For the first time in almost 40 years, the US Army Corps of Engi­neers opened a flood­gate yes­ter­day on the Mis­sis­sip­pi Riv­er in order to save cities fur­ther down the riv­er, such as New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, from the inevitabil­i­ty of dan­ger­ous and dam­ag­ing flood­ing.

Instead, the bay­ous of Louisiana will make the sac­ri­fice as flood waters flow through them.

The rain con­tin­ues to come down over the North Amer­i­can con­ti­nent, and so today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is the music of rain, storms and floods. You will hear music of all styles and gen­res as Radio Riel pays musi­cal trib­ute to the peo­ple all over North Amer­i­ca whom this rain and flood­ing has affect­ed.

We are also simul­cast­ing this pro­gram on Radio Riel New Toulouse. There will also be rain in the Estate of New Toulouse this morn­ing, and the waters will rise in New Toulouse Bay­ou and New Toulouse Algiers to show the peo­ple of Cajun Coun­try that we are send­ing them our prayers at this time.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at  http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
