HOUR 1: Out And About – Conversations with People on the Street about Questions That Matter

What values do we share that make us ‘American’?
Americans are a union of otherwise unrelated “natives”. We make and remake ourselves all the time. The parts that make up America are individual men and women, making the United States truly an association of citizens. Our people are Americans simply by virtue of coming together, retaining to lesser or greater degrees remembrances of our origins. We are many in one, yet we stand together as one because of your values. What values make an ‘American’? Join the discussion!

Hour 2: (Begins at 0:53 minutes) Arts Interview with Tyler Stenson


I talk to Tyler Stenson about what being ‘American’ means to him and how it has informed his songwriting, and play tracks handpicked by Tyler. Stenson took time out from his busy music schedule to appear on the show, including recently opening for LeAnn Rimes who tweeted after the show “You make some great music friend. I love your voice”. Known as a singer-songwriter of elegant folk he has twice been named Songwriter of the Year by the Portland Songwriters Association and Best Male Artist at the 2011 Portland Music Awards. He has played shows all over America and had songs appear in National advertising campaigns and TV shows. For more information on this amazing artist go to
