    On December 7 at 6:00 pm The Better Picture returns with guest Dony Wynn. Dony, our own Alexandria native has lived an artist life, seeing and hearing, seeing and sharing things filtered through his own perspective. He has travelled the world as a drummer playing with such greats as Robert Palmer, Robert Plant, Dr. John, Brooks and Dunn, Pattie LaBelle and others. He moved on to an isolated lifestyle with camera in hand and observed the decay of materials and Nature’s reclamation process. We present Dony to answer your questions December 7, 2021 at 6:00 PM, right here on Red River Radio. Hosted by Ross Foote.
  • Schedule of special programming over the next two weeks
  • Health Matters, 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. On this Health Matters we talk with Dr. Robert Holladay, Professor of Clinical Internal Medicine and Program Director for the Interventional Pulmonology Fellowship Program at LSU Health Shreveport, about the etiology of lung cancer and the latest treatments. We are also joined by Jarrod Mitchell, Cardiac Rehab Coordinator at Willis-Knighton Health System, to talk about smoking cessation.
  • Marcie Howard and our panel discuss various holidays and celebrations that take place during November and December.
  • In the November 17, 2021 episode of Conserving Earth, we explore how longleaf pine forest restoration in Kisatchie National Forest also supports restoration of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker population in Louisiana. Rebecca Triche talks with US Forest Service’s Lisa Lewis, forest supervisor; Jonny Fryar, district ranger; and Jim Caldwell, public affairs officer. Declines in wildlife species are directly related to declines in habitat. Longleaf pine habitat is one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world and relies on management practices using prescribed burning. We also learn more about the history of Louisiana’s only national forest, which encompasses 604,000 acres, and how you can access Kisatchie for recreational uses such as camping, hiking, boating, fishing, hunting.
