Tonght we focus on the High School for Recording Arts Portland

Imagine a high school where art, music and culture are natural components of education rather than stand alone subjects. Where community is unified through celebration of arts and artistic expression. A school where parents and students openly communicate with teachers because every voice is valued. Imagine teenage sons and daughters coming home from school filled with pride and self-confidence, showcasing their day’s accomplishments and looking forward to the next day. Imagine their excitement when working in an internship lead by an artist or businessperson they admire. Imagine talking about life after graduation as a conversation with limitless possibilities.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/30/10

Air date: 
Tue, 03/30/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at the Tea Party.

For a few generations now, White Guys in America have been hearing footsteps -- female and nonwhite footsteps advancing relentlessly on the White Guys' exclusive clubhouse. This sense of creeping white unease has manifested itself in various ways over the years -- Nixon-era "states' rights," Reagan's crusade against "welfare moms," anti-immigrationism, and on and on -- and been skillfully exploited by leaders on the religious and political right.

Recent events, though, have thrown the White Guys into a full-blown, potentially violent panic. It began when Barack Obama's election appeared imminent, and reached a head with the passage of health care reform legislation. And this panic has a name -- the Tea Party.

 So what's it really about? And what if they took over? Blogger Chip Ward from TomDispatch.com joins Abe and Joe for a closer look at what's eating at the Tea Partiers, and postulate on what the world would be like were the Tea Party to gain ascendancy.

Obama's Disappointing Education Policy

Categories:
program date: 
Mon, 03/29/2010

Educator and activist Stan Karp talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about how the administration’s education policies are, in spite of Obama’s campaign promises, just a continuation of worst parts of the Bush administration’s No Child Left Behind program -- a program of test and punish.  Karp writes frequently for Rethinking Schools as their expert on federal education policy.

Interviews and New Tracks from ELIOT LIPP

 

Eliot Lipp didn’t choose to become one of the most looked to artists in contemporary electronic music, but somehow, Lipp’s sound, one that uses vintage gear to create a unique take on Hip Hop and House, has quickly garnered the respect among the industry’s most influential musicians and producers as well as the deep admiration among audiences worldwide.

Since being discovered by Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) in the mid 2000’s, and releasing albums on the cutting edge labels Eastern Developments, Mush and Hefty as well as backing the hype with a relentless touring schedule of influential live shows all over the globe, Lipp has quickly become one of the barometers for the revival of electronic music in the States.
