24 plays

vocaloreclaimedsoul:

The melody for 1967’s Bacharach/David classic “The Look of Love” was inspired by Bond Girl Ursula Andress; and that iconic melody has inspired countless artists to record their own versions of the song. Reclaimed Soul’s Ayana Contreras brings us a selection of soulful vintage covers of “The Look of Love”. Plus, we hear groovy covers of other Bacharach compositions, as well (like “Walk on By” and “I Say a Little Prayer”).

For fresh episodes of Reclaimed Soul, listen in Thursdays at 8pm CST on vocalo.org, or tune in to 89.5fm (NW Indy) and 90.7fm (CHI)

The Morning AMp Talks Street Harassment
29 plays

morningamp:

Brian Babylon and guest host Susie An talked about street harassment and one woman’s efforts to combat the practice by handing out cards to catcallers that explain why the practice is harmful. Cassandra Gaddo later joined the conversation during the Council of Feminist Thought.

“I think one of the biggest things that can help this is male allies. If you see it happening, if you see your friend doing it, if it comes up in conversation, be the person who says ‘You know what guys? That’s actually really threatening to women. It’s not cool.’”

Celebraton Playground in Bronzeville: When Local Youth Want to Make a Difference

morningamp:

Every Friday, we take phone calls from listeners to let them rant and critique on the happenings of their work week. But during this particular Critic for a Minute Friday, we had caller Maxine from Lakeview tell us about a community project her children created. For her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah celebration, rather than a huge blow -out party, her daughter wanted to team up with a Bronzeville church to build a playground for local children. They are now in the process of fundraising and are looking for the community to help. If you would like to read more about this project and would like to contribute, you can visit their website.
