Lafayette, LA – The rise of radio approximately 80 years ago, made manifest very special things called "summer songs." You can't exactly define a summer song, but you surely know it when you hear one. There are light, innocent, stupid kinds of summer songs (WHAM!, "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," August 1984; Paper Lace, "The Night Chicago Died," June 1974). OK, REAL stupid. There are revolutionary summer songs (Chuck Berry, "Maybelline," August 1955; Jerry Lee Lewis, "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On," June 1957).

Lafayette, LA – Bob Edwards, who has been the signature voice for NPR's Morning Edition for 25 years, will be re-assigned as a Senior Correspondent for NPR, effective April 30th, 2004. The sound of Morning Edition has been inseparable from Mr. Edwards's rich baritone since the show was launched in 1979. Morning Edition is the number one ranked morning show on radio, with approximately 13 million listeners. And that has played a huge role in NPR's success and that of it member stations, like 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.
