FOLIO 



FEBRUARY 1991

Report to the Listeners 

Valerie van Isler. Inierim General Manager 

"Why are you speukiiii^ out against the war, Dr King? Why 
are you joining the voices of dissent? Well, I have seven 
major reasons for bringing the war into the field ofm\ 
moral vision..." — Martin Luther King, Jr. 

As our Februar> Folio went to press — the day after 
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s birthday — the United States 
had just launched one of the most massive aerial attacks in 
history against the nation of Iraq. In yet another midnight 
strike, hundreds of fighter bombers and cruise missiles 
hit the major cities of Baghdad and Basra at 2:30 in the 
morning. President Bush had authorized "Operation Desert 
Storm" and started another war in the Middle East. 
Throughout the chilling days when every diplomatic ini- 
tiative, proposal or plan was frustrated by Washington or 
Baghdad or others, the voices of peace, ignored by the 
major media, began to break through the thundering silence 
in this country and bring this conflict into the nation's field 
of moral vision. 

WBAI was here to bring you the call to conscience before 
the guns began, after the firestorm in the desert started, and 
\v hen the body bags began to come home. In fact, we have 
taken a leadership role in this nation's community radio net- 
work with our coverage of the Middle East in programs 
like "The Stakes in the Gulf: The Countdown to War." This 
national teach-in, sponsored by the Campaign for Peace, 
featured the brilliant analyst Professor .Noam Chomsky, 
renow ned scholar Professor Eqbal Ahmed, and author 
Barbara Ehrenreich. 

During these fateful days, we broadcast the "International 
Forum on the Gulf Crisis" with former U.S. Attorney General 
Ramsey Clark. British parliamentarian Sir Anthony Benn. 
and scientist Professor .Michio Kaku. We began this pro- 
gram with the words: "Ladies and gentlemen, the United 
States has just bombed Iraq. ..and the war has started...." 
We immediaiel) went to crisis mode with 24-hour coverage 
and reporting from our sources in the Gulf — Jordan, Israel, 
and the West Bank — and in Europe and around the world. 
Many thousands of people in cities and towns all across 
the United States and Canada were tuned in to WBAI radio 
as we presented these special reports. And we went to 
Washington to bring you live coverage of the demonstra- 
tions at the White House and on Capitol Hill. Along the 
way. we have conducted some of the best interviews on the 
impact of this war on the lives of the people in the region 
and at home. So miiny of you joined us in 1990 lor our 
coverage of the U.S. invasion of Panama. Stay with us now 
as we continue our comprehensive coverage of the Gulf 
( risis. We will be here lor the duration.... 

This February, as we dedicate special programming 
lor African American History month, we acknowledge the 
enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his 
profound message of peace to all the world.

Saving the Audubon 

by Peggy Dye 

Activist and writer Peggy Dye is a self-described 
"happv colunmist" on Emanations (Sundays. 8 :30PM I. 
and a "fan of Shelton W'aldcn" ^VValden's Pond, 
Mondays. 1:30AM: Wednesday Morning Show, 
6:00AM). She is also a founding member of the Save 
the Audubon Coalition. 

Last February, 400 men and women, mostly in their 
20s and mostly Black and Latino, stamped and cheered 
in bitter cold streets in a march to launch a movement 
aimed at saving the Audubon Ballroom from a devel- 
opment plan that would erase it from Harlem. 

The venerable but run-down Audubon and adjoin- 
ing San luan Theater were once home to Black jazz 
bands, Jewish vaudeville. Hispanic theater, and to the 
founding of the Transit Workers Union. Their halls 
were a rallving point for revolutionaries, such as 
Puerto Rican nationalist Pedro Albizu Campos and 
Malcolm X. In fact, it was in the ballroom that' 
Malcolm X was assassinated 23 years ago. 

To preserve the Audubon as an historic landmark 
and cultural center, the Save the Audubon Coalition 
(STAC) challenged the city and Columbia University 
to scrap their plan for a gene-splicing, virus-snooping, 
life-tinkering biotechnology park-for-profit on the 
Audubon site and several others nearby. P'or almost a 
year, our black-led yet integrated group — including 
environmentalists. preser\'ationists. Columbia students. 
and political activists — has organized and protested. 

Some would say we've already won our battle and 
should feel satisfied at having moved the immovable 
at City Hall. Last August, at the eleventh hour of the 
final meeting of the Board of Estimate, the Dinkins 
administration hatched a deal to save the facade or a 
slice of the Audubon Ballroom for a "Malcolm X mon- 
ument" in the new biology factory. 

The details have yet to be fixed. City press releases 
talk about preserving 55 percent of the ballroom prop- 
er, but language in the agreement between Columbia 
and the city actually calls for saving whatever is 
financially feasible. But with "fiscal crisis ' the words 
of the dav, who knows what the city will deem feasible? 

We do know that the city intends to provide rich 
subsidies — about S30 million initially — to Columbia 
and its partners in the development project. 

Audubon partisans, although Black-led, are not 
going to let our first Black mayor off the hook. 
Occupving the ballroom on Election Day eve. youthful 
members of STAC .sent Dinkins a letter stating, "While 
countless numbers of our people go homeless, suffer 
from inadequate health care and are subject to improp- 
er education, we abhor the city of New York's finding 
(monev) to underwrite the construction of an unnec- 
essary and community-destabilizing facility." 

STAC won't be placated by a slice of the Audubon. 
Over Christmas week, our attorney at the Center for 




Constitutional Rights filed suit against the city to kill 
the entire project. The action has several grounds, 
including charges that the city government has blocked 
public commentary on the environmental impact state- 
ment, and failed even to look at the public health haz- 
ards of a biotechnology factory complex in an urban 
center. 

Six months before he died, Malcolm X spoke at the 
Audubon. He called for a "cultural center in Harlem 
which will include people of all ages in all the arts ... 
covering the entire spectrum of Afro-American history 
... [tol be a journey to our rediscovery of ourselves, 
[to] unbrainwash an entire people." 

As a Black woman, I celebrate our efforts over the 
last year to act on Malcolm X's challenge. Reclaiming 
the Audubon translates a global yearning for commu- 
nity, self-identity, and culture into the leading lan- 
guage of the city — real estate. The real bottom line in 
the Audubon struggle is the commitment by the grass 
roots to move with the higher power of the human spirit, 
which transcends governments, knocks on the door of 
politics-as-usual, and says: we dare to seek a richer way, 
so we become all that we can be as free human beings.

From the 
Program Director 

by Andrew Philips 

Since Spring, I have been working 
with the Program Council; since 
October 10th. we have discussed 
changes based on my "ten page 
memo", and atter due consideration 
we will implement these changes as 
of February 1st. 

First, an update on some recent 
changes. Wednesday evenings have 
become "information night" with Ex- 
plorations. The Zeitgeist Hour Off the 
Hook. The Personal Computer Show, 
and Earthwatch. This block of info- 
technology programs is proving 
popular among our listeners. New 
York Collage, with Nancy Rodriguez, 
has moved to Thursdays from 9—^ 
10:00PM, (except that the last 
Thursday of each month will be a 
special Live from the Nuyoncan 
Poets' Cafe.) On Monday. Malachy 
McCourt has replaced Al Angeloro in 
the 4:30— 6:00PM Talkback I s\o\. 

Saturday mornings, Lunchpail. with 
Paul Gorman, will run from 10:30AM 
to Noon, ending one half hour earlier. 
Housing Notebook moves earlier 
(Noon— 1 :00PM), and has graciously 
yielded the last Saturday of the 
month to Disabled in Action Speaks. 
a community which deserves a 
regular program on WBAI. Ed 
Haber 's Piper in the Meadow Stray - 
/ng follows from 1 :00— 2:30PM, while 
the next hour will be set aside for 
Women's programming. HearS Now. 
from 3:30^:30, brings to our air 
new composers and music seldom 
heard elsewhere. Soundtracks and 
The Golden Age of Radio, two 
popular shows moved from Sunday, 
should round out a strong Saturday 
lineup. 

On Sunday, Creative Unity moves to 
10:30—12:30 at night, following 
Emanations. They will alternate with 
J Smooths Underground Railroad, 
whose host, John Randolph, informs 
us, "The media have fostered an 
image of rappers as creven savages 
whose words inspire gang violence. 



Arenas have banned rap music, few rap 
records get commercial airplay, and 
recent puritanical crusades have 
scared some stores into taking rap 
records off the shelf. WBAI. always 
promoted as the voice of the voiceless, 
now will provide an outlet for African- 
Amencan youths strongest voice." The 
combination should work well; J 
Smooth invites youth into our audience, 
while Creative Unity presents radio 
drama and ideas. From 1 :00AM. Syd- 
ney Smith will return with Carrier Wave, 
providing continuity of Live Radio in the 
slot. 

[Monday, while Margot Adier is on Sab- 
batical, Peter Lamborn Wilson's 
Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade will 
alternate with Betsy Lenke. from 
11:45Pfv1— 1;30AM, while Danah Gef- 
fen will alternate with Walden's Pond. 
Tuesday, Bill Farrars Jazz SamplerW\\\ 
now alternate with Stolen Moments. We 
need to keep Bill in our line-up, and this 
is a reasonable compromise until fur- 
ther work can be done. The final change 
set at press time is on Friday, where 
Jordyn Tyson's Unsung Heroesv/Wl now 
alternate with the Black Rock Coalition. 

I feel these program changes bring 
more consistency and flow to our over- 
all programming. We are beginning to 
redress three major areas of weakness 
in our lineup — Women's programming. 
Arts, and youth-onented programs. Live 
radio (46 hours) and music program- 
ming (48 hours) comprise together 
more than half of our programs, while 
arts and public affairs are currently un- 
derrepresented. I expect we will see 
more shortening of programs to tighten 
our format and permit more diversity in 
our line-up. 

In making program changes, the pro- 
gram council, with the program director, 
must consider the Pacifica mandate 
and the perceived needs and desires of 
our audience. Our objective is to create 
the possibility for great programs to 
reach the widest possible audience. As 
a community radio station. WBAI is 
obliged to build diversity and encourage 
a wide variety of producers. Producers 
are encouraged and welcome to attend 
program council meetings each 
Thursday.

Finally, the Mothership has arrived .it 
W'BAI. In the eighties Hip Hop revolu- 
tionised the sound of popular music and be- 
came African (American) youth's only major 
outlet for cultural and political expression. 
As we enter the nineties, the Hip Hop nation 
finds itself under assault from self-appointed 
censors, media distortionists, and commer- 
cial impostors like Vanilla Ice who saturate 
the Pop market while the music's true inno- 
vators remain unheard. Fonunately, WBAI 
enters the decade on the frontlines of the bat- 
tle to keep the music alive, with J Sinooth 
(Hip Hop Radioactivist) smuggling two 
hours of authentic underground sound over 
the airwaves every other Sunday. Tonight's 
premiere episode will feature our favorite 
music from I WO. as well as a review of the 
major events of the year in which Hip Hop 
bumrushed mainstream American culture.

RING DA\ 1991 

IN MEMORIAM: 

GUNTER KOSSODO 

11 APRIL 1918 - 14 NOVEMBER 1990 




Twenty years ago, Gunter Kossodo 
inherited me from a friend uho 
said. "Keep an eye t)n the kid." In 
his living room, I learned more 
about what making music really 
means than I had in music school. 
We listened to fantastic perfor- 
mances, thought, talked, debated... 

After I did a couple of Ring 
Days all by my lonesome. I decid- 
ed it would be much more fun for 
both you and me to invite Gunter 
on the show. It has been. 

Odd things sometimes hap- 
pened, {"d call him with my idea 
for the aspect or point of ^ie\^ I 
thought v^e should delve into, and 
Id usually find out he'd come up 
A ilh the same idea. By the lime we 
got into the studio, though (me at 
the crack of dawn, he after 
Kheingold), we usually had hashed 
iliings out pretty thoroughly, in the 
last moments, as the music ran out. 
wc"d decide what the topic would 
be for that commentary break. 
What did we do during the music'.' 
We talked. Politics. Bach. Tennis. 
\crdi. World War Two. 
Beethoven. The possibility of 
World War Three. Oh, yes, and 
Wagner. And ftxxl! You wouldn't 
believe how much two people 
could pack a^^a\. 

We were completely isolated in 
the control room. One momini;. we 



walked out and were shocked to 
find the ground covered with 
snow. We went to my place and 
talked till the rest of the world 
woke up. 

The last couple of years, 
because of his health, I trekked to 
his place with my trusty equip- 
ment, edited the tapes, and gave 
him the opportunity to hear him- 
self on the air. I won"t tell you 
what he called me when I played 
Melchior's forging scene after the 
tenor of the day just managed to 
get through it. 

When Vlelchior was brought up 
in comparison to another singer, 
Gunter would say, "Ja, ja. OK, but 
lei"s speak of human beings." 
Gunter Kossodo was human 
enough to wear out and die. Yes. it 
was too soon. 

-Someone asked me with whom 
I planned to replace him. No, I 
didn't sock him, but I was (if you 
can imagine it) speechless. 
Replace? Impossible. 

For this year's Ring Day, I've 
rounded up all the commentary 
tapes that I can find from past 
years and will play the best ones 
for you. This will be a very special 
Ring Day and the last one that will 
feature throughout the day m\ 
friend Gunter Kosstxlo. 

Please join me. Munwi

Disabled in Action Speaks 



Sat. noon- 1:00PM Feb. 23 

On July 26. 1990. President Bush signed 
into law the most sitinificant piece of 
civil rights lcgisl;itioii c\ cr brought forth 
for disabled .■Xmcricans. The Americans 
with Disabilities Act (ADA) not only 
protects the rights of people with dis- 
abilities, but provides ihcm with ammu- 
nition to fight discrimliKition on all 
levels. The ADA also covers public ac- 
commodations and services, telecom- 
munication and employment. 

In this first part of a .^-part series, host 
Lynn ,'\lbin and guests take an in-depth 
look at the ADA and its ramifications for 
disabled Americans. Mike Auberger. 
co-founder of the national tiisahility 
rights group AD.\PT. will discuss last 
March's protests in which i(i4 disabled 
activi.sts took over the Capitol Rotunda 
and a congrcssmemlx.'r's office in a final 
effort to have the ADA passed by the 
House of Rcprescnialives before it 
recessed. Marilyn Goldin. policy analyst 
for the Disability Rights Education & 
Defense Fund. Inc.. will address the 
public accommodations segment of the 
law, which inckulcs theaters, hotels, a's- 
i.iiir, lilts. .111(1 prolessidiuil services. 




Ihe most dilliciill barrier to break con- 
tinues to be the oppressive attiluilcs of 
teniporarily able-bodied (LAB) people 
v^lu) rcluse to recogm/e that they, too. 
may one day become members of our 
community. .So tune in: gel informed. 

Disabled in Ailioii Speaks can now be 
heard at this lime on the last Saturday of 
each iiiiinlh.

Dear Max Schmid 
Your program. The Golden Age of 
Radio. IS one I look fon«ard to every 
Sunday since I don't own a TV. and 
don t care to. I am troubled by your 
Jack Benny series which includes 
Rochester, a stereotyped Afro-Amer- 
ican boss lackey. In this day and age. 
when racism runs high in the media 
and stereotypes sucn as the aforemen- 
tioned are gone with the wind, this pro- 
gram has no place on WBAI. which 
justly prides itself on being progres- 
sive, multi-national, multi-raciar and 
anti-biased. 

Don't let your listeners down. Max. 

An old timer who well remembers 
the golden age of radio. 

B. Umpell NYC 



Dear Mr Schmid. 
I am not among those who think 
"Rochester Anderson s character is 
pure stereotype on Jack Benny's radio 
program Jacx made sure that Rochester 
was treated the same as every other 
cast member, and also made nis char- 
acter a lot smarter than Jack's. If there 
are any listeners who object to the 
way Rochester was depicted, it was 
those few lines about gambling (crap 
games) and mild sex jokes [ "Mr Benny, 
did you ever see a Hershey bar with 
all tne almonds m the right places'' "] 
that cause Rochester to sound offen- 
sive ' today In that respect, he was no 
more offensive that way than Phil 
Harris s supposed drinking and il- 
literacy, and Dennis Day s gullibility 
and idiocy. In other words, a charac- 
ter role, not to be taken too seriously 
during a radio show 

Sincerely. B I Grauman 

Long Branch, N J 



Dear WBAI. 
Happy New Year! I would like to 
make a request for 1991 . On behalf of 
the hundreds of fine musicians whose 
music you play on WBAI. I would ask 
you to give them the honor and 
raspecfthey are due by nam/ng them. 
Of course, when a program is about 
music or a musician, you are careful to 
identify them, but 1 am constantly dis- 
mayed at the many times you use 
music as a 'Uller' between segments 
without having the courtesy to say. 
"That was... "It only takes a moment. 

Tm a musician and ethnomusic- 
ologist and I have been made aware ' 
over the years of how Western 
anthropologists have used non-western 
sources shamelessly, recording them 
and selling records without compensa- 
tion to the artist or even identification. 
It makes me cringe when I hear a 
progressive station like BAI doing the 
same thing. I also believe that the 
anonymity denigrates the music itself — 
the care and passion and hard work of 
a musician should not be chopped into 
little anonymous bits and stufred 
between "important"" programs. 



Backtalk! 



Sincerely 



(Ms.) Toby Glukman 
Jamaica, NY 



Dear Backtalk. 
During every marathon, we are fre- 
quently reminded of how iniportant we 
listener-members are to WBAI's con- 
tinued operation and how much the 
station values us. 

The annual hassle to collect our 
premium certainly has made us 
wonder, but the insult to our intel- 
ligence delivered on December 11 
reached some new kind of low. 

Episodes of the ZPPR series "Visit 
New Grimston Anyway" have too often 
turned up missing at air time, but on 
that date, the sound faded down and 
disappeared, obviously before the 
episode ended. 

At that point, the station was five 
minutes behind schedule, but that was 
no fault of this taped production. 
Rather it resulted because. ..the host of 
the previous program lacked the nerve 
to cut off a talkative caller and sign off 
on time. 

There aren t words enough in the 
dictionary to describe such a trashing 
of a show some of us had expected to 
hear in its entirety. Heres a sample, 
however: rude, inconsiderate, con- 
temptuous and contemptible, unprofes- 
sional, bush-league, cheesy ana slimy, 
culturally barbanc. nitwitted, moronic, 
cretinous, etc. 

Such censorship — which is what 
this amounts to, even if caused by 
incompetence instead of malice — is 
totally hypocritical on the part of a 
station tnat touts itself as free-speech 
radio. Listeners deserve an apology. 



Angnly yours.

Dear WBAI. 
Enclosed is my check for $10.00 
as I pledged. Ive been glued to WBAI 
since the upheavals in the Eastern 
Bloc of Europe. I have also been an 
avid listener since the station originated. 
I cant imagine life without WBAI; 
same goes for my family. We are 
original subscrltjers. 

I didnt mind the pitching this time 
because it was accompanied by infor- 
mation, and your pitchers are delight- 
ful, hard-working personalities. Jenny, 
Amy, and Julie are so delicious and 
capable. And Samori, Valerie and the 
others of the news and political staff — 
Leo Cawley, Robert Knight, Dennis — 
such brilliance and dedication; and the 
good Bob Pass and Carletta — I could 
go on and on; we love you all. 

Down with the imperialists! 

Love, B Beyer 

Flushing. NY 
PS. Jenny Bourne has such a 
beautiful voice; is she a singer? 



Dear Andrew Phillips: 
I am a listener and subscriber of 
long-standing, and have been a heavy 
supporter since 1974-75 or so. I used 
to eat. sleep, breathe BAI and could 
not get enough of it. Nowadays, unfor- 
tunately. I listen only infrequently: to 
Simon Loekle when I am awake: to 
Margot Adler. when she is there; and 
to fvlike Feder. Little by little. I have 
given up on WBAI. (I cannot tell you 
to how many station managers and 
program directors I have written, with 
no result at all.) 

Recently, I tuned in during an 
11 :45PM- 1:00AM program and heard 
Sidney Smith substituting lor Margot. 
For the first time in many years, I Telt a 
spark of hope: Sidney was charming, 
literate, interesting, had a balanced 
point of view, and lots of compassion, 
(qualities that 1 have not heard much 
on BAI for these few years) and a 
pleasant voice as well. 

I tried to speak to him during the 
whole 1-14 hours, but was unable to 
get through Judging by the response, 
f was only one of many who were 
taken by Sidney and his thoroughly 
professional program. 

I am therefore hoping that you will 
give Sidney Smith a talk spot of his 
own. so he can attempt to bring back 
some of the glory that was BAI in its 
heyday. 



PRETTY PLEASE"'
