Lawrence Downs brings us the corrido of Saúl Linares, an organizer from Hempstead, Long Island (next door to one of my least favorite places on earth, the Garden City USCIS office). Linares sings about the exploits of Sheriff Joe "Arpayaso," Arizona's clown prince.

Dreams to be Heard, a club that helps undocumented college students at California State University Northridge has a new radio spot. But rather than me telling you, how about I let them tell you themselves. Tune in if you can, I know I will.     


We are happy to announce that D2BH has been offered a 10 min. segment on KPFK (Pacifica Radio), our local progressive radio station. We'll be on "The Morning Review with Gabriel Gutierrez" twice a month, starting tomorrow (Wed. March 11) at 7 am. 

The Morning Review is a progressive radio show. You can tune into 90.7 FM (Los Angeles) or 98.7 FM (Santa Barbara) or listen live online (
http://www.kpfk.org/listen-live.html).

This space will be used to educate the general public on issues affecting undocumented students and their families. We will also promote any local events and actions by our allies, like the CA Dream Network and United We Dream -DreamAvtivist.org

Although it's not our first time in the radio, this is our first time participating in such an exciting project. So, we hope you listen to us tomorrow and if you have any suggestions or questions, please send them in to dreamstobeheard@yahoo.com Type in "MORNING REVIEW-KPFK" in the subject line. 

La Oreja de Van Gogh is a Spanish band that makes catchy pop music. I haven't heard them since lead singer Amaia Montero went solo in 2007, but I'm going to have to track down their latest album now to see what it sounds like.

The video above is a very literal interpretation of the lyrics to "Un Mundo Mejor." Following is the more upbeat "20 de Enero" which will forever remind me of Buenos Aires circa 2003. (Not because Argentina was overrun by space aliens that year, but because that's where I was living when the album was popular.)
