Good morning Acadiana. Y'all ready for a fantastic weekend? The weather is going to be awesome. KTDY is starting off the weekend with the world-famous Polyester Power Hour. Today we are saluting the medical professionals here in Acadiana and around the world by spotlighting the 80s all morning long. The 80s decade was recently voted 'favorite decade of music' by medical professionals working in the United States.

In addition, Jenn from Nothing Bundt Cakes will be delivering cakes to frontliners today. As a bonus, she will also give our chosen frontliners gift cards for a massage at Spa Mizan in Lafayette. Nominate an essential worker here.
