Ladysmith Black Mambazo has brought their joyful vocal music from South Africa to the world for over half a century, their music rising from isicathamiya, the music of the mines. That tradition is respected and extended on the new Ladysmith Black Mambazo CD, Walking in the Footsteps of Our Fathers. 

White Bird Clinic

Friends, family and countless members of Eugene's homeless community have lost a tireless advocate. Robert "Bob" Dritz, one of the earliest administrators of White Bird Clinic, died peacefully in hospice on January 15th.  For this tribute, KLCC's Tiffany Eckert sat down with two of his colleagues at White Bird to talk about the man and his legacy.
