Almost two weeks after the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, protesters are still flooding the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, each night to air their grievances.

One St. Louis radio personality turned off the music and gave residents the opportunity to voice their concerns over the Hot 104.1 and Old School 95.5 radio airwaves.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks to Jowcol “Boogie D” Dolby about why he decided to open the phone lines and airwaves to the people of St. Louis and the surrounding area.
