"My younger sister just told me she wants to be a boy. She is 15. I am 17. We are close. I don't think she knows what she is talking about. How do you tell if it its just a teenage fad or if its for real? "

42:15 Special Message
43:10 Announcements: Boston area & National events
45:15 Music has long served as a trenchant vehicle for political critique and dissenting views of our world, and never more so than today. Adrienne Torf, musician and long-time musical collaborator with renowned African American author and activist June Jordan, talks with us about their work together, and their recent CD "Collaboration". Jordan was one of most published African Americans in history, and she and Torf performed live together many times. The songs we discuss and play brilliantly - and entertainingly - showcase their work together.

Songs played:

  • 49:59 - Interracial Marriage (1:01)
  • 54:24 - So Hot (2:12)
  • 64:00 - Grenada (3:42)
  • 71:33 - Atlangic Coast Reggae (3:52)
  • 77:38 - Poem to Take Back the Night (4:26)
