730: Into the COVID ICU, 7/24/2021

From Reveal | Part of the Reveal Weekly series | 59:00


This week marks a grim milestone: 500,000 Americans have died of COVID-19. Kaiser Health News reporter Jenny Gold spent eight months following one first-year medical resident working on the front lines of the pandemic.  

Dr. Paloma Marin-Nevarez graduated from the Stanford University medical school in June, right before the virus began its second major surge. She’s one of more than 30,000 new doctors who started residencies in 2020. Just weeks after graduating, Marin-Nevarez began training as an ER doctor at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, one of the areas in California hardest hit by the pandemic. 

Listeners follow Marin-Nevarez as she faces the loneliness and isolation of being a new doctor, working 80 hours a week in the era of masks and social distancing. She also witnesses the inequality of the pandemic, with Latino, Black and Native American people dying of COVID-19 at much higher rates than White people. Marin-Nevarez finds herself surrounded by death and having to counsel families about the loss of loved ones. We view the pandemic through the eyes of a rookie doctor, finding her footing on the front lines of the virus.

10-18: The Apology: Love Means Having to Say You’re Sorry, 8/4/2021

From Bioneers | Part of the Bioneers - Revolution From the Heart of Nature series | 28:30

307_nr1_5695_small They say love means never having to say you’re sorry. But what if that popular aphorism from the 1960’s is wrong and that love precisely means having to say you’re sorry? Can an apology release the trauma, grief, rage and disfigurement arising from past abuse? But what if the perpetrator does not apologize? Can you still resolve or reconcile the trauma and hurt? How? These are some of the agonizing questions that the artist, playwright, performer and activist Eve Ensler, now known as V chose to face to resolve her own relationship with her abusive late father. She did it by writing a book, The Apology. In writing it, she tried to imagine being her father. Who was he? What allowed him to do such terrible harms? Could she free herself from this prison of the past? Could she free both of them?

OHR158: OHR Presents: Outlaw Country, 7/26/2021

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Bdb_prx_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, outlaw country music icons the legendary Billy Don Burns and his protege Josh Morningstar recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with these artistic outlaws.

As country music moved towards a more slick commercial “Nashville sound” in the 1970s, some of its most notable artists bucked the trend.  Influential country musicians such as Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings fought back against the major studios and won the right to record their music the way they wanted.  With its roots in blues, honky tonk, rockabilly, and rock & roll, outlaw country has become a musical genre all its own.  

In Stone County, Arkansas, we have a legendary outlaw singer-songwriter right here in our community.  Since the early days of outlaw country, Billy Don Burns has been a go to songwriter for artists like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.  Now in his 70s, Billy Don is still at it.  BDB crisscrosses the country on his Harley Davidson while producing hit songs recorded by country music legacy Shooter Jennings, rising country music star Cody Jinks, and many others.  Also featured on this episode of OHR is Billy Don’s protege Josh Morningstar.  An up and coming outlaw, Josh Morningstar has also had hit songs recorded by Cody Jinks.

“Billy Don Burns is one of the few remaining original outlaw country music singer songwriters.  This long and hard road paved with a honky tonk reality has taken him from Stone County, Arkansas and around the world touring for the past fifty years.  He has been described as The Warrior Poet who has gained the respect of some of the greatest songwriters including Billy Joe Shaver, David Lynn Jones, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson.  Some of BDB’s critically acclaimed albums are ‘Desperate Men’ with Hank Cochran, and “Heroes, Friends and Other Troubled Souls” with Hank Cochran, Willie Nelson, and Tanya Tucker.  Johnny Paycheck, Willie, Connie Smith, Mel Tillis, and Sammy Kershaw have recorded his songs.  A few artists that have recently recorded his songs are Cody Jinks, Colter Wall, and Whitey Morgan.  Other BDB albums are ‘Graveyard in Montgomery,’ ‘Train Called Lonesome,’ and the live album produced by Shooter Jennings in Joshua Tree, California called ‘A Night in Room 8,’ the room where Gram Parsons died.  The newest album ‘The Country Blues,’ is BDB’s latest effort.” - The Hollywood Times

“A curious and fresh combination of grit and humor, Josh Morningstar is knocking down stereotypes with his worn boots and unforgettable raspy voice. He is a small-town boy that originally hails from Funkstown, Maryland, and he carries those roots in a suitcase with him everywhere he goes. His small-town charm is evident in the way he greets people, and in the conversational way that he weaves the stories of his life into his music.

“In front of the bright lights and behind the microphone isn't where Morningstar feels most at home. Named the 2018 Texas Radio Songwriter of the Year, he and his Kristofferson signed guitar have knocked out melodies in dingy hotels all across the country. He’s written songs alongside Kendell Marvel, Channing Wilson, Autumn McEntire, and many more. Morningstar was also the writer of several Cody Jinks songs, including his #1 hit “Must Be The Whiskey.” - https://joshmorningstar.com  
In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers a 1975 archival recording of Ozark original Uncle Floyd Holland performing the traditional tune “Nellie Grey,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Author, folklorist and songwriter Charley Sandage presents an historical portrait of the people, events and indomitable spirit of Ozark culture that resulted in the creation of the Ozark Folk Center State Park and its enduring legacy of music and craft.  In this episode, Charley describes the Ozark journey of famed folk song collector Alan Lomax.
