Nokia Develops Table-Top Net Radio

From RAIN:


Nokia’s Home Music Wi-Fi desktop Internet radio player is the company’s first such device. Featuring a design similar to other desktop players, with a small display off-set by a single speaker, the Home Music player has a sleek and smooth look — quite different from those wood-paneled models.In addition to streaming Internet radio and accessing podcasts, the device can play stored music via a home network. And with SPDIF and RCA outputs, you can connect the device to a home stereo or home theater set-up. Read more at Engadget here.

Odetta, Voice of Civil Rights Movement, Dies at 77


December 3, 2008

Odetta, Voice of Civil Rights Movement, Dies at 77

Odetta, the singer whose deep voice wove together the strongest songs of American folk music and the civil rights movement, died on Tuesday at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. She was 77.

The cause was heart disease, said her manager, Doug Yeager. He added that she had been hoping to sing at Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Odetta sang at coffeehouses and at Carnegie Hall, made highly influential recordings of blues and ballads, and became one of the most widely known folk-music artists of the 1950s and ’60s. She was a formative influence on dozens of artists, including Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Janis Joplin.

Her voice was an accompaniment to the black-and-white images of the freedom marchers who walked the roads of Alabama and Mississippi and the boulevards of Washington in the quest to end racial discrimination.

Rosa Parks, the woman who started the boycott of segregated buses in Montgomery, Ala., was once asked which songs meant the most to her. She replied, “All of the songs Odetta sings.”

Odetta sang at the march on Washington, a pivotal event in the civil rights movement, in August 1963. Her song that day was “O Freedom,” dating to slavery days: “O freedom, O freedom, O freedom over me, And before I’d be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave, And go home to my Lord and be free.”
