Secret Colours on Live From Studio 10 (aired April 2014)
63 plays

Chicago’s Secret Colours have been generating a national buzz around the release of their 2-part album Positive Distractions and their sound steeped in 60’s psychedelia and 90’s Britpop. With new album and mostly new members, comes a new fresh approach to songwriting but there’s still plenty of reverb on jangly guitar riffs and spacey organ sounding keys to make it one of Secret Colours’ best.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond. One hour of music and interview, all live. The show is hosted by Jesse Menendez, produced by Fyodor Sakhnovski and engineered by Adam Yoffe. Subscribe to the podcast here: bitly.com/vocaloLFS10

Practically Speaking Episode 48: The Immigrant Advantage
49 plays

practicallyspeaking-vocalo:

Is there truly a difference in the rates of success for the American-born children of recent immigrants versus Americans who are several generations removed from their immigrant roots? Among communities of color, this phenomenon of instilling specific cultural and ethnic values on American-born children is especially prevalent.

In this episode, we explored the distinct cultural differences between first generation children of immigrants and whether their cultural upbringing and norms have a palpable impact on their rates of academic and professional success.

Ruell Rogers, a professor at Northwestern, spoke about the differences between African American and Black Immigrant dichotomy. Alex Thibodeau conducted an interview with good friend, Harluxsh, who discussed the pressures from his Indian immigrant parents to succeed, and host Audra Wilson spoke with her Jamaican father, who shared his hopes and dreams for his two children and grandchildren.
