    Women vs. Toxic Chemicals

    in Environment

    Erin Switalski, Executive Director, Women’s Voices for the Earth

    All those in favor of a toxic free future, please say “aye.” Ready for this to start your new year off healthy? Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) was formed by a group of visionary women leaders in Missoula, Montana in 1995. Seeing that many environmental organizations at the time failed to include women in leadership positions and did not fully recognize the systemic connections between health, class, race, and the environment, WVE sought to create a new environmental organization led by women. Their incredibly important mission? To amplify women’s voices to eliminate the toxic chemicals that harm our health and communities. Imagine that! Plan to join us because our health matters – men, women, and children! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

  • YWCA, Talks CSKT, Social Justice & Racism????

    in Politics

    In case you missed the "lecture and discussion" (more one sided "lecture") that the Missoula YWCA presented March 27, you just may find this episode really interesting. The "Y" classified this little get together under their Community Social Justice Series – CSKT Water Compact. The event tags were CSKT Water Compact, Racial Justice. Yep you read that right! "Racial Justice"

    This is from their website:

    "For our March YWTalks, we will host Mary Stranahan of the organization Montana Water Stewards for a lecture and discussion about the proposed CSKT-Montana Compact. According to the Reserved Water Rights Compact Comission, the Compact “will make new water available for commercial and irrigation use, end the water administration void on the Flathead Reservation, allow for economic development under conditions of legal certainty on and off the Reservation, and facilitate the completion of the statewide general stream adjudication.” For more information, contact Organizer Amanda at aopitz@ywcaofmissoula.org. 406 543 6691

    TVFM did attend and what you will hear in this episode is the raw uncut, unedited audio clip of this "lecture", accompanied with TVFM's comments. After which you just might contact the "organizer", not for infromation but to give her a piece of your mind and some real CSKT compact data!

    BTW There was another suprise speaker. Tune in to find out.

    Native Broadcast Network Presents-March to May Indie Folk Music from Seattle, WA

    in Music

    Who is March to May? 

     Darren Guyaz (guitar, vocals, keyboard) roamed the northern Appalachians through his childhood, plinking & plunking the classical keys until he ventured West to his birth-state of Montana, settling in Missoula to finish a degree in Geography. One evening on an old, historic homestead in the hills north of town, he picked up a friend’s guitar and began strumming, teaching himself how to play a few chords, finger-picking his way through the frets, and forever changing his musical expression.

    Beth Wesche (Celtic harp, vocals) Beth spent her formative years wandering through the Andes and across a smattering of U.S. states.  The daughter of a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, she stayed in each place just long enough to fall in love with it before moving on to the next adventure.  Music wove its way through her life from an early age - she sang in choirs from elementary school to college, beginning classical voice training and starting to sing a cappella as she grew older.  While living in Ashland, Oregon, she picked up the Celtic folk harp and found herself captivated by the sound.  However, a few short years after beginning to play, she moved to the East Coast, leaving her harp silent in her family’s living room for five years and largely convincing herself that music would have to take a back seat in her life.

    in Politics

    So... this is one of my favorite months. The month of evil spirits, spells, horror , monsters, vampires, witches and warlocks. Yeah.. kind of like more government pox on US the people... but a lot less scary than what the government actually does. October...the Global Halloween Month!!

    So during this episode. we want to hear your American Horror Story. Your neck of the woods carnival of horrors. The sheriff joke of a race in Missoula.  Any joke of an election. The Fed water grab.The oxymoron "wildlife management" and "wildlife confinement". Got Ebola? Mill levies ...just another cost of a brew and pizza slice. Gay marriage...another oxymoron. Illusion vs reality...or just another oximoron?

    I'm sure I missed a few, so call in and supply the rest.  Let's see how much of the real horror we can connect with the fictional Halloween horror.
