First on this week’s second cinematically correct edition Poodle Radio, Colin Marshall talks first to John Johnson, Curator of Anthropology at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, and Ernestine Ygnacio de Soto. They’re the writer and star, respectively, of 6 Generations: A Chumash Family History, the documentary playing at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival that traces de Soto’s Chumash family tree, whose history complexly intertwines with the history of Santa Barbara itself. Then, by phone from San Luis Obispo, filmmaker and Vietnam War veteran Pete Pepper discusses Killing Memories, the film that documents he and his soldiers’ return to Vietnam to revisit the places where they fought and reintroduce themselves to the North Vietnamese soldiers who they fought.
This week’s musical selections, organized as always by Pop Culture Editor Aly Comingore, include tracks from Interpol, School of Seven Bells, and Rachel Fannan, all of whom are scheduled to play S.B. soon. You can tune into Poodle Radio live every Tuesday morning from 8-9 a.m. on KCSB, 91.9 FM in Santa Barbara or on KCSB’s webcast at KCSB.org.
