Hey Bloggers, and so in my attempt to follow the latest of the WBAI radio drama series, I came across this email from Mitchell Cohen on one of the many yahoo groups that I have subscribed to lately. Mitchell Cohen has this really cool radio program, Steal This Radio that rocks and is full of great listening. The following are some of Mitchell’s most recent picks. You can listen live for his latest picks of music, poetry and everything else tonight at 6pm on Tribeca Radio. And Mitchell also has his picks for the WBAI 2007 LSB elections that can be found on Indymedia. WBAI elections are happening now and for once might change the direction of the station! Power to the people. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
STEAL THIS RADIO #23
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007, 11 a.m., and
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 6 pm
on Tribeca Radio (Listen Live)
Archived/Podcast after Oct. 30.
Much music and poetry in this week’s show!
Mitchel Cohen recites his poem, “To Comrades Fallen”, for Brad Will and Susan Blake.
Mitchel also gives his picks for the WBAI radio (99.5 FM) listener-member elections to the Local Station Board, and discusses some of the troubles at that listener-sponsored commercial-free Pacifica station.
And, sandwiched by much great music by Manu Chao, Anne Feeney, Dave Rovics, and Phil Ochs, Mitchel reads Henry Miller’s insights and reminiscences about the doctrine of cleanliness. Mitchel ends with another one of his poems “Be Sure to Wear A Condom when You’re Shooting Up (Stay at Home)”. Don’t go outside, don’t do ANYthing, stay home and watch TV ….
Manu Chao: “Clandestino, ” “Desaparecido, ” and Bongo Bong
Anne Feeney: “Let Their Heads Roll,” and “Too Much Monkey Business”
Phil Ochs: “I Ain’t a-Marchin’ Anymore” , and “The War Is Over”
Dave Rovics: “Jenin”
and, opening every show, Mario Savio’s impromptu 1964 speech “Unless You’re Free the Machine will be Prevented from Working at All,” which summed up and immortalized the Berkeley Free Speech Movement and — along with the Civil Rights organizing in the South — kicked off the student movements all across the United States.
