Race and Policing; Vanishing Blues Band

Eric Hatfield and Perry Davis from our sister station WHYR in Baton Rouge talk about the events of the past few weeks and how they have used community radio to help the necessary dialogue about race and policing begin.

The Ames Progressive Alliance continues a conversation it started last week about these issues, with an all-star lineup of guests: Malik Burton and Julian Neely, ISU students involved in Black Lives Matters, pastor David Knight of New Birth Baptist Church, Dr. Anthony Jones, vice-principal of Ames Middle School, and Chuck Cychosz, chief of Ames Police.

Adam Brimeyer, manager at DG's Taphouse, presents the lineup for Sunday night, including Jordan Mayland and the Detonators (with several Ames personnel) and headliner Devin Frank Vanishing Blues Band. Devin Frank got his musical start playing with Poison Control Center (currently on hiatus), and shares some of his memories of PCC's heyday in Ames in the early 2000s.
