KRVS

Lafayette, LA – Mexico. Land of big-hatted vaqueros singing songs of love and nationalism, of mariachi bands playing sentimental melodies. A place where trends move slowly. Where traditional, country-style music or saccharine, plastic pop are the music of choice for millions of listeners north and south of the U.S. border.

Lafayette, LA – Broadcast Indecency. That's a term garnering increased attention. The phrase, upon closer scrutiny, casts a broad net. Obscenities and vulgarity, topics considered taboo in decades past, now seem thrust upon listeners increasingly. And to single out a specific genre-Hip Hop-is not entirely correct.
