Happy Friday!  This week's new releases include a 9 song all acoustic set from David Crosby, a stripped down country album from Lady Gaga, a Leonard Cohen record that lives up to it's title and what was originally intended as a Chrissie Hynde solo album finally appears, packaged as a Pretenders release, with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach aboard as producer. Plus some new catchy indie pop/rock from The Radio Dept., Crocodiles, Wavves spin off Spirit Club, Saint Motel and Jimmy Eat World.

Pretenders - Alone

Service Animals have become more prevalent in recent years.  Many people don't understand the rights of those with service animals or the rights of business owners when it comes to allowing service animals into their places of business.  Another area of confusion stems from proper etiquette when you are around a service animal, is it ok to pet them, distract them, etc.

Early Voting in Brevard County will begin Monday, October 24th and continue until Saturday, November 5th.

“Voter turnout is always highest during Presidential election years,” said Supervisor Scott. “For that reason, I have opened two additional Early Voting sites this election and expanded the number of days we will conduct Early Voting from 8 to 13. My goal is to make voting convenient and accessible to all Brevard voters.”

We were thrilled to have Wyclef Jean in our studios as part of Florida Tech Homecoming.  If you missed the session we have posted audio from it here:

  SAVE THE LAGOON - TOWN HALL METING    by Preserve Brevard, Inc. This educational event is being held when the early voting opens for the November 8, 2016 General Election.  Our  speakers will provide information that should help attendees understand issues related to the Brevard County Save Our Indian River Lagoon Project Plan.

Today, Chuck Berry turns 90.

And today, the man who helped define rock 'n' roll celebrates by announcing his first album in 38 years.

The album is simply called CHUCK, and it features a hometown backing band that includes his children Charles Berry Jr. on guitar and Ingrid Berry on harmonica, along with his bassist for nearly 40 years, Jimmy Marsala. The album was recorded in Berry's hometown of St. Louis and will be out in 2017.

Join us for a free, fun, family event to celebrate animal diversity, ecology, and conservation with a Halloween theme!

Enjoy a plethora of live animal encounters from creepy crawlies to cuddly softies, critter eco-art, building a bee house, trying your hand in a puppet play, meeting a mermaid, hiking with a guide to search for creatures, playing outdoor animal games, talking with animal rescuers and keepers, eating edible insects (or a more conventional meal from a food truck), and enjoying more creatures!

Costumes encouraged!

Rootfire At The Park is a music & lifestyle festival with the promise of exceptional music and thoughtful details that make a day outside better. Things like free sunscreen, games, and discounted tickets if you ride your bicycle. We are highlighting craft vendors who create thoughtful food, and local vendors who keep the energy close to home. In the beverage world, we extend the term craft to not only cover quality beer and wine, but to also offer a place to enjoy other beverages ranging from kombucha to kava kava, and beyond.

Some things are built to last. During the course of its two decades of making records, O.A.R.’s lead singer and primary songwriter Marc Roberge; drummer, Chris Culos; guitarist, Richard On; bassist, Benj Gershman and saxophonist/guitarist, Jerry DePizzo, has created and maintained a sort of a parallel universe. In effect hiding in plain sight from the world outside, the band fills arenas and amphitheaters as it crafts and releases relatable songs with big pop hooks with all of this activity going down completely apart from the mainstream.

The words “Indian River Lagoon” used to conjure images of serene waters, frolicking dolphins and wide-smiled anglers boasting their latest catch. Today, residents of Brevard and Indian River County may instead recall news coverage of sedimentary muck, algal blooms and massive fish kills. One of the many ways Florida Institute of Technology serves its community is through actionable environmental research—science that makes a difference. Faculty scientists and engineers at Florida Tech formed the Indian River Lagoon Research Institute (IRLRI) to help bring back some of the lagoon’s natural defenses and restore the estuary’s health.
