"A million doors for peace" was an event that took place this past weekend around the country, in which peace activists aimed to knock on one million doors as a peace action.

The aim of the weekend event was to get a million signatures for a petition calling on Congress to bring the troops home from Iraq, a goal that organizers say they surpassed.

Stepmother: A Future Giant

program date: 
Wed, 09/24/2008

Combining vocals and looping devices, he blends sounds with subtleties quite uncommon to young "noise" players who are so wont to blast walls of mish mashed overdrive to a reluctant audience. This fellow has no such issues and his music reflects the intellectual and humble character he brings to the neighborhood of St. Johns.

Currently, StepMother is sowing his wild oats travelling the world, but we eagerly await his return so that we can continue pushing him toward his destiny as a prosperous sonic artist.
