Lindsey Grojean

Host - KRCU Morning Edition, Producer

Lindsey is a student at Southeast Missouri State University, studying a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a minor in Mass Communication. She spends her time discovering new music, strolling about Cape Girardeau’s antique shops, and gardening. You can see her perform with the Jazz ensembles at Southeast’s River Campus. Lindsey’s dream career is to be a voice actress. As she awaits her big break, she hopes to retain jobs in on-air hosting, DJ-ing, and performing as a young adult. Or for the rest of her life.

On "Drive Dish,” Lindsey Grojean and Barb Herbert dish about the gifts being offered to donors during KRCU’s 2017 Fall Fund Drive, including the new KRCU/NPR mug, KRCU umbrella, and the classic KRCU stainless steel mug with a lid that is, indeed, for travel.

Old Town Cape announced Monday it’s participating in a campaign called “Partners in Preservation: Main Streets.”

 

Old Town Cape could receive up to $150,000 in funding towards revitalization efforts at the Common Pleas Courthouse Park now known as ‘Ivers Square'. It was renamed in June of this year after former slave, James Ivers, who enlisted in the Union Army in 1863 after receiving his freedom.

On Sunday, people across the country will be participating in “Concert Across America,” a series of concerts bringing awareness to gun violence. For the first time, the Southeast Missouri chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is sponsoring two concerts in Cape Girardeau for the cause. KRCU’s Lindsey Grojean spoke with the group’s local president, Lynda Stewart, and Paul Thompson, who is in charge of programming for Concert Across America, about the event, and a bit about Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

A ribbon cutting ceremony took place at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of their new isolation care unit. The new building functions as a quarantined space for sick animals undergoing treatment, while keeping healthy animals at the main shelter protected from incoming disease.

 

Charlotte Craig, Board President at the Humane Society, says since they don’t know what strays have been exposed to before they come into their care, they now can prepare for the instance of a serious illness.

"The City of Cape Girardeau" Facebook Page (satirical page)

If you live in Cape Girardeau and have a Facebook account, you might have seen a page boasting the name, “The City of Cape Girardeau.” It has the city’s seal as its profile picture, and nearly 6,000 followers and counting. But there’s a catch; it’s not run by the city of Cape Girardeau and the posts on the page aren’t real either...  It’s a satire page. One post that resonated with many people in August went a little something like this:

And another, earlier this month:
