Regina Ayars and Carol Voisin, producers of Girl Talk since April 2013, are local “girls” who decided that women and men needed some good old 60's “conscientiousness raising”. Each week they bring their own brand of feminism to the airwaves. They come together each week with slightly different perspectives - Carol more alternative and edgy and Regina more traditional and data driven - but always focused on women, their achievements, and their struggles.
Regina Ayars has lived in Ashland for the last thirteen years serving on boards for many local non-profits like League of Women Voters, Peace House, Rose Circle Network, American Association of University Women, Options for Homeless Residents of Ashland. She currently serves on the Ashland Housing and Human Services Commission. Carol Voisin is a professor at Southern Oregon University, teaching Ethics in the 21st Century, and is an Ashland City Councilor, serving her second term.
Girl Talk can be heard live every Sunday from Noon till 12:30 p.m. Archived programs are also available.
The dictionary tells us that a jamboree is any noisy merrymaking. Jupiter's Jamboree makes every effort to live up to that definition. Jupiter Hamilton creates a show combining classic and contemporary jam bands, local original music, live experimental music, poetry, interviews with guests and philosophic musings about the cosmic web of sound. The unexpected and expected dwell side by side in Jupiter Jamboree land. It's a sonic vision of a post-genre utopia.
Catch Jupiter's Jamboree Saturday nights from 8 - 10 pm.
Rock School is a one hour weekly showcase of classical rock music and little-known facts about the legendary artists featured. Dr. Joe Burns and Chad P team up to host this show. The concept was born in 2007 when Dr. Burns was asked to make a guest deejay appearance with Chad P. The hour went so well that both Burns and P decided to turn their 1 hour of fun into a weekly show. Two weeks later, Rock School was born.
Featuring various bands and singers from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, Rock School travels back to when the music was pure and teaches some not-so-pure things about the artists featured. "I love working with Doc. He's so into it and he knows so much. It's a challenge just to keep up with him, but one I really enjoy," said Chad P. "Their chemisrty together is unreal. You can tell they have a passion for the work they're doing," said Todd Delaney, general manager.
Tune in every Monday night at 1 pm.
