At 9 AM: Mats Edén – The Kitchen Concert: Mats Edén has been one of the prime movers in the folk revival in Sweden, but is also a force in improvisational, classical and art music, and has performed with Groupa, Ale Möller, Lena Willemark, Ellika Frisell, and many others. Earlier this month Mats took out his fiddles, sat down at his kitchen table and recorded a concert in his home in Harlösa, Sweden. He’s also written a detailed and illustrated program guide, which you will find on our web site so you can follow along. I’ll also feature solo, duet and ensemble recordings from his decades long career, and include a new work by the quartet Nordic Raga, performing one of Mats’ compositions.

Vandana Shiva: Seeds & Freedom – What’s in a seed? Life itself. Ten thousand years ago, Iraq, Egypt and India were the sites of the earliest sowing and harvesting of plants that had previously been gathered in the wild. It was a revolutionary development and made civilization possible. Since then humans have been able to grow food and feed themselves. Today, that freedom embodied in seeds is threatened. Multinational corporations, like Monsanto, have radically changed the agricultural landscape. The imposition of intellectual property rights and patenting have been ways corporations have devised to put a price tag on seeds and to undo what has been for millennia a shared heritage. Around the world there is backlash and resistance to the corporate hijacking of seeds. In many instances it is indigenous peoples who are leading the way in promoting sustainability and protecting the integrity of seeds. Alternative Radio with David Barsamian regularly airs on WPKN every Monday morning at 6 AM.
