    I am joined by the Founder and President of Arte al Sole, Shannon Kenny.  We talk about her camp, Arte al Sole for children in six locations throughout Italy and how the camps allow children to embrace, food, art, culture, natural history, and history.  We talk about Shannon’s awesome background in Medieval and Renaissance History and what motivates her, and more importantly, the children at Arte al Sole.

    Jason Hayes: Drama Teacher & Coach

    in Entertainment

    Jason Hayes joins the show tonight to talk about their GoFundMe campaign to help raise funds to take students in their program to the UK this summer to perform!

    Call 323 657-1493 to ask questions or join in the fun!
     


    Jason is the Director of Theatre and Lead Teacher for Arts, Media and Entertainment at James Monroe High School in North Hills, a suburb of Los Angeles. With productions that include, Oedipus the King, Wiley and the Hairy Man, Zombie Prom and School House Rock Live! along with on campus festivals that include Comedia Del Arte, Shakespeare and traditional Folkloric dance, his students have been selected by the American High School Theatre Festival as one of only 40 schools from North America to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland this August, 2015. While his students are severely economically disadvantaged and labeled "at risk" for a myriad of reasons, they have honed their energies into theatre arts and created for themselves the opportunity of a lifetime in their performance of Romeo y Julieta at this year's Edinburgh Fringe. 


    Romeo y Julieta is a bi-lingual Romeo and Juliet translated by the students. Using Shakespeare's language and spoken in Original, Elizabethan Pronunciation along with colloquial Spanish, Monroe Theatre tells the story of "star crossed lovers" from rival Hispanic families living in San Fernando, CA.


    This is not West Side Story. Romeo y Julieta touches on the, very real, inner-racial tension within the Hispanic community my students deal with daily.

    in Entertainment

    Christopher Dean Sullivan, Executive Director of Artistic Resolutions To Education (ARTE).  A program which offers interactive clinics, workshops and residencies that follow the American World Music Genre...Jazz, and other musical art forms and genres from its origins in the United States through its journey and integration throughout the world and will feature DVD presentations and master class interactive demonstrations.


    In recent years, school curricula in the United States have shifted heavily toward common core subjects of reading and math. What has suffered most has been the arts.  Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate the arts may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.


    Know by so many, the Arts play a major role in the Developmental of a child.  Some of the benefits include; motor skills, language development, decision making, visual learning, inventiveness and cultural awareness.  It is also well know that the arts clear make an impact and improve academic performance.

    in Sports

    One week is down. 7-8 games are “in the books.” Just 154 games to go . . . and already some improbable things have taken place and we’re talking about here on Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters program with Frat House Mike and this week’s “Frat Boys” Sean and Nick.
     
    They’re joined early to commiserate about the challenges of being a fan of one of the worst teams in MLB by Minnesota Twins Baseball Insider and frequent contributor to KTWN 96.3-FM, Brandon Warne.


    The Josh Hamilton story continues to swirl and more people weigh-in heavily against the management of the Los Angeles Angels; Barry Bonds shows some love to Alex Rodriguez (3 – 2 – 1 -- *hurl*); and, don’t look now but PED’s are back in the news and even MLB doesn’t know why!


    Frat House Mike’s Screw-Ball Stories – Frat House Sports’ Series Streak Challenge . . . and much more.


    How much more? Well how about YOU, some peanuts, Cracker Jack . . . and your phone calls at 347 – 826 – 9964 with the “Clean-Up Hitters” of the Frat House Sports Radio Network.

    Pensar distinto del resto de la sociedad en la que vivimos, gracias a los pocos que la han creado por su propio beneficio, es complicado. Pero, ¿qué significa realmente para pensar distinto? En primer lugar, tenemos que entender de una vez por todas que todos los seres humanos somos iguales, tal vez cortados de diferentes formas, tamaños y colores. Todos con diversas creencias y con la capacidad de volar por nuestra cuenta, si eso es lo que decidimos hacer. No somos diferentes de aquellas personas que hoy están viviendo su sueño. Pero, cuál es la diferencia entre ellos y nosotros? Estos "soñadores" nunca se dieron por vencidos. No les importo lo mucho que la gente hablo de su locura e incapacidad, nunca se detuvieron. Entonces, ¿cómo hacemos nosotros para seguir ese ejemplo cuando tenemos unas vidas tan ocupadas y con tantas preocupaciones? La realidad es que somos seres en constante cambio. Podemos alterar nuestra vida en un momento dado si realmente decidimos hacerlo, y así entonces poner estas palabras a prueba. Tome un instrumento, vaya al gimnasio, coma sano, rodéese de positivismo, tome agua, respire, y le aseguro que dentro de unos días usted comenzará a ver una diferencia, comenzará a ver un cambio. La pregunta aquí es, ¿de verdad quiere seguir sus sueños? Ya que nadie los puede lograr por usted. Si quiere ir a Roma, necesita comenzar a pensar en ello, visualizar y proyectar. Si no hay claridad en cuanto a los pasos que debe tomar para llegar allí, nunca va a suceder, ni mañana, ni el año que viene, nunca! debe entonces tomar nota, hacer una lista y ejecutarla.

    Nuestra misión es enseñar, compartir y recordar que si queremos un cambio tenemos que empezar por nosotros mismos. Individualmente tener presente que ‘Mi voz importa, mi experiencia importa’ y tenemos que luchar día a día por nuestros sueños sin esperar que alguien más lo haga por nosotros.
