Freak Week and Louisiana Flooding

Ames Musicians Larry "Red" Stoltenberg, Ron Carson, and Kent Johnson give the history of Freak Week, an Ames tradition of a counter culture alternative to Greek Week at ISU. There will be a Freak Week Revival at DG's Taphouse this Sunday evening and they tell us who will be performing.

KHOI reporter Whitney Wright gives an update on election polls of presidential candidates and discusses public opinion and candidates' stances on the issue of gun control and mass violence.

Richard and Carolyn Newkirk are residents of Ankeny who recently went with the Iowa Red Cross to Louisiana to be of help after the disastrous flooding there.

Robert Sherman is a local resident of Baton Rouge who gives us his take on the effect of the flood on his community. He also compares the events in Louisian to what happened during Hurricane Katrina. Sherman is producer and host of Down the Road at WHYR, a show that KHOI airs on Fridays at 2:00 PM.
