Being Who You Are...

Air date: 
Thu, 06/25/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Don't be afraid...
The 25th of June is the day Michael Jackson transcended, six years ago...  It was only THIS YEAR where we finally came to terms with his not being here.  Since we do have a show specifically dedicated to him (in August), we won't have the whole show dedicated to him; however, we do want to honor his spirit, in terms of his being proud/unapologetic for who he was.  With that, people around the world are also honoring their friends, families and loved ones who are part of the LGTBQ communities.  While the commercialism/capitalistic aspect of what is known as 'pride' is emphasized; if it were not for a Puerto Rican trans woman named Sylvia Rivera, and an African trans woman named Marsha P.

A conversation with Errick Lewis...

Air date: 
Thu, 06/11/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
"Where Musician Ends and Instrument Begins..."
We've been thinking a lot lately about the state of jazz in this day and age...  So much emphasis and conversation from the mainstream has been on the genre in and of itself, and not the conditions which created jazz...  not the African or spiritual connections (and homage to the ancestors) which weaved in and out of it.

This connection never left, and jazz messengers (respect to Abdullah Ibn Buhaina and Horace Silver) still exist amongst us, continuing the tradition.  Robert Glasper,  Regina Carter, Jaleel Shaw and Madlib are just a few. 

A Conversation with Ron Herndon

Air date: 
Thu, 05/28/2015 - 8:00pm
Short Description: 
Education...
Ron Herndon's experiences with the educational system in Portland, Oregon are well known to those who have been following him.  He has consistently organized against educational injustice and disparities done to African youth.  He had a direct hand in getting Reed College to establish a Black studies program.  With the Black United Front (local chapter), he called for equality in education, focusing on schools such as Harriet Tubman Middle School.

Short Description: 
'the man who wrote 'thriller'...'
For this year's Spring membership drive, we are once again focusing on a songwriter whose name may be somewhat familiar to you- but you DO know his songs!!!  Rod Temperton is mostly known as the man who wrote 'Thriller' (as well as 'Off the Wall').  Prior to this period he will forever be associated with, he was a member of the group Heatwave.  Not only did he compose songs for Michael's first two albums as an adult; he also wrote for  Rufus and Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, Jeffrey Osborne, Patti Austin, Stephanie Mills, George Benson, and many others!!!

Short Description: 
all about the little ones...
We always love having Mama Shafia Monroe as a guest on 'guess who's coming to radio??!!'- she always brings it back to that nurturing, warm spirit.  As the founder of the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC); her work as an international educator, midwife and advocate inspires all those she encounters.

Selma, the 'New Black' and the question of freedom

Air date: 
Thu, 03/26/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
MORE conversations about language...
The conversation about language is not letting up this month...  We chose to discussed these past few weeks how language can be used as a tool to engage communities in organization and activism; this week, we will take a look at how language is used to distract, divide and confuse.  Specifically, we will be examining the most recent incarnation of the 'New Black' ideology, and the works which have been produced from it.

A Continuation of the Importance of Language... With Mic Crenshaw!

Air date: 
Thu, 03/12/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Hip Hop, Mic and Mama C...
We want to make this episode of 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' a continuation of the last one, focusing on words.  it is extremely crucial in this time, as corporate media continues to marginalize people of African descent, under the pretence of 'freedom'. under this pretence, our cultures consistently are appropriated and mishandled (and packaged as a product), outside the original context. There's also the lack of awareness (which we wanted to cover last time as well) in the use of words such as 'borrow' (as in, 'Can i borrow you?'), when using those words to address others.  So much of the language we use towards each other innocuously has roots in the commodification of the human body. 

The Importance Of Language... in the spirit of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and W.E.B. DuBois

Air date: 
Thu, 02/26/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Think about what you say...
As people around the world have been honoring the sunrise of W.E.B. Dubois (February 23, 1868) and the transcendence of El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (February 21, 1965); it seems of great importance to discuss the nature of language.  Both men have been highly misinterpreted (and neglected) over the years, without actually taking a keen study to what they were actually saying.

a conversation with andy allo!!!

Categories:
program date: 
Thu, 11/14/2013
we spoke with andy allo, currently a member of the new power generation (headed by prince); however, she has recently released a second album, entitled 'superconductor'.  for more information check out http://alloevolution.com.  we thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with her (which was about everything from the nature of true learning, hair, music and consciousness, and more), and we hope you will as well.

om friday the 15th she will be performing at the camilia lounge. 

a conversation with royce lovett

program date: 
Wed, 10/30/2013
royce lovett will be in portland (at the camilia lounge) on the 2nd of november; we had a chance to briefly speak with him about what inspired him, as well as his life's philosophies. 

lovett, who emerges from florida is indeed refreshing amongst a generation and era of people who make music and art playing with negative imagery or a lower consciousness.  according to his site (http://roycelovett.com/), he:

"says that his music is all about “letting my beliefs shine through my message and talking about real issues.”  In his own words, his goal of his music is to “tap into the intellect and inspire change, because music doesn’t change people. People change people.” Royce says his music conveys a positive, upbeat image that anyone who loves music can appreciate. He writes his own songs and they feature a wide variety of topics, but mostly on love “in all forms, from friendly love, love for your brother, or romantic love.”"
 

here are a few of his songs/past performances:

a conversation with leni stern

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 10/30/2013
we had a chance to speak with leni stern, who will be in portland at the camilia lounge on the 1st of november, 2013.  ms. stern is currently a resident of new york city, by way of munich, germany.  her music is inspired by the mother continent so much that she made a life-changing decision to travel there, and ended up working with the great elders, such as salif keita and baba maal.

from http://www.lenistern.com/

"Five consecutive wins of Gibson’s Female Jazz Guitarist of the Year might make anyone hunker down and focus on going ‘six for six’.  But Leni Stern has always defied expectations, and her diverse, 20-year career in music is a textbook example of growth under a self-imposed fire. From the expert instrumentalist, a singer-songwriter emerged, with observations to share from her travels throughout the world.   Stern adds: “Why deny the impulse to put words to these experiences?  I couldn’t think of a reason.”"

here are a few of her experiences and works:

an interview/conversation with randall sullivan, author of 'untouchable'

Categories:
program date: 
Thu, 11/29/2012

here is the full interview we did with randall sullivan, author of untouchable: the strange life and tragic death of michael jackson.  sullivan is also the author of the price of experience and the miracle detective. he was an editor at rolling stone magazine for over 20 years.

how i view michael certainly appears to be different than how mr. sullivan views him (i mean, he is my teacher!  everyone who knows me already knows my perspective).  however, i cannot take away whatever experience he has had, because it's his. i consider my experience with mr. sullivan to have been quite positive and educational.

enjoy!

kickstarting the continual love of vinyl: a conversation with eilon paz of dust & grooves

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 07/18/2012

i grew up on vinyl since i was in my mother's womb...  when i became conscious of what the physical format of vinyl actually was, i recognized that this medium which stored sounds was a healing mechanism- it was used to calm the soul after a fight, or just to recapture memories. 

i used to purchase music on my own all the time, but it wasn't until i was 15 years old when i truly started seriously COLLECTING vinyl.  some time after this initial point my first musical teacher (after my mother) was a man named pat. longo; he was quite patient with me as i sat wide-eyed and eager, simply listening to him share information and histories of different record labels.  he'd wax poetic on the mechanisms of certain producers, arrangers and artists.  it was the first time i had actually heard someone speak in depth about the SCIENCE of music- i was hooked for life.  he'd put that needle on the first track and INSTANTLY knew what i liked.  the shop he worked at (owned by the inimitable robert cohen), finyl vinyl, was filled with internationally known producers and DJs, as well as long-time music enthusiasts. i will always love and honor him for teaching me and making me feel welcome in this world- and we are still friends today, after almost 20 years. 

in 2009, pat. was featured in a site called called dust and grooves, dedicated to featuring vinyl enthusiasts and collectors.    he introduced me to the 'curator' of the site, eilon paz, who has started a kickstarter page to raise money for a book he is self-publishing.  paz describes himself as having:

"moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2008 after having a successful career as a photographer in Israel. I decided to move to NY to evolve, expand, and progress as a professional photographer. As a working photographer, I was always on the look out for personal projects to nourish my creativity, and since I’m primarily a portrait photographer, I was looking for a subject matter that will fulfill my passion for photography and music. I was always collecting records, but back home it was very limited. When I arrived to NY suddenly the sky was the limit. People were digging for vinyl records everywhere. It suddenly made sense that there is a whole scene here that could and should be documented. This gave me a whole new inspiration for a personal project."

as a person who is a collector of vinyl (who is obsessed with looking at others' collections), as well as a person who has majored in photograhy (i studied under the great jazz photographer roy decarava); paz' project is something which intrigues me.  it was definitely a pleasure to speak with him, as it's easy to feel the passion in which he feels for his work. 

take a listen, watch and enjoy.  and check out what the kickstarter project (which ends 10 august 1012) entails, as well as paz' dust and grooves site.

honoring the teacher coast to coast- a conversation with moses harper, part 1

Categories:
program date: 
Thu, 03/22/2012

i have had another fortunate experience to have experienced another- i'll just say it- student of michael...  it's a very lonely place out there for people who are truly serious about studying the teacher.  even though my focus has more to do with michael OUTSIDE of performance; whenever i see others who have a keen intrerest in what the teachings mean, i feel compelled to contact them.

moses harper is such a person.  when i saw her dancing (she won the apollo over, and if you know anything about the apollo, then you know that it's a tough crowd), i saw there was an element to her that i rarely, if ever, see in others who dedicate their lives to 'michaeldance'- she put HERSELF in it.  with that, i knew there was more to her than just michael.  you see, to be a student of michael, it's important to be a well-rounded person.  i say this because the teachings go far beyond michael's physical casing.  he just happened to be here on earth, and was one of the few who truly embodied the teachings.  we all have the ability to, but many of us are scared. 

what are the teachings?  moses and i discuss some of the elements of the teachings...  the basis of our conversation has to do with michael; we also speak on sociopolitical issues, art and culture.

who is moses harper?  moses has dedicated her life to the teachings, not only through dance, but through speaking engagements, working with the youth, poetry, hip hop and film production and direction.  she has a BA in music (majoring in studio composition) from SUNY purchase; and is involved with 'thrill the world NYC' (you know, the event had all around the world annually, where thousands of people do the 'thriller' dance all at once).  she is the director of a film called 'love fit to box', a story following a journey of two siblings: a brother and a sister (who has made the decision to tell her family she was gay).  the brother looks within himself to see things from his sister's perspective. 

he decided to look at 'the man in the mirror'.  you see?  the teachings are everywhere. 

for more information on moses harper, or to contact her, you can find her here:

i first saw this incredibly beautiful woman on youtube, speaking of health, inside and out, and connecting it with the womb.  nubia sutton was her name, and instantly i felt compelled to connect with her.  how often does one feel compelled to connect with someone they see on a video?  i don't know the answer to that (besides energy); i know for me, it is very rare.  i am completely fortunate that i did make that decision to make the steps to reach her.  when we spoke, immediately we connected- not only due to our both growing up in brooklyn, new york; but also in our desire to seek truth through learning and sharing information and pro-activity. 

in this conversation we speak on herbs and medicines, self-healing, food/diet, spirituality and religion, connection to the ancestors, hair, and more! 

here are a few of her videos:

Hi Jamilah,
Loved the show tonight - I was really struck by Chris' story and how ridiculously the Portland police handled his situation.  It makes me concerned for the future of civic-minded organizations like Copwatch and NoPo Cop Stop which exist to do exactly what Chris was doing - observe & record police conduct and provide that record as a defense to the people who police accuse of wrongdoing. 

Would it be possible for KBOO to post tonight's show or, at least, the fifteen minutes that Chris spoke about his encounter with Portland police on your webpage or myspace page?  I would be very interested to listen to it again and pass it along to my friends at Copwatch, if that is okay.  I believe the segment ranged between 8:45 pm - 9:00 pm.  Please feel free to e-mail me with a response - it would be great to hear from you.  Thank you very much for your help, and keep up the excellent work!

motown

Hey I love motown and motown history and it is sorta at the top of my list of interests right now, so if I wanted to offer some insight into your upcoming program, what is the protocol? Is there any way to get involved?

motown

yes, i am actually planning to do another show on motown; i didn't get to fit everything i wanted to fit into the show... my plan is to do something in april. i would like to go more in depth about what i was touching on in the last show... is it possible for a 'person of colour' to be successful in america and not sacrifice or compromise their beliefs? i want to do more in-depth conversations/interviews about that.

i am constantly welcoming people to get involved and have some input for the show, so that is wonderful that you are interested!!! what sorts of things were you thinking about?

speak soon,
peace,
jamilah
