Reif Larsen Special Guest on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday 7th March 9-10 PM

 

This week as my special guest from the arts I’m pleased to be interviewing best-selling author and film-maker Reif Larsen. Reif’s first novel, The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet, was a New York Times bestseller, is currently translated into 27 languages, and was adapted into a movie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (of Amélie fame). Vanity Fair commented ‘The Selected Works of T S Spivet about a 12-year-old genius cartographer from Montana, is like nothing you’ve ever picked up…it is steeped in poignancy, humour and wisdom.” Reif’s writings have appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, Tin House, one story, The Millions, Asymptote Journal, and The Believer. He studied at Brown University and has taught at Columbia University, where he received an MFA in fiction. Reif is currently serving as the writer-in-residence at the University of St Andrews in Scotland. Reif is also a film-maker and has made documentaries in the USA, UK, and Sub Saharan Africa.

Reif’s new book I Am Radar has just come out and is as highly original as Reif’s first book taking in quantum physics, forgotten history, a secretive group of puppeteers and scientists, who stage experimental art for people suffering under war-time sieges, and encompassing environments around the globe. Join me Saturday 9-10 PM to find out more about the life and art of Reif Larsen.

If you enjoy the interview, you can meet Reif in person at Bookshop Santa Cruz on March 11th at 7 PM for a talk, Q&A and book signing.

Tribute to Sam Andrew of Big Brother and The Holding Company on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland Saturday 28th February 9-10 PM

This week I am featuring a tribute to Sam Andrew of Big Brother and the Holding Company who sadly passed away in the arms of his wife, Elise, on Thursday, February 12th in San Francisco. Sam was a friend and previous guest on It’s A Question of Balance and was a phenomenal human being. Big Brother and The Holding Company, was originally composed of Janis Joplin, Peter Albin, Sam Andrew, James Gurley and Dave Getz. As a singer, songwriter, composer, and guitarist and founding member of Big Brother and The Holding Company Sam Andrew had multiple hits and three platinum albums to his name. Of his early compositions, "Call on Me" and "Combination of the Two" have been two of Big Brother’s most enduring classic tracks and are still concert favorites today. Sam Andrew and Janis Joplin also recorded an album together as the Kozmic Blues Band called ‘I Got Dem Old Kozmic Blues Again Mama’.

Sam and original band mate James Gurley produced some of the greatest psychedelic guitar solos of all time. In February of 1997, Guitar Player magazine listed the work of Sam and James on "Summertime" as one of the top ten Psychedelic solos in music history. After Big Brother stopped performing in 1972, Sam moved to New York where he studied harmony, counterpoint and composition. During this period he also scored several films in the US and Canada as well as writing two string quartets and a symphony. When Big Brother reunited in 1987, Sam provided a wonderful variety of fresh new songs to the band. A sensitive and thoughtful man, his personality is reflected in the lyrics of his beautiful ballads. When Big Brother was not not on the road, Sam pursued his solo project, The Sam Andrew Band.

In tribute to Sam I am featuring excerpts from my interviews with him.

Join me Saturday 9-10 PM to honor the life and art of Sam Andrew. For more info and to hear previous shows visit www.itsaquestionofbalance.com

‘Is the truth necessary to a successful society?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday 7th February

 

This Saturday 7th February 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Is the truth necessary to a successful society?’ What place does the truth have in our society today? There’s politicians who it seems a lot of people doubt are telling the truth a lot of the time, there’s excessive advertising everywhere stretching the truth to its limits and at times breaking the limits, and there’s the tabloid magazines which never seem to let the truth get in the way of a salacious story. Evidence from religious texts dating from antiquity shows that lying and deception have been of concern to humans for millennia but is the truth still important? Do we link truth with honour in our dealings? What would a world be like where no one expected the truth? Is the truth necessary to a successful society?
