Strange and Rare Birds: Ralph Steadman & Ceri Levy

From the series Sea Change Radio host Alex Wise interviews Ceri Levy and Ralph Steadman. Confronted with the topic of extinct birds, filmmaker and author Ceri Levy took an unorthodox route to raising awareness. He enlisted the irreverent and intoxicating painter, Ralph Steadman, who's most famous as the partner-in-crime and illustrator for legendary gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson.

Levy and Steadman embarked on the project, Extinct Boids, and created a coffee table book that documents in colorful hilarity many species of birds that have ceased to exist on the earth, as well as some that only ever existed in the recesses of Steadman's unrestrained mind. A portion of the proceeds of the book go to supporting wildlife preservation through BirdLife International.

Josh Harper of the SHAC 7

KBOO's Jenka Soderberg speaks with former political prisoner Josh Harper, who spent three years in prison with 'terrorism' charges for giving a speech in which he explained how to send faxes of black paper to try to waste toner.

Harper is one of the SHAC 7 --  6 animal rights activists and the organization Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA) who were convicted on March 2, 2006, under the controversial Federal Animal Enterprise Protection Act. The Act punishes anyone who "physically disrupts" an animal enterprise. The charges stem from these activists' alleged participation in an international campaign to close the notorious product testing lab Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Community Artistry and Struggle

After the Watts riot of 1965 struck Los Angeles and the rest of the country, the Watts Writer's Workshop was created out of its smoldering ashes. It was here that writers such as Quincy Trouppe, Herbert Simmons, Eric Priestly and the poetry group known as The Watts Prophets hit the scene.

The Watts Prophets projected a raw, unflinching and brutally honest voice for their community. This group made up of artists Otis O'Solomom, Richard Dedeaux and Father Amde Hamilton, have been credited as the fathers of West Coast Rap. They have influenced and been sampled by hundreds of artists in the Hip Hop world such as DJ Quick, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog and DJ Shadow.

KBOO's Between the Covers reporter Jennifer Kemp and guest reporter Desmond Fuller interviewed So Much Pretty author Cara Hoffman. So Much Pretty is a harrowing, provakative and exhilerating recent novel dealing with small town politics and personal and societal accountability. Hoffman takes the reader to a faltering town in upstate New York where an ambitious Cleveland journalist, a family of DIY countercultural New Yorkers and their fierce and imaginative daughter, and members of the town's industrial agricultural elite all become entangled in the murder of a young, local woman, Wendy White. So Much Pretty is told from the vantage points of multiple characters, jumping back and forth in time, finally arriving at a startling conclusion. A murder mystery on the surface, So Much Pretty delves much deeper into issues of linguistic integrity, economics, rural and urban mentalities, the secret wonders and childhood, environmental degredation and sexual violence.

The Oregon Food Bank: Ending Hunger Through Dedication and Innovation

KBOO volunteers recently visited the Oregon Food Bank distribution center in North Portland to find out more about their efforts to end hunger. Food bank staff gave a guided tour of some facility highlights including the teaching gardens, the chicken coop, and demonstration kitchens. Volunteers contribute thousands of hours to support Food Bank activities, some of which are highlighted during the tour.

Food Bank projects highlighted in this program include:
Plant a Row for the Hungry
Learning Gardens
Community FEAST | Building Food Security
 
One of the Food Bank's many projects is The Waterfront Blues Festival which celebrates its twenty fifth anniversary this year beginning next Wednesday afternoon in downtown Portland. (KBOO will be broadcasting from the Blues Festival live). The festival is the largest fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank and 100 percent of gate donations and ticket sales directly benefit the Food Bank.

The five-day festival features Charlie Musselwhite, Galactic and the Steve Miller Band to name a few of the national acts highlighting this year’s events. Concert goers are asked to donate two cans of food and ten dollars to see an entire day’s lineup at the Blues Fest.

The Oregon Food Bank’s mission is to eliminate hunger and its root causes, because no one should be hungry. Since 1982, Oregon Food Bank has led the fight against hunger in Oregon and southwest Washington by collecting and distributing food through its regional network of neighborhood food pantries and regional food banks.

The Oregon Food Bank Network helps nearly one in five households fend off hunger. The Food Bank also leads statewide efforts to increase resources for hungry families and to eliminate the root causes of hunger through advocacy, nutrition education, garden education and helping communities strengthen local food systems.

********

Important information from the Oregon Food Bank website:

“As a result of growing levels of long-term unemployment, 260,000 people per month eat meals from emergency food boxes. Of those, 85,800 are children. For the first time ever, Oregon Food Bank distributed more than 1 million emergency food boxes in fiscal year 2010-11.”

“Growing levels of long-term unemployment have forced more and more people to seek emergency food assistance. 28 percent of adult emergency food box recipients are unemployed and looking for work, compared to only 20 percent in 2008.”

“A basic family budget — enough to cover the essential needs for a family of four — was $45,274 in 2007, while a full time job at Oregon's 2010 minimum wage provided only $17,500.”
