Original rock and roll lives on KRVS. While searching for records to play on "Big Band Swings", I've also picked up some interesting 1950s tunes---and just as BBS has become BBS and other things, Old Gold starts out as a big mix of musical genres, with an emphasis on rock, roll, rhythm, and my favorite, novelty!

9 hours ago

With a passion for combining new beats, sounds and auditory movements with timeless ambient and electronic classics dating back from the 1920s-30s to today, I take a loose theme (normally inspired by new experiences or topical events every week) and run with it when creating a new episode of Beat Current.

Louisiana Eats: July 19, 2017

Jul 19, 2017

Each episode takes listeners to the fields and farms, restaurant and home kitchens where the food action is really happening meeting the people who perpetuate the renowned food culture of this delicious place. During the hour long program Poppy also travels outside of her home turf to hear what’s new in the national and international food world. 

The topic is speech on campus. Is it free? Is it threatening? Is it hateful? What are the issues roiling campuses across the United States today. This conversation with the Dean of Students (Perez) and the Director of Diversity (Mallory) explores these issues in depth. We discuss the (fine) line between free speech and hate speech and talk about the resolution recently vetoed by John Bel Edwards that would have required college boards in Louisiana to report on speech on the campuses. Tune in Wednesday to hear this informative program, on KRVS 88.7 at 12:30

Out to Lunch: July 19, 2017 - Salt Peter

Jul 19, 2017

Jeremy lives in Lafayette but he grew up in Pensacola Florida. Jeremy still goes back to Pensacola regularly. When he does, he fills up a specialized container with 275 gallons of sea water. Jeremy trucks that water back to Lafayette. Through a process of evaporation and dehydration, he turns Pensacola sea water into salt. He packages it and sells it under the name Cellar Salt. Phil Gremilion is a Lafayette native with an equally fascinating food product. Phil’s company, Papa Jaebert’s, is a spice company unlike any other in the world.

FLOOD RECOVERY

Checking In On Flood Recovery Efforts With Pat Forbes

86 thousand homes in Louisiana had damage from flooding last year, and state recovery officials are working to distribute federal recovery dollars to flood victims. In order to find out who flooded and how badly, the state set up a survey; only 31 thousand households have filled it out. The Restore Louisiana Homeowner Assistance Program helped the neediest people first - like the low income, elderly and disabled. Construction is already underway for many of those properties. Now it’s...
