The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 01/25/11

Air date: 
Tue, 01/25/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
America's oil habit is draining the Alberta Tar Sands.

 The oil contained in the Alberta Tar Sands is the dirtiest on Earth. Open pit mines bloom in the Canadian north, swallowing forest and tundra. It takes roughly five barrels of water and one of natural gas to extract one barrel of crude from the sticky sands. So naturally, it's a great idea to build a pipeline to pump it to Texas.

Abe and Joe examine this latest folly in the endless quest for petroleum, as well as ways we can begin to wean ourselves from our petroleum habit.

Forward is not just a direction, it's a way of life for Colorado based producer Alex B who is rolling out big tunes under the new guise of Paper Diamond. The new project finds the trusted producer moving into previously untraveled musical territory. The Paper Diamond sound has raw energy and the kind of dramatic anticipation only a seasoned producer can incite. Driving beats and bass grab on tight while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. One thing is for sure. The energy is high.
