The State of Homelessness in Portland with Israel Bayer of Street Roots

Last week, Portland Mayor Charlie Hales announced his plan to conduct a major police sweep of homeless encampments through the city in the coming week. In recent weeks, the city has been making sounds about problems along the Eastside Esplanade as well as downtown. What does uprooting of the city's most at-risk residents say about the mayor's anemic homeless policy? Why is a city that prides itself on being progressive still permitting sweeps? Street Roots executive Director Israel Bayer will join host Dave Mazza to answer these and other questions about the state of homelessness in Portland. Join the conversation this Thursday at 8 am on Voices from the Edge.

Un-American country music
America, in general, and Nashville in particular represents the home of country music. But the liberating spirit of country music is not confined by geographic boundaries. It is free ranging and international. It exists in the quiet country pubs of Ireland, the honky tonk bars of Western Canada and the dusty  outback of Australia.
