health and self-sufficiency...

the invasion of libya by the u.s. and other western nations has got us thinking again about what defines self-sufficiency.  on what terms can any non-western nation have it without western influence?  why do we in the west insist that other nations wish to have our kind of democracy, when we ourselves do not own it in its purest form?  can a nation which is unhealthy work to fix others?

a tribute to BARRY LEROY HAMPTON, a treasure of portland

a dear friend to us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!'- as well as a significant population in portland- BARRY LEROY HAMPTON- transcended last week.  while we are still reeling from the transition of our teacher michael, barry's sudden transition has made the healing harder as well, since barry was our rock.  both our teacher and rock are physically no longer here.  with that, the times and conversations we shared together will always be cherished.

...in honor of TEENA MARIE...

the goal of 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' is to address the sociopolitical issues pertaining to the interests and lives of people of african descent (also known as 'black people'); with this, we exclusively play music composed, produced, arranged and/or performed by those whose ethnicity represents this. 

on the 14th of january we will be honoring one whose exterior may not exemplify this; however, TEENA MARIE's art honored our ancestors and peers in a way few primarily of european descent ever did.  sadly, teena marie physically departed from this earthly plane on 26 december 2010.  though she is definitely in a better place (as is our teacher michael), she will be missed here.

a review/overview of the constitution!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' feel it's high time for a little lesson about a word consistently credited by some individuals, but never actually utilized by said people- the constitution.  in light of all this wikileaks business (and yes, in light of the manufactured controversy surrounding our teacher michael jackson's album release, as well as his legacy) we find it imperative to discuss the MANUFACTURING OF DECEPTION (and the will of the people to be deceived) in relation to the violations of the basic tenets of the constitution. 

do these amendments mean anything anymore, and did they EVER mean anything?  join us in the discussion, and call 503 231 8187!  we encourage constructive and pro-active dialog!

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
