Crosstown Conversations was conceived during recovery from Katrina to foster dialogue between neighborhoods that were pointing fingers at each other. Over the ensuing years we expanded our focus to help our audience to learn more about our creative community and economy, environmental, urban, and economic development issues. We are a news conversation show, and have had over 1000 guests. We publish a newsletter to advance the radio show that e-publishes the day before our show that has a loyal following among the 13,000 people who receive it. We love our audience at WBOK1230 AM, and believe “people are talking about us” and that we foster a growing dialogue to the benefit of our entire city.

Change Your Water


Pastor David M. Patin Sr.



Saturdays 2:00-2:30pm

For 31 years I have pastored The Way Christian Church in uptown New Orleans and am the owner, along with my wife, of  WH2OLE Water (your Alkaline water source). Recently I completed my certification as a Food Over Medicine Coach, Consultant and Instructor. It is with great passion and determination that I share simple solutions to everyday chronic illnesses to eliminate the need for medication.  Change your water to change your mind and eat all the medicine you can because they both go together to make us whole. So as the conversation continues, we’ll talk about proper hydration and how we can stop, reverse and prevent disease by choosing food over medicine.
