dissecting 'good hair'- the film

as the conversation on hair is continuous for us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!'; this week, we wanted to take the time to focus on the concept of 'good hair'- namely, the film.  amidst all of the positive reviews for the film, we wanted to see for ourselves how effective the message was in discussing the socio-political issues and connections regarding the so-called 'black hair industry'. 

overall, 'good hair' is healthy hair; is this something the film conveyed, or did it perpetuate notions of corporatism/colonialism?

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' are going to continue the vibe of the 'thanksgiving day soul fest' presented by shaheed and jay jay (from 12-8), by bringing a bunch of the funk!!! 

we don't always get to revel in the funk; so we like to get a chance to do so at least once a year.  it will be a treat for you, as much as it will be for us!  we'll be giving you the straight traditional funk (stanky, nasty, underarm odor funk!), as well as some funky gems in the realm of rock, jazz, boogaloo, and then some!!!

honoring OUR HEALTH, and HEAVY D!!!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' like to return towards discussion of the health of our communities once in a while...  with the high-profile verdict of the conrad murray trial- for those who are not aware, murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter in relation to the murder of our teacher michael- we felt it was a perfect time to return to this discussion.  since what we are seeing is beyond murray OR michael; we are curious to know if there will ever be a point where true justice will be served- that we return to WHOLISTIC ways of taking care of ourselves, and each other, as opposed to dependence on commercial/non-traditional pharmaceuticals and 'medicines'?

Short Description: 
dealing with loss, in positive ways...

loss... it encompasses so many things. the older we get, we notice that many of our friends and loved ones are transcending at more frequent rates. this is the sort of loss we tend to focus on. on a larger scale, through governmental policy more and more of us are beginning to acknowledge the loss of basic rights as well. with that, comes the devaluing of life of all forms.

what exactly are we doing to PROTECT AND PROMOTE LIFE? how are we engaging in the communities which already exist? when we lose our loved ones, do we simultaneously recognize what we have gained from their time with us? what are ways we can look at loss positively, despite many forces working against us?

david ornette cherry and the 'jazz idiom'

we will be flipping the script and speaking with a favourite of paula the small (of 'paula's picks')- david ornette cherry!  paula's emphasis on art and culture is a nice balance to our focus on the sociopolitical side of things.  with that, we are looking forward to looking at this full spectrum of mr. cherry, regarding his art.

the socio-political significance of michael jackson

most people who listen to or know us are aware that for us, michael jackson is represented as a teacher and significant socio-political figure.  in the second year of his transcendence, we still continue to honor him in this way, despite how lonely or frustrating the road increasingly becomes.

j.r. valrey

the people of world are speaking right now, in terms of their dis-satisfaction with their governments' actions of injustice; regarding spending cuts to provisions, police terrorism, and ever-increasing militarism.  now is the time we are faced with the all-important question:  what do we stand for?  if we claim it is justice, in what ways are we contributing to this?  how much are we willing to risk the (physical and non-physical) characteristics of comfort in order to get there?

is comfort an illusion?

interview with aphrodite jones

Categories:
program date: 
Tue, 08/26/2008

this is the interview that appeared on the 20 august episode of 'guess who's coming to radio??!! with aphrodite jones, author of the book 'michael jackson conspiracy'.  she has appeared on programs such as: america's most wanted, the CBS early show, geraldo at large, inside edition, montel wiliams, medical detectives and the o'reilly factor.

on 'michael jackson conspiracy' (from aphroditejones.com):

"In June 2005, when Aphrodite Jones made her last appearance on The O’Reilly Factor related to the Michael Jackson trial, she experienced a striking moment of clarity: 

"As I made one of my last public comments on the case,” she remembers, “I realized that I had become one of the media bunch who had predetermined the outcome of the trial, wrongly.  Many people around me were so sure of Jackson’s guilt.  Many reporters had slanted TV and radio coverage to suit the prosecution, and I was one of those folks who had followed that dangerous trend.”

Now, in a new book, Michael Jackson Conspiracy, Jones is setting the record straight.  Aphrodite Jones's most daring book ever examines the case against the world's No. 1 entertainer:  Michael Jackson

Inspired by Jones's courageous writing, Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., Jackson's high profile attorney, has written a powerful foreword for Michael Jackson Conspiracy.

Under the influence of media, the entire world has reached judgments about Jackson.  The mainstream media report about him with an implicit  judgment, while tabloid media write about him with an explicit judgment.  In the face of this barrage of judgment, the resulting perceptions about Jackson have become aligned -- against him.  It has become impossible for the public to reconcile its admiration for Jackson's genius musical and artistic talent with the harsh judgments against him.  As a result of these seemingly irreconcilable views, it has become easier to ignore the good and focus on the bad.

For years now, we have been duped into believing that there has been only one side to a coin.

With the kind of behind-the-scenes insights that you have come to expect from Aphrodite Jones, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will shock you.  Jones provides a fresh look at the man who has been at the center of so much success -- and controversy.

What emerges from Michael Jackson Conspiracy is an image of the vulnerability of the most powerful entertainer in the world. 

All of the myths you have been lead to believe will be shattered. 

Everything you have come to know about Jackson will be upturned after you read Michael Jackson Conspiracy.

A book which will forever influence the way trials are reported, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will also move you with emotion.  And it will help you complete the picture of the most fascinating entertainer in the world. "

and...  are armed police or guards a response to the school shootings, especially after all the video evidence of police abusing their power and physically abusing children who have been late to class or were deemed 'hyperactive'?

Chris (guest for 9-10-09)

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
