If that's accurate if you are at the delusional concert any left throw them out there wrapped up or not by now but. My point is that if you've experienced a concert in the arena in the last six months to a year how edited sound. What does sound good you think this kind of isolated incident or has sounded a cup for a living thing about the band's. Entertain at that they have and at the new it's got to be top notch should be.

You guys tell me they'll be my eyes and ears fuel you've been to a concert in the arena. Had a sound don't mean the last six months to a year they got to fix it does have gotten several reports now text messages. About this concert going on right now collegial and going back to read until he peppers that is one very good now I also saw already hot chili peppers and Jazz Fest.

Legacy missile volatile federal assistance dollars. For the interest and and now the download it in Dublin and out. On road construction it's in that's been going on for a year year and a half now.

We know customer. What's been your actions your interactions like with city workers and also city services. Have been positive. He waited a long time we've requested somebody asked the city to address some open. Andy made you wait or was it a prompt service. Bible fortress he still want that 18 semi tech's 87870.

A couple of text earlier than its. Sound quality was inducted in the first complaint early got a few welcome. And I remembered. Two weeks ago and red hot to a government down same kind of texts in Cink tweets. The rim might have a problem. Acoustical I guess.

Where yours different remind the same as my where the where they better come. IG had had to get treated by C workers in particular I'm sure. There are a lot of a lot of folks out there that are not happy about meter maids are on the way within their cut a ruthless as well I'm lucky I'm Alison could only get a ticket but. Man. C workers in general though. I've found and I pain all of move with the same rush. Have had enough interaction and all who went with a you know maybe a large enough sample size is telling my last two interactions have been positive. Tell me. How how long you waited for a city service perhaps you request itself and and we waited longer than ten days to get to get a reaction argue word from the city and Italy earlier. And look this is full disclosure. I writes my dad lives abroad or he's won at the house and talked about. And there's that that street flooding going on for the Boston pipe and there's another one that belongs is another. Leak that belongs to AT&T. Apparently and the city hasn't addressed either one problem. So there's water all in all this follow on all down the street it's on it's it's kind of a river. That you know I'll I would say runs. 0600 coming in about 600 feet. Only down the block so that they and it's unacceptable that they would have to wait six months to even get a response. From the city and I mean I immediately and our response to him was able these he counselor involved acumen exactly utility did not put. Man it's shameful. To go six months not get a response for. For a homeowner particular. Business owners I'm sure you have had similar interactions as well you request a southern maybe he getting media response are you didn't. It's frustrating in particular win just this year they re property taxes and you take it city services that come out. And fix a flooding issue on your street because. Abu Abbas the pipe underneath the ground and I went out there I saw they come mark that off and walked off the Ares I guess that may be ounces or as a response but they did that weeks and weeks and weeks ago.

Tired to see this story come up way too often. Thought about Tiger Woods. He's injured again. Backs out of the next two tournaments. But I think tiger's done. I think he's faced that reality I think and by and large. If you look where he's ranked the last couple years last painful years that's been obvious that he's that he's he's not the goal of the golfer he wants what's. But. I don't know the year we're gonna see him play golf again on a consistent basis. Is bodies of broke down before resides. I'm. In Tiger Woods and he changed the game of golf meat he he he increased the views of the popularity golf. When he burst on the scene you know ten or fifteen years ago and is wildly popular Tiger Woods was the reason why you tuned in on Sunday to see him make Enron. He's wearing the red shirt. He's backed out of a low the next two tournaments he bailed out of one I think we can happen yourself. Yes and he hasn't played golf outing over a year and a half. He's he's a grown you know you've had other golfers kind of emerged Roy McIlroy and others that have not taken over center stage if you will let all the circuit on the PGA tour. Do you think Tiger Woods will be back and also. Are you pulling for Tiger Woods' comeback. And he wanna see him play are you thinking he's he's on the dot. I feel like this point with him out of injuries that he sustained. I don't know that we're gonna see Tiger Woods' comeback on the PGA tour around and you'll ever see him. I know you never see them. Like he was ten years ago. They just one app I will subway comeback here on double coverage we'll announce the winner the fitness I drive fitness. Thirty day free trial on WL IMF and knock down. What are the piano sounds like a carnival. Over there in the arena whose piano man from Billy Joseph he's playing right now in the arena got a text here at 87870. Piano man rocks wish lower year awesome performance acoustics. Still little rough here. I wish I was there too though wouldn't mind being at the collegial culture fresher piano man is by far his best his best he's got a number I'm uptown girl. Meaning you rattle them off at a levee some Billy Joseph Murphy on I ten what's go on and you on WW well. Gotten much Christian you don't know what a good Friday night oh yeah you about. Yeah you are urged. Its aren't the patriots. Who can. I mean. Our number right in the they were. About but certain people or. Not ordered White House because Obama was president. I don't know if they did and I mean there's been there's been other. Similar. Stances from athletes in the past I mean. Yeah if you just tempest in a Jeep main enemy that still beat you in order go now it Bruton Arctic state you know could. All of their invitation and Brittany thank our parent school that's on them. But in order to get in an uproar that some people at dig into what they want they order Coco you know so don't go. Yeah OR yeah overblown amendment does the story coming overblown that. The exact. Now as far as city ignore it and it's been going down hill. Since late Japanese mid eighties. Every ball. You know I mean here's the thing though here's the thing though. OK city services. Have been a sore spot for awhile. But. Yeah and I get that put. You can control how your city workers interact with the public in how courteous they are like there's a certain amount you can you can control there a and I understand that there might be infrastructure issues roads and be repaired. Not a money I understand how that can happen. But when you're interacting with a city worker. There's no reason for them there's no reason for them to have an attitude none. With the mail unless you get ugly with them when and in a fine and in gloves are off all's fair game but with Europe one Payer bill. Are your seeking help you're riding a streetcar or wore one in one of their city services. And they had an add to the gates is unacceptable and when I worry about his. Dislike W to a we represent New Orleans we were we represented great community we're a big part of the community. And if we represent poorly the week we should get called out on have no issues that and as as a radio host. And if I had a terrible attitude with a caller that's unfair to them well and rude and and in insulting. And in I I should be I should be held accountable for it is like taking you can control your behavior in an ideal control. How effective the city is in terms of delivering services but you can control how you treat a customer and I saw that the other day when it happened I mean. Gotta make a BD allows them whatever odds to transfer. You but the I didn't want I didn't want a tourist. Potentially have the same in Iraq without conductor and go man this is their bad experiences a bad first impression for so my MIB from Chicago Philadelphia Los Angeles. Wherever come and visit the city and maybe is another country. That exact order of the site. As a representative of the city quote quote. In her body in Iraq where it can't I haven't got caught by street collector obvious people rush brought. Everywhere. If they have a bad experience with anyone goes. There are edited out current development production and ordered people in Schmidt told don't. Washington say oh man you wanna go to long ones we have a bad attitude. You don't know one the other number one question I get Murphy and you if I get it I'm sure you have done new revenue on regular and order area. Yet so. You buy get this too but when I go on the road my travels the saints and interact of people etc. in it and Tampa Bay or whenever Philadelphia our. And on New York pay it in New York surprisingly. Are other places Charlotte. And they find out more from the world isn't one of these they asked this inquisitive Lee all the time is on now I'm scared to go that city because of the crime and hear about these the you know the issues and crime here. And that's the number one question in the ass is is it safe and immediately respond yeah it's safe and certain pockets certain areas he knew where to go and where not to go but he gets saved it's no. It's no alarm. It's it it it's not as bad as as you know so my logic from afar so I'm well my my my were migrate a point there is that. Sometimes you know we as New Orleans have to be advocates for our city. It I'm where I work at our amid constant touch with. Dark tour people LaMont academy all low the world. And right it's bursting oh wicked go where's this where's that. All. You know is it a candidate say all we have to worry about the crime in India to sit there.
