Time is not counted from daylight, but from Midnite.

If you haven't heard the sounds of reggae band extraordinaire, Midnite, get up and listen. Much in the same way Bob put reggae in the heads and pulses of the globe, Midnite are revolutionaries for the times in their own right. Straight from St. Croix, followed by a six year stint in DC, the churchical expression of their word, sound and power is distinct, remarkable and fluid. Dynamic brothers, Ron and Vaugn Benjamin are the lead innovators of lyrics, vocals and instruments. Their tracks consistently speak of political, social, and spiritual Irations as well as blessings and praises of Jah and Rastafari. Their sound and brilliance will consistantly leave you upful, begging for more. 
Crucial Roots will be showcasing the genius of Midnite and nine of their fabulous albums. Impossible to do in an hour, so I won't try. I've made this a two part series- starting this Sunday and concluding next Sunday. Enjoy*
Wake up and listen!!!

- In Depth with Erika Richards - Discussion on CAFOs

60:58 minutes (55.82 MB) Stereo 44kHz 128Kbps (CBR)

Yesterday on "In Depth With Erika Richards", we only skimmed the surface of a topic that is both emotional and complex.  In the studio today, we invited three guests to discuss the issue of CAFOs, or concentrated animal feeding operations, and their impact on both the environment and economy locally and statewide.  The four of us tiptoed around an issue that everyone seems to have an opinion about. No...not just an opinion...but a passionate opinion that defines quality of life on all levels.

My guests included:

   - Ron Sieren, a local small hog farmer and outside salesman for Reiff Grain and Feed;

   - Jim Flinspach, a grain farmer and president of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau; and

   - Jim Rubis, President of Jefferson County Farmers and Neighbors, an organization founded to run interference on the proliferation of large corporate hog operations in the county and state.
