In this week's DJ Sessions, we spoke with KCRW's Raul Campos about "southern fried soul" from Texas and a dance duo from Los Angeles.
In case you missed it, the National Hockey League was supposed to start its regular season on Oct. 11, but due to a labor dispute, 82 games have already been canceled and more cancellations are likely if a deal isn’t reached soon.
Contract talks resume today in Toronto. At issue is how to split revenues generated by the games. The players’ union has put forward a five-year deal that would see their share in revenue fall from roughly 54 percent to 52 percent during the contract.

Throughout the week, Here & Now is looking at the impact a raise in the minimum wage would have on states, the federal government and workers.
