Vocalo's Barber Shop Show

YMCA Story Squad

Is past exposure to trauma a main cause of future dangerous behaviors? And, who can talk about the violence going on in our communities better than kids who witness it first hand? We heard stories of youth from the YMCA’s Story Squad program: Kevon Williams Daniel Rios Jaime Deluna Brian Green We also heard from Grant Buhr, who runs the program. Then, we checked in with Rod Dixon, a soloist with the upcoming show “Too Hot to Handel”. He spoke about the musical performance, as well as how it ties in with Dr. King’s idea of “beloved community”. The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays at Noon on 91.1FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. In addition, the show rebroadcasts on Saturdays at 9am on 91.1FM and on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ 91.5FM.
