Original Big 7 Social Aid & Pleasure Club and New Orleans based artist Justin Cloud competed to see who was paying closer attention to the news this week.

The HONK! Festival will be taking place throughout Somerville and Cambridge Friday and through Sunday. For more information visit their website.
