Winning the LAB 2023 Prestige Award for our Hot Sauce Saturday Radio Show was truly an honor, and we are committed to bringing our listeners the best in Louisiana music, food, and culture. As a native of Carencro, Louisiana, I am passionate about the unique culture and music of the region. As a zydeco musician, disc jockey, and radio host, I have had the honor of sharing my love of Louisiana with listeners worldwide.  Hot Sauce Saturday airs every Saturday simulcasting from 9am-2pm central on KFXZ-FM Z105.9 serving Southwest Louisiana, KSLO FM 105.3 (Home of Zydeco) serving Northern Louisiana, and online worldwide. 

Corey's interest in radio started around April 1982, when his great-uncle, Russell Chaisson, and Joshua Jackson opened KJCB, Lafayette’s first Black-owned radio station. As a youngster, Corey sat in the studio with JJ Callier, Sr. for his Zydeco Gumbo Show. Later, Corey’s DJ career started as a substitute for Lester Thibeaux at KVOL 1330 AM. John Broussard and program director Marcus “Dr. Boogie” Dauterive also brought Corey in as an apprentice on the KJCB zydeco show and handed him the torch in 1991 with the “The Hot Zydeco Show.” While studying Mass Communication at USL, he also filled in at the university’s radio station, KRVS FM 88.7. He later joined KFXZ Z105.9 FM in 2011.

Every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Z in Z105.9 is for zydeco! Catch five hours of zydeco with a splash of swingout , oldies and southern soul. Think of Hot Sauce Saturday as a hot and spicy mixture of all your Louisiana favorites! Send new music and other requests to hotzydeco@gmail.com.
