The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #87/There's Something Curious About This Broadcast, Segment 1

3 months ago
Hey welcome to the Sonic Café, where we feature an intelligent, eclectic mix of headphone friendly music, comedy and pop culture. I’m your host Scott Clark and this is episode 87. This time the Sonic Café presents a music mix that spans 36 years. Listen for Ohm-G, Phil Collins, Pink Floyd, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, even a Mondo Grosso Next Wave remix of an Archie Shepp tune, plus of course more. Then listen for stand-up comedy as the Sonic Café presents UK funny man Jimmy Carr, captured from Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Plus, Uncle Lar and Lil Tommy read a few ads pulled directly from the classified section of your hometown newspaper… and just for fun, even sing a medley of Ray Charles tunes. Wow. What could be better that that, right? All this time, from that little café on the Pacific coast, that never sleeps, and always serves up the full menu. We’re the Sonic Café.

Sea Change Radio: Paul Ehrlich on Jaws, Segment 1

3 months ago
Did you know that 300 years ago people had larger jaws? Why would this be the case and why is it important? Paul Ehrlich, the founding father of modern population sciences, is here to talk about his new book which is a bit of a diversion from his usual work warning us to not have too many kids. This time, Ehrlich, along with co-author and orthodontist Sandra Kahn, explore the links between jaw size and an increased risk of heart disease, cancer, sleep apnea and hyperactivity. Today, Ehrlich discusses the evolutionary biology of jaws and talks about what people can do to reverse what he calls a “hidden epidemic.”

TUC Radio: The Life and Times of Utah Phillips (TWO of TWO) Archive - updated, Segment 2

3 months ago
From the archives of TUC Radio - this is a celebration of his life and an account, in his own words, of how he became an activist. In this Part TWO Utah talked about founding the Poor People's Party, working with the Mormon Church, the Black Panthers and Judi Bari, and how he became involved with the Singer Songwriters movement. He closed with moving, enduring advice on how to work and organize together. In the early-1960s, Phillips was involved with Fair Play for Cuba and the struggle for open housing laws in Utah. In 1968, he was nominated and campaigned for the U.S. Senate on the Peace and Freedom ticket. The experience led to Phillips being dismissed from his job with the Utah State Archives. Following the election, Phillips remained in Utah for a year, working for the Migrant Council and living on a cot in the back of a big warehouse called "The Cosmic Airplane". Encouraged by friends, including folk singer Rosalie Sorrels, to try his hand at performing, Phillips moved to the East Coast in 1969. He settled, for several years, in Sarasota Springs, New York, where he became a regular performer at Cafe Lena. Phillips was a proud member of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW or Wobblies). His view of unions and politics were shaped by his parents, especially his Mom who was a labor organizer for the CIO. But Phillips was more of a Christian Anarchist and a pacifist, so found the modern-day Wobblies to be the perfect fit for him, an iconoclast and artist. At the end of his life Phillips lived in Nevada City, California where he hosted a weekly, one-hour, radio show, Loafer's Glory: The Hobo Jungle of the Mind. The Hospitality House that he co-founded still shelters the Homeless. The folk singer, labor organizer, storyteller, activist and poet Utah Phillips was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 15, 1935, he died in Nevada City, CA, on May 23, 2008. Utah Phillips came to the Unitarian Fellowship Hall in Berkeley on May 18, 2004, to talk about his life. Recorded by Maria Gilardin.

3 months ago
Sut Jhally, is a professor in the Communication Department at UMass, Amherst. His interests include advertising and consumer culture, and the intersection of ideology, consciousness, and politics. He is the founder of the Media Education Foundation (mediaed.org) and speaks about how it came to be, Professor Dallas Smythe, his influence on himself as a graduate student and the political economy of communications, the blindspots of Marxist analysis, and the commodification of the audience in the reproduction of capital in monopoly capitalist consumer culture, now globalized through neoliberalism. He tells, for the first time publicly, how MTV unintentionally provided the means to launch MEF and how academic independence required him to make the choice to do so.
