WFPL stands behind the cancelation of SOA

As the public outcry against the cancelation of 'State Of Affairs' picks up, WFPL pushes back with a comment on their Facebook page today. "our local programming continues and will grow, is you will hear int he[sp] coming weeks, but change is a part of that growth." LPM vice president Todd Mundt continued with "While some listeners enjoyed the show, we also had a clear mandate for change from our audience. Since the change, we've received a number of compliments for the replacement program. We celebrate what we've done before, but it was clearly time for a change."
Well, it seems there is also a clear mandate to save local programing, and preserve the small portion of a public voice we have left in local radio, as there is a grass roots campaign growing to bring back SOA and to have more of a say in local programing.
Paul Carney, Creator of the 'Bring Back State Of Affairs' Facebook page, posted "I think a lot of people don't understand what the change is leading toward. We see things disappear right after they're celebrated for a fund drive, we see an uptick in snippet coverage, and we see more national programming . . ."
As we are supporters  of local programing and the belief that we should have a say in it, we will continue to post about this discussion, and hope you will share your comments about local programing and the loss of SOA.

Facebook petition to bring back SOA

The abrupt announcement last week by Louisville Public Media to cancel State Of Affairs shocked many Louisvillians, including many 37 Flood readers.
We were very happy to learn of a FaceBook Petition to bring back State Of Affairs, and encourage everyone to to take a look and sign up.
Tho, it may be too late for the former host, Julie Credence, who left LPM this week.
Thanks to Paul C for putting together this petition.

5/8 Mixtape monthly at Tyler Park

There is a group that meets once a month at Tyler Park for a pot luck and to exchange mixtapes.. it's called mixtape monthly... and it's open to everyone. all you need to do is bring a potluck and a mixtape (of 8 songs of more) and take it to the park at 5pm. it's not clear if mix CDRs are acceptable, but i'm guessing it is. this month's theme is sexXXy exchange.

Review: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart in Bloomington 4/29

Last night I took a field trip with some friends to see Twin Shadow and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart in Bloomington. The majority of the trip consisted of cupcakes and chatting, as we drove into Bloomington we witnessed some interesting sites, a real live camel (my favorite animal) and 30 goats on a hill; I felt these were signs that the night would be interesting…I was right. We got to the venue (Rhino’s) and find out it is all ages, which means two things: no alcohol, and 12 year old children; both of which we were not prepared for.
 The first band went on at about 9pm they were a local band called Weakness; the music was over processed punk with the vocals turned all the way up. If they stick with it they definitely have potential to be a good band. The lead singer was jumping around like Iggy Pop, which could be awesome but they were no Stooges. Next was our main event Twin Shadow who put on a fantastic show, it was energetic and the crowd really enjoyed it. They played some of our favorites including "At My Heels" and "Forget", George Lewis seemed to really enjoy playing, hopefully they will stop in Louisville soon. After a short break between sets, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart took the stage to finish the night. I was pretty excited to see these guys, their newest album Belong came out in March of this year, and I loved it. If you haven’t checked them out go for it don’t let the name scare you, they make some great pop music.
Remembering that this is an all ages venue,  my friends and I are surrounded by young kids who happen to be some of the more entertaining dancers I have seen in my life, naturally we can’t help but laugh a little when they nearly knock us out with their flying elbows. Looking back it was cute, we have all been there right? It ended up being a memorable night for everyone. I’m glad I ventured into the world of the north for the show, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Twin Shadow are amazing bands, and I hope next time they make a stop in Louisville.

Julie Credence leaves WFPL

We reported last week that the radio program State Of Affiars hosted by Julie Credence had been canceled by WFPL. The public radio station announced that although they have canceled the show, they would keep Julie Credence on staff. We have just learned that Julie has left WFPL.
Last week we mourned the loss of State Of Affairs, today we mourn the loss of the talented radio host. As local radio quickly becomes homonogised & syndicated, I hope one day soon there will be a realization in the necessity of local programing. But by then it may be too late.
