Healthcare Jobs President Obama's State of the Union address last night focused on jobs, but he also talked about health care, a priority of his first year in office. Overhaul of the nation's healthcare system seems stalled since the Democrats lost their supermajority in the Senate, but Obama called on lawmakers to keep moving forward. How are Californians reacting to this? Capital Public Radio's Healthcare Reporter Kelley Weiss joins us from our Capitol Bureau to talk about it. She'll also tell you why healthcare continued to add jobs, even in a deep recession. This is part of Capital Public Radio and The Sacramento Bee's Road to Recovery series.

"Motown Jukin'" The Motown sound has turned 50. In 1959, producer Berry Gordy founded two record labels in Detroit: Tamla and Motown. The next year, he joined them. Over the years, Motown's artists included many of the greatest in pop and soul history, including Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye. A new dance show celebrates that music. It's called "Motown Jukin'" and it's playing at Sacramento State. You'll meet some of the members of Sacramento Black Art of Dance and hear about the production. This segment originally aired Oct. 29, 2009.
