Rise when the Rooster Crows on 03/08/12

Air date: 
Thu, 03/08/2012 - 5:30am - 7:00am
Short Description: 
Women rock your soul this International Women's Day, representing indigenous & traditional musics

We'll be getting up even before the hens start a layin' to bring you an especially crunchy Rise when the Rooster Crows. I've been delving into aboriginal, indigenous, and traditional catalogs looking for the right blend to rev up your morning.

Don't be afeared -- we'll still have that traditional music you have come to expect between 5:30 and 7 am -- but maybe we can do a bit of offroading in honor of International Women's Day.

A Different Nature
Air date: 
Mon, 02/20/2012 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 

Tonight we explore the music of one of the unsung heros of electronic music, British composer Daphne Oram. She worked at the BBC in the late 1950s where she co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and became its first Studio Manager. A year later she resigned from the workshop, being unhappy with BBC's music department's lack of interest in the more experimental music that was beginning to be created in Europe and abroad. Instead she designed her own  Oramics Studios for Electronic Composition, and produced a far wider range of music than the Radiophonic Workshop.

Poetry across Borders! Tonight on Paula's Picks!

POETRY. The word causes some to run and hide, while fewer and fewer seem to connect with its meaning.

Portland, Oregon. Poets William Stafford, Lawson Inada & Paulann Petersen proved that words lived and flowed, as natural and native as rivers and forests.
