Interview to air Friday 3pm | Sat 11am

Did you know Iowa is home of the oldest mosque in America?

In response to a distrurbing rise in reports of Islamophobia, talk of Muslim travel bans and the new administration's emphasis on radical "Islamic" terrorism, Imam Taha Tawil, the leader of North America's oldest mosque, has scheduled a multifaith rally for this Sunday, March 26th at 3pm to encircle the Mother Mosque of America in Cedar Rapids.

Enjoy a conversation about the rally and related topics. Imam Taha stresses that it's not as much a Muslim rally as a rally for Americans of all faiths and even non-faiths to stand for the Constitution, the freedom to practice religion, assembly and exercise free speech which are birthrights of all Americans.

SOUL SHERPA in the House!

Band performs this Saturday, Feb 25th at the Depot Brewery 8:30pm $5 cover.

Soul Sherpa, a 9-piece original horn band, was pieced together from the remains of members of a jazz combo from Kirkwood Community College.

After playing music with each other daily, there was such an indescribable connection that we just couldn't leave behind. Having similar inspirations and aspirations, Soul Sherpa emerged.

According to Ian Draves, the band's bassist, "We strive to bring the groove from our hearts to the audience, playing a mixture of R&B, Funk, Pop, Jazz, andSoul music."

Big weekend for movies with the Oscars Sunday night. With six Oscar nominations Manchester By The Sea posterManchester By The Sea is one of three films considered award favorites, along with Moonlight and La La Land.  My son Shane and I saw Manchester By The Sea on DVD. I've highly anticiapted this film since, along with Shane, I resonate with writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's potent emotions about loss of family. Shane and I both loved it, and he agreed to record Filmosophers with us Thursday (can't do live during school :) Among other things he said Manchester By The Sea comes closest to his own experience.

We'll also give our Oscar thoughts and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday morning 11:30.

Lee - If you could take one guy to an island with you and you knew you'd be safe cause he is the best man, he's going to keep you happy, if it was between me and your father, who would you take?
