    Radio Specials Re:Sound The Night Show -- This special program presents an hour of stories about listening to the night, including "Lights Out." On the night of July 13, 1977, a complete blackout spread through all five boroughs of New York City. Right before the chaos and mayhem of that night began, two young DJs - Disco Wiz and Grandmaster Cassanova Fly - were spinning records in a duel on a busy corner in the Bronx. Then, everything went dark and some say hip-hop was born.

    Forum Should Paid Sick Leave Be Required in California? California workers who call in sick would be eligible for some pay under a bill which passed the state Assembly in May. The legislation, sponsored by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, would guarantee all workers a minimum of three days of paid sick leave per year. Although some cities including San Francisco already require employers to offer paid sick leave, there is no statewide mandate. The proposal, which now heads to the state Senate, is meeting stiff resistance from business groups who say it's a job killer.
