Today on The Christopher Gabriel Program: A little Oscar talk for you this morning. Long show but a good one. One of the better Oscar broadcasts in recent years. One thing in particular we’ll hit: Reuters pointing out 12 Years a Slave made “history as the first movie from a black director to win the film industry’s highest honor in 86 years of the Oscars.” It’s 2014 – is pointing that out really necessary and is it more significant than the film itself? Also, Dylan Wohlenhaus, from KHQ in Spokane, follows up with his week-long trip to Denver visiting marijuana shops. Marty Lenz is in for Monday Sports Rap… All that and more as the Monday CGP is ready to go!

And don’t forget our daily Top 5 @ Noon and your chance to win free lunch at Erbert & Gerbert’s!

Art Phillips from Video Arts is receiving the Ted M. Larson Award at the Fargo Film Festival in a few weeks. Art joins CG in studio.

Wednesday, February 5

Today on The Christopher Gabriel Program: 1:05 pm today, CG will speak with Chicago Tribune reporter Stacy St. Clair, live from Sochi, Russia. The hotel conditions there have been… well, let’s say they’re not exactly what many were expecting. Also, what would you say if we told you a state was considering making two years of public college in that state………. free? And interfaith marriages – years ago, they were frowned upon by many churches. Then they became accepted (some faiths more readily than others). And now, more interfaith marriages are keeping their respective faiths. Is this good, bad… and if/when children arrive, should one faith be chosen for them over the other? Tammy Swift and Dayna Del Val are in for the Culture Watch and CW Calendar, respectively. That and more as we’re ready for the Wednesday CGP!

Thursday, January 30

Today on The Christopher Gabriel Program: Georgia State professor Anthony Lemieux joins CG at 11:10 to discuss the chaos that has enveloped Atlanta after a snow/ice storm crippled the city. Also, The Gracious Girl from Portland, Mindy Lockard! Mindy is a nationally recognized etiquette writer, speaker and television expert with clients ranging from individuals to the University of Oregon Athletics Department. Perhaps she can teach all of us a few things! New Music Thursday welcomes multiple Celebration of Women and their Music award winner, Hannah Westerholm.

Tuesday, January 28

Today on The Christopher Gabriel Program: Joining CG at 11:35 will be John Farrell, a contributor to POLITICO Magazine. He’ll discuss the unusual dynamic of the response to the State of the Union Address, citing his recent article “The State of the Union Curse.” And the State of the Union Address itself – what are you hoping for? Or don’t you care? What does President Obama hope to accomplish? And do his opponents / detractors / enemies even care? The Frank Rich searing commentary on Fox News – it’s an important read, and the timing of him writing it isn’t an accident. AND — the verdict on the second murder trial (or, retrial… Italian law is different than here in the U.S.) of Amanda Knox is due later this week. The CGP followed this case and discussed it at length from the beginning. Does what’s happened over there give you a better appreciation for the U.S. judicial system? Regarding Amanda Knox… could you be friends with her, or perhaps go out with her to a movie, dinner, etc. without thinking about what happened in Italy? All that and more coming on the Tuesday CGP!
