This week on Left of the Dial, KRCU’s independent music program, we hear from the New York band Pill, whose new song "Midtown" takes phrases from the more lurid headlines out of the New York Post. We’ll also hear new music from Tokyo Police Club, Villagers and more.

Left Of The Dial airs Friday nights from 9-11pm and Saturdays from noon-2pm on KRCU. 


The City of Cape Girardeau

Next month, the Cape Girardeau Police Department will unveil the beginning phases of a new crime prevention program aimed at housing. A cooperative effort between property owners, managers, residents and the police department, the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program will ultimately aim at reducing crime on rental properties, and at making them a more appealing place to live for residents.

Community service officer, Richard Couch says Phase 1 will discuss management training and the landlord-tenant law, and Phase 2 will include a property security assessment.

Mental Health America states, “Whether for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or depression - health screenings provide a quick and easy way to spot the first signs of serious illness and can reach people who might not otherwise seek professional medical advice. Clinical depression is a common medical illness. Like screenings for other illnesses, depression screenings should be a routine part of healthcare.”

Today is Depression Screening Day.
