Tenants gathered in the community room of Stonehenge Village, an Upper West Side rental complex, to hear about its new gym. Management explained that only market-rate tenants — fewer than 40 percent of the residents — would have access, Jean Green Dorsey, the president of the tenant association.“I had a room full of people going crazy,” said Ms. Dorsey, who has lived in the building since 1972 in a rent-stabilized unit.

Southside Johnny joins host Robin Milling to talk about his new CD Songs From The Barn. Branching out from the Asbury Jukes with The Poor Fools, it features a collection of styles from country to samba, bluegrass to honky tonk. Many of the songs are co-written with Jukes' keyboard player Jeff Kazee which John says he's most proud of to date.
He tells Robin the songs are inspired by experiences he's had with a touch of added color. Living in El Paso, Texas back in the 60s, he laments about love lost at the border in Mexicali Waltz. He says, 'we would cross the border to Juarez and try to find trouble and we usually did find it. There were all these beautiful girls there and I was attracted to many of them. We were young and wild so my fantasies would take over and I would dream about these girls for decades to come and write about them in these songs!'
After almost 40 years with the Jukes, The Poor Fools gives Southside the chance to play for fun in smaller venues like converted churches. John recalls the old days playing schools, when his dressing room was a kindergarden classroom. 'I just remember sitting on the little chairs! You know you take this stuff humourously because otherwise you'd really get down. It's some of the things you go through just to get on stage for a couple of hours and make music.' John doesn't measure his success by longevity. He looks to the future and will 'keep riding the train until it stops.' Although he may consider looking back on it all when he's 80!
The show will explore the hardships that many working Americans face daily earning minimum pay. These Americans are often victims of systematic forms of usary and encounter difficulties rising above poverty lines. We will examine ways to transform the lives of the working poor while exploring the biblical principles of tithing, giving and receiving.

This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie addresses the troubling and ongoing challenge of poverty in America. Though the media and our national conversation regularly neglects the harsh realities of our nation’s poor, poverty remains a critical issue affecting an alarming number of families and individuals. So here, in 2014, who are these individuals? What do they look like and how old are they? And, most importantly, are we ready to face the issue?
Joining us to address some of these challenging questions is Peter Edelman, Professor of Law at Georgetown Law Center and Faculty Co-Director of the Georgetown Center on Poverty, Inequality and Public Policy; Angela Glover Blackwell, CEO of PolicyLink, a research and action institute advancing economic and social equity; and Eric Hauser, President of The Hauser Group, an organization committed to the public interest. Together we will take a close look at this serious issue, its current state and its impact while discussing ways of tackling the problem.
It is time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson... pull up a chair.

In this first of three episodes, we will look at the War on the Poor from the perspective of a particularly pernicious battlefield which crosses all available classifications of our American citizens: The Battle For Equality.
This battle, perhaps second only to our final battlefield (The Battle For Justice) to conclude this investigative series, looks at the attempts and intentions of those who suffer on this battlefield, and those who put them there with the intent to keep them irrelevant, insignificant, and less worthy of the rights every American citizen deserves.
We hope you will join us in the conversation.
We're on the air!
We'll see YOU there!
