Radical Music: Christy Moore

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

 Today's show was peppered with selections of Christy Moore's music, including a fairly complete cut of Ordinary Man. Joe talked with Brad at the end of the show, and due to an engineering error we experienced almost 40-seconds of dead-air. It's been edited out of the online version, but we apologize if you endursed it live. Brad highlights Moore's internationalist taste in the music he covers and the causes he sings about, like Viva la Quince Brigada,but also the class-consciousness of songs like Ordinary Man.

Voices from the Edge 03-17-11 A new look at Oregon's Measure 11 and its impacts

Thu, 03/17/2011

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.
