Please Give

Please make a quick online donation to Baton Rouge Community Radio this holiday season.

We need your continued financial support to stay on the air and make our programming even better. Community radio broadcasts live local high school sports, the best music carefully curated by our local volunteer show hosts from a wide variety of genres – especially local artists! – and important talk and news from our city and around the world.

We hope you enjoy and appreciate what you hear on WHYR 96.9 FM throughout the year. Our programming is made by your friends and neighbors right here in Baton Rouge along with select syndicated broadcasts from far and wide that you aren’t going to hear on other radio stations in town.

We can only do this because people like you and the volunteers who create our unique programming and operate the station are generous with their time and money. You can make a donation HERE.

Thank you and we wish you a very happy holiday season!

A Pause for Thought on Louisiana’s non-unanimous jury law and Constitutional Amendment #2

This week’s A Pause for Thought features Southern University Law Professor Angela Allen-Bell on Louisiana’s unusual non-unanimous jury law and the upcoming November 6th vote on constitutional amendment #2 to change the law to require jury unanimity. You can listen on-demand here to host Wayne Parker and Dr. Allen-Bell discuss the history of the 10-2 jury law, its effects in Louisiana courtrooms, and the efforts to reform the law leading up to this November’s mid-term election vote.
