One more thing: Every fourth Monday, Good Points Radio will become ‘Shakedown Radio’, Louisiana’s ONLY Grateful Dead radio hour!¬†Does the neat freak in you prefer the un-paralleled perfection of May 1977? Or do you crave the rabid acid-test psychedelia of early 1969? Do you enjoy listening to Jerry scorch theaters and auditoriums off of the face of the earth? 1971 is for you. Is your space getting hot? Take an ’82 Althea and call me in the morning. Feel like a stranger? Need a miracle? Spring 1990 is your ticket. It’s gonna be some rare and different tunes – only on 96.9FM Baton Rouge!

Democracy Now! on the toxic consequences of Harvey for industry front-line communities in Houston and Port Arthur, TX

Tuesday, September 5th’s Democracy Now! broadcast included a toxic tour of Houston neighborhoods bordering the dozens of petrochemical facilities along the Houston Ship Channel. The shutdown, flooding and start-up of those facilities increased the existing heavy burden of pollution on these communities, also affected by high water and fears of immigrant enforcement in the recovery process. ¬†https://www.democracynow.org/shows/2017/9/5

Last Thursday, DN! spoke with residents on the ground in Port Arthur, Texas, a city overwhelmed by floodwaters and surrounded by numerous industrial plants.
