JAM’s Second Show!

31 01 2012

Your favorite SOS radio talk show hosts had another successful two-hour radio show this past Sunday! In case you didn’t know or haven’t been tuning in, we’ll catch you up on how to listen to them, get your voice/opinion heard on air, what they talked about, and what music they jammed out to this week.

JAM is an acronym for the three main radio show hosts; John, Amy, and Maame. They are all members of SOS and each Sunday from 1PM-3PM they talk about sustainability issues on their mind and what music they have stuck in their head at that moment. JAM’s show is made possible by SIUE Web Radio, and they are all very grateful to utilize Web Radio as an outlet for sustainability topics and discussion. If anyone would like to contribute to conversations they’ve had in the past or what they’re talking about live, then you can call in or leave a comment on either SOS’ Twitter, Facebook, or right here on our blog! JAM checks these social media outlets while in the booth and can answer your comments right over the air. (How cool is that?!)

Opening songs:

“Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green

“Surf Rider” by The Lively Ones

“Son Of A Preacher Man” by Dusty Springfield

On Amy’s segment this week, she gave some tips for living sustainability. She found some great ideas while researching her topic and came across a blog post she particularly found interesting with some suggestions to really think about. One of the tips, learning to grow food, lead Amy to find a great article on urban gardening.

Amy’s Playlist:

“Boyfriend” by Best Coast

“The Devil Never Sleeps” by Iron & Wine

“Treat Her Right” by The Commitments

“Never Forget You” by Noisettes

“She Ain’t a Child No More” by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

Maame found an article about an upcoming UN conference in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The conference is focusing on sustainable development for countries; making sure economies can grow without harming resources and the environment for future generations. Maame is hoping this conference will use the focus of sustainable development to tackle environment problems, like climate change.

Maame’s playlist:

“Phoenix” by Maxwell

“Kneelin’ At My Alter” by Arrested Development

“Big Eater” by The Bad Plus

“Generosity” by Mirah

“Staring at the Sun” by TV on the Radio

“Concrete Jungle” by Bob Marley

John recently wrote a paper on the topic of free trade coffee, and decided to use his time on the show to inform and discuss this topic.

John’s Playlist:

“The Next Movement” by The Roots

“Step Into the Realm” by The Roots

“Proceed” by The Roots

“Essaywhuman?!!!??!” by The Roots

“The Ultimate” by The Roots
Since JAM is a weekly event, we encourage SOS members to tune in and find out what’s going on every week. JAM needs live listeners to accomplish all that they want to accomplish, so for now on there will be a monthly JAM update on the blog instead of one every week. PLEASE LISTEN TO THE SHOW (it’s all online!) and come here to voice your opinion about the show, catch up on any broadcasts you missed, or for other updates on the SOS club in general.

Awesome JAM guy n’ gals!

Most of those tips are more than just sustainable; they’re quite economical too! Perfect for all of the broke college students surfing the web radio waves..

Looking forward to some more tasty JAM 🙂
