Civic Cipher

Civic Cipher is a weekly radio show/webcast/podcast hosted by Ramses Ja and Q. Ward. This show is dedicated to empowering Black and Brown voices, allowing them to engage directly with their communities as well as the general population. Self-determination is critical to securing a future free of oppressive systems, and Civic Cipher exists to facilitate discussions toward this end. Furthermore, Civic Cipher seeks to inform non-POC allies who may not be privy to these types of discussions and optics. Finally, Civic Cipher seeks to provide long-form conversations in spaces where there is often a lack of significant resources, potent dialogue, or the necessary engagement for facilitating a healthy and productive civil discourse.

Radio Free Albany Blues Show

with Larry Becker

This two-hour guided tour of blues artists is produced in Albany, New York at the studio of WCAA-LP. Curated and conversational blues, with some Jazz, R&B, a little Rock and some surprises. The blues played is typically from around the country by bluesmen and blueswomen, some well-known, some a bit eclectic or rare. We do play well-known blues standards, but there’s also just excellent blues music that listeners may never have heard before.

Each piece is preceded by a minute or two of interesting information about it, first in Spanish, then in English.  is a weekly two-hour bilingual show of classical music “with a Latin connection”.
