Episode 01 : The Charter School Scam – CitationsNeeded – Medium:

Back-to-school special!

Do you love tuning in to Counterspin from on WTUL News & Views on Mondays? This new podcast, CitationsNeeded, is hosted by Adam Johnson and Nima Shirazi, political commentators and media analysts with

Episode 1 features a discussion about charter schools and, basically, why they’re awful. They look into the agenda behind the pro-charter film Waiting for Superman, the ongoing demonization of teachers and their unions, the fudging, inflation and wholesale manufacturing of test scores that demonstrate “success”, and also try to find some silver linings among the dark clouds. For instance, the fact that everyone hates Betsy DeVos is helping. They are joined by the incomparable Jennifer Berkshire, journalist, podcaster, and education editor at Alternet.

“You want to talk about reform? Just say: I’m not impressed that you can get 10 degrees in prison if you’re not going to give me a chance to get out.”



On Wednesday, July 14th, Dances For Solidarity- and ongoing project led by dance artist Sarah Dahnke in collaboration with other dancers, choreographers, artists, and socially conscious individuals- hosted an evening of performances followed by a panel discussion on women’s issues as they relate to incarceration and reentry. 

At this event in particular, a dance choreographed in collaboration with Dushaan Gillum- who is incarcerated in solitary confinement in Texas- and danced by Shantell Turner, Adinas Perkins, Dolfinette Martin, Rhonda Oliver, and Latasha Williams was performed. 

The panel discussion that followed touched on the topics of education, motherhood, mentorship, systemic racism, and recidivism as they relate to incarceration, reentry, and womanhood. 

The panel is made up of women from the National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, Family and Friends of Louisiana’s Incarcerated Children (FLICC), Voice of the Experienced, Operation Restoration, and Covenant House. 

These women are Syrita Steib-Martin, Dolita Willhype, Verna Carr, and Dolfinette Martin.

WTUL News and Views DJ Under The Bus interviewed organizer Lara Crigger about Metairie Indivisible. Participants at a July 22nd Protest hosted by the organization shared comments and personal stories about why they are urging Senator Bill Cassidy to oppose the GOP Health Bill. The “Better Care Reconciliation Act” - [The Senate’s version of the GOP House Bill: The American Health Care Act of 2017- - is set for a vote July 4th. 

The “First do no harm! Statewide Rally!” was attended by over 60 people who stood out in the wind and weather as the tail end of tropical storm Cindy blew by.

Metairie Indivisible is a bipartisan community of like-minded Metairie residents fighting corruption. Along with other Indivisible chapters in LA, they have been meeting outside the offices of Senator Cassidy each week to express support for the Affordable Care Act, to express concerns about Trump’s cabinet appointees, and to stand against the recent Muslim ban.

Listen to what they had to say.

Keyboard ist keinesfalls gleich Keyboard. Insbesondere für den Fall, dass Sie turnusmäßig spielen, ist es wesentlich, dass Sie das Instrument erwerben, das Ihnen langanhaltend Freude macht und motiviert.

Dies Spielgefühl ist hierbei ein wichtiger Faktor. Dieses Spielgefühl mag mehrfach bestimmen, inwiefern Sie auf lange Sicht Freude am Spielen haben werden. Beachtenswerte Faktoren, auf die Sie beim Kauf des Keyboards achten müssen:

In der Auswahl der Keyboards gibt es bereits in der grundlegenden Ausstattung jede Menge Unterschiede. So sollte das Gerät unbedingt einen Umfang von fünf Oktaven bieten.

Außerdem sollten die Tasten mitnichten zu schmal oder zu kurz sein. Dies wird speziell Neulingen das Erlernen des Keyboards erleichtern.

Achten Sie gleichermaßen darauf, dass die Oberfläche der Keyboardtasten so hergestellt wurde, dass Sie keinesfalls abrutschen.

Bei Ihrer Suche sollten Sie des Weiteren beachten, dass die Lautsprecher Ihres Keyboards hochwertig sind, damit der Klang des Keyboards auch langanhaltend gut klingt und mit der Zeit nicht schlechter wird.

Achten sie darauf, dass das Gerät über jegliche Anschlussmöglichkeiten verfügt, die heute zum Standard gehören. Ein USB-Anschluss ist dieser Tage Norm bei zahlreichen Keyboards und ermöglicht es Ihnen, neue Klänge einzuspielen, sowie Dateien in das Keyboard zu laden. Es ermöglicht obendrein, eigene Sounds einzuspielen und diese auf dem Rechner zu speichern.

Wichtig ist gleichwohl eine Klinkenbuchse, um dort einen Kopfhörer anzuschließen. Dies hat den Pluspunkt, dass Sie auch in der Nacht trainieren können, ohne dass andere Menschen senkrecht in den Betten stehen (und beileibe nicht mitsingen).

Benötigen Sie Zusatzfunktionen, beispielsweise die Möglichkeit des Live-Einsatzes und unterschiedliche Sounds, greifen Sie besser zu einem Instrument der Profi-Klasse.

The radio station is falling apart. Because of the broken machines, the broadcast is constantly interrupted to the point y'all are unlistenable. I donated $225 to this year's Marathon, where did that money go? Having working CD players is paramount to having a radio station. Until WTUL replaces those broken machines, I have to listen to other stations, and that sucks!

Wow WTUL, I'm embarrassed for yall today :( The DJ on air at the 9:30am air break (interrupting Democracy Now) made a total ass of himself, whining about how we aren't listening to HIM comment on the news. Meanwhile he's interrupting the family of the man killed by police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, as well as other folks connected to that story. I think it is obvious why we have compelling interviews with folks who are relevant to the news instead of an irrelevant angry man-child like Jimmy Huck. Presumably this only happened because of some kind of summertime staffing shortage, but still, we the listeners deserve better. When the airwaves aren't being hijacked by pathetic figures like him, WTUL is still one of the best radio stations in New Orleans. But please don't ruin it, and don't like people like this go on the mic nonstop, interrupting a really important story like that of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

A deep dish of gratitude to WTUL for playing our new record MAXWELL, MUHLY & COULOIR...many times :) COULOIR has been to New Orleans and Baton Rogue before and you're inspiring us to come back, if for no other reason to stop by the station and meet you! You now have my ear :)
