SORT BY Relevancy
Music and art have been cut back or cut out of our our public schools curriculums because of budget cuts and a greater emphasis on standardized testing in the academic areas of math, reading and science. Is this a mistake? Can arts education enhance learning and help students excel in academic subjects? Music educator and doctoral researcher Ron Watson discusses his research on the effects on integrating music into academic subjects.
This show is straight from the heart! As a creative person whose passion is the arts, I find the cutbacks in arts education in recent years have created a void in the production of cultured people in our society. Many years ago, fresh out of kindergarten, I was immersed in the arts. Encouraged to write. Exposed to classical music, theatre, museums, etc. It was as important as math and history. As I grew older and faced the problems of the day, or felt in despair it was knowing that by simply picking up a pencil and writing a poem, drawing a picture, dancing, or by singing a song that I could turn things around. That for a time I had the power to change something.
Now as an adult, I know that one can take that to the next level and beyond and feel empowered to question, to seek answers, and to ponder change.
School is about to begin and we have to think seriously about making Arts Education mandatory to ensure the future and empowerment of our youth. Guest, classically trained singer, Janie Braxton and I will discuss the state of Arts Education, and compare ourexperiences with Arts Education; she as a student in Detroit public schools, and I as a student in NYC public schools.
After such a wonderful show on this topic, which originally aired on Labor Day, I've invited Janie Braxton back and another past guest Stephen Wilson Jr., from Arts Ed organization TWW Inc., to talk more about how the Arts have impacted our lives personally, and what we can do to pick up the slack and help expose the Arts to our youth. I have recently decided to reach out to endangered Black and Latino male youth to let them partake in working on my upcoming projects, and take them to cultural events in and effort to empower them through cultural immersion.
Through my non profit fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, I will be able to accept tax deductible donations of tickets, and or funds in this endeavor. If you'd like to help please make your contribution at:
Stephen Wilson Jr. is currently fundraising to be able to continue his work in bringing Arts Ed to students. Check out the link:

Tonight, on 'The Boiler Room,' we'll take a look at the arts within the community. Whether they're musicians, painters, writers, or any other form of art: why are artists regarded on a lower status than the engineer, lawyer, or doctor? Then, guns: although many support the right to have them, what would be the limits? Should children be exposed to them? What's the best way to handle them safely? Forat Kuza, instructor of Action Impact Firearms and Training Center, will be live to discuss the good and the bad in regards to guns and gun safety. Then, politicians within the community are scarce: but should we support a Chaldean politician even if
we don't agree with their views? Tune in tonight at 8PM. Call in at 347-857-3847 with questions or comments!

Radiation Issues: Outside the Box Perspectives
Lost Arts Radio Show on Saturday 1/24/15
Listen or talk with us: 657-383-1002
9PM EST / 6PM PST
Tell Your Friends!
This coming Saturday we bring you a show very different from most shows on the subject of radiation and nuclear issues. Two super guests bring their unique perspectives to share with us and the results are mind-expanding. One top level nuclear expert and one test pilot who was assigned to fly through mushroom clouds of nuclear explosions both spend time with us to share what they have learned.
Dr. Christopher Busby (www.chris.busby.exposed), world renowned chemical physicist and nuclear expert who has been often interviewed on the details of the Fukushima disaster and other growing nuclear dangers in our world gives us an insight into his personal feelings on the world of science, the state of humanity and the need for a new kind of education in an interview recorded last week from his home in Latvia. This is a rare chance to sit in on an informal personal visit with Dr. Busby that you won’t want to miss.
Captain Gary Pylant (www.INSKYTechnologies.com), nuclear test pilot came up with an outside the box solution to the nuclear contamination he got from his job as well as the chemical exposure he got as a pilot applying agricultural poisons as a crop duster from the air. His story is extraordinary, and is meant to inspire you and remind you that your immune system can protect you to an amazing extent from all kinds of environmental threats, if you know how to activate it. Join us for a one of a kind unscripted conversation with Captain Pylant. Hear about what led to his discoveries, how he applied them, and how you can use the same tools to successfully overcome health challenges in your own life.
