Hosted by: Kathleen Stephenson

Toni Tabora-Roberts interviews Curtis Choy about his film "Manilatown is in the Heart".  A favorite at the DisOrient film festival in April, the film is a tribute to late poet and activist Al Robles. 

In the 1970s, Robles was an activist involved in the San Francisco I-Hotel struggle, a fight which is now burned into Filipino-American civil rights history.

After a decade-long protest, many low-income elderly Manong were evicted, effectively dismantling the last enclave of downtown San Francisco's historic Manilatown community.

Viva Voce play live on Drinking From Puddles !!
Wednesday, June 24th - 8pm-11pm

"At this spring's SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, Viva Voce frontman Kevin Robinson surveyed the dense crowd before him with a smirk on his face. "Are y'all blogging this (show)?" he asked, noting the army of texters staring into their devices as the band took a break between songs. "It's like you're guests in my kitchen and I'm the chef: I just want you to eat the food!" This old-school passion for the music, and nothing but, touches every aspect of the fourth full-length album from the husband-and-wife team of Robinson and singer/guitarist Anita Robinson.
