    Hip Hop Theater, NY Hip Hop in Norway, Nicki Minaj

    in Music

    Hip hop theater has been gaining traction in recent years, as artists, musicians, playwrights and others have found compelling ways to blend the genres of music and theater. It's not always "musicals" in the traditional sense either, with artistic hybrids becoming more and more common.

    Tonight, we'll talk with Cici Henriksen who is heading up SPKRBOX - Hiphopteaterfestival i Trondheim og Oslo, a mutli-city event happening at the end of the month. SPKRBOX is Norway's first hip hop theater festival, and will include several artists and playwright from the NY area, including festival hosts Zeps and Dama Nilz, actor/playwright Craig "muMs" Grant, and Baba Brinkman, who was a guest on our show back in 2013.

    Of course, we'll have out NY hip hop picks of the week, and a bit of a discussion is planned around Nicki Minaj's latest song/video "Lookin' Ass"... As always, we will welcome the input from our live listeners, callers and chat room members!

    Stevie J. Bio. - Already hailed as the new face of the Delta Blues, Stevie J is well on his way to capturing the crown of Southern Soul as well.

    His guitar skills are nothing short of spectacular. He is a supremely confident vocalist capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric from any genre. Yet Stevie J remains humble and true to his first love. THE BLUES

    Stevie J, the son of pastor and native of Jackson, MS, started his career in the gospel field playing for artist such as the Williams Brothers, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Jackson Southernaires and the great Shirley Caesar.

    Stevie J found his true calling when he teamed up with legends such as Bobby Rush, Pat Brown, Denise LaSalle and Shirley Brown. Stevie J recorded with Bobby Rush on the Folk Funk album and is also featured with the Martin Scorsese blues series live at Ground Zero. Stevie J has toured throughout Switzerland and France performing at the Cognac Blues Festival. His talent has also taken him to Spain, Italy, Norway and Belgium.

    Stevie J is a delight to the eyes and ears. He plays what he feels and has fun doing it. Right now Stevie is enjoying the success of his new album 2 Sides OF a Man with the single “Because Of Me”, which is #1 on the Southern Soul chart.

    There can be little doubt that Stevie J  is the undisputed New Face of The Delta Blues (and goodwill ambassador of American Music), for as long as he lives.

    SATURDAY MORNING WAKE UP - Civil Rights 50 Years Later

    in Spirituality


    Topic for the Day:  Civil Rights 50 Years Later

    Today, in Washington DC, a nationwide coalition of civil rights groups is marching on the United States Capitol to call for legislation against discrimination by police and torture in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s post-9/11 torture program. 

    Fifty years ago -- in 1964 --  Dr. Martin Luther King was in n Oslo on December 10 for presentation of the Nobel Peace Award by Norway's King Olav. Dr. King accepted the Award not for himself, but as the representative of the Freedom Movement as a whole, saying in his Acceptance Speech: "I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally... [It is]...not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize."
