KSFR is talking about a topic today that is important to all of us, but most especially to teens and their families.  That topic is cyberbullying.  And it affects one our of every three teens in America.  We kick off this feature with excerpts from the song "Hey Bully" which was co-written and recorded by young country artist Morgan Frazier.  Frazier says that as a kid she was bullied at school.  She joined forces with the organization "Stand for the Silent" to campaign against bullying.  KSFR reporter Mary Lou Cooper brings us the story.

Pioneering horror filmmaker George A. Romero passed away Sunday at the age of 77. Romero directed the original Night of the Living Dead and its sequels, as well as Creepshow, The Crazies, and many other titles before retiring from directing in 2009.

Composer Donald Rubinstein is responsible for the scores to Romero's films Martin, Knightriders and Bruiser. His score for Martin has been called one of the "100 Coolest Soundtracks of All Time" by Mojo magazine, and he now lives and works in Santa Fe.

Rubinstein joined us in the studio to talk about Romero's artistry, life, and impact.
