“For the People”
Tune in to 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco (www.kpoo.com), Tuesday 4 April, 4pm – 6pm, PDT, “For the People.” We remember the prolific speech given by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence, as well as the assassination of “the king of love”. Got new music from Mali, with Oumou Sangare’s “Yere Faga,” the lead single from her much anticipated latest album, “Mogoya,” to be released May 19th. April is International Poetry Month, so we feature three poets: Paradise Free Jah Love, Jessica Care Moore (www.jessicacaremoore.com), and the late, great, Amiri Baraka (www.amiribaraka.com). As we continue to highlight this year’s 15th Annual Oakland International Film Festival (www.oiff.org), expect interviews from two filmmakers: Robbin Rae (“Oakland in Blue”), and Donna C. Roberts (“Yemanja: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil”). Also, since April is Jazz Appreciation Month, “For the People” shares live recordings from this year’s Winter JazzFest (www.winterjazzfest.com) held in NYC back in January. That and more, including several ticket giveaways, Tuesday the 4th April, 4pm – 6pm, PDT, on 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco (www.kpoo.com), “For the People.” Produced and hosted by Safi wa Nairobi (email@example.com).
