After a 29 year hiatus (or one Saturn return cycle), DJ Organic (aka Andrew Harrison), formerly know as Captain Organic, has returned to the airwaves at KSKQ FM. Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Captain Organic graced the airwaves of Los Angeles's alternative rock giant KROQ and it’s smaller competitor, KNAC in Long Beach. In the mid-1980s, Organic also did a year stint with Rick Dees in his infamous “Cast of Idiots” at KIIS FM in LA as “Andrew Bond.”
The new show at KSKQ, “Old Skool Rules” is a throwback to the era of the counter culture personality DJ’s with music featuring deep tracks from records from the '60s through the '90s. It is mostly rock, both classic and cutting edge with some blues and funk thrown in. Also expect lots of comedy from the Firesign Theater, National Lampoon, Cheech and Chong, the Credibility Gap and more.
Outside the studio, Andrew has been a pioneer in the organic and natural products industry. In 1978, he introduced the first frozen organic veggie burger, the Captain Organic Vital Burger, five years before Gardenburger. Since then, Andrew has launched several other product lines including the Heart & Soul and VegiPro Brands. Andrew also represented many large natural product companies including Emerald Valley Kitchen, Planet, Nature’s Path, Yves Fine Foods, Imagine Foods, Primal Strips. Lovers of frozen desserts will be happy to know that Andrew assisted in launch of the popular treat Coconut Bliss. Finally, he helped Turtle Mountain (So Delicious brand) transition from a soy-based to a primarily coconut-based company. He still imports organic coconut ingredients for them.
He's excited to serve the great People’s Republic of Ashlandia in the Gone Rogue Valley! Tune to 89.5 FM every Monday at 4 pm.
Really Being With You is a weekly program of spontaneous talk, aimed at helping listeners develop their spiritual level of awareness. Meditation is a key to this change. The talks are meant to help lead to the contemplative experience, and its presence in daily life.
Among the questions Moshe asks are these: How can we deal with conflicts, threats and fears? How can we feel peace inwardly and foster it outwardly? How can we respond when a situation looks hopeless? The answers to these questions can be found deep within, and provide a way to open, through meditation, that well of love and guidance.
One of the principles Moshe explores is Reconciliation unto Love. In reconciliation, we discover the harmony of the great wisdom traditions of humanity. And in our reconciliation practice, we learn to access a strength within that allows us to drop our judgments and see through our doubts to an unconditional serenity. We look into our own half-hidden problems, sometimes reverberating from our childhood, and we can begin to forgive our own faults. Solutions to conflicts that will bless everyone involved can come to us. And as we find ourselves growing, we are also becoming accepting and approving. We begin to feel compassion and love, love that overcomes our divisions and suffering.
Instead of struggling, feeling separated from people and things, we can open a new way of Oneness. Through meditation we come into contact with the one life, which appears to us as healing, as happiness, as a whole transformed world.
Really Being With You can be heard every Saturday morning from 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Most of the previous programs are available in the "Programming" section of our website.
Law and Disorder is a weekly, independent radio program airing on several stations across the United States and podcasting on the web. Law and Disorder gives listeners access to rare legal perspectives on issues concerning civil liberties, privacy, right to dissent and the horrendous practices of torture exercised by the US government. This program examines the political forces and legislation that are moving the United States into a police state.
Three of the top progressive attorneys and activists host the show: Michael Ratner is the president of the Center for Constitutional Rights and author of Guantanamo: What the World Should Know. Michael has worked for decades, as a crusader for human rights both at home and abroad litigating many cases against international human rights violators resulting in millions of dollars in judgments for abuse victims and expanding the possibilities of international law. Heidi Boghosian is the A.J. Muste Memorial Institute, a nonprofit charitable foundation providing support to the nonviolent movement for social change. She has published articles on policing, protest and the First Amendment including Punishing Protest and The Assault on Free Speech, Public Assembly, and Dissent. Michael Steven Smith is the author, editor, and co-editor of six books, mostly recently Imagine: Living In A Socialist U.S.A. He has testified before committees of the United States Congress and the United Nations on human rights issues.
