taking action against foreclosure...

several weeks ago we spoke with alicia jackson and ahjamu umi (via telephone) about the damaging effects of foreclosure on communities in portland.  they will be coming in the studio, live and direct, to speak further on the issue; as well as discussing several upcoming actions regarding foreclosure resistance.  there are several local organizations which assist people who are in the midst of foreclosure.  'occupy northeast- the black working group' is one of these organizations, in which the specific focus is to help African people fight being evicted, and to encourage people to remain in their homes.  since they will be here live, alicia will be able to tell her story more in-depth, and you will be able to call in (503-231-8187) with any questions or comments!&nbs

honoring the life of sister whitney elizabeth houston...

here we are again...  we've done shows for heavy d, don cornelius, miriam makeba...  each show harder than the last.  this time, it's even more difficult to say we are doing a show, honoring the life of sister whitney elizabeth houston.  we did not expect this to hurt as much as it did (we mean, as much as it did when OUR TEACHER transcended). 

whitney was a person, like all others we have honored, who emanated light.  the light is more evident when she is performing live, or when she speaks; therefore, this is the focus we are taking in these three hours. 

we hope in this time you will be able to see her light- this light which transcends beyond any physical form- as well.

a conversation with ahjamu umi

indeed, we are looking forward to this...  you see, it's one thing to do a show with just our own voice- we are quite familiar with that.  it's ANOTHER thing to have another person there, who shares similar perspectives. 

the goal of 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' is to address issues we feel are important in order for people with a direct afrikan lineage to educate themselves, in order to be self-sufficient: mentally, physically- and ultimately economically.  ahjamu umi urges an active-ism where the motherland is in its spirit.

honoring don cornelius...

we have to say, we are in shock...  we just lost an elder, who was pivotal to our youth.  every saturday we would get up, excited to watch other young people dance to the latest songs on 'soul train'; and to hear its host, don cornelius with his deep, silky voice announce the guests.  cornelius had a dream to represent a people who he felt were not properly represented through media; and his dream was fulfilled with persistence and hard work.  'soul train' was unmistakable in connecting communities all over the nation- and eventually, world.

honoring ETTA JAMES, and COMMUNITY RADIO!!!

as we approach another year of KBOO-style community radio, we also approach another year of honoring those who have graced us with their artistic presence on this earth.  ETTA JAMES was a woman who was highly regarded in her field; at the same time, she remained unsung.  like aretha franklin, many are inspired by her, but there will never be anyone like her.  she was tough yet sensitive, in a world which encouraged the two to be mutually exclusive. 

join us at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' from 7-10 pm as we honor ms. james, taking a tour of her artistic life; from the sentimental ballads right on down to the foundations of rock n' roll.

discussing the enemy expatriation act (!!!); and honoring james, otis and castor...

TIMES ARE URGENT, GOOD PEOPLE!!!  as SOPA and PIPA are 'indefinitely' ceased, the question we have at 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' is, was the focus on these bills a coverup for the 'ENEMY EXPATRIATION ACT' (H.R. 3166 and S. 1698)?  the house bill was sponsored by congressmen charlie dent and jason altmire; the senate bill was sponsored by joeseph lieberman and scott brown.  clearly, this is NOT going to receive as much media attention as SOPA or PIPA, and many people may not have as much concern for this bill, because it seemingly does not effect them as directly, since many who protested these bills with access to the internet and other technologies use them daily.

debate distraction...?

with the republican debates currently happening, this tends to be a primary news story.  is it possible for this to be seen as a distraction to the actions taken by the administration currently in washington? 

obama's full-on signing into law of the NDAA (despite claiming opposition to portions of the bill), as well as the issue of SOPA (the 'stop online piracy act') are getting virtually ignored by most (major) media, in order to cover these debates.  (1. is the NDAA signing the 'last straw' for obama supporters?  (2. how different are the two major parties in terms of policy?

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. "

Comments

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
