This show should be of special interest to podcasters who play music and to musicians who wish to have their music played on podcasts. Oh, and to anyone who wants to win some free stuff, hear a great interview and some stellar music!

MikeyPod 64 | Activist Ray Hill

I first met Ray Hill in the early 90’s when I became involved with Queer Nation. As a fledgling queer activist, he was always someone I looked up to, as I do to this day. As my time here in Houston is coming to an end, I felt that Ray was one of those people I needed to talk to before I left.

Among his accomplishments are winning four Federal suits against the City of Houston, including a landmark First Amendment US Supreme Court Case: Houston v Hill 107 S.Ct 2502.
Ray was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the ACLU, Texas in 2005. winning four Federal suits against the City of Houston, including a landmark First Amendment US Supreme Court Case: Houston v Hill 107 S.Ct 2502.
