From his home studio/ham shack in suburban Chicago, Hap Holly, KC9RP, produces this 10 to 15- minute weekly amateur radio program service, featuring timely interviews, occasional thought-provoking commentaries from other hams, excerpts from Hamvention Forums and other items of general interest to the ham radio community at large.

This time on Peace Talks Radio, a two-part program. In Part One, we'll meet the founders of the New Mexico Peace Choir, which was formed in 2015 to promote peace and joy and also raise awareness of important issues like the environment. It has grown into a movement and last year represented the United States last at the World Peace Choir conference in Vienna. Members were also part of a world premiere work, The Great War symphony, in November 2018 at Carnegie Hall in New York commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War I. You'll hear how their performances bring people together and foster greater understanding. In Part Two, well hear from military veteran and long-time peace activist Sally-Alice Thompson who, at 95, is hardly slowing down in her daily drive for social justice and peace. A Navy veteran who served in World War 2, Sally-Alice also taught school for 20 years and, along with her husband Donald founded a chapter of Veterans for Peace in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Shes also a veteran of scores of marches and protests over many decades now.
This over 200-year debate and struggle has become confused and confusing. Too many different definitions make honest, balanced discussions and evaluations of these alternative systems difficult. Because socialism is rising yet again to challenge capitalism, the debate now must take account of the terms' new and different meanings. We do that here in arguing for a new way to understand and engage 'capitalism versus socialism.'
