Here's what's on KSKQ this week:
- Farm Talk, Tuesday, August 23 @ 10 am. Our guest this week will be Steve Fry's daughter Amber. Amber has spearheaded the Fry Family Farm project to create a food distribution hub and retail local food store in West Medford. Amber has been the lead organizer for this massive cooperative cold storage and retail space. She did the grant writing and oversaw the whole project.
What happens when you travel to fifty-seven countries around the world? For one, you see a lot. If you are a photographer, you are likely to photograph what you see. You also hear a lot. And, if you are interested in music, you hear the totally amazing variety of music people around the world play. You learn different rhythms, different harmonies. You became an ethnomusicologist or someone who studies the social and cultural aspects of music and dance in local and global contexts. If you bring all that music home, you start a radio show called Juice Box.
That's exactly what Richard Felker has done. And if KSKQ community radio had the ability to broadcast images, you'd be able to see the photographs too. Alas, our technology hasn't reached that level yet. But the music more than makes up for that.
Tune in every Tuesday at 1 pm to hear tracks from Richard's collection.
The Latin Alternative is co-hosted by two of the genre’s leading experts, Josh Norek (co-founder of the Latin Alternative Music Conference and frontman of Latino-Jewish rap group Hip Hop Hoodíos) and Ernesto Lechner (contributing writer for Rolling Stone, LA Times, & Chicago Tribune and author of the book ‘Rock en Español: The Latin Alternative Rock Explosion’). The program focuses on crossover-friendly Latin rock, electronic, funk and hip-hop artists. Recent interviews have included GRAMMY-winning artists like Ozomatli & Jaguares, as well as buzz-heavy newcomers like Diego Garcia, Ana Tijoux and The Pinker Tones.
Saturdays, 1 - 2 pm.
