This week I'm playing the latest album from the massive Toronto indie rock collective Broken Social Scene. Hug of Thunder has 18 musician credits on it, and I thought it would be fun to see how far I could take the show along just playing Broken Social Scene and its associated acts. It turns out filling up an hour was easy-peasy so that's I've done, no particular rhyme, reason, or ranking, just an hour of awesome tunes. 

If you’re a fan of Redhawks Athletics, now is the perfect time to show your support. The annual Redhawks Club membership drive launched today and will continue for the next two weeks.

The Redhawks Club is the official booster organization for SEMO Athletics. Proceeds generated by the Redhawks Club are used to provide athletics scholarships and program enhancements to support more than 320 Division I student-athletes.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory effective through Sunday for Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. It was issued as a result of afternoon temperatures climbing to the mid to upper 90s, combined with oppressive humidity, which will produce afternoon heat index readings of 100 to 105 degrees over 5 consecutive days.

 

Meteorologist Robin Smith of the National Weather Service in Paducah says it’s not abnormal to have heat advisories this time of year.

Earlier this month, the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri temporarily closed its doors due to a possible distemper outbreak. The shelter underwent a deep cleaning and quarantined animals, after learning one of its recently adopted dogs showed possible signs of having the virus.

Development Director of the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri, Lindsey Morales, said although they have reopened, the public still does not have access to the kennels.

Have you cranked up one of your favorite songs when it came on the radio while carpooling and instantly been in a better mood? Do you turn on KRCU’s “Caffe Concerto” or “Afternoon Classics” when you need to focus on a project for work? Have you put yourself to sleep singing a lullaby to a baby?

It’s not just your imagination. Music has powerful effects on us mentally and physically.
