On Friday June 13, Phil Rosenberg spoke with Loretta Chin, an S&P alumnus now working as a reporter for the Canarsie Courier. She has been writing about the decline of the number of children eligible for entry to K-3 gifted and talented programs in NYC public schools--and the decline of those programs in number. We also listened to the music of EWALD and Dan Kinch talked to founder Jason Ewald and his bandmates bassist Jim Saxa and keyboardist Kevin Bernstein. Since arriving in New York City in 2007, Jason has seen his creative growth blossom, fed by the hum of city life and the energy of its inhabitants. His music is inspired by the refined sounds of 70s pop, the greasy soul of Muscle Shoals, the explorations of jazz, and the insistent rhythms of funk and rock.
