Ronnie Gilbert joins Pete and Lee, jamming somewhere. Like Pete, she was never supposed to die. I didn’t realize that she’d been living in Caspar with her wife for the past decade!

Some stuff dating back as far as 1986.

The Mateel has put up a series of Youtube video lists for your pleasure.

I’m doing a special Thursday Night Talk on KHSU tomorrow night, out of my usual time slot. We are putting together a show on Transgender issues in the wake of the Caitlyn Jenner story and we hope to have several of that community on to discuss them. It’s kind of a last minute project. I will post more as it comes together.


Some great performances.  Here’s one.

Have a Transformational Weekend at the Summer Arts & Music Festival

This weekend, May 30th & 31st, the quiet green of Benbow Lake State Recreation Area, will transform into the lively and colorful site of the 39th annual Summer Arts & Music Festival! This year the Festival, known for it’s diversity and family feel, has also been honored as one the top ““15 Transformational Festivals to Attend in 2015″” by Fest 300 Magazine, that reviews festivals worldwide.

Let’s take a look at some of the SAMF’s more transformational features this year.

First of all the Trees Stage, as always, will feature an awesome line-up of music from JJ Grey & MoFro headlining Saturday night, to Sunday night’s headliner, Blackalicious and exciting performances like Motherlode featuring Fred Wesley, Angelo Moore & Brand New Step; Candelaria; The Brothers Comatose; Todo Mundo and many more.

In between major acts Trees will feature such beloved locals as Feet First Dancers, (at noon both days), Lost Coast Marimbas and many others. See the full stage schedule for more details and check out the Main Talent Photo Array farther down this page for more details.

Throughout both days of the festival you’ll also enjoy more than 60 of the best local musical acts, dance troupes, and children’s entertainers.

Starting at the far south end of the fairway, and working our way back to the Trees stage, new this year, is “The Sacred Round”. Located in the turnaround loop, adjacent to the Solar Stage, The Sacred Round is a giant calendar of painted river rocks created to honor Earth and celebrate her seasons. The Solstices; North and South & Equinoxes; East and West will be highlighted, giving the viewers a visual representation of the four seasons. Everyone is invited to walk The Round and give thanks.

There will be a table at the Devine Round Calendar Booth for people to paint a rock and place it in the Sacred Round on a day that is special to them. Special guest- local teacher and author, Gillian Brown, will conduct a ceremony at noon and also read a story for children at 1pm both days.

Thursday Night Talk on KHSU​ this week – I will have Natalynne Delapp on to discuss north coast transportation issues, including Richardson Grove as well as sustainable local economic development.  This will be an extension of a discussion which began on my last TNT show.  I expect this show to be as lively as the last.  7:00 p.m. as always.


“When Irish eyes are smiling, sure it’s like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy, all the world seems bright and gay…”


Bob Froehlich and Julia Minton will join me to discuss logical and other argumentative fallacies in discourse.  7:00 p.m. as usual on KMUD.

Here’s a list of fallacies for homework.
