A memorial service will be held Saturday, June 29 at 11 am in Lawless Memorial Chapel at Dillard University for Mercedes Tucker Stamps, a highly esteemed music educator, who taught for over thirty years at 10 different New Orleans schools. She passed away recently in North Carolina at the age of 87.
When New Orleans flooded after Hurricane Katrina, 90.7 fell silent as our station was damaged and our staff and show hosts were scattered around the country. We were saved when WFMU threw us a lifeboat. Now it's our turn to return the helping hand.
Last year we reported to you from Joseph S. Clark High School in the Treme, which was in the process of shifting management to the Firstline Schools charter group. We returned a year later to check in see how Clark - known for its musical alumni - is doing.
