    America Reframed [#202] Radio Unnameable Legendary radio personality Bob Fass revolutionized late night FM radio by serving as a cultural hub for music, politics and audience participation for nearly 50 years. Long before today's innovations in social media, Fass utilized the airwaves for mobilization encouraging luminaries and ordinary listeners to talk openly and take the program in surprising directions. Fass and his committed group of friends, peers, and listeners proved time and time again through massive, planned meetups and other similar events that radio was not a solitary experience but rather a platform to unite communities of like-minded, or even just open-minded, individuals without the dependence on large scale corporate backing. Radio Unnameable is a visual and aural collage that pulls from Bob Fass's immense archive of audio from his program, film, photographs, and video that has been sitting dormant until now. Revealing the underexposed world of independent radio, the film illustrates the intimate relationship Fass and, by extension, WBAI formed with their listeners that were strong enough to maintain the station?s role as one of the most successful listener-sponsored programs in the United States. duration 1:56:45   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Teaching Channel Presents [#301] Inside Common Core Classrooms We'll begin the new season of Teaching Channel Presents in classrooms where teachers are already integrating the Common Core.

And, we'll visit three lively English classes where the Common Core emphasis is on speaking and listening skills. duration 59:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Moyers & Company [#237H] Inequality for All This week marks both the 5th anniversary of the fiscal meltdown that almost tanked the world economy and the 2nd anniversary of Occupy Wall Street, the movement that sparked heightened public awareness of income inequality. Yet the crisis is worse than ever - in the first 3 years of the recovery, 95% of the economic gains have gone only to the top 1% of Americans. And the share of working people in the US who define themselves as lower class is at its highest level in 4 decades.
    More and more are fighting back. According to Robert Reich, Bill Clinton's Secretary of Labor: "The core principle is that we want an economy that works for everyone, not just for a small elite. We want equal opportunity, not equality of outcome. We want to make sure that there's upward mobility again, in our society and in our economy."
    Reich joins Moyers this week to discuss a new film, Inequality for All, opening in theatres across the country next week. Directed by Jacob Kornbluth, the film aims to be a game-changer in our national discussion of income inequality. Reich, who Time magazine called one of the best cabinet secretaries of the 20th century, stars in this dynamic, witty, and entertaining new film. Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley, is the author of 13 books, including The Work of Nations, available in 22 languages; Aftershock and Supercapitalism, both best sellers; and his latest, Beyond Outrage: What Has Gone Wrong with Our Economy and our Democracy, and How to Fix It.

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1703] METHODIST GAY MARRIAGE CONTROVERSY - As gay marriage ceremonies remain forbidden in the United Methodist Church, Betty Rollin speaks with Rev. Tom Ogletree, a United Methodist scholar and former Dean of the Yale Divinity School and the Drew Divinity School, in New Jersey. He faces a possible church trial for officiating at the marriage of his gay son. Rev. Ogletree says there is "no concept of homosexuality or sexual orientation at all" in scripture. But Rev. Rob Renfroe of the Woodland United Methodist Church, near Houston, insists "there is not any passage in scripture that is condoning or accepting of that practice."
    THE LINDISFARNE GOSPELS - Fred de Sam Lazaro reports from Durham in Northeast England on the Lindisfarne Gospels, the first surviving translations of the four Christian gospels from Latin into old English, 1300 years ago - a landmark in Christianity's migration to the British Isles.
    CHAGALL'S JEWISH JESUS - Marc Chagall is well known for his whimsical paintings portraying Jewish shtetl life in Russia. What is less well known are his paintings of a crucified Jewish Jesus. Throughout his career, he painted over 100 of them, especially during the Holocaust. The Jewish Museum in New York, where we spoke with Senior Curator Susan Tumarkin Goodman, is having a special exhibit of these paintings.

    THIS WEEK in Northern California [#2444H] August 23, 2013 OAKLAND TRIES TO EVEN THE ODDS FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN BOYS
    In a collaboration between KQED and the San Francisco Chronicle series Even Odds, we offer an in-depth look at the daunting challenges faced by African American males in Oakland, and the city's attempt to address them. 3 years ago, the Oakland Unified School District faced an alarming statistic - more than half of its African American boys would not graduate. The troubling dropout rate had many factors at play: poverty, crime, high suspension rates and rising absenteeism. The district responded by opening the Office of African American Male Achievement. Its mission is to improve academic outcomes for black boys by pairing them with black men. While race-based, community mentorship is not new, for a public school system it was controversial. The early results are encouraging, but it remains to be seen whether this novel approach will actually work. The program begins with a documentary segment, followed by a panel discussion. Host: Joshua Johnson.
    Guests: Jill Tucker, San Francisco Chronicle; Tiago Robinson, Oakland High School; Pedro Noguera, New York University.
