Today, Host Rob Lorei speaks with September Penn, director of Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement: The Power of Song, a musical production centered around the freedom songs of the Civil Rights Era. Many of these songs were adapted from religious spirituals and crafted to carry the message of equal rights for those who sung them.Song of the Civil Rights Movement will be performing at the Palladium Theater on Jan. 10th and 11th. 

Then we have Ladd Everitt, Director of Communications with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, to talk about President Obama’s new plan for executive orders that would tighten current gun control laws, namely a loophole that allows the sale of weapons at venues like gun shows without a requiring a background check. The visibly upset president said at a press conference following the announcement that the thought of the lives loss in mass shootings “makes me mad”.
