Each presidential and vice presidential debate lasts 90 minutes. If you watch political ads, though, they may seem to go on much longer.
In the hours and days after the first presidential debate and this year's sole vice presidential version, both campaigns used debate footage in their ads — attempting to amplify messages, make counterarguments and drive the focus of the election.
Tuesday's edition of THE MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN (11am-noon Central Standard on 88.7FM locally or www.krvs.org) features new and recent releases by AirTrafficController, John Cale, Faded Paper Figures, Wanderlust, The Burning of Rome and David Byrne & St. Vincent. Also: some Gov't Mule, Robyn Hitchcock and a couple from David Bowie's classic 'Hunky Dory' album.
Musicians Kevin Sekhani & Andrew Duplantis (both solo artists as well as being members of Mercy Brothers and Son Volt) are scheduled to drop by THE MEDICINE BALL CARAVAN today (11am-noon Central Standard on 88.7FM or www.krvs.org). Also: new and recent tracks by John Hiatt, Little Hurricane and Dylan Leblanc.
A lot can happen in six years. For Milwaukee-bred trumpeter Philip Dizack, it marked the passage of an era worth documenting in his own artistic chronology.
"End of an Era represents a moment when what you had is gone," he says about his new album during this session from WBGO's The Checkout. "For me, it's specific things like family relationships that ended. Both of my grandparents passed away. All those things were very personal, but I saw that everyone goes through something. And it's all the same."
Every morning, thousands of Cajun French music lovers tune in to KRVS to start their day with Pete Bergeron and "Bonjour Louisiane." 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.

We Killed: The Rise Of Women In American Comedy is a sprawling oral history that grew out of a Marie Claire piece. It has the loose structure of most similar books (of which there are more and more), though the introduction unfortunately ties it to the tired "women aren't funny" assertions that apparently we're not through talking about yet.
