ARA discussion on the air right now

Joining Wakeup Call Friday host Richard Smith are Byron Marshall of ARA (Austin Revitalization Authority) and Paul. Hilgers of the City of Austin (Austin Housing Finance Corporation). They are conducting a very substantive conversation about the Eleventh and Twelfth Street corridors east of IH-35. Tune in to KAZI 88.7-fm radio to hear the remaining half hour of this fascinating show, discussing topics much in the news lately, including the recent coverage in the Chron and the local daily. Sometimes this show runs over past the 8 am ending. It will be followed, as usual on Fridays, by the Breakfast Club, with Akwasi Evans (Nokoa) and Tommy Wyatt (The Villager).

Addendum: Since KAZI has revitalized its schedule and can be heard better in more parts of town, if I’m where I can listen to a radio between 7 and 8 am on weekdays, I try to check in. The hosts rotate. The callers-in are lively and informed, and they often include Nelson Linder, of the NAACP. Live studio guests with lots to say are more often scheduled these days (e.g., this morning’s duo). The unexpected guest shows up for Sam & Bob, too, but never gets the extended and unbroken time bestowed on KAZI guests.
