On the April 29 edition of The Local Take on WCLK, I spoke with former U. S. Ambassador to Venezuela Charles Shapiro about the World Affairs Council and their Sixth Annual Health Summit taking place in Atlanta on May 8.

I spoke last week on The Local Take on WCLK with Marilyn Winn of Women on the Rise about the new Marijuana Law #17-01152 in Atlanta.

This law seeks to eliminate prison and felony charges from being applied to citizens who are apprehended with small amounts of marijuana. Research conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union/ACLU shows that while Americans use marijuana at the same rates, black people are 3.73 times more likely to be arrested and charged for marijuana use.

Five time Grammy-winning Jazz Vocalist, Diana Krall is back with a new record on Verve, Turn Up The Quiet. She works out the American Songbook and is produced by fellow Grammy-winner Tommy Lipuma. This new effort features more Jazz standards and, fewer Pop and Rock covers that she's favored on recent records. You can hear cuts from Turn Up The Quiet at various times on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.  For more about Dianna Krall, click here.
