Community Progressive Radio (CPRmetro.org) is a non-profit, community-based, multi-media organization created to remedy the lack of media attention devoted to critical issues affecting our lives. CPRmetro.org provides a forum for a wide range of topics in a constant attempt to expose the truth. We use all the media technology available to us to provide our diverse communities with a media organization that can be relied on to give voice to its interests. We hope to provide opportunities for training and teaching community residents the science and the art of media production. We also hope to offer local artists an opportunity to learn media skills that will allow them to present their works to a larger audience.

Blue Streak: Swearing, Free Speech and Sexual Harassment Certain words, said at the wrong time or place, may get a person into a heap of trouble. The laws surrounding freedom of speech do not permit us, for example, to shout out “fire” in a theater or advocate the immediate and violent overthrow of the government. There are also limits on the time and place where a person can use swear words or language with sexual innuendos or suggestions. Richard Dooling, an attorney and writer living in Nebraska, joined us in June of 1997 to talk about his book, entitled, “Blue Streak: Swearing, Free Speech and Sexual Harassment.” Richard Dooling recommends “Emotional Brain,” by Joseph La Due. Originally Broadcast: June 4, 1997

Dickens, Bukowski, Jimmy Cliff, Carson McCullers, Kirk Douglas, Scrooge, Nikki Giovanni, Bezos, Macron, Hitchcock, Joker... ** 'Joaquin couldn't have been nicer - and I wasn't expecting him to be that way.' Joker, The Last Laugh: A Conversation With Joker Co-Star Sam Morril. And setting the record straight about unpredictable and controversial Joaquin Phoenix as misunderstood, both on and off screen, and in and out of character. Morril also fields questions on how he goes about as a standup comic, mining comedy in the face of such a messed up world today. And, is there a difference he's discovered taking his show around this divided country, between a red state versus blue state sense of humor. ** 'Steven Knight's retelling of Dickens couldn't be more up to date, with Scrooge restored to his original savage vigor. His cold calculations reminding us of Jeff Bezos - who regulates his workers' bathroom breaks.' Bro On The Global Television Beat: Arts Express Paris correspondent Professor Dennis Broe dissects Dickens in the age of neo-liberalism and colonial abuse as a feature of British imperialism - and what it has to do with Hitchcock revisited, and audiences tuned in each week to see the underbelly of society exposed. Poetry Corner: Spotlight on Nikki Giovanni. Plus Bukowski, Carson McCullers... ** 'Kirk Douglas was infamous throughout his life for his own terrible temper. But it worked in his favor on the screen, with his enormous physicality and sense of struggle - in film you could feel and see him pushing out a volcano of emotion and passion that the borders of the movie screen couldn't contain.' Remembering Kirk Douglas: And an incomparable life and career, along with courageously breaking the stranglehold of the Hollywood Blacklist. Referencing the American Legion, embezzlement, the Universal Studio commissary, and a handlebar moustache. Jack Shalom reports.
