Artists that Starve and Politicians that Suck...













Being an artist in a starving economy...

This week Art Basel is sweeping through Miami, making it a one time a year Mecca for modern art, art lovers and people that wear funny looking shoes.  But what does liking art and being an artist mean in these struggling times?  We will find out when we talk to modern artists, graffiti writers and others that try to reflect on the soul of our society.

But first...politicians that suck, part V...


Our politicians in Washington are having a real hard time fixing our economy and putting Americans back to work, as the whole super-committee stupidity demonstrates.  But those same politicians seem to have no problem coming together to pass laws that put US citizens in military prisons indefinitely.  Tune in as we talk about weird things that unite and divide Washington.

You know what to do...Tune in! Call in! Let's Talk About It!

Wednesday Nov. 30 @ 7pm EST

AFTERMATH: EGYPT, THANKSGIVING, & BLACK FRIDAY RE-VISIT...LISTEN!

So folks, first we talk about Egypt and Democracy. Then we talk about a family that fought off being evicted during the holiday.  Then we talked about Native America views on Thanksgiving (with an article that was mentioned here).  Then we talked about the Christmas creep and Black Friday's attempt to kill Thanksgiving with folks from the Respect The Bird campaign (plus a link to a petition here).  If you missed the show, download it here or press play below.

Plus we leave you with a song we played on the show

An Egypt Re-up and Thanksgiving Revisit...

WEDNESDAY Nov. 23 @ 7pm EST
or tune in locally (Miami) to 880 AM




Tune in on the day before Thanksgiving as we revisit what the holiday means for some of us.  Is it just a springboard for Christmas shopping, an ode to genocide, a defacto family reunion day?  Let's Talk About It!  But first...

During the Arab spring, our show on the Egypt uprisings talked about that country's struggle for Democracy.  As of this week, it seems like that struggle is no where near to being finished.  We have seen Tahrir Square refilled, hospitals lined with victims of tear gas and rubber bullets, and at least 40 deaths at the hands of Egyptian police and military.  We will revisit Egypt today to hear what news the struggle for democracy there will bring tomorrow.

You know the routine. Tune In! Call In! Let's Talk About It!

Occupy Endgame?! and Sex Crimes of the 1%

Wed. 11/16/01 @ 7pm EST
or listen local (Miami) at 880 am






FAMILY!  It is that time again and we have another live show!  Make sure you tune in and spread the word.

1.  Is this the end of Occupy or just the beginning?

On Tuesday, NYPD cops at the request of NY Mayor Mike Bloomberg raided Zuccotti Park and removed the protestors that had been Occupying Wall Street for almost two months. This just days after seemingly coordinated raids removed occupiers from their locations in Oakland, Portland and other cities.  Nationwide, a call is still going out for a massive November 17 day of action. Are this week's events a sign of the beginning of the end for the Occupy movement or just the beginning of the beginning? We'll talk about it...

2.  Sex Crimes of the 1%

The sex abuse controversy that unfolded this past week at Penn State reveals a few things: America's love of sports and unevenness in reacting to sex offenses when the alleged perps are the rich or the powerful. On the show, we will talk about how we should approach sex crimes vs. how they are approached now whether the perps are the 1% or the 99%.

If you missed our tribute to Joe Frazier and Heavy D with Dave Zirin, Rebel Diaz, LaGuardia and others, click here and check out Dave Zirin's other articles here.

Don't miss this show and don't be scared to join the real talk by calling us at 305-541-2350.

Hip Hop's 99%ers or the Heavy D and Joe Frazier tribute show...

WEDNESDAY, NOV 9 @ 7pm EST





NOTE:  IF YOU MISSED THE SHOW, CLICK HERE.

This week, we lost two legends, "Smokin" Joe Frazier and the "Overweight lover" Heavy D.  This show is dedicated to both.


We will talk with Dave Zirin about Joe Frazier's legacy.  Then we will switch gears to talk Hip Hop's 99%.  Hip Hop artists have always had 99 problems that have made them the voice of the 99%.  We will talk to Daniel Barajas about one of those 99 problems and chat it up with Rebel Diaz about how they occupied the airwaves.  But we will also be joined in the studio by our main fam, La Guardia, Devin Arne, and Fernando Castro-the ones that brought us Miami's 99% anthem, to talk about Hip Hop, Hip Rock, and what occupies the mind of Hip Hop's 99%.

You don't wanna miss this show.   But we will all miss Joe Frazier and Heavy D.

Tune in! Call in! Let's Talk About It!

Ill Occupy Communications and a Little "House" Keeping...Tune in!

TONIGHT!  Wed. Nov. 2 @ 7pm

or listen local (Miami) at 880 am



Ill Communications Part I
The "Occupy" movement has fostered new methods to communicate the 99% message to the 99% using old vehicles like newspapers and comic books...yep comic books.  As part of our ongoing coverage of Occupy, we will check in with the folks from Occupied Wall Street Journal and Occupy Comix about the why and the how of Communications, 99%-style.
and then...
House Keeping "when you're broke"
As part of our continuing, "when you are broke" segment, we won't talk about cleaning your house.  You can figure that part out by yourself.  Instead, we will touch on how to keep your house.  Please don't miss it if you need it.

You know the drill...
