Notes 2016 December
New Show Examines First 100 Days Of The Trump Administration
WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) are joining forces to convene a nightly gathering for everyday Americans to talk, debate, and find common ground in the first 100 days of the new administration. Indivisible is airing Mondays through Thursdays from 7-8 PM through April 28 on CapRadio News.

The program features a different host and focus each night, bringing listeners across every divide together to weigh in and participate in lively, candid, and inclusive conversations. Hosts include radio personalities whose work is distinguished by its focus on listener interaction. “This is an extraordinary time for our nation and we want to help listeners navigate through everything that’s happening,” says CapRadio’s Chief Content Officer, Joe Barr. “Indivisible is a great resource to help synthesize issues in a civil, conversational way.”

The focus of each evening is as follows:

MONDAYS: WNYC’s Kai Wright will build on the issues he explored in The United States of Anxiety to survey America’s cultural fault lines and invite callers to discuss the divides and how to bridge them.

TUESDAYS: WNYC's Brian Lehrer hosts a program evaluating how -- and how quickly --American norms are changing. How are language, ethics, the law, and our institutions adopting new contours under a new and unprecedented leader?

WEDNESDAYS: Charlie Sykes, a leading voice in conservative talk radio for 25 years, will interview policy makers and engage listeners in conversation that weighs developments in the new administration’s first 100 days against American values and conservative principles.

THURSDAYS: Minnesota Public Radio's Kerri Miller will examine American identity at this moment of change. Who is a part of the national narrative, who feels left out, and how might our long-term sense of ourselves change?

This program will be produced by MPR News in St. Paul, Minnesota.

What's Your View on Affordable Housing?
Honk if your rent is going up.
Sacramento's housing affordability crisis disproportionately affects the poorest residents of our communities. Mayor Darrell Steinberg has pledged to add 1000 units of permanent supportive housing for homeless people. But many seniors, students and middle-class working people spend more than the recommended 30% of income on housing costs. Some neighborhoods in Sacramento County are being gentrified. Some Sacramentans are opposed to affordable housing construction where they live.

The View From Here reporting team will spend the year delving into this complex and controversial topic. We're seeking stories and story leads in Sacramento County.

• Is your rent rising faster than your ability to afford it?

• Have you had to move or do you think you will because of rising rents?

• Are you actively involved (one way or the other) in the construction or development of affordable housing in your neighborhood?

• Have you reported problems with rental housing to Sacramento County Code Enforcement?

• Are you a tenant or landlord who is currently using the Housing Choice Voucher program in Sacramento County (also known as "Section 8")?

Jazz and Classical Music Lovers, Join the Group!
Let's Talk Music
CapRadio Music has created a new Facebook group. It’s a space designed to bring music lovers together, with the accent on but not limited to classical music and jazz. Join the group and engage with Kevin Richard Doherty, Gary Vercelli and other music hosts. Add your thoughts to topics and start your own conversations. Post links to upcoming concerts you’re excited about, or share reviews of ones you’ve seen.

Our goal in starting this group is to build community. Along with posting items we think you’ll find interesting (from our staff and other sources), we encourage members to share information of their own and converse with each other. A musician might post details about an upcoming gig. A fan of Joshua Bell might post a review of his Mondavi Center concert. Someone with strong opinions about jazz saxophonists might lay out his top 10 list. And links to interesting articles will no doubt accompany many posts. You get the picture.

Whether you’re a musician, an educator, a presenter, or a just a passionate fan, help us make this a vibrant and supportive online community celebrating our mutual love of music. Join today! Search for “CapRadio Music” on Facebook or follow this link.
