Old Mole Variety Hour for December 29, 2008

program date: 
Sun, 12/28/2008

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how the emerging Obama administration is walking the  line between public interest and private profit in two areas: health care and education.  It  features several great drum solos from the jazz world (mostly curtailed in the webcast for copyright reasons), and  Larry Bowlden's review of  Unseen Sights, a novel about mental health and its costs. 

One drum piece is heard in its entirety (following Larry's book review); it's by Glen Sheidt of Iretsu.
