The Blues File from WXPN

Listen (approx. 7 minutes)

www.wxpn.org
Host Jonny Meister reviews Gaye Adegbalola's new album "Gaye Without Shame."
Adegbalola, who maintains a solo career and also works with Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women, takes on the struggle for equal rights for gays and same-sex couples. She notes similarities and differences between this challenge and the struggle for civil rights for African-Americans. She also manages to drop in some great blues love songs on the album as well.

The Rainbow Minute

Listen (1 minute)

www.wrir.org, Richmond
The Rainbow Minute is a radio show about gay and lesbian heroes, history and culture. Our series of one-minute episodes feature true stories about extraordinary gays and lesbians, past and present. Naturally, some episodes are devoted to those who made tremendous sacrifices in the fight for equality. And other episodes touch on the many intriguing facets of gay culture.

We're certain that our listeners will be inspired by these individual stories of courage, hope, compassion, intellect, artistry, wit, joy, and of course, love.

In a larger sense, The Rainbow Minute is a means of fighting homophobia, as we travel toward equality. Our weapon is this vast collection of heroes themselves, who have – without question – made this world a better place for everyone. Faced with this truth, we hope to challenge stereotypes, instill compassion, and make the entire gay community even prouder of who they are.

Judd Proctor and Brian Burns, Producers
The Rainbow Minute is heard Monday - Friday at 9:00am, 1:04pm and 4:29pm on WRIR - 97.3fm.

The Public Justice Center Video

In May 2011, Gaye was a part of the Public Justice Center's (PJC) 25th Anniversary Celebration. PJC is a nonprofit legal advocacy organization in Baltimore, MD, that seeks to enforce and expand the rights of people who suffer injustice because of their poverty or discrimination. The celebration was a show, a full blown production with the common theme of Justice. Many songs were from the front lines of the civil rights and labor movements; others were original creations and all were woven into a script describing the impact and purpose of the PJC.

This video, created byDru Bynum and Jamie Campbell of Shine Creative captures the spirit, energy and message of that magical night.
