In connection with the latest SouthBound episode -- an interview with Josh Burford, Southern LGBTQ historian -- we present a collection of music from LGBTQ artists from the South. I had a lot of fun -- and learned a lot -- making this one. For a deep historical dive on LGBTQ music of all kinds, make sure to check out JD Doyle's work at http://www.queermusicheritage.com. We'll do new playlists on off weeks between SouthBound episodes, which you can subscribe to on iTunes, Stitcher and NPR One.
Maybe you remember Charlotte’s LGBT history exhibit from a few years ago. The project from UNC Charlotte was the brainchild of Joshua Burford, an LGBT historian and professor at the university. The exhibit detailed the lives and activism of LGBT people in Charlotte dating back to the 1940s. At the end of this month, Burford will be leaving Charlotte to return to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he grew up. This week, he’s the guest on WFAE’s SouthBound podcast with host Tommy Tomlinson.
Editor’s note: With the all-SEC national championship game set for Monday in Atlanta, we asked two prominent Southern writers—and unabashed fans—for their take on the big game. See Monte Burke’s essay about Alabama here. I jumped straight out of my chair—my highest vertical leap since I was a teenager, a good solid three or four inches.
@MatthewTeague My first thought was "how did he get all that stuff?" And then I forgot he was a millionaire rock star and could probably get ahold of anything. But I'll be interested to see if there's a follow-up about his dealers...
My mom, who's 85, is prescribed a fentanyl patch for pain. It makes her life so much better -- under the careful watch of doctors and nurses. We've seen up close how powerful opioids can be, and how seductive ... and how easy it would be to go too far. http://www.tompetty.com/statement
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
