Welcome all to the ninth episode of Third Eye Weekly, BreakThru Radio’s new current events podcast. This week marks the 50th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s first one-man exhibition at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles, where he debuted his now famous screen prints of Campbell’s soup cans. In honor of the occasion, we have more of our conversation with Jeff Jaffe, the founder of Pop International Galleries, about the current state of Pop art.

Later in the program, we celebrate BTR’s birthday with the company’s first employee, DJ Latola. He sits down for a discussion on the site’s humble beginnings as well as his own in the industry and the impact the internet is having on music listening habits.
Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Cody Weber. If you’d like to submit a poem for our consideration to be played/read/performed on the show, send the text of your poem in a Word document format to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com. Feel free to send an mp3 of your file but if you do, of course, we’ll have to take the file’s sound quality into consideration. So just be prepared to have one of us read your poem on the air (you know, if we like it) if we can’t tell what you’re saying.
So without further ado…
