La Vellonera: October 19, 2017

Oct 20, 2017

La Vellonera, a translation for "The Jukebox" used in many Latin-American countries, brings listeners a diverse selection from varied Latin genres, countries, and artists. The program has one sole purpose, to bridge the gap between the Latino and local communities. We have so much in common, and our music is hard evidence!

 

Interview with Alexi Longlois and Trevor Chapman about the LRE production "A Streetcar Named Desire." 

Also in the studio are Sasha Massey and Joan Wingate discussing L'Opera de Lafayette et Lagniappe.

Old Gold: October 19, 2017

Oct 19, 2017

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!

Like morning coffee, "Bonjour Louisiane" gets you up and going with traditional Cajun French favorites and the latest releases from talented newcomers. Brush up on your French, find out about the fairs and festivals, and share the "joie de vivre" of French Louisiana.

Beat Current: October 19, 2017

Oct 19, 2017

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.

 

 

A sampling of modern and traditional Classical Music.

Louisiana Eats: October 18, 2017

Oct 18, 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. 

This week's show focuses on President Trump's tax proposal. We look at the costs, the benefits, the consequences and the politics of passage in Congress. We ask the question, who does tax reform benefit and will this proposal spur explosive economic growth or just add to the deficit and exacerbate the inequality already plaguing American society?

In Pointe Coupee and Ascension Parishes, a buyout program first used in neighborhoods after Superstorm Sandy may offer a new option to homeowners who have lived with escalating risk for decades.
