I was walking a friend down Clarion Alley a few weeks ago, when I came across this guy playing “music” on a guitar, plugged into a cassette deck, and running through a small amp. I threw him a Radio Valencia sticker and told him to hit me up. His name is J. Lee and he’s in the studio with me tonight. Wow! I love this town. You can check out his stuff here:
The friend I was walking down the alley happens to be with the National Academy Foundation (NAF), who were in town two weeks ago for their annual education summit, which brings in about 1400 educators from around the nation. I’m a teacher, and I used to teach in a NAF academy. I believe strongly in the need for education reform. I walk the walk. During the conference I had the pleasure of sitting down with some NAF alumni as well as some current 12 graders to discuss how NAF has benefited them. I’ll be playing the interview tonight. If you’re interested in the future of education in America, I suggest you tune in.
