Old Mole Variety Hour on 06/16/08
The Old Mole today, hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, features the music of local avant-pop band Iretsu and an interview with its members (Ryan Cross, Glen Schiedt and Joel Holly). Bill Resnick will interview radical economist Arthur MacEwan about McCain, Obama, and the economy. Larry Bowlden will reflect on on religious fundamentalism and Jon Krakauer's book Under The Banner of Heaven. All this plus the Movie Moles' take on a movie classic now out on DVD. Killer of Sheep examines the black Los Angeles ghetto of Watts in the mid-1970s through the eyes of Stan, a sensitive dreamer who is growing detached and numb from the psychic toll of working at a slaughterhouse.
