Insight: Capitol Chat / World Cup / Billy Mills / Sound Advice: Record Sale




Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler will give a recap on the discussion lawmakers are having about replacing to the $11 billion water bond currently set to go before voters in November. He reported this week that the governor is opposing the existing water bond, which was negotiated by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and lawmakers in 2009, and wants a $6 billion bond instead. 

Meanwhile,  Senate Republicans rejected a $10.5 billion proposed replacement bond from Senate Democrats. That measure does contain $3 billion for storage, but GOP lawmakers criticized a provision that would give authority on how to spend $900 million in Delta ecosystem restoration to a state agency called the Delta Conservancy, rather than the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The US faces Germany in the World Cup beginning at 9 a.m. People will be gathering to watch the game and we’re hopping Bob Moffitt will be out and about to talk with us about soccer mania.

It’s the 50th anniversary of a 10,000 meter Olympic competition that’s been called "the greatest race of the 20th century" by Running Times. Billy Mills, the second Native American to win a gold medal, joined us to talk about the legacy of his race ahead of the 2012 summer Olympics and we’re re-airing that interview in honor of the anniversary. 


Capital Public Radio will be holding its final record sale this weekend. Capital Public Radio Jazz Announcer Dennis Newhall joins us to explain why used records aren’t selling even though many people believe there to be a resurgence in vinyl. Plus, he’ll spin a few tracks off some old LPs.  Capital Public Radio’s record sale runs June 27 to June 29 in the Howe ‘bout Arden Shopping Center.
