Legendary Locals, Sleep Help, and A Dirt Band Founder: March 9-13 on JX

The series of "Legendary Locals" books takes in JPR's hometown; we'll talk to the author in the coming week. 

We'll also get some helpful hints on how to sleep better at night and meet one of the founding fathers of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

It's another big week on the Jefferson Exchange, March 9th through 13th.

What follows is a partial list of confirmed guests; content may change without notice.
Monday, March 9, 2015/9:00        Legendary Locals Of Ashland
Arcadia Publishing has figured out how to sell a lot of books in a lot of small towns.  Arcadia publishes books of historical pictures from towns all over the country.  The second wave is a set of books about the "Legendary Locals;" the noteworthy people in the history of a community.  "Legendary Locals of Ashland" is now out.  Author and frequent local newspaper contributor Sam Wheeler joins us to talk about the process and the people.  

Tuesday, March 10, 2015/9:00        Eggs And Making: Art Before Breakfast
Some of us are just born to make art.  Some of us get hives at the very thought of picking up a paintbrush.  Danny Gregory isn't picky; he seems to think we should all make an effort to express ourselves through art.  In his book "Art Before Breakfast," Danny offers exercises in art--some can be done in five or ten minutes--to spur creativity for a richer life.  He visits to talk about highlights in his approach.  

Wednesday, March 11, 2015/8:30        VENTSday
Our weekly VENTSday segment puts the listeners front and center.  We throw a pair of topics on the table, and let callers and emailers vent--politely--on those topics.  Topics range from the global to the hyper-local, and all responsible opinions are welcome.  We bring the topics, you bring the opinions.  It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or emailing JX@jeffnet.org.

Wednesday, March 11, 2015/9:00        Forget The Inside: "Taming The Outer Child"
For a few years there, talk of healing the "inner child" was all over the place.  The Eagles' song "Get Over It" might have hastened the demise of that talk.  Now comes psychotherapist Susan Anderson with a different slant: the outer child.  Anderson says THAT'S the part of us that often gets us in trouble.  She offers perspective in her book "Taming Your Outer Child."  And she joins us with details of her approach.  

Thursday, March 12, 2015/8:00        Gambling Recovery Services For Latinos
As Oregon's Latino population grows, so do the numbers of people with issues to address.  Those issues include problem gambling.  Many services to help habitual gamblers are aimed at English speakers, but now the Oregon Health Authority and the lottery are joining forces with a Latino group to provide additional services.  We learn about the new approaches.  

Thursday, March 12, 2015/9:00        Jude Bijou Puts You To Sleep
Jude Bijou followed in her father's footsteps by going into the field of psychology.  But after a time, she realized she was miserable, and set about making changes.  Her current approach to therapy is more holistic than what she began with.  It even includes ideas on life disruptions like sleeping poorly.  She joins us for a perusal of her ideas and results.  

Friday, March 13, 2015/8:00        Dirt Band Founder John McEuen
John McEuen was there at the very beginning, the dawn of dirt.  Okay, not dirt itself, but the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.  McEuen is a founding member of NGDB, and he plays Ashland tonight (March 13).  He visits our studio, banjo on his knee, to talk and play.
