Ok, I'm getting really excited about our January 13th show...Jan Michael Looking Wolf LIVE!

Osiyo, Listeners! Be ready for a rockin good show on January 13th when Jan Michael Looking Wolf, NAMMY award winning musician will appear LIVE on Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People.

Jan will be bring his guitarist, Nathan Meyers and will grace us with some awesome music as well as tell us about his recent honor, 2010 Record of the Year.

Those who listened to "Indian Country"'s July 23rd, audition show with Jan Michael, will remember him playing from  his "Breakin Free" CD, well, that is the record that won him the award.

Jan tells me that he has been inspired to go a different direction with the flute now, an exciting new path that he promises to talk about when on January 13th.

Looking forward to our Rez Solutions Show and to hosting Jan Michael Looking Wolf

program date: 
Thu, 12/23/2010

It's that time of year, when Jo Ann and Dave review which of our public figures deserve a gift in their stocking and which deserve a lump of coal, such as Senator John McCain for his blind opposition to "don't ask, don't tell"; Governor-elect John Kitzhaber for stonewalling single-payer health care advocates once again;  and even closer to home, Portland Police Chief Reese and his public position on participatory democracy.

Listeners called in and shared their holiday list of candidates.
