Interview By: Larry Knudsen

Studio West Management

Tell us about yourself?

My maternal family was from North Carolina and comes from a background of Eastern Cherokee, Scots-Irish and English heritage, and my paternal family were Ashkenazi Eastern European

Artist of the Month - Michael Bucher



Michael grew up in a multi-racial neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. In all the diversity, his large family did what they could to ensure that they didn't become an invisible Indian.

His Cherokee ancestors go back to the Trail of Tears and earlier. Prior to the forced removal many Cherokees moved to S.E. Missouri and N.E. Arkansas. Mike and his sisters and brother are only the second generation not to be born in S.E. Missouri. They have been told the stories passed down from generation to generation and encouraged to stay close to their culture.

Warrior of the Month - Vernon Bellecourt

Interview By: Yvonne Shinhoster Lamb

Washington Post

Vernon Bellecourt, who fought to restore land and dignity to Native Americans and against the use of Indian nicknames for sports teams as a longtime leader of the American Indian Movement (AIM), died Oct. 13 of complications of pneumonia at a Minneapolis hospital. He was 75.

Since leaving behind careers as a hair stylist and real estate agent and joining his brother in AIM in the 1970s, Mr. Bellecourt had been in the forefront of the movement to ensure that treaties between Native American tribes and the U.S. government would be fulfilled. He was president of the National Coalition on Racism in Sports and Media and principal spokesman for AIM.

CD Review - The Larry Redhouse Trio - Spirit Progression

Review by: Jamison Mahto

Today it seems as if we've broken through to the other side of the winter and I suit up to get in the game. It's super bowl Sunday and jazz is not a good bike riding music but the I-pod is loaded and I'm riding.

The Larry Redhouse Trio features Larry on piano/keyboards, Robin Horn, son of sax/flute great Paul Horn (who highly endorses the trio) on drums, and Mike Levy on electric and acoustic bass. "Collectively and individually, these very creative guys are the best" --- Paul Horn, world-renowned jazz musician.
