Fri. 7/6 8a: Peace Talks Radio: When we talk about music that promotes and celebrates peace, hip hop often gets left out of the conversation. Critics speculate about the genre's negative influences, from hypersexual music videos to lyrics that glamorize guns and drugs. A recent Washington Post headline quoted jazz musician Wynton Marsalis calling popular hip hop "more damaging than a statue of Robert E. Lee." But what about the positive impacts the music has had on countless fans?

President-Elect Donald Trump is still talking building of a border wall and spurring speculation about deportations around the United States. Local civil rights groups are uniting to march for immigrant rights this weekend.

KUNM Call In Show Thu. 9/4 8a: Fifty years ago this week, Art Schreiber was flying across the country with The Beatles on their first grand U.S. tour. Also in the late 1960's, Schreiber covered Kennedy, LBJ, Martin Luther King Jr. and Washington politics. In the 1980's he ran radio stations in Albuquerque even after going suddenly blind. 

Guest host Paul Ingles welcomes Art Schreiber to tell stories about all of it and share his rare recordings with The Beatles. We'd like to hear from you! Email callinshow@kunm.org, post your comments online or call in live during the show.
