Paul Naquin

LSU Professor of Music Jesse Allison joins us in studio to talk about the Red Stick Future Fest happening tomorrow from 2pm-5pm. You can get more information about this event online at "FutureFest is an exhibition of the best of tomorrow." 

Paul Naquin calls in to talk about the controversial lawsuit between the city-parish and Steve Myers, local landlord and lawyer, over the definition of family. The Supreme Court overturned District Judge Janice Clark's decision. She agreed with Myers argument that the city parish can't prohibit more than two unrelated people from living together -- but that was shot down Wednesday. Naquin says this is a victory for the people of Baton Rouge and those who value living in "nice neighborhoods." 

Dan Ireland, Artistic Director of the Louisiana International Film Festival, discusses the big event which begins today and runs through Sunday at Cinemark in Perkins Rowe. You can find the festival schedule at


Filmmaker Deborah Perkin joins Jim in the studio to discuss her new documentary film Bastards, which will be playing on LSU's campus at the Howe-Russell Atrium on March 26th at 6:30pm.

Author Deborah Feldman talks with Jim about her new book Exodus, in which she tackles her life issues with being an Hasidic Jew.

Susan Shillinglaw, English Professor at San Jose Sate University and author, joins us to discuss her latest book on Steinbeck entitled On Reading The Grapes of Wrath.

Also, Paul Naquin chimes in on section 8 housing around the Baton Rouge area.
