SORT BY Relevancy
Based on a conversation I had with Jason from California, today we take on pop culture's assualt on the urban community. Do the images, sounds, and directves of pop culture have a negative effect on Blacks in the urban community. Who are those pulling the strings and writing the checks of the dominant media culture? Are these people responsible for what we see on our big screen tlevisions and on the streets of our communities?
Now, none of this relieves the individual of their responsibilty however this opens the door to the question of how and why.
Our program is rooted in solutions. We'll discuss issues, but you/we, have to bring solutions to the table! Call in with your points and opinions, AND your solution!! Who are the real vultures of our culture? Former music mogul Dame Dash has recently been discussing "culture vultures". Individuals who profit off of the African-American community without contributing positively to it. These individuals exploit us for monetary gain, then are nowhere to be seen and heard from when cultural issues arise. Let's discuss the topic and most importantly, SOLUTIONS!
Discussion will be about empowering our people. How current events take away and destroy our culture and what we can do as an individual and as a people to gain it back. We will be discussing false teachings that has been handed down in our culture, and how the OTHERS has helped with spreading lies amongst and about our people. We will sharing knowledge of our culture and ancestoral background. We encourge to know thyself. " A PEOPLE WITHOUT A CULTURE MUST DIE."..
Jeff Gonzales was raised in Phoenix's East Valley, writing songs for his first band The Dirt Bike Kids at 15. He then served as bassist/vocalist of Tempe's Loud Americans, with the late Marco Holt. In 2005, he joined psychedelic pop band Skybox, relocating with them to Chicago. During this time he began to write and perform as a solo artist, embracing more traditional folk and country music in his songwriting, and testing his songs out at the El train stops in the Windy City. Gonzales later returned to Arizona and recorded his solo debut, The Lights Just Went Out..., which he produced with Aaron Ott. The 6-song EP earned him high praise, including Songwriter of the Year honors from YabYum Music & Arts. A new record is currently in the works, with the single The Robin & Birch Tree to precede the new record, sometime in 2015.
D.G. Scherrer is a singer-songwriter and award-winning poet from Phoenix, AZ. He began writing and singing songs when he was twelve years old, as the front man for a junior high school punk band. Since then he has become something of a songwriter's songwriter, crafting dark, catchy, lyrically sophisticated tunes in the tradition of Leonard Cohen and Townes Van Zandt. Still, the bite and immediacy of punk remains apparent in his songs, as well as in the sheer volume of his voice when he roars a chorus. Scherrer draws heavily on older American music forms, particularly blues, gospel and country.
