MARATHON EDITION 




NEW YORK LIVE! January's Marathon to explore 
issues and imasination in our City and our world 



by John J. Simon 

Marathon! A necesary tradition? An unpleasant 
imperative? Or an opportunity for the very best in 
listener-sponsored radio!! Clearly it can be all 
three. But this January at WBAI it will certainly be 
the latter. The theme of the 1987 s January fund- 
raiser, which begins on Friday the 9th, is "New 
York Live." The goal is $170,000— in 17 days. 

Of course, live radio was invented at WBAI. In 
the early '60s, Bob Pass, Larry Josephson, and Steve 
Post brought free-form talk and invention to the 
ears of New York, a style that has been widely 
copied over the years and across the country. But 
they were not alone; Chris Koch, Marcia Tomp- 
kins, and Dale Minor took their (then suitcase- 
sized) tape recorders throughout the American 
South, Vietnam, and the streets of New York to 
capture the sounds that defined an era. If you were 
a WBAI listener then, you know that one of the 
most important ways that you discovered the 
world was with the electronic ears that independent 



radio gave you.

CONTRAGATE 
hits the air 

BY AMDP.EW PHILLIPS 

We knew the Iran-Nicaragua illegal arms and 
funds transfer story would be a big one — very big. 
We knew that there was nowhere to take it and 
treat it with the importance it deserved except 
WBAI. And so 'CONTRAGATE" was born, not a 
planned and carefully orchestrated production by 
the state and mainstream media charged with the 
watchdog role, but a moment-to-moment explora- 
tion created from inside and outside the intestines 
of this gritty radio station by producers and lis- 
tener-supporters that abhor the manipulation of 
news and information. 

There are so many angles to be covered, wide 
cracks for some of the most important stories to fall 
through. WBAI is here to catch those stories and 
squeeze them for the truth. That is how we are ap- 
proaching the biggest story to rack the nation and 
the world since Watergate. "CONTRAGATE, " 
on WBAI each weekday morning at 8 a.m., as well 
as further coverage on WBAI's evening news at 
6:30 and 11:00 p.m. Reporters Dennis Bernstein and 
Connie Blitt with their colleague Vince Bielski have 
covered the contra-drug connection for a wide vari- 
ty of print outlets. Extensive coverage in IN THESE 
TIMES has been the result of their investigation 
(NOTE: See accompanying article.)

MARTIN L. SOKOL , producer of WBAI's 
"Through the Opera Glass" for the last twelve 
years, died of a heart attack in late December. 
Marty was general director of the Bel Canto 
Opera, first producer of the New York City 
Opera radio series, and author of The New 
York City Opera: An American Adventure. 
At the time of his death he was at work on a 
book-length study of the recordings of Enrico 
Caruso. 

Marty typified the best of WBAI: his 
broadcasts not only brought his listeners the 
best of opera recordings, but matched them 
with wit and erudition. 

His colleagues and friends, the manage- 
ment and staff of WBAI will miss him. We 
want to express our deepest condolences to 
his wife, Regina, and his son, Christopher. 
The station plans a broadcast tribute to 
Marty in the near future.

Answer the call to 
answer the calls 
(and have breakfast with us) 

The marathon depends on you in many 
ways, not the least of which is in answering 
the pledge phones. So call now— at (212) 
279-0707 — and let us know when you can 
come in, help WBAI, and make friends with 
other listeners. 

One of the key pledge times is the early 
morning. About half the people who will 
listen to the station tune in between 6 and 9 in 
the morning. But traditionally this has been 
the toughest time of the day to get people to 
come in. So this year we are going to make a 
bit more noise about our "breakfast club. ' If 
you come in and answer phones with us 
before 9AM, well make sure that there is 
plenty of orange juice, bagels and danish, and 
coffee — in addition to the good company of 
the WBAI early risers — our breakfast club. 

»Call and volunteer now: (212) 279-0707. 
Hope to see you soon. 



We interrupt this FOLIO for a 
special CONTRAGATE bulletin! 

WBAIs special "CONTRAGATE in- 
vestigations unit" will be on the air all 
through the January Marathon. As the hear- 
ings resume into the scandals about Arms to 
Iran, Money to the Contras (Drugs to the 
States?), and the purported theft of foreign 
policy by President Reagan and his cronies, 
we will preempt regular programming for 
gavel-to-gavel coverage together with the 
kind of reporting and analysis that only the 
WBAI news department together Willi Connie 
Blitt, Robert Knight, Judith Callas, Andrew 
Phillips, Diana Johristone in Paris, Dennis 
Bernstein, et. al., can bring you. 

You get this unique coverage (and the other 
media do too — as we can tell from their calls) 
because we are independent. Lislener-spon- 
sorship makes us beholden to no one. Let's 
keep it that waylll 

CONTRAGATE coverage is expensive. We 
need you to support us as never before. Call 
and make your marathon pledge now.

continued. . . 



And so it's been through the years. . Bill O'Neill 
told me that his first association with the station 
was taking a tape recorder up to Columbia Univer- 
sity to bring listeners a lecture that was available 
nowhere else in the mass media. WBAI's remote 
crew — including, but decidedly not limited to Dan 
fmton, iNlatalie Kudelis, Alina Aviia, Feter Bochan, 
James Irsay, Anthony Sloan, Samori Marksman, 
Ivy Young, Gisele Mills, and Paul Williams, along 
with numerous others, whose names you will find 
in the program listings — have been busy the last 
few months collecting the variety of sounds that 
make this city so rich (and, by the way, make New 
Yorkers so interesting). 

"New York Live" will bring you a kaleidoscope of 
treasures: Forty years of the legendary Living 
Theater, the live broadcast of African National 
Congress President Oliver Tambo's acceptance of 
the Olaf Palme Award at Riverside Church; the fas- 
cinating — and as yet unsung — new bands from 
clubs throughout the city; live music from the New 
Muse, Brooklyn's new community-based museum, 
as well as un-FOLIOed specials in public affairs, 
radio drama, literature, and music. The culmina-' 
tion, we hope — and that's where you come in: the 
goal is $172,000, remember?— will be on January 
24th when the Freds— Herschkowitz and Kuhn— 
produce yet another Laugh Day, proving that this 
station can do something other than simply be 
earnest. 

Having said that, it is, nonetheless, time to be 
earnest once again. Marathons are not jokes— they 
are the lifeblood of this radio station. This January 
we have cut the marathon back from three weeks to 
two (actually 17 days). This means that you, our 
listeners and sponsors, will have to help us achieve 
a daily average of $10,000 in pledges every day. 
Last year we averaged only about $7,500 a day, but 
in the past WBAl has been able to raise $10,000 a 
day, and more. The other four Pacifica stations do 
this more or less routinely. We know that we can do 
it. Surely WBAI listeners would prefer less pitching. 
■ "'"We would like to have to do less, too. So let's get 
together on this. If you call in and pledge the first 
time you hear us ask for money, we'll get back to 
regular programming just as soon as we reach the 
goal. 

And don't forget to honor your pledge. Don't 
wait for your bill. Mail your check now to WBAI- 
Pacifica, P.O. Box 12345, Church Street Station, 
New York, NY 10249, and remember to include, 
your name and address on a separate piece of 
paper. 




MORE FROM CONTRAGATE. . . 

Documentary producer and journalist Andrew 
Phillips has been a regular on WBAl in recent 
years. He brought Bernstein and his team to a regu- 
lar program spot on WBAI. The result was the cov- 
erage of a story with the breadth and width which 
could never have been accomplished on a regular 
news show. This story required consistency and im- 
mediacy, the two things radio does better than 
other media. 

Within a week, a team of producers coalesced in- 
to a unit. By week two, "CONTRAGATE' had hit 
its stride. Mainstream media were calling this sta- 
tion for our sources. We were in front, breaking 
ground. Our policy is proactive journalism rather 
than reactive — which follows the agenda set by the 
. State. 

By the third week it was obvious we were on the 
right track, because when we asked for money we 
received over $5,000 in direct response. 

Now is the time to go national. We need more 
funds and more support. "CONTRAGATE " is on 
the map and so is WBAI, the only station to give 
complete coverage to the Congressional hearings. 
We are exactly where we should be for now but 
soon a wider audience should hear the voices that 
tell this story. Our co-ordinating producer, Judith 
Kallas, is building foundations that will support 
what we expect to be a national program.

THE COSTA RICM ARMS SHUFFLE 



Federal public defender for Ihe Soulh- 
cm Diitnci of Flonda, John Mallcs. 
claims thai contra aims suppliers appear 
to have had a cane blanche lo smuggle 
dnjgs and to load and unload planeloads 
of weapons at Rorida airports without in- 
terlcrence fnjm customs officials or offi- 
cials from a host of other law cnforccmeni 
agencies. Steven Can, who claims to have 
been an operative for the contra network, 
told Mattes and Ron Rosenblilh, an aide 
10 Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). thai on 
March 6, 1985. he loaded a shipment of 
arms headed for Costa Rica in broad day- 
light at the Ft. L.auderdale airpoa. 

But customs officials suggested to In 
These Times that the arms could have slip- 
ped through because the agency doesn't 
have the necessary personnel to go 
through every pnvate plane and check 
every box. "There's no possible way we 
can surveil every aircraft and every body," 
Cliff Stailings. U.S Customs public infor- 
mation otTiccr for the Southeast region, 
told In These Times- 'We would have to 
hire half die population of the U.S. in 
order to examine every item of cargo and 
every container." 

But Carr told Mattes and Rosenblilh 
that the weapons — which included monar 
tubes and MI6s — were not packed in 
boxes. In one instance, a 14-foot 20mm 
cannon had lo be loaded onto the plane 
with a forklifl. 

George Morales, who identified himself 
10 In These Times as a contra supporter and 
a network operative, is currently in Miami's 
Metropolitan Correctional Center and is 
being held without bond on charges that he 
conspired to smuggle as much as 1.500 
kilograms of cocaine into soulh Florida In 
an interview he said that he was "supplying 
aircraft and training pilots" for the contra 
network as well as flying supplies and 
mau:nel lo the conu^ in Costa Rica. 
Morales said that he had "no comment" 
when asked if he was on the alleged March 
6. 1985. contra flight lo llopango airport 
in El Salvador, but that "on some particular 
days we were loading the planes for two 
days and there were U.S. officials around 
and aware of it and never the planes were 
touched. Never." 



FomKr Dade County Deputy Shcnif 
Jesus Garcia, who also claims lo have 
been an operative in die contra supply 
network, said that on March b. 1985. he' 
helped Carr load into vans the shipment 
of loose weapons that were destined for 
the coniras' southern front in Costa Rica. 
Gan:ia. who is currently serving a diree- 
year jail term for illegal possession of a 
firearm (see story on page 10). said that 
not only did customs know alx>ul the arms 
shipments, but dKy assisted the contra 
supporters in loading the plane. 

Said Garcia. "Customs agenti came out 
to help load the arms right underneath the 
tower at Ft. Lauderdale airport." John 
Mattes. Garcia's attorney during his tnal. 
said he is highly skeptical of assertions 
by customs agents that they were too busy 
to make the necessary search. "It's not as 
if they were trying lo slip an envelope 
onto the plane m the dead of night." said 
Mattes. "You tell me that any customs 
agent within 100 yards, widun 200 yards, 
couldn't notice dial ihey were loading ar- 
tilleiy? 

"The presence at south Rorida airports 
of law enforcement is incredible." he said. 
"If you or 1 wanted lo leave Rorida on a 
flight where you wouldn't file a flight 
plan, where you didn't have your plane 
scrtitinized upon leaving and where you 
paid for the flight in cash, you or I would 
probably be hit by four or five law enfonce- 
ment agencies belorc we got off the 
ground," 

Yet Carr told Manes and Rosenblidi that 
this was exactly die situation on March 6 
when he and Rene Corbo. anodier alleged 
pro-contra operative, loaded large 
amounts of weapons on a plane bound lor 
llopango airport in El Salvador. Mattes 
said the plane was owned by Ronda Air 
Transport, a private charter service, and 
was paid for in cash. 

Said Manes. "To say that you can take 
a flight out of south Rorida. load cannons 
in broad daylight and not haie anyone 
come and ask you what you have been 
doing, or if you have the proper papers 
and clearance, leads me to the conclusion 
that someone is allowing this to go on."

a reggae interprela

As the daughter of 
Richard Whiting, the 
composer of songs like 
"Beyond the Blue 
Horizon" and 'My Ideol," 
singer Margaret Whiting 
comes by her talent 
naturally enough, but 
not even the most avid 
environment-vs.-heredlty 
theorist could hove 
predicted the brilliance 
and durability of the 
career she'd carve in 
the world of popular 
music. She's recorded 
more than 500 songs, in- 
cluding collections of 
the work of Jerome 
Kern, Johnny Mercer, 
and, of course, Richard 
Whiting. In the days 
when million selling 
records were harder to 
achieve than may be 
the case now, she had 
a full dozen, including 
"That Old Black Magic," 
"Come Rain or Come 
Shine," "Far Away 
Places," "A Tree in the 
Meadow," not to men- 
tion "Moonlight in Ver- 
mont," which became 
her theme song, and "It 
Might As Well Be Spring," 
which serves as the title 
of her autobiography, 
published this month, /i 
professional since she 
was 16, Margaret 
Whiting has enjoyed 
one of the most solid 
careers in the annals of 
American popular 
music. Now, she comes 
to "Out There On Their 
Own," to talk about her 
life and her music. Pro- 
duced and hosted by 
Joseph Hurley, the long- 
running WBAI series is 
engineered by Peter 
Jon Shuler. 



CONSIDER THE ALTER- 
NATIVES. "The Great 
Peace March." Never 
before in the US., ex- 
cept perhaps during 
the great western 
migrations, had so 
many people walked 
so great a distance on 
the strength of a single 
idea the desire for 
global nuclear disar- 
mament. The March 
had a profound af- 
fect, not only on the 
hundreds who made 
the trek, but also on 
the thousands who the 
marchers met along 
the way.
