For example today's schools revert to being all-black or all-white. African-Americans are denied access to the polls. Unarmed black men are killed by police.

Alt-Country ?

Alternative country (sometimes alt-country), insurgent country, or Americana is a loosely defined subgenre of country music, which includes acts that differ significantly in style from mainstream or pop country music. It has been used to describe country music bands and artists that have incorporated influences ranging from roots rock, bluegrass, rockabilly, honky-tonk, alternative rock, folk rock and sometimes punk. 

I am not sure what any of that means so pleae tune in Saturday morning as D.J. Dennis and I explore the phrase "loosely defined subgenre". Additionally we will spend time focusing on the music of Ryan Adams.

Recent releases from Norwegian artists
The highlight of tonight's show is a half hour peice from a new album "Celadon" on Important Records. "Celadon" was perfomed in an Oslo mausoleum by Maja SK Ratkje, Jon Wessltoft, Camille Norment and Per Gisle Galaen, and is decribed as "a work of slowly evolving beauty that gradually unravels its meditative design" and "a bold, striking and deceptively ferocious artistic statement that is like absolutely nothing else" .
               To complement this work, we will listen to some other recent releases that feature Norwegian musicians, for two hours of dissonant drones, strange soundscapes and other odd ambiences.  Hosted by Rolf.

Pell Grants for Prisoners
Karen James and Gretchen Vala, OregonCure, discuss the Obama administration’s recent announcement for a new federal grant program to pay for college for state and federal prisoners. Congress banned prisoners from being eligible for Pell grants in 1994. Nationwide 43.3% of formerly incarcerated individuals are likely to return to prison within three years of release, the likelihood drops to 5.6% for Bachelor’s degree recipients and less than 1% for Master’s degree recipients. The maximum Pell grant award this year is $5,775; grants do not have to be repaid. Prisoners eligible for release will be enrolled in a Pell grant pilot project. The ban on Pell grants cannot be lifted without Congressional approval. If passed, HR 2521 will reinstate Federal Pell Grants to prisoners.
