What motivates students to learn, work hard, and persevere through life’s toughest challenges?

DJ Drew's Sunday Show! with tunes from Apprentice Destroyer, Joanna Newsom, Young Rival and Wet Nurse
New music from Joanna Newsome, Pure Bathing Culture, Phantom Horse, and Young Rival.
Hanabi completed their sweep of New Orleans over Halloween weekend and it was a real eat-fest from start to finish. Yes there were several trips to Cafe Du Monde. That’s mandatory. But it was the jazz brunch at Commander’s Palace among others that stole the show. We’re talking bbq shrimp and grits here! The LPG Burger at La Petite Grocery is ridiculous! They have badass shrimp and grits too! If you want to get weird on Magazine st. head over to District Donuts. Not that their food is at all weird. It’s just a really cool thing to say. While Hanabi was out partying, other Hanabi found some Mole Salumi at Salumi Cured Meats. You’re welcome! He also made some beer and bacon pancakes. You’re extra welcome.
Sundays with DJ Drew on BTR with awesome tunes from The Garden, Wand, Son Little, Here We Go Magic and The Manties
The Thursday Mix for the first week of November features new music from Little Fevers, Young Rival, Pure Bathing Culture and more! You'll also hear a track off of Joanna' Newsom's latest release Diver's and a lovely tune by an artist I recently discovered, John Mark Nelson.
Welcome to a Halloween edition of the Party Hour on BreakThru Radio. Tonight your host J.Dayz is in the mix with a continuous playlist of indie music. Get into the Halloween vibe with music from DeadMau5, Ghostland Observatory, Evil Nine and many others.
This week Hanabi gives us the dirt on his trip to New Orleans. Let’s get Cafe Du Monde right out of the way. It’s truly an amazing place in which $5 gets you instant gratification. A chicory coffee and plate of fresh beignets is really all you need. Open 24 hours too! As Hanabi is wont to do, he visited an Izakaya for a fresh take on octopus. It took him awhile to eat it but it was worth it. He went to the famed Lafitte’s Blacksmith and saw a cop on horseback stroll up and order a drink. Speaking of drinks, he sampled LA 31’s Biere Noir. He stuck around the French Quarter, but that place is loaded with places to eat and drink and just see weird things in general. Oh, Hanabi will be there over halloween and Day of the Dead so there will be more to report.
It’s probably the last week all in 2015 (and a good portion of 2016) that we’re going to see 70 degrees, so I put together a nice, breezy playlist in celebration. We’ve got a lot of electronic sounds on the show today that are perfect to space out to while you’re taking a walk enjoying what’s left of the not-terrible weather! And as always, don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and Sound Cloud!
