Andrew Tint graduated from Kenyon College and wanted to pursue his passion for radio & media. When he came across a description of a solar-powered community radio station in southeast Iowa in an online publication called the Daily Yonder, he looked us up, liked what he saw, and gave KRUU a call. He asked if we'd consider an intern position for a year. Even though it was during the mad rush of preparing for the first annual FAIRfest, we were absolutely delighted to have Andrew join the KRUU.
Turns out, interviews he did for his KRUU show GENERATION whY led to the work he is now doing out in the Big Apple which you'll hear about if you tune in. James Moore caught up with Andrew and learn more about his position as executive producer for the Accountability Podcast with Nomiki Konst. Then we'll hear the latest program which I found absoilutely fascinating.
White males make up 31% of the population in the US but account for 65-70% of its 500,000 elected officials. Would more women in politics change the way we do politics and will they one day challenge the deeply entrenched 'old boy' network so prevalent today? Stay tuned and listen in...

The Wendy Clark Band is a Denver-based original rock band that has evolved from Tequila Mockingbird. Active on the Front Range music circuit and indie scene since 1996, Wendy is a singer, composer, rhythm guitarist, bandleader, independent-recording artist, manager, and promoter. Her music is classified under roots-rock but adds an unmistakable playful voice and infectious melody combined with modern philosophical meanderings and “been there, hated that” themes mixed with a twinge of nostalgia, that are catchy, powerful, and kept fresh by delving into multiple genres.
Wendy has released three critically-acclaimed full-length CDs under the moniker Tequila Mockingbird, has performed over 1,000 festivals and gigs regionally including A Taste of Colorado, Adams County Fair, The CHUN Peoples Fair (1998-present), toured in the Rockies into Wyoming and through New Mexico, appeared on live TV and radio (Denver's Channel 2 Evening News, KRFC FM, and 1190 AM), released dozens of videos (The Honeymoon and Catching On receiving tens of thousands of views on her YouTube), and opened at sold out shows for bands such as Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, The Samples, Bob Schneider, and Chris Daniels and The Kings. She has opened up for Tim McGraw at Fiddler’s Green, sat in with The Refreshments, Hazel Miller, and backed up Brian Blush (The Refreshments) and Jamon Scott (The Toluenes) as well as collaborated and recorded with bassist Rob Squires of Big Head Todd and the Monsters on UFO (1998). Wendy has also worked with award-winning sound engineers/producers Eric Shiveley (Alien-American 2004) and Bill Thomas (UFO 1998, Luck and Trouble 2010) and multi-GRAMMY recipient, David Glasser.

So I went back to the earlist produced recordings I have, and I selected a range of songs that span from 1927 up to 1966. Next week we will spend some time with 1966 and 1967 only, because I have a lot more music beginning in '67. We start the show with Dock Boggs and Frank Sinatra. Then there is a bunch of blues by Robert Johnson, Tampa Red, Muddy Waters, Liitle Willie John- like that. Then we are off to folk with The Fleetwoods and The Kingston Trio, jazz with Lou Donaldson and Dave Brubeck, and r & b with Ray Charles and Fats Domino. As we progress into the sixties, folks like The Animals, Johnny Rivers, and The Yardbirds show up. Join me for a real trip through time. Cool Breeze
This is an exciting movie weekend, with award-worthy new releases plus, "steampunk cool" The Boxtrolls comes to the Orpheum. "A family event movie from Laika, the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman that introduces audiences to a new breed of quirky, mischievous creatures."
Starring the voice talents of Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Simon Pegg and more. This is a perfect family/adult Halloween-time film: "A delightfully weird tale told in stop-motion animation; full of Rube Goldberg contraptions; bizarre angles, strange-looking characters, and a kind of fearlessness, an ability to gaze at darkness head-on; took years of blood, sweat and clay to come to life; combines heart with a streak of Roald Dahl's perversity; one to delight macabre children and adults alike."
Birdman, which is already getting Best Picture buzz: "I'm jazzed by every daring, devastating, howlingly funny, how'd-they-do-that minute in Birdman. Powered by Michael Keaton's pinballing tour de force, Alejandro González Iñárritu's cinematic whirlwind is an exhilarating high. No true movie lover would dare miss it." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.Also out- The Tale of Princess Kaguya. "Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies) revisits Japan's most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making." "A thing of endless visual beauty that seems to partake in a kind of pictorial minimalism but finds staggering possibilities for beautiful variation; embodies the ineffable beauty of life on Earth that is one of the film's main themes."12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Laika is the new Pixar. Boxtrolls are the new minions."
