In Memory of Forest February 21, 2013 | 7:00 pm

Jeff Johnson will report on Sunday's memorial for Forest, an Occupy Camper that passed away recently. I know his death was mentioned last show, but it looks as though a bunch of former Occupy folks, including me, will be attending the memorial at the old campsite. It will be kind of like a reunion, and there should be some interesting commentary to relay from that.

Also, Artspeak Radio starts at 7:30pm
