(Thanks AVH)
I've attached the Ground audio.

Listened to the approach and landing from Tower and nothing out of the ordinary.
Next arrival called it in, FOD from the previous landing, SWA1721 was notified on Ground.

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, registration N791SW performing flight WN-1721 from Orlando,FL to St. Louis,MO (USA), landed on St. Louis' runway 11 but dropped a cowling. The aircraft slowed safely and taxied to the apron.

The FAA reported: "AIRCRAFT ON LANDING AND COWLING CAME OFF, ST LOUIS, MO."

The aircraft is still on the ground in St. Louis about 80 hours after landing.
