High School for Recording Arts Portland

program date: 
Wed, 04/07/2010

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.

Power of the Peace Movement

program date: 
Mon, 03/29/2010

Activism has consequences.  The peace and anti-nukes movements of the '50s and beyond were the major reason nuclear weapons were never used in war after  1945, according to historian Lawrence Wittner.  In this interview, he talks with Clayton Morgareidge about his research showing the surprising influence of peace activism on governments.

program date: 
Thu, 03/25/2010

This fall, Portlanders will decide whether to continue their experiment with voter-owned elections. The question becomes more relevant in the wake of Citzens United vs. Federal Elections Commission, a recent Supreme Court ruling that removed bans on corporate campaign spending. This week, Jo Ann and Dave talk with Common Cause Oregon's Janice Thompson about the upcoming referendum on voter-owned elections and what else needs to be done to fix our ailing electoral process.
