** I was out of town this week due to having the awesome honor of being chosen to speak at TEDxOrlando 2012 - check them out at http://www.TEDxOrlando.com! In the meantime, here's one of our favorite radio shows from the FuseBox Radio Broadcast's vaults for folks to listen to and enjoy... **
This is a flashback episode of the FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of October 10, 2012 (original episode from the week of December 10, 2008) with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul music, news and commentary.
That week's commentary was on the finale of the 2nd OJ Simpson trial and why the Black American community could more or less not care about his sentencing due to being arrogant and non-thinking, how Black American athletes were not having a good week (Plaxico Burress, etc.), the passing of Hip-Hop MC and D.I.T.C. member Party Arty and some other things.
We also had an interview this week on the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with documentary director Kevin Booth of "American Drug War: The Last White Hope" (http://www.AmericanDrugWar.com).
Some topics covered in our talk include some of the history of the Drug War in America, some of the unfairness that's in the legal system for those who do illegal drugs (long prison terms, little rehabilitation programs for those who need them, racial and economic disparities with those arrested, etc.), what made some drugs illegal and some not in the eyes of the government, the ways the documentary was completed both on the record and undercover ways and some other interesting things.
We do not have new Black Agenda Report and Black University Radio Network (BURN) DIRECT EFX news segments on this week's broadcast due to our interview.
Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast over at our official blog, BlackRadioIsBack.com - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.
