10:00 AM
Moyers & Company How Public Power Can Defeat Plutocrats This week, Lawrence Lessig and Zephyr Teachout return to talk further about the corrupting influence of money in politics, a subject both have studied as scholars and fought against as reformers. Government has become a clearinghouse for corporations and plutocrats with deep pockets to buy the politicians who grease the wheels for lucrative contracts and easy regulation. It's all pay for play, and look the other way. Consider this from the watchdog Sunlight Foundation: From 2007 to 2012, two hundred corporations spent almost $6 billion for lobbying and campaign contributions. And they received more than $4 trillion in government contracts and other forms of assistance. That's why K Street is lobbying's road to Paradise. Now that the midterm elections are over, it's payback time, with the newly elected Congress ready to deliver to those who invested well in their chosen candidates. Lawrence Lessig teaches at Harvard Law School and made his reputation as an expert on the Internet. He started the Mayday SuperPac, raising millions for congressional candidates who vowed to fight for campaign finance reform. All but two of them lost - but the fight continues. He tells Bill Moyers, "When we look at the systematic way in which our representatives are responsive not to the people alone, but increasingly to the funders exclusively, then that is an obvious corruption... This is not a Democratic issue. This is not a Republican issue. This is an American issue." Zephyr Teachout, who teaches at Fordham Law School, ran for Governor of New York, trying to rouse the public against corruption in state government. She got more than a third of the vote in the Democratic primary. Teachout also is the author of Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United. "When you talk about the corruption in Congress, people are talking about the same thing that Madison was talking about," she says, "this sense that our public servants are just serving themselves. They're running away with the resources of our country."

Infinity Hall Live Jonathan Edwards INFINITY HALL LIVE showcases veteran folk singer/songwriter Jonathan Edwards, best known for his 1971 classic "Sunshine." The song - a fierce proclamation of protest and independence set to deceptively upbeat music - became an anthem for numerous young people who opposed the Vietnam War. Today, Edwards seems more comfortable as a laid-back troubadour than a political radical. Often performing on stage barefoot (as he does at Infinity Hall), Edwards demonstrates an expertise with the guitar, mandolin, and accordion to create his own brand of acoustic folk-rock. His heart-felt lyrics and easy-going style continue to please his loyal fans as well as win over new ones. Edwards and his band - Moondi Klein on guitar, Charlie Rose on banjo, Tom Snow on piano and Joe Walsh on mandolin - perform songs primarily from his 2011 album, My Love Will Keep, such as the stunning a cappella rendition of "This Island Earth." But he doesn't disappoint his longtime fans and offers exuberant performances of the classics "Sunshine" and "Shanty," the latter which came to be known as a "Friday song" for many radio stations who would play it every Friday night at 5 to kick off the weekend. "I love playing rooms like this," Edwards says of Infinity Hall. "[It's like] we're playing in a big guitar ...or a Steinway grand piano. It feels like we're inside something like that and the music just vibrates and lives very much in a place like this."Song List"Surrounded""How Long""Crazy Texas Woman""Sometimes in the Morning""My Love Will Keep""Freewheeler""Sailor's Prayer""Johnny Blue Horizon""Sunshine""This Island Earth""Shanty""Don't Cry Blue"

Moyers & Company How Public Power Can Defeat Plutocrats This week, Lawrence Lessig and Zephyr Teachout return to talk further about the corrupting influence of money in politics, a subject both have studied as scholars and fought against as reformers. Government has become a clearinghouse for corporations and plutocrats with deep pockets to buy the politicians who grease the wheels for lucrative contracts and easy regulation. It's all pay for play, and look the other way. Consider this from the watchdog Sunlight Foundation: From 2007 to 2012, two hundred corporations spent almost $6 billion for lobbying and campaign contributions. And they received more than $4 trillion in government contracts and other forms of assistance. That's why K Street is lobbying's road to Paradise. Now that the midterm elections are over, it's payback time, with the newly elected Congress ready to deliver to those who invested well in their chosen candidates. Lawrence Lessig teaches at Harvard Law School and made his reputation as an expert on the Internet. He started the Mayday SuperPac, raising millions for congressional candidates who vowed to fight for campaign finance reform. All but two of them lost - but the fight continues. He tells Bill Moyers, "When we look at the systematic way in which our representatives are responsive not to the people alone, but increasingly to the funders exclusively, then that is an obvious corruption... This is not a Democratic issue. This is not a Republican issue. This is an American issue." Zephyr Teachout, who teaches at Fordham Law School, ran for Governor of New York, trying to rouse the public against corruption in state government. She got more than a third of the vote in the Democratic primary. Teachout also is the author of Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United. "When you talk about the corruption in Congress, people are talking about the same thing that Madison was talking about," she says, "this sense that our public servants are just serving themselves. They're running away with the resources of our country."

Jammin at Hippie Jack's Phil Lee Phil has never feared, personally or lyrically, to scamper out on a limb with a gleam inhis eye and a hacksaw in his hand. Sometimes a club owner or promoter will "suggest"that certain of his songs might ruffle a local feather or two but danged if he won't havethose very birds squarely in his corner before the night is done. Charm, guts and greatmaterial can get you a long way. Like Wile E. Coyote, he has a knack for recoveringfrom the most explosive circumstances but unlike that hapless canine he usually endsup on top and grinning. This has been of immense help in his previous incarnations as atruck driver, roadie, huckster and bon vivant. Phil Lee likes to say that "at a hundred, myage, weight and IQ have all averaged out." Maybe so but if that's true he's sure gettingmaximum output in all three areas. He writes constantly, eats a sensible diet and,peripatetic as hell, he won't hesitate to haul out of his Nashville habitations in his pickupfor a gig in Wisconsin on a Friday, cannonball from there to Missouri on Saturday andhit Indiana on Sunday - after church of course.

Jammin at Hippie Jack's Brigitte DeMeyer She draws on a mixture of firsthand experience and a rich, sensuous lexicon of gospel,blues, country and literary imagery. If it sometimes seems that popular music is ateenage fantasyland where people pretend to be without attachments or responsibilities,that's not the case with her songwriting—she tells it like it is. On Rose of Jericho, thereare songs like "Amen Said the Deacon"—a slice of gospely Chitlin' Circuit funk—and thecountry soul number "This Fix I'm In" that capture the longing she feels for her childwhen she's far away.

Moyers & Company How Public Power Can Defeat Plutocrats This week, Lawrence Lessig and Zephyr Teachout return to talk further about the corrupting influence of money in politics, a subject both have studied as scholars and fought against as reformers. Government has become a clearinghouse for corporations and plutocrats with deep pockets to buy the politicians who grease the wheels for lucrative contracts and easy regulation. It's all pay for play, and look the other way. Consider this from the watchdog Sunlight Foundation: From 2007 to 2012, two hundred corporations spent almost $6 billion for lobbying and campaign contributions. And they received more than $4 trillion in government contracts and other forms of assistance. That's why K Street is lobbying's road to Paradise. Now that the midterm elections are over, it's payback time, with the newly elected Congress ready to deliver to those who invested well in their chosen candidates. Lawrence Lessig teaches at Harvard Law School and made his reputation as an expert on the Internet. He started the Mayday SuperPac, raising millions for congressional candidates who vowed to fight for campaign finance reform. All but two of them lost - but the fight continues. He tells Bill Moyers, "When we look at the systematic way in which our representatives are responsive not to the people alone, but increasingly to the funders exclusively, then that is an obvious corruption... This is not a Democratic issue. This is not a Republican issue. This is an American issue." Zephyr Teachout, who teaches at Fordham Law School, ran for Governor of New York, trying to rouse the public against corruption in state government. She got more than a third of the vote in the Democratic primary. Teachout also is the author of Corruption in America: From Benjamin Franklin's Snuff Box to Citizens United. "When you talk about the corruption in Congress, people are talking about the same thing that Madison was talking about," she says, "this sense that our public servants are just serving themselves. They're running away with the resources of our country."

Sounds on 29th Little Fyodor & Timmi Lasley Sid Pink hosts this episode featuring Denver-based comedian Timmi Lasley and Little Fyodor - an artist who has been spreading his unique brand of avant-pop madness throughout the world musical underground for over twenty years, creating twisted, satirical songs which - beneath a crass and maniacal outer shell - express a deep empathy with those who most acutely experience the frustrations and alienation of modern life's "insect existence." Fyodor's songwriting, aesthetics and outlandish performances somehow manage to be simultaneously sad, angry and hilarious, and in doing so, appeal to the silent majority of disillusioned weirdos of the world, whom he adeptly addresses with a theatrical, daresay Vaudevillian flair, that is a brand all his own.

HAFU With an ever increasing movement of people between places in this transnational age, there is a mounting number of mixed-race people in Japan, some visible others not. "Hafu" is the unfolding journey of discovery into the intricacies of mixed-race Japanese and their multicultural experience in modern day Japan. The film follows the lives of five "hafus"-the Japanese term for people who are half-Japanese-as they explore what it means to be multiracial and multicultural in a nation that once proudly proclaimed itself as the mono-ethnic nation. For some of these hafus Japan is the only home they know, for some living in Japan is an entirely new experience, and others are caught somewhere between two different worlds.According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, one in forty-nine babies born in Japan today are born into families with one non-Japanese parent. This newly emerging minority in Japan is under-documented and under-explored in both literature and media. The feature-length HD documentary ?lm, "Hafu - the mixed-race experience in Japan" seeks to open this increasingly important dialogue. The ?lm explores race, diversity, multiculturalism, nationality, and identity within the mixed-race community of Japan. And through this exploration, it seeks to answer the following questions: What does it mean to be hafu?; What does it mean to be Japanese?; and ultimately, What does all of this mean for Japan?Narrated by the hafus themselves, along with candid interviews and cinéma vérité footage, the viewer is guided through a myriad of hafu experiences that are influenced by upbringing, family relationships, education, and even physical appearance.

"It was hard on him when he was by himself," his wife, Mary Hill Bell, said.But holding the place near Ishimmi Ridge over a tortuous three days of combat proved to be a decisive moment in the war in the Pacific, puncturing a hole in the Japanese's Shuri Line and clearing the way for the United States to win the island and use it for the planned invasion of Japan.

In their attempt to take the bridge, Burriss and his men were forced to cross the swift river in canvas boats with few paddles. Some were forced to use the butts of their guns to row, leaving them even more vulnerable to attack by the Germans who were easily picking off the soldiers.Burriss, and fellow paratrooper Roy Hanna, of Pinehurst, NC, talk about their harrowing experiences, and their feelings of exasperation when, after finally securing the bridge, the British wouldn't move down the road and rescue their own paratroopers trapped behind enemy lines at Arnhem.The program also portrays Burriss' return to Nijmegan in 2010 for the 65th anniversary of the battle. To commemorate the occasion, Burriss, four days shy of his 90th birthday, parachuted out of an airplane in tandem with a female Dutch paratrooper. During the visit, he also came face to face with the British commander who refused to move.

Sisters SISTERS is a one-hour documentary that takes the audience into the life stories of five American nuns. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of five women who have committed everything to the service of others in the deepest way. Their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves. They hold nothing back. Each has taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and their devotion is revealed principally through service to those in need— the poor, sick, and uneducated. They live and work around us, and yet to many they seem to exist in a world of their own. Out in their everyday existence, in the clothing of ordinary women, these Sisters live lives that are at once profoundly spiritual yet deeply human. How did they come to embrace this extraordinary life and its sacrifices? How do they actually experience the presence of God? What happens when they fall in love? What happens when they experience cruelty and death—the loss of a mother, the random and merciless anguish of a child's cancer? What anchors their faith? Through the vivid stories of these women's lives, the film explores the deepest hopes and yearnings of the human spirit, the risks and rewards of a generous heart. Beautifully produced by three-time Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Gardner, the film is a surprising and moving exploration of a world few of us know.

Sisters SISTERS is a one-hour documentary that takes the audience into the life stories of five American nuns. It is a film about faith and hope, love and death, seen through the eyes of five women who have committed everything to the service of others in the deepest way. Their stories are told in the honest words and actions of the women themselves. They hold nothing back. Each has taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and their devotion is revealed principally through service to those in need— the poor, sick, and uneducated. They live and work around us, and yet to many they seem to exist in a world of their own. Out in their everyday existence, in the clothing of ordinary women, these Sisters live lives that are at once profoundly spiritual yet deeply human. How did they come to embrace this extraordinary life and its sacrifices? How do they actually experience the presence of God? What happens when they fall in love? What happens when they experience cruelty and death—the loss of a mother, the random and merciless anguish of a child's cancer? What anchors their faith? Through the vivid stories of these women's lives, the film explores the deepest hopes and yearnings of the human spirit, the risks and rewards of a generous heart. Beautifully produced by three-time Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee Robert Gardner, the film is a surprising and moving exploration of a world few of us know.

Recorded at the Beautiful Chapel on the grounds of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.Messiah is an English-language large musical composition for orchestra, choir, and soloists composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It was first performed in Dublin 272 years ago on April 13, 1742.The original performance highlighted Jennens's text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah. The text begins in Part 1 with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only "scene" taken from the Gospels. In Part II, Handel concentrates on the Passion and ends with the "Hallelujah" chorus. In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in Heaven.Our program is an abridged version of the entire original work, which boasts performances by Ms. Karen Clift, Soprano, Mr. Robin Blaze, Countertenor, Mr. Gregory Kunde, Tenor, Mr. Dean Peterson, Bass, and conducted by Dr. Aaron Smith, Director of Musical Activities for the Naval Academy.

Gift of Life This program which tells the story of WWII veteran Irwin Stovroff, 92, a bombardier in a B-24 Libertator, who was shot down on his last mission over Nazi occupied France and later confined to a POW camp for allied airmen in Germany. He was segregated to a Jewish section of the camp under constant threat of death and appalling conditions to finally being libertated by Soviet Cossacks. After a successful career in business, Irwin retired and started volunteering to help other POW's to receive their pensions. After being informed that the U.S. Government doesn't provide funds to train service dogs for injured veterans returning from the recent wars, he began to raise money to provide highly trained dogs without cost to the veterans. The documentary shows the dramatic difference a dog can make in the life of a young veteran afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome or Traumatic Brain Injury. In many cases, it provides the veteran with reasons to choose life over commiting suicide. The Gift of Life produced by film maker Lou Molina, was recently honored as an Audience favorite at the Reds Festival, FT. Lauderdale, FL.

FIRE IN THE FOREST: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE BA'AL SHEM TOV Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide — and even non-Jews — revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. The documentary A FIRE IN THE FOREST explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered.

FIRE IN THE FOREST: THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF THE BA'AL SHEM TOV Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer (1698-1760), known as the Ba'al Shem Tov ("Master of the Good Name"), is one of the most beloved and celebrated, yet elusive, figures in Jewish history. Today, Jews worldwide — and even non-Jews — revere him as the founder of the Hasidic movement, a 18th-century offshoot of Judaism that promotes a mystical interpretation of the Bible, and as a model of piety and spirituality. The documentary A FIRE IN THE FOREST explores the life and legacy of the Ba'al Shem Tov through interviews with religious leaders and scholars, and on-location footage. The title derives from a tale about rabbis finding a hidden fire in the forest where they could appeal to God for help and have their prayers answered.

It was first performed in Dublin 272 years ago on April 13, 1742.The original performance highlighted Jennens's text is an extended reflection on Jesus Christ as Messiah. The text begins in Part 1 with prophecies by Isaiah and others, and moves to the annunciation to the shepherds, the only "scene" taken from the Gospels.

In Part III he covers the resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in Heaven.Our program is an abridged version of the entire original work, which boasts performances by Ms. Karen Clift, Soprano, Mr. Robin Blaze, Countertenor, Mr. Gregory Kunde, Tenor, Mr. Dean Peterson, Bass, and conducted by Dr. Aaron Smith, Director of Musical Activities for the Naval Academy.
