    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    I'm in North Florida and Wednesday I saw men out in the bay putting up the orange barriers in the coastal waters. They think the oil will impact our coastline staring on Monday. Such a shame for all the wildlife that thrives here on our coast. Also, I can't help but wonder if any of the bodies of the men who are missing will wash in. I know that's a morbid thought, but their families need closure and it would be a better thing to have a their bodies to bury. Saying a prayer for everyone and everything that has and will be impacted by this.

    This is really bad for our shrimpers and fishermen here in Louisiana, Mississipi, Alabama, and Florida. GB them all.
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!

    Shame on you BP.

    I forgot to mention Mississippi sorry. They have already found one bird covered in oil . They say this is the worst time for birds because they are migrating and the fish are spawning. This is not to mention the shrimp , oysters and turtles. This won't be an easy fix. They can't find the shut off valve for the oil rig. So now they may have to dig and attach another line into the spewing oil that is said to be pouring over 43,000 gallons daily.

    I'm in the same area as Gypsy. Our newspaper has lots of coverage of the oil spill:

    My nephew's ship the "Wasp" has been ordered to help out at the scene...he just e-mailed us last night as he was leaving for NY for a weekend pass but was called back...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    This is so horrrible. I hate the most what it does to the creatures, epecially the birds. Birds are my favorite brings on earth and I can't even watch and see them covered and helpless in this stuff.

    Why can't the butt rich oilmen do something about this? It happens over and over again and it seems this has not been any kind of a priority. Why haven't they used some of their big bucks to find a way to deal with these things and develope methods to keep them from becoming disasters?

    I feel bad for all the people and animals involved.

    Just got finished watching our news (Florida Panhandle), and I just want to cry. They say the size of the oil slick is the size of Jamaica, and is going to impact Louisiana to Florida not just in the next week, but for weeks to come, months, maybe even years. It's a mess! This is going to devastate our shores, our wildlife, the livelyhood of families who depend on the water for jobs. Our news reported that a confidential report is saying it could be as high as 50 thousand barrels (about 2 1/2 million gallons) a day coming out of that well! This is so sad. I can't believe this happened! I can't stop thinking about all the wildlife that is going to be affected by this! Authorities have posted info in our local paper (Daisy7 linked it above) for anyone who can or wants to help volunteer with cleaning the shores. They will have training available.

    I just added a post on prayer thread..... this is a nightmare!!!!!!

    "Dispersants are still being aggressively applied. Over 100,000 gallons have been applied."
    FYI, "dispersants" can be translated to mean Dawn dishwashing liquid!

    Thank you so much noZme. When it first happened, BP indicated the leak wasn't that bad. They kind of down played the spillage almost, and it's like all of the sudden this thing grew, or we just weren't told the true extent of it. They are saying it could be worse than the Valdez spill. They have been unsuccessful caping it off so far. Keep praying for all the little creatures and for the families this will effect.

    Everyone keep praying-the effects of this catastrophe will be felt by everyone (in various ways) in the US (not just gulf coast residents) for decades!!

    I am so sick over all of this and enraged as well. If they are going to drill out in the ocean there should be better means to stop this from happening then what apparently is in place now. This is catastrophic in more ways then one ....

    I am saddened about all the lives lost as well from this and my prayers go out to all of the loved ones who have lost someone.

    I have always been against off shore drilling this is my main reason why. When you are drilling on land and something like this happens you can at least reach it to fix the problem, and it is not as devestating.

    If people would pull their head out of you know where there are plenty of alternatives to sustain our oil dependency alot that are reusable. I am so sick of standing by watching in disbelief the destruction of our planet when will people get a clue ?

    I have to go before I really get on a rampage ... sorry

    This is a prime example of why I am opposed to drilling in environmentally sensitive areas.

    I wish I could remember exactly what was said, but there was a talking head on last night on Anderson Cooper saying that the US is the only country who does not require some sort of safety device on these rigs that could prevent a catastrophe of this magnitude. All other countries who drill for oil have to have these devices installed by law. The device cost 1/2 million dollars - which is really nothing when were talking oil and oil companies. I'll go see if I can find a link....

    We're just kind of watching a waiting here in North Florida. No one knows quite what to expect or how to prepare.
