Today's Local Music: We Became Owls

Aug 3, 2015
Tamarind Free Jones



We Became Owls is an alternative Americana band from Oakland. Songwriter Andrew Blair and multi-instrumentalist Ross Warner began creating, writing and composing music together in middle school. Now they're joined by upright bassist Doug Keen, vocalist and banjo picker Kelly McFarling and either Andrew Laubacher or Kyle Caprista on drums.



On the August 18th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about efforts to use experimental drugs to combat the Ebola virus in West Africa. What are the implications of using experimental drugs? How do drugs move from the experimental stage to full approval? What are other ways we can regulate and support research for new drugs?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Building a more resilient economy with Bay Bucks

May 16, 2013
Bunches and Bits


Sergio Lub is walking me through the stockroom of his jewelry company’s headquarters in Martinez. All around the room, precious metal bracelets and rings nestle in cardboard boxes with labels like “Mardi Gras” and “Sage Bundle.”


Lub’s been making and designing jewelry for over 30 years, but I’m not here to talk with him about that. I’m here to learn about something else he’s been experimenting with for just as long – alternative economies, or as he puts it: “trying to find different forms of this human invention we call money.”

New and recent releases:  from the Irish traditional band Altan (pictured), singer-songwriter Richard Shindell, and the Bridge School Concerts 25th anniversary collection.  Plus an interview with blues singer-guitarist Eric Bibb who talks about his new CD "Deeper In The Well."  Saturday 3-5pm.
