Featured Song Sample:
DESE ARE SOME EXPRESSIONS DAT WE HEAR EVERY DAY
NOW DON’T GET ME WRONG

TEENAGERS, YOUNG ADULTS, AND OLDER
WELL….I CAN GO ON LIKE DIS FOR SEASONS
CAUSE I’M DR. REITER
Song History / Background:
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY: Dr. Levi Reiter, head of Hofstra University's audiology program and professor of speech-language-hearing sciences*, was simply trying promote the audiology profession when he composed a rap song for freshman orientation and for his first day of classes in 2005.
However, this rapping grandfather of 17 was unprepared for the "props" he received soon thereafter from students, colleagues and even the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA). In fact ASHA, the national association for speech pathologists and audiologists, is using Dr. Reiter's rap, titled "Say Whut?" in an ambitious program designed to recruit undergraduates across the country for careers in audiology.
"It's a great icebreaker," said Dr. Reiter, a Chassidic Jew who also has a thriving audiology practice in Brooklyn. After initial positive feedback, Dr. Reiter recorded "Say Whut?" in a professional studio with full instrumental backup. However, Dr. Reiter is not thinking about Grammys or Billboard rankings. Getting students to consider a profession in the hearing sciences is reward enough for him.
*Dr. Reiter is also on the faculty council of the Long Island AuD Consortium.
