The Monday morning broadcast of “The Freak Power Ticket” (January 28, 11am-12noon) will feature two half-hour segments.
First up is a preview of the new documentary, Occupy The Movie, produced and directed by Corey Ogilvie and co-produced by Andrew Halliwell. Guest host Harry Lawton, KCSB’s special correspondent at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), will join host Ted Coe as they interview the brain trust behind the most in-depth cinematic work to date on the global impact of Occupy Wall Street. Featuring interviews with thinkers and activists like Cornel West, Noam Chomsky, Christopher Hedges, Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men, and many Occupy organizers, this documentary about the most stirring social-justice movement in decades had its world premiere last weekend at the SBIFF. It is one of ten films in competition for the Fund for Santa Barbara’s Social Justice Award for Documentary Film.
During the radio show’s second half-hour, Coe shifts gears with a salute to SBIFF “American Riviera Award” recipient Quentin Tarantino, who will be honored on Wednesday night, January 30th, at the Arlington Theatre.
Tarantino’s soundtracks clearly inspire much of “The Freak Power Ticket”‘s regular mix of film music and dialogue. Monday’s broadcast will revisit writer/director/actor Tarantino’s debut 1992 feature, the heist-thriller Reservoir Dogs, and its influential soundtrack album, by way of original songs, covers, audio snippets, critical commentary, and more.
“The Freak Power Ticket” airs on Mondays in the Winter from 11am-12Noon.
