Larry Azrin is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his first ever show on WMBR, by playing a few of the tracks he played on his very first WMBR show (Lost & Found, on January 17th, 1996) and some Lost & Found-era tracks that charted at #20 on the Hot-100 Billboard singles charts and #120 on the Bubbling Under Billboard singles charts. Mostly, though, he is playing the same mix of birthdays (Ernie K-Doe, Mick Green of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates), recent deaths (William Guest, lifetime 'Pip' in Gladys Night & The Pips; Stevie Wright, lead singer of the Easybeats; Lemmy of The Rockin' Vickers, Sam Gopal and Hawkwind; 50s sax player Joe Houston; R&B singers Otis Clay and Clarence Reid; pre-Eagles Glen Frey), listener requests and new material to the WMBR record library that he's been doing for the last twenty years.
Rachel Price an Associate Professor in the Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures program at Princeton University.
Price is the author of Planet/Cuba: Art, Culture, and the Future of the Island: Transformations in Cuban art, literature and culture in the post-Fidel era (2015 Verso), which explores how art and literature have responded to the massive transformation in Cuba over the past decade.
The environment is under threat, and the culture feels the strain of new forms of consumption. Price examines how art and literature have responded to a new moment, one both more globalized and less exceptional; more concerned with local quotidian worries than international alliances; more threatened by the depredations of planetary capitalism and climate change than by the vagaries of the nation???s government.

Moonbox Productions, nominated for numerous IRNE and Elliot Norton Awards, is thrilled to present the gritty, sexy jazz musical, The Wild Party. A musical by Michael John LaChiusa and George C. Wolfe, The Wild Party tells the story of vaudeville vixen “Queenie” and the party she is throwing for her eclectic entourage of friends. The booze and flirtations flow freely, until the long night of debauchery leads to the sobering reminder that no party lasts forever. LaChiusa’s sensual and captivating score brings to vivid life this story based on the 1928 narrative poem by Joseph Moncure March.

A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation directed by Akira Kurosawa,Throne of Blood sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of Blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience (Source: The Criterion Collection).

Regardless of whether or not any one person may know what to do about segregation and oppression, it’s better to protest than to accept injustice.” –Rosa Parks (1971)
Pictures coming out of Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014 were eerily similar to iconic images seared in our collective, national memory from the 1950s. What does that similarity show us? How should we understand not only Ferguson but the onslaught of violence against Black men, women and children that have continued to embroil this nation in the year that’s followed? In this presentation and dialogue we will explore the ways lesser-known perspectives—religious and secular—on the Civil Rights Movements may help us better understand our current the racial climate. More importantly, the chastening wisdom and powerful courage of the stories—like the undertold story of Ms. Rosa Parks—can help us engage the most critical question: where do we go from here?

Audrey Hepburn plays Jo Stockton, a tomboyish Greenwich Village bookstore clerk enamored with the French pseudo-philosophy of "Empathicalism" (aka Existentialism). After being discovered by photographer Dick Avery and Maggie Prescott, the editor-in-chief of Quality Magazine, she is whisked to Paris, divested of her intellectual ambitions and transformed into the walking embodiment of the “Quality Woman.” The film gleefully sends up almost every 1950s cliché. By the final scene, Jo literally floats away on a river raft into the gauzy distance of a magazine wonderland wearing a Givenchy wedding dress and embracing her photographer, played by Fred Astaire. Kay Thompson, in her only starring role as editrix Prescott, exhorts the women of America, “no, make it the women everywhere,” to “Think Pink!” Astaire shines in a toreador jazz dance that’s among his best work on screen. But the three of them are glorious in the film’s central musical number, "Bonjour, Paris!" a hymn to the "Great American Tourist." Amid picture-postcard views of the Arc de Triumphe, Notre Dame and les Invalides, Thompson and Hepburn sing wonderingly, "Is it real? Am I here?" No! This Paris is a figment of the postwar American imagination made possible by the technological powers of VistaVision.

Film screening and Q&A with actor Roger Guenveur Smith Directed by Spike Lee, 2001
Adapted for the screen from Roger Guenveur Smiths Obie-award winning play of the same name, the film sheds light on the controversial life and times of the co-founder of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, drawing on his unpublished manuscripts, recorded interviews and correspondences. As one of the most volatile participants in the era of the Civil Rights Movement, Newton can be seen as a microcosm for issues as diverse as community service and violent actions taken in the name of justice. All the complications, ambiguities, and moral quandaries bound up in Americas ongoing struggle with racism are captured in this virtuoso performance. Peabody Awards
