guess who's coming to radio??!!': the pre-emption version!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' are actually going to be pre-empted at our normal hour (there is going to be a live broadcast with environmental journalist/author bill mcKibben)- however, we are STILL going to be on- just at a different time.

we are going to play a variety of artists we don't normally play on our show (aka non-afrikan artists) during these hours; it's still gonna be done our way though!  to keep it in the spirit of the 'election'/selection season, we are going to open up and dedicate a few songs to the experience (with an active-ist/'revolutionary' lean, of course).  we are going to round out the show with songs from our favourite albums of all time.

a discussion on freedom...

there is a question we believe we will always continue to ask:  ARE WE FREE?  is freedom a myth, or are there elements of truth to it?  is it deemed to be primarily political; or does it lend itself towards a spiritual or philisophical meaning as well in these times?

Short Description: 
the willie lynch letter: myth or model?

the willie lynch letter: it is a document recognized as a model of perpetuating a structure of slavery for african peoples, particularly in the u.s.

the letter gained national recognition in the 1990s; because of this, there continues to be a debate regarding it's authenticity.  is it a hoax, or was it simply unearthed after many years at that time?  if indeed it is a hoax, who is the author?  is it written in malice or concern?  is it a satire?

is the 'willie lynch letter' merely a written outline of what black people are doing to themselves?  is it written in order to get people to awaken from their conditioned slumber?

...honouring the teacher, radio 2012 style...

we are taking another year to reflect on the works of our teacher (and ancestor) michael jackson.  even though we have come to terms with his transition it still has been hard for us during different points of the year.  however, we do our best to honour him as much as we can to the best of our abilities; and we continuously marvel at how much we learn something new every day when it comes to him.

honoring the creative light of women!

we at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' want to take the time out to honor the creative light of women- women who compose, produce and/or arrange their art.  because there is such a focus on women as simply singers or dancers, it is rare to hear the narratives of those who take charge of the creative process:  women such as angela winbush, tawatha agee, rachelle ferrell, teena marie, betty wright, lalah hathaway, gwen guthrie and many others. 

one such person who takes charge of the creative process and uses it for good is blue, the 'portland by way of st. louis' songstress.  blue will be here with us to celebrate this creative spirit.

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
