Wendy from Family Matters is doing a radio for kids workshop!

sorry that its just me and the music library as the theme today!
[ ] STN ID, Read Show Description from blog

[ ] Mention Migrant Matters,
a CFRU show
that navigates through the interconnected issues that limit the freedom of people to move across borders (of all kinds) and stay wherever they choose. Mary brings into focus the individual faces and unique stories of migrant workers, "non-status" people, and racialized working-class immigrants. We share interviews about matters that immigration policy imposers don't want to remedy and dig below the mainstream perspective. The show sheds light on the topics of: race, class, gender, forced migration, displacement, immigration, citizenship, criminalization, corporate and state greed, and abuse and well-being in our communities. Airing every fourth Friday (6-7pm) of the month. I've also heard one rebroadcast a couple times this week and thought i would suggest to horse lovers to download it from the archive Saturday 8-9 am.  The interview brings to light the undocumented labourers that are common on some superwealthy, competitive horse farms.  The media expert's description of colic makes it sound like an affliction of only the high performance horse, which colic is not, is it a serious risk for ALL horses regardless of value, but the points made about the violation of the workers rights in terms of caring for the animals is VERY well made.

do I have a pony daze blog entry to read where Jill is counted in the worker tally that defines the ranchers operation "how many mexicans do you have?"

I also love Beyond the Ballot box

[ ] 4:28 Nothing But A Good Ride, Lyle Lovett
I listened to this song in my earbuds recently and decided it was a song about a trucker or tour-bus stranded musician.  Until reading the New York Times article sent to me by Lyle's On-Tour PR person...  I learned from that same piece that the production sounds I didn't quite "get" on the tune Natural Forces feature Reining announcer Keith Bradley

Lyle Lovett’s love of horses is equal to his love of music.
"In terms of our horses, I love them all for different reasons."

"I feel so fortunate to be able to learn from people who are the very best in the world... It is a privilege to be able to ask them questions and listen to what they say. When you watch them ride, you see that what they say works.. Then you get on your own horse they’ve been working with and you really see how it works. It’s a privilege when you can spend time around people who are interested in quality – people who do everything they do to the best of their ability, in order to get a good result. That’s something I find easy to admire in people – when someone’s trying his best,” " -- Lyle Lovett

I forgot to bring that live Old Medicine Crow album with the 2nd track "My Pony is Gonna Ride Again"
