WBAI — A Pivotal Time
WBAI-FM Radio is at yet another pivotal time in its history – now is the time to make your voice heard!
As a rare independent media outlet in New York City, with its 50,000 effective watt signal that emanates from atop the Empire State Building, WBAI takes no corporate money for programming and is funded by listener support. The station has a unique governance structure of listener oversight. The “Independent” delegates whom you voted for on the Local Station Board have made major gains despite an often tumultuous atmosphere. The station is now heading in the right direction, but we still need your support and involvement to ensure that additional work succeeds in saving the station … and the Pacifica Network.
Here’s the raw audio of a fascinating discussion between Felipe Luciano and Bobby Seale, Chair of the Black Panther Party, that aired on WakeUp Call on Friday July 8, 2011.
