Standing in solidarity with Puerto Rico.


Sixty-six percent of households in 2012 were family households, down from 81 percent in 1970. And the proportion of one-person households increased by 10 percentage points, from 17 percent to 27 percent, during that same time period, thereby proving that people lie on the census. With all these Sons, Dawtas, Muvas, Aunt Vivs, and Uncle Snoops, not to mention Mother Goose, Mother Nature, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, Uncle Sam and Father Time - the whole world is one big happy dysfunctional family.

So, as Thankstaking approaches, play cousins Doe Derek, k(Rob), and special guest Daromi invite you to the ultimate sonic family reunion. Breaking out cold cuts that magnetize the drunkest of uncles to the dance floor, for that old-man-two-step. Pimps by blood or re-lay-shun, whatever your notion of family, we can agree that these are the folks capable of side eyeing you to submission for some you-ought-to-know-better transgression, or slapping the mess out of any outsider that deigns to call you out on the same offense.




Visual artists Kenya (Robinson) and Doreen Garner bring their show #trashDay to Clocktower Radio.

#trashDay elevates the vernacular of urban fiction, reality television, gossip publications, social dance, and fashion, and uses it as a point of departure for satire and social commentary.


Kenya (Robinson) is a community-taught artist from Gainesville, Florida. An aficionado of all things blonde, she is a past resident of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's WorkSpace Program (2009-2010) and the 2010 Triangle Arts Workshop. Her sculptural work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Aljira and the 60 Wall Street Gallery of Deutsche Bank. In addition, her performances have been featured at Rush Arts Gallery, MoMA PS1, The DUMBO Arts Festival, The Kitchen, The Museum of Modern Art (NYC) as well as the Home Section of the New York Times.

An avid blogger, tumblr-er, and mischievous contributor to the Arts & Culture Section of the Huffington Post, Robinson is also the inaugural resident for Recess Activities' online residency ANALOG and an MFA graduate from the School of Art at Yale University.
