Yolo County Womens History Month (02/22/18)

Kate Mawdsley shares the story of "Yolo County Women's History Month" and its current work supporting book purchases for local libraries and Yolo County Archives regarding women in and around this area.  Lots of reminiscences about Lois and Kate's personal experiences with the 'women's movement' and changes in the University and society from the 1970s thru today.  National Women's History Month this year's theme is: "Nevertheless She Persisted -- Honoring women who fight against all forms of distrimination against women".  That derives from Senator Mitch McConnell's complaint about Senator Elizabeth Warren's continuing to read from a letter written by Coretta King after he had told her to stop -- "... She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless she persisted." (He eventually forced her to stop by cutting her off.) That phrase has now become a by-word with many women and a call to us to also persist when we are told not to speak out.

Jazz part 2 -- Women Jazz Singers! -- Back-to-back shows with Don Shor (2/15/18)

Back from last week, Don Shor continues his sharing of Jazz with post-WWII changes and the rising to prominence of women jazz singers -- in particular Ella Fitgerald, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, and Sara Vaughn.  This show has lots MORE music and far less talk.

Lois' "That's Life" Jazz segments: 1 Feb 2018 and 8 Feb 2018

Don Shor's "Jazz After Dark" show: weekly on Tuesdays from 8:00-9:00 pm; repeats on Mondays from 11 to midnight.

 

Jazz part 1 -- From the Begining, with Don Shor (2/8/18)

Back-toback shows with Don Shor about JAZZ!  Not the apple -- that would be on the "Davis Garden Show" (where Don and Lois are co-hosts) -- but the music.  Don hosts a weekly KDRT radio show on Tuesday evenings called "Jazz After Dark" and agreed to come today to share with us some of the history of jazz -- up to about WWII  So sit back and listen to the man and the music.

PS: This was so wonderful, Lois asked him to come back next week and do another show focusing on women jazz artists.

Yolo County Landfill's 'Big Blue Barn' (01/11/18)

The Yolo County Landfill has many programs to reduce-reuse-recycle and one of the newest is the 'Big Blue Barn'. Manager explains how diverting use-able items that would otherwise go into the landfill not only saves us space; it also makes things available for VERY low prices AND provides funding for other recycling programs.  Every other month there is one weekend when folks can buy; but EVERY day one can drop things off. Here the details in this lively interview.
