Short Description: 
we need solutions NOW!!!

as most people who listen to us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' know, we do our best to keep it positive, and present solutions to issues facing us in this day and age.  people and situations keep working to stray us away from that- but we are on a mission to speak AND ACT TRUTH to the assumed powers.  those who are in these positions continuously utilize media and the 'educational' instutions to maintain war- between generations, between sexes, between cultures...  we have to work harder to expose this emotional, intellectual and spiritual dysfunction.

AMBER STARKS RETURNS!!!

we want to give a live and direct acknowledgement to AMBER STARKS for being at the forefront of the fight to get those who create and sign the laws to acknowledge hair that does not fall into the 'straight' category.  with amber's hard work (and some assistance) house bill 3409 was passed unanimously, easing restrictions on braiding, locs and other predominately afrikan styles for hair.  while this is great news, there's still more work to do- not only on the legislative level, but also on bringing awareness to the fact that coilier textures have different needs than straighter textures...  and we need to come to acceptance of our OWN textures- this is just as much work as trying to pass a bill.

more... on summer! and more...

with the continuation of our summer theme, we want to acknowledge how summer can sometimes prompt contentious moments.  throughout all this also come moments of enlightenment and community building, by people who think and act outside of societal expectations of 'going along to get along.'  in order to truly succeed, you cannot be moticated by fear- and you MUST be motivated by love.

Short Description: 
the life of lyfe stile... and the music of summer!

with everything going on right now in the name of promoting complicit mass slavery, independent media is extremely necessary at this point.  not only must it be independent; it must also have a goal of freedom.  we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' do our best to bring you not only a perspective of current events and news that is often not discussed regarding the larger picture; we also aim to bring you individuals from different life experiences and points of view who also work in some capacity against slavery- mental AND physical. 

this week, we will be speaking with one of those individuals- lyfe stile, a st. louis, mo-based hip hop emcee.  lyfe:

- formed plan-b with nato caliph around 2003 released 'eye of the storm/here today' in 2003

Short Description: 
continuing our mission...

we've had a few weeks to think about our place in the world- what is our role, in terms of doing this show, and in the world.  and we realized that we are presenting points of view and art that works against the very fabric of the cloth which blankets us in colonizing language and mindsets.  we're not trying to pat ourselves on the back; however, there's a point where you have to acknowledge with confidence that what you are doing is a needed resource, and the goal is to pass this on to as many people as possible- keeping it to yourself and/or only 'preaching to the choir' does not effect the goal of true change.

interview with aphrodite jones

Categories:
program date: 
Tue, 08/26/2008

this is the interview that appeared on the 20 august episode of 'guess who's coming to radio??!! with aphrodite jones, author of the book 'michael jackson conspiracy'.  she has appeared on programs such as: america's most wanted, the CBS early show, geraldo at large, inside edition, montel wiliams, medical detectives and the o'reilly factor.

on 'michael jackson conspiracy' (from aphroditejones.com):

"In June 2005, when Aphrodite Jones made her last appearance on The O’Reilly Factor related to the Michael Jackson trial, she experienced a striking moment of clarity: 

"As I made one of my last public comments on the case,” she remembers, “I realized that I had become one of the media bunch who had predetermined the outcome of the trial, wrongly.  Many people around me were so sure of Jackson’s guilt.  Many reporters had slanted TV and radio coverage to suit the prosecution, and I was one of those folks who had followed that dangerous trend.”

Now, in a new book, Michael Jackson Conspiracy, Jones is setting the record straight.  Aphrodite Jones's most daring book ever examines the case against the world's No. 1 entertainer:  Michael Jackson

Inspired by Jones's courageous writing, Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., Jackson's high profile attorney, has written a powerful foreword for Michael Jackson Conspiracy.

Under the influence of media, the entire world has reached judgments about Jackson.  The mainstream media report about him with an implicit  judgment, while tabloid media write about him with an explicit judgment.  In the face of this barrage of judgment, the resulting perceptions about Jackson have become aligned -- against him.  It has become impossible for the public to reconcile its admiration for Jackson's genius musical and artistic talent with the harsh judgments against him.  As a result of these seemingly irreconcilable views, it has become easier to ignore the good and focus on the bad.

For years now, we have been duped into believing that there has been only one side to a coin.

With the kind of behind-the-scenes insights that you have come to expect from Aphrodite Jones, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will shock you.  Jones provides a fresh look at the man who has been at the center of so much success -- and controversy.

What emerges from Michael Jackson Conspiracy is an image of the vulnerability of the most powerful entertainer in the world. 

All of the myths you have been lead to believe will be shattered. 

Everything you have come to know about Jackson will be upturned after you read Michael Jackson Conspiracy.

A book which will forever influence the way trials are reported, Michael Jackson Conspiracy will also move you with emotion.  And it will help you complete the picture of the most fascinating entertainer in the world. "

Chris (guest for 9-10-09)

Hi Jamilah,
Loved the show tonight - I was really struck by Chris' story and how ridiculously the Portland police handled his situation.  It makes me concerned for the future of civic-minded organizations like Copwatch and NoPo Cop Stop which exist to do exactly what Chris was doing - observe & record police conduct and provide that record as a defense to the people who police accuse of wrongdoing. 

Would it be possible for KBOO to post tonight's show or, at least, the fifteen minutes that Chris spoke about his encounter with Portland police on your webpage or myspace page?  I would be very interested to listen to it again and pass it along to my friends at Copwatch, if that is okay.  I believe the segment ranged between 8:45 pm - 9:00 pm.  Please feel free to e-mail me with a response - it would be great to hear from you.  Thank you very much for your help, and keep up the excellent work!

motown

Hey I love motown and motown history and it is sorta at the top of my list of interests right now, so if I wanted to offer some insight into your upcoming program, what is the protocol? Is there any way to get involved?

motown

yes, i am actually planning to do another show on motown; i didn't get to fit everything i wanted to fit into the show... my plan is to do something in april. i would like to go more in depth about what i was touching on in the last show... is it possible for a 'person of colour' to be successful in america and not sacrifice or compromise their beliefs? i want to do more in-depth conversations/interviews about that.

i am constantly welcoming people to get involved and have some input for the show, so that is wonderful that you are interested!!! what sorts of things were you thinking about?

speak soon,
peace,
jamilah
