KWMU: Live From Iraq



Not to dampen the spirit o’ the Hannukah/Christmas/Festivus, but the war in Iraq carries on, and a slew of St. Louisans with the U.S. Army’s 10th Psychological Operations Battalion recently arrived in the Fertile Crescent -- with KWMU (90.7 FM) rising-star reporter Adam Allington in tow.


Alligton has already filed five reports from Iraq. So far you can hear him interview company commander Captain Cesar Milan, a lawyer and resident of Soulard, on the mission, describe taking a seat in Saddam Hussein’s former “formal chair” and discover the price to be paid for the accidental loss of a sheep, a cow, or a human life.
