    KQED NEWSROOM [#336H] KQED Newsroom Special: Stand Up San Quentin Stand Up San Quentin
    Once known only as a violent and dangerous place, San Quentin State Prison now has some of the most innovative rehabilitation programs in the California prison system.

    In this KQED Newsroom special, Stand Up San Quentin, we get an inside look at a program where inmates write and perform their own stories.

    "I'll never forget my first morning at San Quentin," says inmate Emile DeWeaver in his monologue.

    "When you're in prison for so long, you get used to one costume. And it's blue," says inmate Azraal Ford to an audience of fellow prisoners. "We all look like Smurfs in here."

    We'll also hear from Dionne Wilson, a victims' rights advocate whose husband was murdered and who found healing by volunteering in prison, and from former San Quentin inmate Troy Williams, who sheds light on life after prison.

    Carole King Tapestry Live from Hyde Park, London Carole King has, in the span of her almost 60-year career, defined herself as one of the most prolific and preeminent songwriters of her generation. Her breakthrough album Tapestry broke records and stayed on the US charts for six years; since then, she has gone on to win four Grammy awards and become widely known and accepted as the most successful female songwriter of the second half of the 20th century. In the summer of 2016 at the iconic annual Summer Festival at Hyde Park in London, King performed Tapestry in its entirety. Songs include "I Feel the Earth Move", "So Far Away ", "It's Too Late", and "You've Got A Friend". duration 56:55   STEREO TVG

    Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Concert It was 50 years ago, in 1965, when Arlo Guthrie took out the trash following a Thanksgiving dinner that "couldn't be beat". It started a chain of events including Arlo's arrest for littering, court appearance, and rejection from military service depicted in his hilarious and iconic song, Alice's Restaurant. The song (an 18 minute musical monologue) went platinum, spawned a full length motion picture, and became an American tradition ubiquitously played on hundreds of radio stations at Thanksgiving.
    In this program, Arlo deftly performs the song for the first time in over a decade and receives a standing ovation from his delighted fans. He also plays other material from the early part of his career, his hits and two new arrangements of previously unreleased lyrics by his father, the legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie. It's a heartfelt evening that examines Arlo's life through his music, which is interlaced with remarkable and often humorous stories.
