Wakeup call wakes people up

If you weren’t listening to the Wakeup Call this past week, here’s just some of what you missed: a long and in-depth forum featuring the candidates in the Democratic primary run-off election for district attorney, many first-hand accounts from those who attended the Travis County Democratic convention this past weekend as delegates or alternates, and a discussion this morning with a call-in by Chief Acevedo on how the Austin Police Department is preparing for the Texas Relays and all the visitors that this major event will bring to Austin this week. KAZI 88.7-fm broadcasts the Wakeup Call from 7 to 8 am five days a week.

Chief Acevedo said that there will be more information about APD and the Texas Relays weekend up at the City’s site later today, but it’s not there yet. He was encouraging visitors to see more of Austin than Sixth Street only. There’s way more than the official Relays site, with its schedule of all the track and field events. Here are some sources for the party side: Urban 512, SoulCiti, the Urban Music Fest, and TexasRelays.com. It’s the site for the Urban Music Fest that brings us a guide, complete with reviews, of some Austin restaurants owned by African-Americans, with information supplied by the Austin Blackpages.
