Speaking Out, Over And Over


The heyday of street theater ended decades ago.  But Patrick "Stoney" Burke's performances did not. 

Burke exercises his first amendment rights, sort of like a personal trainer exercises a client.  He's been relentless in his mission to question the doings of the rich and powerful, often with great humor. 

It got him arrested, more than once.  From Eugene to Berkeley to the Republican National Convention, he's stayed busy. 

Oh, the stories he could tell... and does, in Weapon: Mouth, his book.  Stoney visits the studio prior to an appearance at Southern Oregon University.
