The R.O.I.: Pete Earley and NAMI Utah

March 5, 2015 in Uncategorized by Lara Jones

The R.O.I. brings you stories of people, non-profits and businesses who create a positive return on investment in the community. Pete Earley is a journalist-turned-advocate after his son was diagnosed with a mental illness. As his son’s condition spiraled, Pete turned to doctors and even the police for help, but quickly found out that the health care and criminal justice systems in this country are broken when it comes to dealing with the mentally ill. Earley applied his journalistic skills to the issue, which resulted in a Pulitzer prize nominatination for his book Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness. NAMI Utah invited him to the Beehive State earlier this year to share his findings – which aren’t that different from what he’s found in Utah.


The ROI - Pete Earley and NAMI Utah     


Pete Earley was in Utah recently as a guest of NAMI Utah, which will host the 7th annual rally FOR ADDICTION AND MENTAL HEALTH RECOVERY at the Capitol Friday, March 6. It starts with a walk to remember on the south side of the people’s house at 11 a.m. NAMI Utah also will hold its 2nd annual Re-Framing Mental Illness spring fundraiser dinner Friday, March 13.

music meets movies – the 78 project

March 3, 2015 in Uncategorized by KrclAdmin MusicMeetsMovies_250x250

Join KRCL on Thursday, March 12 at Brewvies Cinema Pub for The 78 Project. The movie follows two filmmakers as they travel cross-country, armed with a vintage microphone, an authentic 1930s Presto direct-to-acetate disc recorder, and blank 78-rpm lacquer discs to capture performances by contemporary artists of public-domain songs in a single take, inspired by the “field recording” style of such ethnomusicologists as Alan Lomax. Along the way, the filmmakers also visit various music experts, who offer a history of the recording industry and glimpses into the vaults that contain America’s rarest records.
The 78 Project, Thursday, March 12 @ Brewvies
Tickets at 6pm. Movie at 7pm and 9pm

Following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, there were widespread riots throughout cities in America. The Night James Brown Saved Boston details the story of how James Brown and producers at WGBH helped to keep potential riots at bay in Boston by holding a concert and broadcasting it live on TV in an attempt to keep people at home, glued to their sets watching the Godfather of Soul perform. When the concert ended, WGBH played it again, and again.

Join us on Thursday, Feb 12th Brewvies Cinema Pub for The Night James Brown Saved Boston, a film by David Leaf that documents that remarkable concert and the politics around it.

Tickets at 6pm – Screenings at 7pm and 9pm. Bring your KRCL member card for 2 for 1 entry.
