The gentlemen of the band called Itchyworms have issues on traffic enforcers, billboards, and many other things. Rock Ed Radio looks forward to having a conversation with them. We just want to ask Jugs Jugueta (pink), Jazz Nicolas (yellow), Kelvin Yu (blue) and Chino Singson (green) what they think they know about themselves and the world they live in. Writer Erwin Romulo joins us again. :) :)

Yes, this is our vaguest topic description ever. Which is why - clearly - you should tune in.

This will be interesting.

Sept 28 on Rock Ed Radio >> BECAUSE ILOCOS

Let's talk about things we think we know-- but don't REALLY know about Ilocos.

Two Ilocano gentlemen will tell us all about it. Marcus Adoro (Markus Highway, Eraserheads) joins Prof. Arnold Azurin (UP Diliman) on air.

Ikaw, anong alam mo tungkol sa Ilocos at sa Ilocano?

(Sayang hindi pwede sumali si Aimee Marcos dahil out of town siya. "Aimee-Marcus-Adoro" sana yung title ng episode)

Sept 21 on Rock Ed Radio >> REMEMBER SEPTEMBER

A few episodes ago, we had author Bobby Garcia guest but we were unceremoniously cut by a power failure.

So we shall have him back with us this Sunday to talk about his book, "To Suffer Thy Comrades" and his post-NPA life. It's also a good time to remember the 36th anniversary of Martial Law.

Ika nga ni Tado Jimenez, "once again, once more."

Post questions here.

Sept 14 on Rock Ed Radio >> KUMUSTAHAN: Tagaytay 5, the radio episode, "Why me Lord...?" (hehehe)

Although we will seem to try to handle this radio episode with the kid gloves of a sense of humor, 859 days in jail is not funny at all.

Let's talk to (the group now known as) the Tagaytay 5. Arrested in Feb 2006 on charges of subversion etc, the political detainees were finally set free last week. Check out the Victory Party poster above.

At first we thought they'd hold the party at the appropriately named FREEDOM BAR along Anonas, but I think they chose a more aptly-named place: CONSPIRACY along Visayas. (hehehe)

Anyway, what is a political detainee?
Why are/were they deemed such?
How do you become a political detainee?

Seemingly basic questions, I know...but do we REALLY know the answers? I'm sure there are just causes, (cough*) so let's ask 5 people who were considered such. If you want to know more about them, then google. :)

After you read up, then tune in on Sunday.

Feat: the Tagaytay 5 and the Free Legal Assistance Group Lawyer, Atty Jose Manuel Diokno. (yaay!)

Sept 7 on Rock Ed Radio >> LIFE CHOICES

Let's talk about the Reproductive Health bill. Now on the table. Talked about in Congress, debated on in religious circles. Somehow discussed in schools.

What do you know of the Reproductive Health bill?
Do you support or oppose it?

Okay, at the very least - stop ignoring it.

Let's talk about this. Frank and forward will be the night's attitude. So please, join the conversation.

The Reproductive Health Advocacy Network (RHAN) will give us an overview of the bill. Express their opinion. Then perhaps we can decide from there.

The following guests will be there to talk to us: Elizabeth Angsioco (SecGen, RHAN also Natl Chair -Democratic Socialist Women of the Phils, DWSP), Earnest Zabala (RHAN), Ramon San Pascual (Exec Dir Philippine Legislators' Committee on Population Devt, PLCPD) and Kiko de la Tonga (youth organizer, Pinagsamang Lakas ng Kababaihan at Kabataan, PILAKK)

Rock Ed Radio believes that we should never oppose nor support something without (even just a marginal amount of) understanding it.

So post. Comment. Complain. Choose.
