When Anderson covered Spring Break in New Orleans (March 23rd) he featured college students working to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This, to me, seemed like such a good pairing of those in need and those with the time and energy to do a great deal of good. That in mind, I went to work contacting various agencies who have organizations on the ground in NOLA and asked what programs they have in place for this summer. With the help of Rita at Andernations, and many more in the Andercommunity, a website has been developed that is aimed at college and high school students, teachers, even families who have time during the summer to get involved. Most of the organizations listed on Caring 4 Katrina supply their volunteers with food, shelter and transportation to the various work projects. You are responsible for your transportation to and from New Orleans. So please check out the Caring 4 Katrina website and PLEASE pass it on to anyone that you think might be interesting in lending a hand and their heart to a good cause. With your help maybe we, as a community, can make a difference. Thank you.
If you have a website, blog, belong to an online community or My Space and would help us spread the word by displaying this banner you'll have our eternal gratitude.

Just a few comments about this weeks excellent 360 shows. Have you noticed the slow but steady relaunch of the 'coolness factor' in the show? It's almost getting to be as hip as the 'red' 360 that most of us miss so much. I'm lovin the additions of The Angles, The Shot, etc.
And they're infusing decent bump music into both hours now, instead of saving it for the second. Don't know what caused it but I've got my fingers crossed that the show keeps heading in this direction.
And one last note about Wednesday's show. The Anderca segment in the first hour was just the best I've seen in a very long time. If you missed it, I'm sorry!
