Artist Jorge Arrellano, who did the seeds of anarchy t-shirt for the Punk Rock Farmer, is one of the artists. To find out more, RadioACTive's Lara Jones visited him at the site of his mural, This Is How We Move, at SLC Center for Science Education, 1350 Goodwin Ave., SLC.

Meet the DJ: Steve Rivetti, host of World Village, Saturdays from 7-9 p.m. Since taking over the show from Eduman, Steve has added his own touch to an eclectic mix of music from around the world. How'd he do it? He began volunteering about 10 years ago, tabling at KRCL events in the community, then answering phones during Radiothon. With his vast collection of world music, especially Reggae, Steve began filling in on World Village and Smile Jamaica. Take a listen to the show to find out how young he was when he first started listening to KRCL, how his late father inspired him, getting lost in the desert, and a story about getting arrested in Mexico. 

  • Tune in every Saturday night at 7 p.m. for World Village with Steve Rivetti, You'll get two hours of traditional and contemporary grooves from across the globe. Afrobeat, Salsa, Bollywood, World Jazz, and more, all blended together into a unique weekly mix of international sounds.
