" In 1933, a group of freethinking American educators and academics took a look at their fresh, interwar world — and set about trying to remake it. They set up a campus in idyllic countryside outside Asheville, North Carolina, and Black Mountain College was born. " Week of June 7th -- Recommended Aural Programs: FROM Pacifica Radio's AGAINST THE GRAIN: "Union Opponents and Their Rhetoric": "Anti-union activists of the Progressive Era propagated a number of arguments that still resonate throughout the U. S. today. In his new book Reform or Repression, Chad Pearson describes this influential group of employers, activists, and their allies. The story of one Southern activist, N. F. Thompson, reveals connections between racial violence and anti-union activism. " Week of May 22nd -- Recommended Aural Programs: FROM Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Radio National 's series EARSHOT: "Where the walls have ears: listening in to Anna Akhmatova": Anna Akhmatova (1889-1966) is today regarded as one of the greatest Russian poets of the twentieth century; a commanding figure, known for her striking beauty, regal poise and, above all, her inspirational courage in writing about the victims of the terror that pervaded the USSR during the Stalinist era, with its devastating purges and gulags. Writer and broadcaster Robyn Ravlich visited Akhmatova's apartment in St Petersburg, where the gifted poet secretly wrote her poetic masterpieces, Requiem and Poem Without a Hero -- right under the noses of KGB forces, who kept watch on her 24 hours a day and bugged her apartment. It would take decades for the poems to be published, first abroad in translation, and then at last they appeared in full in Russian in the 1980s, during the last period of the Soviet empire. This personal literary pilgrimage revealed surprising details of the poet's intimate and dramatic life that are not widely known, shedding new light on her poems. The program captures what one of Robyn's specialist guide-companions described as 'trembling moments'. Although long absent, Akhmatova remained a powerful presence in the apartment where she lived for over twenty five years: it is still furnished as it was when she lived there, replete with her memorabilia and treasured artwork. The apartment -- in a former palace that was nationalised after the Russian Revolution -- is now a museum devoted to the enduring legacy of Anna Akhmatova. Music in the program is from the album The Trackless Woods, Iris DeMent.

On this episode of BackStory, the Guys explore the history of Gambling in America. We look at how speculators bet on land -- America's most plentiful commodity -- and created the "first" stock market. The Guys also uncover how gambling, once outlawed throughout much of the U.

The Guys go back to the eighteenth-century and look at how elite colleges replaced social status with merit and behavior as a way to grade students. We uncover the links between President James Garfield's 1881 assassination and the civil service test, and look at how officials created the first, "white, " affirmative action program by waiving the test for WWII veterans.

April 12, 2016 Segment 1 | Earshot: Vasa ~ A Brilliant Disaster ( 2015) From ABC/Radio National's Earshot: "The Swedish ship the Vasa, built in 1628, was one of the biggest battleships of its era. Sixty-nine metres long, the ship had three masts and was built to carry over four hundred men. It was to be the symbol of the growing Swedish empire, but ended up becoming a disaster. On its maiden voyage, the Vasa sailed just over one kilometre and then sank in the middle of Stockholm’s harbour. Three hundred years after its disastrous sinking, the ship was discovered. Due to the depth of the sea, and the mud in which the Vasa sank into at the bottom of the harbour, divers found an almost intact ship; the submerged Vasa was described as a marine Pompeii. Journalist Johan Gabrielsson delves into the royal archive and speaks with marine archaeologists and historians to try and discover why the ship sank on her maiden voyage. " From ABC/Radio National's Earshot: "Many years ago Gary Bryson found a cassette tape amongst a box of old recordings that had once belonged to BBC producer Charles Parker. Parker was famous for the highly acclaimed series of Radio Ballads that he made in the 50s and 60s with folk musicians Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger. The cassette tape however, was not a radio ballad. It was labelled 'Off Limits #2' and was one of a series of programs produced by Parker along with musicians of what was known as the Critics' Group - a radical leftist folk ensemble led by MacColl. Dated 1970 - the height of the Vietnam war - it features the voices of American draft evaders, discontented soldiers and deserters from the conflict. Today, Off Limits opens a fascinating window onto the politics of protest at one particular moment in British history. It carries with it the echoes of a world at war, but a war that was never simply black and white, country against country, right or wrong; because Charles Parker didn’t make Off Limits for the BBC. He made it for the Vietcong. " April 5, 2016 Segment 1 | BackStory: Little Caesars ~ Local Politics in America (2016) From BackStory and the American History Guys: "As the presidential candidates continue their contentious path to the White House, it's easy to overlook what’s happening at the local level.

Plunkitt of Tammany Hall (LibriVox reading; selection) One of the more influential leaders of New York's Democratic political machine, Tammany Hall, George Washington Plunkitt (1842-1924) cultivated the art of "honest graft.

March 29, 2016 Segment 1 | ABC/Radio National's Earshot: The Sex Workers Revolt From ABC/Radio National's Earshot: "In 1975 hundreds of French sex workers went on strike and occupied Catholic churches across the country. They were protesting police abuse and government closure of their work places. Supported by a handful of Catholic priests, the aggrieved sex workers became the centre of a global media storm. Forty years on, the strike is credited as the spark for present day sex workers rights movements. Producer Eurydice Aroney takes us to the Church in Lyon, France where it all began. She speaks with those who were there, and with the aid of archives, presents an "audio excavation" of a unique story.

Brecht and Weill's 'play with music' was based on John Gay's 'The Beggar's Opera', which was inspired by the real-life English highwayman, Jack Sheppard. 'Mack the knife' was a top ten hit for Bobby Darin in 1959. Ella Fitzgerald famously forgot the words when performing in Berlin in 1960 but her improvised version won a Grammy. Suzi Quatro recalls that as a child, she performed it with her father, playing the bongos in her first-ever stage appearance.

Segment 2 | From the Archives: Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb (LibriVox) We present a selection from a reading of one of the most famous 19th century slave narrative, the Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb. From LibriVox: "Henry Walton Bibb was born a slave. His father was white although his identity was not positively known. Bibb was separated from his mother at a very young age and hired out to other slave owners for most of his childhood. Always yearning for his freedom, he made his first escape from slavery in 1842. He was recaptured and escaped, recaptured and escaped over and over; but he never gave up on his desire to be a man in control of his own destiny. Bibb eventually escaped the bondage of servitude for good and dedicated his life to speaking out against the institution of slavery. In the process he helped others obtain their freedom. He published Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, and American Slave in 1849 telling the story of his daily life as a slave, as a runaway and as a free man. He also illustrated the depravity of that “man-destroying system” and the “idea of utter helplessness in perpetual bondage. ” Bibb stated in his Author's Preface that there were other very popular slave narratives published before his own; nevertheless, the uniqueness of his story is in the details of his experiences which, like the others, shine a glaringly truthful beam of light on the sins of this nation. Ultimately Bibb made his way to Canada where in 1851 he published the first black newspaper of that Country, Voice of the Fugitive. He died in 1854 at the age of 39. (Introduction by James K. White).

Segment 2 | From the Archives: Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) Here is a short sound track selection from one of the earliest historical films to win a "Best Picture" oscar -- in 1935, Although not always historicallly, accurate, it was one of the best film translations of the actual 1789 mutiny aboard the HMS Bounty. Here is a summary of the famous tale (from 1935 New York Times review of the film): "In 1787 H. M. Bounty, commanded by the able but intolerably savage Lieutenant Bligh, left England bound for Tahiti. The spirit of revolt grew among both officers and men during the voyage as Bligh's mania for discipline increased in fury. Discharging her cargo at Tahiti, the Bounty was sailing for home when Christian, the second in command, led the mutinous sailors and seized the ship. Bligh and eighteen loyal men were set adrift with the ship's launch in mid-Pacific, while the triumphant mutineers put back to Tahiti. Miraculously Bligh took his open boat 3, 600 miles across the ocean to the Dutch East Indies, a feat that is almost unparalleled for skill and courage in nautical annals. In the photoplay, though not in fact, Bligh commands the second British ship which pursues the mutineers and is wrecked in the futile search. Midshipman Byam and several other loyal seamen who were forced to accompany the rebels were returned to England for trial. Condemned with the rest, Byam, in the film, is pardoned after an eloquent speech in which he informs the court-martial of the conditions which drove Christian and the crew to mutiny.

February 2, 2016 Segment 1 | BackStory: Court of Public Opinion ~ Trial Watching in America (2016) In this episode of BackStory, the American History Guys "explore our fascination with courtroom drama. What makes for a compelling case and why have some landmark proceedings received little attention? We'll consider why so many Americans followed the trial of a young clerk accused of murdering a New York City prostitute in 1836, and why we're still talking about Sacco and Vanzetti nearly a century after they were sentenced to death. From public hanging in Puritan Massachusetts, to the murder trial of Black Panther leader Huey Newton in the late 1960's, the Guys will reveal the deep-seated issues beneath American trial-watching.

" January 19, 2016 Segment 1 | BackStory: Color Lines ~ Racial Passing in America (2016). "On this episode of BackStory, the Guys will consider how and why Americans throughout the centuries have crossed the lines of racial identity, and find out what the history of passing has to say about race, identity, and privilege in America. We'll look at stories of African-Americans who passed as white to escape slavery or Jim Crow and find out how the "one-drop rule" enabled one blonde-haired, blue-eyed American to live a double life without ever arousing suspicion. We'll also explore the story of an African-American musician who pioneered a genre of exotic music with a bejeweled turban and an invented biography, and examine the hidden costs of crossing over. " For more information, go to:. Segment 2 | From the Archives: Literary "Passing" - George Eliot We expand our discussion of the notion of "passing" by looking at women who used masculine pen names. Mary Ann Evans is now far better recognized by her pen name, George Eliot, as she is by her birth name. One of the leading English writers of the Victorian era, she chose a masculine pen name to be taken seriously -- to escape the automatic association of women writers with romantic and light-hearted plots. Here we offer a selection from chapter 1 of one of her most famous novels, Middlemarch (1871-72). For more infromation about George and her works, see:. January 12, 2016 Segment 1 | From the Vault: Dalton Trumbo (2015). From one of Pacifica Radio's flagship programs, From the Vault, we present this profile of blacklisted Hollwood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, now the subject of a major Hollywood film: "This week on From the Vault we salute one of America's greatest screenwriters and novelists, Dalton Trumbo, who is known as much for his Academy Award-winning scripts as he is for being one of the infamous "Hollywood Ten, " a group of Hollywood film industry professionals blacklisted for publicly denouncing the tactics of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in the late 1940's. In 1971, Trumbo sat down for an interview with Pacifica's Larry Bensky to discuss the film adaptation of his award-winning 1939 novel Johnny Got His Gun. Dalton also explores his thoughts on the Attica Prison uprising, and reminisces on the days of McCarthyism and blacklisting in America. We'll also hear archival recordings from our collection of Trumbo’s contemporaries who knew him best, including Ring Lardner Jr. (a fellow member of the Hollywood Ten), communist activist Dorothy Healy, and actor Kirk Douglass. Segment 2 | From the Archives: Salt of the Earth (1954). Here is an excerpt from a film produced during the 1950s directed by blacklisted director Herbert Biberman and produced by a number of other blacklisted Hollywood cast and crew members (including Paul Jarrico) -- though many of the actors came from the local community in which the film was made. The film, based on actual events, focuses on Mexican workers at a Zinc mine who call a strike -- and ultimately triumph as they build a solidarity among themselves. The film is especially unique, not only in the way it was made, but also in its feminist message. The success of the workers was heavily dependent on the trasnformation of the male workers in the film, one that took place as they learned to rely on -- and respet -- the strength and support of their wives, mothers and daughters.

This segment of our show comes to us from ABC's Radio National's weekly program, Rear Vision: "Most people in the big cities of the developed world don’t think twice about their water supply—unless perhaps, water restrictions are applied during a drought. Rear Vision tracks the remarkable advances in water engineering that make that assumption possible, beginning with the great gravity fed water system of ancient Rome. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, advances in water engineering not only allowed urban centres safe drinking water but found ways to manage waste water contamination as well. Now, in the twenty first century, will recycling and desalination plants answer the challenge of future drought and climate change? " For transcript and more information, see:.

BackStory and the American History Guys look at the history of U. relgions this week: "History textbooks often argue that the United States was founded on the principle of religious freedom, beginning with the Pilgrims who sought refuge from the Church of England. But the America of centuries past was more than a safe haven for religious dissenters. It was also fertile ground for many new religious faiths. In this hour of BackStory, the History Guys will consider religions that originated or transformed in America, from Christian Science to Scientology. They'll find out how the threat of colonization briefly united 18th-century Native Americans under a single deity, and how the Nation of Islam found converts among African-Americans in the civil rights era. What makes a religion "American"? Why do so many new faiths sprout from American soil? And what role will 21st century America play in the history of religious innovation?

This segment comes to us from Against the Grain []: "When the Moynihan Report was released fifty years ago, it sparked an explosive debate as well as a long-running controversy, one that persists to the present day. What did the document say about African American life, and why did William F. Buckley, Dr. King, and Michael Harrington all praise its message?

December 1, 2015 Segment 1 | BackStory: Contested Landscape ~ Confederate Symbols in America (2015). Brom BackStory and the American History Guys: "In July of this year, the murder of nine African-American parishioners at the Emanuel A. E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina reignited a longstanding debate about the Confederate flag. Soon after the shooting, South Carolina lawmakers voted to remove the flag from the State House building, and many other states followed suit. But while some Americans applaud the decision as a victory against racism and hatred, others argue that the flag's removal dishonors the memory of those who died defending the South. On this episode of BackStory, we're looking at how memories of the Confederacy have shaped the nation's landscape, from the rebel flag to the silver screen. The Guys will hear what symbols of the Confederacy mean to African Americans, explore Hollywood's love affair with Confederate heroes, and find out why one Civil War re-enactor changed his mind about his heritage. How have generations of Americans revered and renounced the Confederacy since its defeat 150 years ago? " This week's guests include: John Coski, American Civil War Museum; Maurie McInnis, University of Virginia; Brenda Stevenson, UCLA; Logan Jaffe, WBEZ Chicago Public Radio; Michael Paul Williams, Richmond Times-Dispatch; Eileen Jones, UC Berkeley; Waverly Adcock, Former Civil War Re-enactor. Segment 2 | From the Archives: Maryland, My Maryland (written 1861; official state song 1939). Maryland, My Maryland is the official state song of Maryland; it's based on a poem written by James Ryder Randall in 1861. Filled with clearly anti-Northern and anti-Lincoln stanzas, the song was nonetheless adoped as Maryland's official state song on April 29, 1939, by Maryland's General Assembly. For more information about the history of the song, see:. November 24, 2015 Segment 1 | Open Source: America's First Dance with the Devil (2015). From Open Source and Christopher Lydon: "John Winthrop, Massachusetts' first governor, first came to our shores, he gave the famous address, 'A Modell of Christian Charity. ' When Winthrop declared, 'we shall be as a city upon a hill — the eyes of all people will be upon us, ' he may well have been thinking of Salem, a pious little place perched on the north shore of Massachusetts Bay, older and richer than the future capital of Boston. Just before that, Winthrop predicted that a new kind of covenant would govern the people of Salem, Boston, Plymouth and York -- a religious fellowship, a peaceful neighborliness: We must uphold a familiar commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others’ conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, as members of the same body. So shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace… So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world. By the century was out, Salem, a city named for peace, would break out into an unholy war of all against all: a fever of recrimination and betrayal directed at witches in high places and low. Accusers named almost 200 people in places high and low -- from slave women and homeless widows to the governor’s wife -- as their stabbing spectral oppressors. A fiery court went to work in Salem's main street, extracting confessions. By the time the fever had broken, twenty martyrs -- those women and men who refused to pose as witches in order to save their own lives -- had been killed. (Five more had died in prison, including an infant. ) The witch-trial mania of 1692 represented the gravest disappointment of Winthrop's Christian charity yet seen on these shores -- and the shame of it pervades everything. So, led by Stacy Schiff, author of a controversial new thriller-history of that year, we're looking at the Salem trials again as a whole: not just as a memory or a metaphor for McCarthyism, not as a Halloween jolt of adrenaline, but the ghostly after-image and lingering shame in our neck of the woods. Historians and writers in town will bring us home: Emerson 'Tad' Baker pitches Salem as a pivotal moment in American history, Marilynne Roach acquaints us with victims of the hysteria, and novelist Katherine Howe finds the clearest soundings of the story in the Gothic 'romances' of Nathaniel Hawthorne and in the gray surround of her home turf in Essex County, Mass.

November 17, 2015 Segment 1 | BackStory: Body Politics ~ Disability in America (2015). BackStory and the American History Guys look back at the history of disability in America []: "The impact of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act is visible in parking lots, bathrooms, and public buildings across the country. But for centuries before the ramps and signs were erected, disabled people had to find their own ways to navigate American society. This week on BackStory, we’re exploring the history of disability in America, from the “ugly laws” that barred the disabled from public spaces to the grassroots activism that set the stage for the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Guys will consider how the inventor of the telephone tried to stamp out American sign language, and how enslaved people found ways to exploit white fears of physical disability. How have people with disabilities shaped 21st century America? And how have American attitudes towards disability changed?

King Jordan, Gallaudet University; Dea H. Boster, Columbus State Community College; and Emily Smith-Beitiks, Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability. Segment 2 | From the Archives: Jose Felliciano (1968). Jose Montserrate Feliciano Garcia -- Jose Feliciano -- was born in Lares, Puerto Rico, on September 10, 1945. He was left permanently blind at birth as a result of congenital glaucoma, "One of eleven boys, his love affair with music began at the age of three when he first accompanied his uncle on a tin cracker can. When he was five, his family immigrated to New York City. Young Jose learned to play the concertina at age six, using a handful of records as his teacher. At eight, he entertained his classmates at PS 57, and at nine, performed at The Puerto Rican Theater in the Bronx. Venturing beyond the accordion, he taught himself to play the guitar with undaunted determination and again, with nothing but records as his teacher, practicing for as many as 14 hours a day. Exposed to the Rock'n'Roll of the 50's, Jose was then inspired to sing.... " For more on Feliciano, see his biography here:. Here we feature one of his better known musical renditions of the Doors' song Light My Fire, first released on his album Feliciano! in 1968. November 10, 2015 Segment 1 | Rear Vision (ABC-Radio National): A History of Zoos (2015). Here's a piece that comes to us from ABC's Radio National's weekly program, Rear Vision: "People have collected and kept animals for thousands of years. During the eighteenth and nineteenth century, what had been called menageries—often royal collections—gave way to zoos, where live specimens were collected for study. Although some zoos—like the London Zoo—were established specifically for scientific research, ultimately the widespread human desire to look at live animals turned zoos into popular public places of entertainment. During the twentieth century, zoo design evolved and concrete cages with bars were replaced by moats and more naturalistic settings. The role of zoos also changed and although entertainment certainly still tops the list for most visitors, education and conservation have been added to the reasons for keeping and displaying captive animals. Rear Vision looks at the history of zoos and how they have adapted to the concerns of animal welfare advocates and the existential threat to animals in the wild. " For the transcript and more, see:. Segment 2 | From the Archives: Dorothy Day interview (1960). In this episode of Pacifica Radio's From the Vault, " we feature a rare recording of journalist, activist, and Catholic Worker Movement co-founder Dorothy Day. In 1927, thirty years after her birth, Day converted to Catholicism, and a few years later started The Catholic Worker, a popular newspaper promoting Catholic teachings. Leaning on the success of this publication, Day created the Catholic Worker Movement, which to this day addresses a wide range of social justice issues, guided by Catholic principles. Today, four decades after her passing in 1980, Day remains a revered figure in the modern Catholic Church, widely regarded as one of the most influential and important figures in the American Catholicism; indeed, Pope Francis himself highlighted the legacy of Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement in his 2015 address to the United States Congress.

November 3, 2015 Segment 1 | BackStory: People's Choice ~ A History of Populism (2015). Here's another contribution from BackStory and the American History Guys []: "Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have packed the stadiums as they make their case for the 2016 Republican and Democratic presidential nomination. Many pundits have labeled them 21st century “populists. ” But invoking the “voice of the people” is a tradition as old as the country itself. On this episode of BackStory, the Guys trace populism’s influence on American politics—from mob justice in colonial Massachusetts to the White House’s first outsider, Andrew Jackson. BackStory will explore how farmers built a mass movement around monetary reform in the late 19th century and how politicians have capitalized on the tradition of riling up the masses. How have populist movements inspired—and sometimes frightened—the electorate? And how does populism impact our politics today?

From Against the Grain: "A griculture in the Soviet Union had some colossal disasters -- not the least of which was the near-destruction of the Aral Sea -- and some significant successes as well. But most of the analysis of that experience has been through a Cold War lens. Historian Jenny Leigh Smith has taken a second look at Soviet agriculture. She argues that it compares decently to other mid-century industrialized agricultural systems, including that of the United States -- which may not be saying much" For more information, see: Jenny Leigh Smith, Works in Progress: Plans and Realities on Soviet Farms, 1930-1963 (New Haven: Yale U.

From BackStory and the American History Guys: "Americans have traded with China since the earliest days of the Republic. During the colonial era and for early Americans, China was a source of luxury goods like tea, porcelain, and silk. For some of their descendants, it was the destination for an illicit and lucrative trade in opium. Later, Chinese immigrants helped to build the American West. But the relationship between the two countries has often been fraught, with each side fearing that the other is seeking the upper hand. In this episode, Brian, Ed and Peter explore the long and often turbulent history between the two countries, now the top economies in the world. How does our past history with China color our present relationship?

Perhaps more than any other person, Marco Polo helped initiate centuries of contact and trade between the West and China. Here is a selection from The Book of Ser Marco Polo, the Venetian, concerning the kingdoms and marvels of the East, volume 1, translated by Henry Yule (1820 - 1889). He we offer a reading from the book, from LibriVox: "Books of the Marvels of the World" or "Description of the World" (Divisament dou monde), also nicknamed "Il Milione" ("The Million") or "Oriente Poliano", but commonly called "The Travels of Marco Polo", is a 13th-century travelogue written down by Rustichello da Pisa from stories told by Marco Polo, describing the travels of the latter through Asia, Persia, China, and Indonesia between 1271 and 's been a very famous and popular book since the 14th century, creating the image of Marco Polo as the icon of the bold traveller. Presenting Marco Polo as an important figure at the court of the Mongol leader Kublai Khan, the book was written in Old French by Rustichello da Pisa, a romance author of the time, who was reportedly working from accounts which he had heard from Marco Polo when they were imprisoned in Genoa, having been captured while on a ship. This audiobook in two volumes uses the 1903 third edition of Sir Henry Yule's translation, revised by Henri Cordier. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Leni). " For the full reading, see;.

From BackStory and the American History Guys: "September 27 marks the beginning of Banned Books Week, an annual event celebrating literature and the freedom to read, by highlighting and exploring efforts around the country to remove or restrict access to certain books. Indeed, Americans have sought to censor all kinds of things: music, radio, TV, and film have also run up against assumed limits on what is acceptable to say or portray. In this episode, Peter, Ed, and Brian offer an uncut account of censorship in American politics, media, and culture—from rules designed to prevent the discussion of controversial subjects ranging from slavery to sex via the mail, to Hollywood's production code and censorship today. Recalling materials and individuals that have been suppressed or once incurred a censor’s wrath, BackStory’s hosts explore how the line between free speech and censorship has changed over time.

Segment 2 | From the Archives: "Louie, Louis. " (1963). In keeping with the theme of this week, censorship, we offer a song that was banned by several radio stations in 1964 around the nation. Here is one account of why, from Dwight Rounds' The Year The Music Died, 1964-1972: " The words to 'Louie Louie' are almost impossible to understand, and are rumored to be obscene. No question that this added significantly to the sales of the single. There was probably a leak somewhere that the lyrics were obscene; otherwise no one would have realized it. This was the most ingenious marketing scheme ever. The FBI tried to track down Richard Berry, The Kingsmen, and various record company executives. They were never able to determine the actual lyrics used. To this day, the Kingsmen insist they said nothing lewd, despite the obvious mistake at the end of the instrumental, where Jack Ely started to sing the last verse one bar too soon, and can be heard yelling something in the background. Ely also said that he sung far away from the microphone, which caused the fuzzy sound, and that the notoriety was initiated by the record company. " NPR actually ran a feature on the story behind the Kingsmen's version of Richard Berry's Louie, Louie [Go here to listen:. For the actual FBI report on its investigation of the song, see:.

This astonishingly open dialogue from Hoffa lasted over two hours and, when Hoffa disappeared some weeks later on July 30th, 1975, unexpectedly became the last interview Jimmy Hoffa ever gave.

CORBIS GIVES UP ON IMAGE & VIDEO LICENSING January 22, 2016 Bill Gates-owned Corbis, for more than two decades the biggest competitor to Getty Images in the photo licensing business, has sold up to a Chinese company, which is making all Corbis’ imagery and motion content available to Getty for licensing outside China.  Corbis announced the sale of its content licensing business and assets to Unity Glory International, an affiliate of VCG, a leading Chinese visual communications and new media business. Shortly afterwards Getty said it is deepening its “long-standing partnership with Visual China Group” to take on the exclusive distribution of Corbis content outside of China. Corbis imagery, video, and historic archival content will shortly be available alongside the existing Getty Images collections of almost 200 million creative and editorial images and videos. Under the terms of the agreement, Unity Glory will own and manage the Corbis Images, Corbis Motion, and Veer licensing brands and all their associated content. The sale does not include the Branded Entertainment Network, Splash, or Greenlight, Corbis’ rights clearance and representation business. Over the coming months, Corbis Images and Corbis Motion content will be migrated to where it will become available alongside existing content. Corbis says the sale of Corbis Images accelerates the company's transformation into an entertainment advertising business with a particular focus on product integration, providing global brands and media agencies with end-to-end access to film, TV, digital and celebrity product placement opportunities. Bill Gates founded Seattle-based Corbis in 1989. Quoted in the Financial Times, Gary Shenk, Corbis’ chief executive, said the company’s image business was profitable but facing “secular challenges”. The price paid by UGI, incorporated in September last year, has not been made public. Following the sale of its image assets, Corbis Entertainment will be rebranded in the coming months, and its other businesses within the division will operate under the new brand name.
