We'll hear about what's happening in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and India; three out of the many countries devasted by the earthquake and tidal waves that hit Asia. Learn about relief efforts as well as the complex dividing lines in these countries that make relief and recovery complicated. Hear about MC and producer Lyrics Born - his acclaimed CD Later That Day, musical influences, Japanese heritage and up-coming New Years eve show. Also, we'll hear about two new books in which the authors' lives are closely tied to their unique communities. William Wong comes on to talk about his book filled with historic photos of Oakland's Chinatown. We'll also learn about a barefoot doctor in Vietnam in the book 4th Uncle in the Mountain.
