The Death Penalty — 

2000 Years Later^. the State Still Kills 



REPORT TO THE LISTENER 

Valerie van Isler, General Manager 
"THOSE WHO PROFESS TO FAVOR FREEDOM, 
AND YET DEPRECATE AGITATION, THESE ARE 
PEOPLE WHO WANT CROPS WITHOUT PLOWING 
UP THE GROUND." Frederick Douglass, 1857 

In any other year, entering the spring is a herald of transformation and 
new life energies. But this year, it has become a season of discontent by 
the malcontents in Congress pushing through their contract with/on 
America.The battleground is now very clear after the first 100 days of this 
Newtonian era. They have attacked everything including declaring war on 
poor people, opened the battle lines against women's rights, immigrants, 
affirmative action, civil rights and public broadcasting. With people like 
Pat Buchanan calling for "a war to take back our culture and take back our 
country" in his bid for the Republican Presidential nomination, while still 
others call for reclaiming America as a "Christian" nation, this last part of 
the twentieth century is becoming more and more of an Orwellian night- 
mare. This new congress really seems to hate the public — they want to end 
everything from public arts, to public libraries to public broadcasting. As 
ever, eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Now more than ever, at 
Pacifica we will continue to plow up the ground. 

As part of WBAI's proud tradition of thirty five years of extraordinary 
community broadcasting, we have continued to produce programs on 
these provocative issues such as the specials on the import and the impact 
of the cuts on the Corporation for Public Broadcasting budget and the 
National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities on the very soul and 
spirit of our society and this democracy. Despite these pressures and prob- 
lems, we have done our work and continued to win awards for our broad- 
casts again this year. A Golden Reel, the highest honor in community 
radio, went to Mario Murillo this spring for his production One Flag, One 
Territory on Panamanian sovereignty. He also received a New York State 
Council on the Arts grant for a special report en the indigenous people of 
Columbia. Allen Nairn, who has been a guest on our airwaves many times, 
won the prestigious George R. Polk Award for his breaking story on the 
U.S. Plan for the Haiti invasion and occupation weeks before it took place. 
Congramlations to them all as this acknowledgement of excellence is fit- 
ting during our 35th anniversary celebration. On May 8, we begin our 
Spring Membership drive which will feature specials on the State of the 
Nation [Post the first "100 Days"], The Assassination of New York City and 
State, Women's Rights and Women's Health in the 1990's, The School of the 
Americas and the CIA, The State Still Kills — Capital Punishment Revisited, 
specials on science and technology with Dr. Michio Kaku, The Personal 
Computer Show staff and much more. We have a real challenge before us 
because we have to meet a May goal of over $600,000. We know our 
growing audience will respond to the extraordinary demands of these diffi- 
cult times. Your very generous help during this campaign will strengthen 
us for the battles ahead and prepare us to bring you even greater service 
and more award-wiiming programs in the'coming months. So please tune 
in for the Spring Membership drive from May 8 - May 25, 1995. And call to 
volunteer if you can at 212-279-0707. 

Finally, very special thanks to all our members and friends who contact- 
ed their congressional representatives and expressed their views about the 
impending CPB budget cuts. That battle is still going on and has now 
reached the senate. If you haven't done so yet, we urge you to make your 
voice heard by writing your senator today.The future of community radio 
is in your hands

2000 Years Later 
The State Still Kills 

Is Pataki the new Pontius Pilate? As New York State restores the death 
penalty, and both New Jersey and Connecticut move closer to actual executions, 
WBAI will focus on the return of this state crime. On the air, on May 18, Wake Up 
Call in the morning and special programming in the evening will both focus on the 
death penalty. One of the most prominent political prisoners facing execution, 
Mumia Abu-Jamal, contributes regular commentary to WBAI's Where We Live. (This 
commentary was originally scheduled by National PubHc Radio, but never carried 
there, after protests by police groups, according to the New York Times 2/15/95.) 
WBAI is very proud to co-sponsor an extraordinary public reading of Mumia's new 
book. Live from Death Row, May 21 in the Great Hall of Cooper Union. (Turn the 
page for details) 

In the morning, we'll be taking a close-up look at the issue of capital punishment, 
recently re-introduced in New York State. Among the guests will be journalist David 
von Drehle, author of the book Among the Lowest of the Dead: The Culture of Death 
Row, and we'll be playing excerpts from African-American journalist and former 
Black Panther Party member Mumia Abu-Jamal, currently sitting on death row in Pennsylvania 

In the evening, from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, the show will be The State Still Kills: An Examination of the 
Death Penalty. Tune in to this four hour special report on the political, social and psychological aspects of the 
death penalty. We'll have an historical review of the uses of capital punishment (both in the United States and in 
other parts of the world), and bring it up-to-date, asking why it's still in use. With politicians from City Hall to Albany 
to Capitol Hill and the White House promoting the use of capital punishment as a necessary and useful deterrent to 
crime, we'll explore the accuracy of this assessment and try to explain the psychological reasoning that a person has 
to make in order to accept these conclusions. Finally, we'll go inside death row with an interview with Mumia Abu- 
Jamal. Produced by Where We Live and the WBAI Public Affairs department.

cl^angmg Course: 

A Survivd Tooffot for 
tl[?e 11^' Century 

A 13 Part Series probuceb h>() Bvel-^n Tuff^ Cost^ 
anb t(;e lour Corners Kabio Team 

Have you ever wanted to grow your own food or know 
exactly who did and where it comes from? Should your 
friends and family like to buy inexpensive, fresh organic veg- 
etables, meat, and dairy products from a co-op you set up 
and run? How about starting a group home or co-housing 
project with shared childcare, laundry, eating, and gardens? 
Would you like to work fewer hours and spend more time 
with your family and friends, while helping save the planet? 
How about fighting the recent cuts to social services by 
pulling some power and resources away from those who 
have too much (the wealthy, corporations, and government) 
and giving it back to yourself and your community? 

Changing Course: A Survival Toolkit for the 21st 
Century is a primer for economic, spiritual, cultural, and 
political survival for a thriving next century. We will explore 
what individuals, families, block associations, and communi- 
ties (urban, rural, and suburban) are doing to bring stability 
and control back into their lives. Distant politicians and 
activists thrive on issue-oriented political campaigns which 
leave many people out in the cold, numb and cynical about 
making change. The good news is that small scale efforts to 
rebuild local economies, food sources, housing, and political 
power are proving successful across the country and the 
world. How we approach problems makes the difference in 
seeing projects through. 



New Programs 



The sense of hopelessness and anger that many of us may 
feel can be directed into positive action that feeds the soul, 
our sense of worth, and the greater political struggles 
around us. Survival Toolkit for the Millermium will examine 
practical ways to apply the rhetorical ideas in our everyday 
lives. Making meaningful connections and arming people 
with resources is the goal of this series on survival and well 
being. Each show will include news from Peacenet. All pro- 
grams will stress community and family empowerment, and 
suggest practical ways to benefit from our guests' knowl- 
edge. We'll report on local groups, farmers' markets, botani- 
cal gardens, community gardens, museums, food co-ops — 
anyone who is pulling back power from larger corporate or 
governmental entities will get priority. Each show will have 
a food and organic gardening section which stresses local, 
seasonal ways for people to get together around healthy 
food they can grow. We'll discuss how to take back control 
of your diet and a bit of living destiny. At the end of the 
summer, we'll produce a resource list for hsteners who want 
to arm themselves with a toolkit for survival. To get on our 
maihng list, call the Four Comers Radio office at 718-789- 
1847.

Tl^e Vro^ressive Jeifis^ Kabio Hour 

One of the newest additions to WBAI is Beyond the Pale: The 
Progressive Jewish Radio Hour on Wednesdays from 2-3:00 
p.m.. The Pale was the only area in the Czarist Empire 
where Jews were allowed to live. "Beyond the Pale" thus 
came to signify transgression, danger, and unconventional 
behavior. The program explores, in unconventional ways, 
the experience, identity, culture, and politics of contempo- 
rary Jews. 

The show, produced by Jews for Racial and 
Economic Justice (JFREJ), took over the reins from the 
Jewish Currents show, American Jews; Heritage and 
Responsibility on March 1. JFREJ is a young and vibrant 
activist organization committed to strengthening a progres- 
sive Jewish voice in New York City. JFREJ brings together 
rabbis, educators, writers, activists, social workers — the 
entire range of the Jewish community, young and old, 
queers and straights, students and workers. We work to 
make the Jewish struggles against anti-Semitism and for 
pluralism an integral part of the larger social justice strug- 



gle. JFREJ seeks to revitalize the Jewish community, and 
through anti bias education work and coalitions with com- 
munities of color, reaffirm the Jewish community as a key 
part of the struggle for justice in New York. 

Upcoming shows will offer a progressive and trans- 
gressive Jewish spin on such topics as: Jews and the Radical 
Right, the affirmative action debate, lesbian/gay hberation, 
bi-culturalism, social Darwinism and genetic theory. We'll 
feature Jewish culture, from traditional Sephardic and 
Klezmer music to performance art and experimental jazz. 
The show is hosted by Esther Kaplan and Marilyn Neimark, 
with associate producer, Russ Burd, every Wednesday from 
two to three in the afternoon. 
(Preempted May 10th & May 17th)

Vriesland. a radio drama by Katherine Ashe, illuminates one of 
the darker chapters in American history, the massacre of the 
Lenape Indians at Hoboken in 1644. The Nanuet band of the 
Lenape, under attack by Mohawks, had sought refuge with the 
Dutch. Instead, Kieft, the Dutch governor, seized the chance to 
settle old scores and ordered his troops to slaughter the Lenape. 
About 100 men, women, and children were slain as they slept 
in a makeshift camp on the bank of the Hudson River, opposite 
Manhattan. 

Vriesland, based on the memoir of Dutch seacaptain and 
patroon David de Vries, explores the circumstances surrounding 
the massacre. Much of the action is set on or near De Vries's 
estate in what is now northeastern New Jersey, Vriesland.

The Creative Unity Collective Show 

As part of WBAI's celebration of the 70th 
anniversary of the birth of El-Hajj Malik El- 
Shabazz and our annual spring fund-raising 
drive, the Creative Unity Collective presents a 
special new production of it's award-winning 
original radio play, "brotherminister." The 
spirit of the late minister, completely unaware 
of all that has transpired in his absence, visits 
the living Louis FarrakKan in these troubled 
present times. A cast of very special guests 
will be participating in this production and 
the script will be updated to include the 
events swirling around COINTELPRO's 
attempts to bring down Qubilah Shabazz.

A monologue by Peggy Dominique, 
performed by Annabelle Leland 
Performed in the Arts Magazine Thursday May 4 
at 3:10 p.m. and in Wake Up Call 6-7:00 a.m. June 5 
In October of 1994, my sister-in-law gave birth to a baby 
boy. He was the first boy born in our family. On the second day 
of my nephew's life, we went to get mom and dad and the new 
baby from the hospital. When we got there., we discovered my 
nephew had just been circumcised. I was truly shocked. I didn't 
know little boys where still getting circumcised. My nephew was 
in extreme pain; he was weeping and he had knotted up his lit- 
tle hand in a ball and stuck that in his mouth. I knew that, on 
only the second day of his life, his organism was not eqi,iipped 
to deal with such extreme pain. As my heart began to break, I 
could only remember the words of Alice Miller, "We live in a 
culture that encourages us not to take our suffering seriously, 
but rather to make light of it, particularly the suffering and 
fate of a child. " Out of the pain of that child (my nephew) and 
my own, part of this monologue was bom. As Annabelle Leland 
says to her boss, "somethin' died in that baby on Sunday, Mr 
Arthur, I know, 'cause somethin' died in me" No Secrets is a 
glimpse into the life of Annabelle Leland and her enlightened 
witnessing of a child's reaction to circumcision. No judgments, 
just facts. And just heartbreak for those that witnessed his 
tears. Peggy Dominique

A Volunteer's Tale 

Janice K. Bryant 



Support WBAI 



Is it true that any work worth doing is worth 
being paid for? Debbie Dawson doesn't think it's 
true. Brother Shine, Vincent, Arnold, Gwen, 
Louis, Cerene, and Holly... and about 100 other 
WBAI listeners don't think so either. If they did, 
they wouldn't have been at the station 24 hours 
a day for 17 days in a row, answering a million 
phone calls during the record-breaking 35th-year 
membership drive. 

Some folks say you should never volunteer. If 
the WBAI 100 had believed that, they never 
would have had the chance to see, or hear, as 
the case may be. 

• Michael G. perform a miracle: feeding 25 
people with one orange, one apple, a small brick 
of cheese, and a pack of crackers 

• Joel spend two consecutive Saturday nights retelling the 
entire Wagnerian Ring trilogy, scene-by-scene 

• One volunteer giving 10-minute Swedish massages 

• Some perfectly delicious, but sometimes strange-looking, 
dishes conjured up by Erroll Maitland 

• Maurice expounding on UFOs, all through the night — 
breaking only to read his poetry to the Tally Room 

• Beth's singing, which is a dead ringer for early Minnie 
Ripperton — Beth can blow 

• Simon Loekle doing everything but imploding for five 
hours one Saturday morning 

• Dr. Clarke putting us all in our rightful, humble places 
when he talked about Black Studies: "You all discussed your 
favorite books, and not one African-American writer was men- 
tioned?" 

• Several fhistrated volunteers, because we could hear only 
brief parts of the great speeches and singing on Peter Bochan's 
King Day tape — the phones did jump that day 

• The droll sight of Samori Marksman giving Michio Kaku 2$ 
to make up for Kaku's having volunteered his services for so 
many years 

• A few angry listeners calling the Tally Room to complain 
about the nerve of WBAI doing a show on gasp! Cuba; the high 
price of premiums; the station being too far to the left; the sta- 
tion not being far enough to the left; the station not providing 
DISCOUNTS to those who made more than one pledge; the sta- 
tion not giving away stuff to folk who "just don't have the 
money but want a premium anyway" 

• Amy winding up and going zoom, over and over again, 
bringing in mucho dinero 

• Fred Herschkowitz winding up and going zoom over Frank 
Zappa and willing listeners to pledge 

• ever-so-cool Bob Pass calmly exceeding his goal 

• Jim Dingeman's prophetic, and surprisingly dire, producer's 
room musings about the future of the country, now that the 
right rules (he seems so conservative — could there be a liberal 
heart beating in that broad chest?) 

• Bernard White sneaking in his background bass vocals on 
gospel tunes during Dred-Scott Keyes' Sam Cooke Story special

country no longer wants or needs public radio or public televi- 
sion. If anybody believed that one, we volunteers wouldn't have 
made scores of very good new friends, Sharann and Alan 
wouldn't have experienced the sheer ecstasy of keying a moun- 
tain of pledge cards into the computer and the station wouldn't 
have taken in that $814,000 in pledges. 



The station helps us connect. It provides a forum to discuss and 
to think about our neighbors, our city, our world. Nobody is 
going to agree with everything they hear on WBAI. But they for 
damned sure will have some kind of reaction. They'll form an 
opinion, make a judgment. And if they listen to the station 
more than two or three times, they'll be hooked. That connec- 
tion will be made, and as hokey as it sounds, they'll be a part of 
the 'BAI family. 

Just like your own family, these folks are just folks.

Janice Bryant (right) 
came to WBAI as a 
volunteer in January 
to answer telephones. 
Deciding she liked 
radio, she joined our 
training classes, vol- 
unteered with several 
producers, and, as 
you can see in the 
programming grid in 
the center of Folio, is 
now part of the 
morning show.

From the Listener Surveys 

Thank all of you very much for the over 300 questionnaires returned from the last Folio. The kind words were heart- 
ening, the criticisms taken to heart. Many of us have spent hours reading them, and we're working on a more system- 
atic analysis. If you didn't participate last month, please take a few minutes and send one in. 

Some kind words 

I learn more from WBAI than I learned in all my years in school. Thank you. (West Caldwell) 

I'm a longtime supporter of WBAI, both financially and otherwise. It's probably the most important radio station in 

the United States and must stay strong! My deepest thanks for all you've done to enrich my life. WBAI is vital in the 

struggle for social progress — keep up the great work. (West Orange) 

WBAI plays an enormously important role in my life. It is both spiritually and intellectually a treat for die mind, but 

even more, it affirms that people all over are engaged in struggle to change and improve the human condition. (Long 

Island) 

I was one who found you during the Gulf War. You were the only source I could trust. (Manhattan) 

You guys are doing a wonderful job. Please feel free to call me if you need a volunteer worker. (New York) 

WBAI I love you because you make me connected to my community. You are like a neighborhood, both local and 

global. Sometime I need to find the time to stop by the station and see, not just hear, WBAI. (Manhattan) 

Please join us. See Janice Bryant's article in this Folio about volunteering during marathon, or just call (212)279-0707 

and ask for the volunteer coordinator We welcome your help, both in Marathon and throughout the year. (Dave Burstein, 

Editor) 

Some suggestions 

Create some type of reference library for your listeners. (Mt. Vernon) 

The Pacifica Program Archives— see their ad bdow— carries many of our finest tapes, along with thousands of other ^eat 
radio shows. A catalog is free— call them at 800-735-0230 
Tell us what our financial efforts have brought. Any new equipment? (NYC) 
Absolutely — a whole new master control room, with a new con- 
sole, better phone hookups, DAT recorders, over $100,000 in new 
equipment — is being installed starting in June. I and every other 
WBAI producer thank you and other contributors enormously. We 
still have to raise more money for our equipment fund — all contri- 
butions earmarked for this will be greatly appreciated. (Dave 
Burstein, Editor) 

I love WBAI, but please, more women's programming. 
(Sunnyside) 

We at WBAI, including Station Manager Valerie van Isler, seek a 
greater presence of women at WBAI. See elsewhere in this issue a 
discussion byAbby Smith and a request for involvement by Valerie 
van Isler 

[I'd like to hear more about] ecological matters (Bloomfield) 
Welcome back award-winning Evelyn Tully Costa and Four 
Corners Radio, with their new earth-centered program, Changing 
Course: A Survival Toolkit for the 21 Century 



Next issue, we'll have a more through analysis of 
the survey, and some more of your responses. Thanks 
very much for sending them in. 



If you haven't already sent in the 

questionnaire, we'd still like to hear 

from you. Please take a few minutes 

to fill out the form. Thanks.

Deint! TH l^adic in >Vest Africa 

by Annette Walker 

Give Arts Director Anthony Sloan a few days anywhere in 
the world and he's likely to end up doing what he loves 
best — live radio drama or just plain live radio. One of WBAI's 
best remembered radio plays was Tutuola's The Palm Wine 
Drinkard, a Nigerian work, adapted for the radio and directed 
by Anthony Sloan. 

So far this year he has made two brief trips to West Africa, 
visiting Senegal and Gambia. The first trip was to attend the 
conference of the World Association of Community Radio 
Broadcasters (AMARC) in Dakar, Senegal. AMARC is an inter- 
national organization serving the popular radio movement. 
Anthony has attended previous conferences in Mexico City 
and Havana. (Shelton Walden and Patricka Dallas also 
attended this year's conference.) 

While at the conference, Anthony produced a live radio 
drama. The Coming Plague, which deals with health issues in 
African societies. 

"It was collectively written by some Senegalese women and 
children from the Ecole St. Marie, an international school," 
said Sloan, who also directed the performance. Some faculty 
members from the school were impressed with the effort and 
invited him back. He returned in late March, but due to a 
conflict with school exams, the live radio drama did not mate- 
rialize. Instead, he travelled around Senegal and moved on to 
Gambia. In most instances, he interviewed people about life 
in Africa today. 

Five days in Gambia was plenty of time to guest-host a live 
call-in radio show on 102.1 FM Stereo, a privately owned 
radio station. (English is widely spoken in Gambia.) A promo 
announcement was even on the air three days before the pro- 
gram, so the audience was ready, and Sloan found the audi- 
ence very responsive. 

"We talked about contemporary African society — its 
strengths, problems, and their solutions," he commented. 
Some of the material he gathered will probably be used for 
WBAI's African Liberation special in late May.

Jazz and Ccnimcn l^ccts. 
Tec! 

by Annette Walker 

Mahmoud Ibrahim and Kim Santos present the finest in 
contemporary jazz on Sundays at 11:00 p.m.. Since they are 
alternating hosts, they don't see much of each other and lack 
the opportunity to rap or schmooze. Perhaps that is why only 
recently they discovered they had more in common than their 
love of jazz. They found out they were both descendants of a 
relatively invisible immigrant group that is just starting to 
receive attention from social scientists, journalists, and cultur- 
al institutions. 

On the maternal side, their families are African-American. 
In fact, one of Mahmoud's first cousins, Carlota Walls, has a 
permanent place in American history. She was one of "The 
Little Rock Nine," those brave teenagers who in 1957 became 
the first African-Americans to integrate Central High School 
in Arkansas. That, of course, was no easy task. They had to 
face a defiant Governor Orval Faubus who stood in the door- 
way to block their entrance. Furthermore, President 
Eisenhower had to send ten thousand paratroopers to protect 
them against the menacing mobs of white segregationists. 

On the paternal side, however, Mahmoud and Kim are 
grandchildren of immigrants from Cape Verde, a group of 




Kim Santos, on the console, enjoying the music.

islands about five hundred miles off the west coast of Africa, 
near Senegal. The people of the Cape Verde Islands constitute 
the first group of Africans to enter the United States as immi- 
grants rather than slaves. Throughout the nineteenth century 
and early in the twentieth century, many Cape Verdeans trav- 
eled the world working on whaling ships, and some, includ- 
ing Mahmoud's grandfather, left the ships and settled in the 
Northeast. For decades, whaling port New Bedford, 
Massachusetts has had the largest population of Cape 
Verdean-Americans and, therefore, has functioned as the cen- 
ter of activity. There are also significant populations in 
Southern New England towns and smaller groups in lower 
Westchester County, New York, and California. Presently, 
there are 350,000 Cape Verdeans in the United States, which 
matches the popularion in the Cape Verde Islands themselves. 

"My grandparents settled in Woonsocket, Rhode Island in 
1917," said Mahmoud. "My grandfather had worked on a 
whaler, and 'jumped ship' in New England. He stayed a while, 
then returned to Cape Verde, married and returned with my 
grandmother," he continued. His family became part of a 
New England community that still retains enough of an iden- 
dty to publish several newspapers and broadcasts about a 
dozen radio and cable TV programs. Mahmoud still has rela- 
tives who have immigrated from the Cape Verde Islands and 
speak the creole spoken there. 

Kim's grandfather also worked on a whaler and settled in 
Yonkers around 1917. However, none of his family followed 
him to the United States 
and there has been little 
communication with family 
members in Cape Verde. 
Nevertheless, Kim plans not 
only to research her roots 
in Cape Verde, but to make 
a trip there in the future. 
Furthermore, equipped 
with her grandfather's birth 
certificate and passport, she 
is participating in the 




genealogy workshops at the Schomburg Center for Research 
in Black Culture. 

As part of it's annual festival of American Folklife, the 
Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. will sponsor the 
first pubUc event about the culture and history of the Cape 
Verde Islands and the Cape Verdean-American community. 
This will take place in late June/early July. Mahmoud 
Ibrahim and Kim Santos plan to be there, and like good radio 
producers in the midst of an historic event, they will probably 
have their tape recorders with them and we'll hear all about it 
on WBAI.

Jim Dingeman (Weaponry, Tuesday night/Wednesday

book. The Battle of Brooklyn 1776, written by John J. 
Gallagher and published by Sarpedon Press. The book focuses 
on the largest and bloodiest clash of the American 
Revolution. ..If you've been waiting for the paperback of 
Michio Kaku's (Explorations, Wednesday night at 8)

from NYSCA to finish his video documentary on the indige- 
nous people of Colombia. He'll take a leave this summer for 
that work... Jennie Bourne, fondly remembered in our

An Appeal to Women of 
Inner Substance and 
Drive 

Hi! I am a singer/songwriter/ radio producer who 
has been affiliated with WBAI since 1986 (not to mention a 
dedicated listener since 1968). I have produced both public 
affairs as well as arts programming. I love this station — 
with all its beauty as well as its warts. I am a firm believer 
that with consistent, quality energy and effort, WBAI pro- 
gramming can always improve and continue aiming higher 
and higher — in both form as well as content. As in my 
music career, I am particularly interested in melding the 
worlds of art and politics in radio programming. My addi- 
tional area of concern and focus is women. I agree with the 
vast number of listeners who called in during this year's 
March 8th, 24-hour, International Women's Day program- 
ming, that Women and all the various issues that effect us 
have not been sufficiently represented on these air waves of 
late (I am talking about the last number of years). In addi- 
tion, there have been complaints that there are not enough 
women's voice on these airwaves. I am interested in being a 
part of the solution to this problem. 

It had been over five years since I had produced any 
radio show when I undertook interviewing Grace Paley for 
an hour-long show that aired March 28, 1995. Since the old 
adage: if you don't use it, you lose it, was partly in effect, I 
had to relearn a lot of the skills I had picked up in the mid- 
80's at WBAI. This last project was an incredible learning 
opportunity for me — one which I would like to share with 
any women out there who would be interested in learning 



about what goes into producing radio programs. By no 
means do I claim to be an expert — there are many other 
people here at the station with skills exceeding mine — but 
what I DO possess is great enthusiasm, love of people (if 
they are respectful and kind) and a great desire to help cre- 
ate more programming that speaks to women, using 
women's voices, women's technical abilities, etc. Why pri- 
marily women? Do I hate men? No way! Many men are my 
brothers, and not ALL women are my sisters. It's like this: 
From a technical perspective, men are socialized in this 
society to be very comfortable with technology, gadgetry 
and have little fear and apprehension in sallying forth. 
Women often tend to be more intimidated at first. This can 
be de-mystified and overcome. Content-wise, capable 
women who are bright and talented may, at times, be shy 
and reticent about putting themselves OUT THERE. This 
too can be overcome. Often, when women and men are 
learning something new in the same environment, there is 
a natural tendency for men to dominate the discussion, 
focus, attention and for women to recede into the back- 
ground and defer. That is why this special appeal to any 
women listeners/potential producers is being made. 

If you want to share your thoughts on this, please

We look forward to hearing from you.

On this year's anniversary of Haymarket and the struggle for the 
eight hour day, we will focus on the renaissance of protest activity in the United 
States and the prospects for an effective fightback against the continued 
employer attacks on the labor front. We'll look at the threat to the social wage 
and the basic social safety net, and the difficulty finding a job, especially in 
New York City. 

Monday, May 1, from 10:00 a.m.- noon and 1-6:00 p.m. 
Labor is starting to respond. From challenges to Lane Kirkland to open talk of 
a Labor party, from new alliances with the community to U.A.W. strikes against 
overtime, the movement is awakening. To further fan these sparks of discontent. 
May Day 1995 will focus on the conditions of work and workers in the United 
States and the strategy for fighting back. We'll feature grass roots organizers in 
New York, trends on the national front, and special recordings fi-om the Labor 
Notes 1995 convention. Coordinated by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg. 

Monday, May 1, from 7-11:00 p.m. 
On this May Day, we will look at the state of the labor movement in the era of Neo- 
liberalism (i.e., "Capitalismo Salvage"). How have trade agreements like NAFTA 
impacted on organized workers in Mexico, and how has it contributed to the crisis 
they're facing today? What kind of direct and indirect repression exists against 
workers in countries that are promoting liberal democratic principles? We'll have a 
number of guests joining us to discuss these and many other issues, with reports 
from various countries. Produced by Mario A. Murillo and Annette Walker

attack by Mohawks, had sought refuge with 
the Dutch. Instead, Kieft, the Dutch governor, 
seized the chance to settle old scores and 
ordered his troops to slaughter the Lenape. 
About 100 men, women, and children were 
slain as they slept in a makeshift camp on 
the bank of the Hudson River, opposite 
Manhattan. 

Vriesland, based on the memoir of 
Dutch seacaptain and patroon David de 
Vries, explores the circumstances surround- 
ing the massacre. Much of the action is set 
on or near De Vries's estate in what is now 
northeastern New Jersey, Vriesland. Part 1

Karl Marx's 
Birthday Celebration 




If the question "...Are you better off 
today than you were 4 years ago?" 
were posed today to the broad masses 
of people in the former Soviet Union 
and the "socialist world" — from 
Chechnya to "Czechoslovakia", or 
Bosnia to Georgia — the answer would 
undoubtedly be a resounding "Nol" 
But in spite of material wretchedness 
and the tattered state of their soci- 
eties, are the people of these same countries now clamoring for 
post-Lenin, Soviet style socialism? Can they "go home again?" Is 
Francis Fukiyama's "End of History" thesis now a fait accompli? 
Whither the left in the face of the most draconian anti-worker, 
anti-people social and economic policies since the 1920's? 

These are but some of the questions to be examined and debat- 
ed on the 112th anniversary of Karl Marx's birth with hosts Doug 
Henwood, Bob Fitch, Elombe Brath, Mimi Rosenberg, Ken Nash, 
and Samori Marksman, who'll be talldng with one another, as well 
as with an array of Marxist and non-Marxist political economists 
and activists. Thursday, May 4, from 7-11 p.m.

Mexico! Mexico! Mexico! 
Cinco de Mayo 1 995 Special 



The year 1994 was perhaps the most tumultuous year in 
Mexico's history since 1910. It began with an armed Indian/peas- 
ant uprising in the southern state of Chiapas which had been brew- 
ing for over a decade, and ended with the greatest economic free- 
fall Latin America has seen since the catastrophic debt crisis of 
1982. In between there were two high-profile political assassina- 
tions which exposed the corruption and infighting within the ruling 
Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), the abduction of a number 
of prominent Mexican businessmen tied to the PRI, and national 
elections which put a rubber stamp on yet another six years of the 
PRI's party-of-state domination of Mexican affairs. The tragicome- 
dy of Mexico's recent history is unfolding on a global stage that the 
country mounted with the rapid ratification of the North American 
Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1993. The contradictory cos- 
metics of open markets and democratic pluralism - necessary in 
order for Mexico to enter the exclusive company of the so-called 
"First World" - quickly flaked under the bright lights of internal 
upheaval and international scrutiny, exposing a society of profound 
social and economic divisions governed by a totalitarian state appa- 
ratus. And while the Mexican elite were hoping that the new year 
would turn the tide of their misfortune, 1995 has thus far proven 
to be worse. 

Within this context, WBAI will be presenting its annual Cinco 
de Mayo special this afternoon, with an extended edition of 
Alternativa Latina. Mixing music, literature and political analysis, 
we will spend the afternoon south of the border. 

We'll start off with background on the significance of Cinco de 
Mayo, and play some of the latest Mexican music to set the tone. 
We'll also feature some contemporary Mexican writers sharing their 
vvork with you. Then at 2:00PM we'll get into our roundtable on 
current Mexican politics, with a focus on the Zapatista uprising and 
the economic crisis. Quests will be in the studio and on the phone 
from Mexico. Later, on Talkback with Santiago Nieves, we'll 
discuss the impact the Mexican economic crisis is having on immi- 
gration to the United States, and examine how the current political 
climate is impacting Mexicans living in the U.S. We'll of course end 
with your on-air phone calls. Produced by Mario A. Murillo and 
Gonzalo Aburto.

Midnight Labbrish On Trombone.Mr. 
Don Drummond, a tribute to one of 
' Jamaica's greatest musical talents. He was 
enigmatic, he had style, and he was extreme- 
ly talented. He was a star of Jamaican music 
when the term had true meaning. As a trom- 
bonist, he was as articulate as they come or 
continue to come. Although he was a mag- 
nificent composer and artist, no Don 
Drummond recordings exist in the true sense. 
Drummond recorded many of his composi- 
tions, but never under his own banner. His 
works are found as part of the catalogue of

Skatalites recordings. In this sense he is 
like the great and revolutionary guitarist 
Charlie Christian, who was recorded but pro- 
duced no records. Though Don D., as he was 
familiarly known, made no records, his talent 
and voice burst through all barriers. 

Drummond, sadly, suffered with mental 
illness and in one of these bouts murdered 
his wife, Margarita, a talent and pioneer in 
her own right. For this, he was incarcerated 
in the Bellevue Mental Asylum until his 
death.

The National Lesbian and Qay 
Radio Town Meeting 
on the Radical Right 

After two decades of progress, the 
gay civil right movement now faces 
a Republican majority in 
Washington that's indebted to a rad- 
ically anti-gay constituency of reli- 
gious fundamentalists. House 
Speaker Newt Gingrich has pledged 
to hold Congressional hearings on 
"the homosexual influence in educa- 
tion," while initiatives throughout 
the country threaten to take away 
previous gains and ban any future 
gay civil rights protections. 
This live national broadcast will ana- 
lyze who is leading the anti-gay 
charge, what are their goals and tac- 
tics, and how successful they've 
been. We'll look at possible respons- 
es, both at the national and grass- 
roots levels. Guests will include 
Peter LaBarbera, editor of the 
Lambda Report on Homosexudlity, 
Mandy Carter of the National Black 
Gay and Lesbian Leadership, and 
Rich Tafel of the Log Cabin 
Republicans, a gay group. 
Produced and directed by Bert 
Wylen, and co-hosted by Pacifica's 
Julie Drizen.

Bridges Special: The Assassination of 
New York City and New York State 

Hammered by cuts from Newt's "contract" 
and the Albany budget, reeling from years of 
shrinking government. New York City stands 
poised to confront another budget crisis with 
health, education, and welfare at risk. With 
our economy in shambles, Giuliani is promis- 
ing painless surgery as he sacrifices govern- 
ment services and jobs. The social wage and 
the safety net are being destroyed on the 
altar of private prosperity to come. We'll 
have pie in the sky as ive die — it's a 
lie. 

So we'll talk with Bob Fitch and others 
about how the economy of this city was 
wrecked by subsidizing FIRE (Finance, 
Insurance, and Real Estate) and running 
down manufacturing and the port. We'll look 
for a new spark of fightback from the new 
community and labor coalitions strengthened 
by the State Budget battle and having 
Gingrich in our face. We'll talk solutions, 
including ending corporate welfare in New 
York City, bringing back the stock transfer 
tax, establishing a rail link to the mainland, 
and ending the mob tax. So join as Behind 
the News and Building Bridges com- 
bine for a special evening. Produced by Ken

3:00 Healthstyles: Special Women's 
Health Edition Endometriosis is a gyneco- 
logical disease. Its presence is characterized 
by endometrial tissue in parts of the body 
other than the uterus. The public, as well as 
many health care professionals, are unaware 
that endometriosis can affect any organ in a 
woman's body — such as bowel, bladder, 
lungs, or appendix. Women are being misdi- 
agnosed and mistreated because their physi- 
cians do not recognize endometriosis. Over 
half a million women in the Greater New 
York area are affected, and as many as ten 
million nationally. This special three hour edi- 
tion of Healthstyles is dedicated to the 
topic of endometriosis — time we all know 
would not be dedicated by any other radio 
station. Endometriosis is a complex disease, 
without a cure. Medical pharmacological, 
surgical, and lifestyle factors need to be fully 



The School of the 
Assassins 

Monday May 15 7:30-11:00 
p.m. Behind the News/Our 
Americas Special. 

In recent months, the national cor- 
porate media have begun reporting 
on the movement calling for the clos- 
ing of the United States Army School 
of the Americas based in Fort 
Benning, Georgia. The SOA has been 
the U.S. training ground for elite mili- 
tary officers from throughout Latin 
America for several decades. The 
Pentagon says its purpose is to "pro- 
fessionalize" regional militaries and 
foster an organic link between the 
command structure of the U.S. Armed 
Forces and their counterparts in Latin 
America. 

The SOA has an infamous list of 
graduates who have been behind 
some of the most profound human 
rights violations against their own 
populations, leading many people to 
dub it "The School of the Assassins." 
From El Salvador's Death Squad 
leader Roberto D'Aubuisson to the 
Argentine Generals involved in the 
dirty war of the 1970s and 1980s, 
from Colombian special forces units 
involved in massive rights abuses to 
former Panamanian leader General 
Manuel Antonio Noriega, from 
Guatemala to Honduras, the SOA has 
"professionalized" a who's-who in 




international lawbreakers. 

Despite calls for its closing by 
human rights groups in Latin America 
and the United States, the SOA has 
basically been able to avoid public 
scrutiny. But with recent revelations 
about CIA connections with the 
Guatemalan military and an Academy 
Award nomination for a documentary 
about the school, the New York Times 
and other major media outlets have 
been forced to take note. WBAI 
Pacifica Radio has been exposing the 
school for years. On tonight's edition 
of BTN/OUR AMERICAS, we'll update 
this work with an in-depth examina- 
tion of the SOA and how it fits in with 
current U.S. policy in the region. The 
question is, while we're forced to 
swallow cuts in our children's educa- 
tion, why must we pay for this school 
of assassins?

Mario Murillo and the Public Affairs 
Department.

7:30 Political Comedy, Part 2. Featuring 
political satire and stand-up comedy span- 
ning thirty-five years — from John Kennedy 
(The First Family) to Ollie North, Pat 
Robertson, and Jesse Helms (Randy Credico's 
60 Minutes) 

While every President has been sharply 
attacked, Richard Nixon was the most fre- 
quent target. There are great routines on 
Watergate and trickle-down and hysterical 
LPs in which the Mafia runs the White House 
and Hollywood stars are the cabinet and 
President. Other LPs feature an interviewer 
asking a "real" question to a politician — 
Nelson Rockefeller, Barry Goldwater, oth- 
ers — but the actual voice of that politician is 
edited to make him stupid. David Frye and 
Rich Little have recorded tons of quality skits 
with keen and critical ears. Political attacks 



have been done outstandingly by Lenny 
Bruce, Richard Pryor, Mort Saul, Paul 
Rodriguez, Father Guido Sarducci, and Fannie 
Flagg. Join us and laugh. Produced by Fred

Malcolm X 
Why Was He 
Killed? 
Who 

Benefitted 
Most 
From His 
Death? 
30 hours of 
extroordinory radio 
Friday May 1 9 & 
Saturday May 20 

Malcolm-Malcolm X-El Hajj Malik 
Sabaaz-Omowale. Although known 
to most simply as Malcolm X, to 
those who have followed the life 
and times of Malcolm — particularly 
through his years in the Nation of 
Islam and his subsequent work and 
travels, and on behalf of, the peo- 
ples of Africa, Asia, and else- 
where — he was no ordinary man. 
His work, and the wrath and enmity 
it attracted, were equally extraordi- 
nary. Malcolm was the target of sev- 
eral assassination attempts, includ- 
ing the bombing of his home while 
he, his wife, and his children lay asleep. His food was 
poisoned on a trip to Egypt. There were countless death 
threats directed to him and his family. In this extraordi- 
nary radio project, WBAI will thoroughly examine the 
reasons for Malcolm's assassination, and provide evi- 
dence and investigative reports identifying those behind 
Malcolm X's murder and their motives. The program will 
also locate the events before and after Malcolm's death 
in the context of the larger struggle of African- 
Americans (and other oppressed peoples) for fundamen- 
tal human rights. 

Among the guests will be Dr. Betty Shabazz and 
Attila Shabazz, the wife and eldest daughter of Malcolm 
X; historians Dr. John Hendrick Clark and Jan Carew; 
Iman W.D. Muhammad, eldest son and official successor 
of the late controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, 




Elijah Muhammad; Minister Conrad, regional represen- 
tative of Minister Louis Farakhan; Professors Bill Sales 
and Zak Kondo, authors of two investigative books on 
the life, death, and ideas of Malcolm X; and activists and 
filmmakers Kwame Ture (formerly Stokely Carmichael) 
and Spike Lee. The program will also feature major seg- 
ments on the larger COINTELPRO activities of the F.B.I. , 
which were directed at Malcolm X, the Nation of Islam, 
and many other organizations and individuals. We'll air 
several recordings of Malcolm — including several talks 
and interviews only recently discovered and never 
played on the radio.

the death penalty. We'll have an historical 
review of the uses of capital punishment not 
only in the United States but in other parts of 
the world, and bring it up to date asking why 
it's still in use. With politicians from City Mali 
to Albany to Capitol Hill and the White 
House promoting the use of capital punish- 
ment as a necessary and useful deterrent to 
crime, we'll explore the accuracy of this 
assessment and try to explain the psychologi- 
cal reasoning that a person has to make in 
order to accept these conclusions. Finally, 
we'll go inside death row with an interview 
with Mumia Abu Jamal. Produced by 
Where We Live and the WBAI Public 
Affairs department

Highlights of June 
Programming 

Friday June 2 

Midnight - 3:00 a.m. The Creative 
Unity Collective Show The more we 
learn, the more we realize how little we 
know. Therefore in the never-ending pursuit 
of intellectual elevation, we present our 
monthly list of Things We Do Not 
Understand; If everyone knows Saturday 
Night Live stinks like a rancid rat corpse, why 
is it not outta here — worse yet, why are 
these people then allowed to take millions of 
dollars and make feature films?; Why has no 
sportswriter worth a Pascual Perez baseball 
card picked up on the blatant conflict of 
interest of having Bud Selig — a team 
owner — presiding over the baseball strike as 
acting commissioner? Like, "du-u-u-uh?"; 



How so many progressives can run this same 
old "Contract On America" gag and still 
think they're being clever? Is it any wonder 
we took a bath in '94?; How does Alfonse 
D'Amato manage to consistently out-asinine 
himself everytime he steps up to the mic?; 
How is it so many people who tripped over 
themselves to vote in George Pataki are now 
acting like they just found out he's really 
Joseph Mengele in disguise? Stereo, 3 hrs

Gay & Lesbian & (your host hopes) Bisexual 
Pride Month. Your host's 1 99.4 Spring Offen- 
sive is definitely under way now and he 
should be finding a significant other some- 



time before the snow starts to fall, or at least 
before it starts to get really heavy. In a reli- 
gious segment Pope Weaselpenis XVI pre- 
sents the case for canonization of Arbogast 
the Crummy, who is alleged to have per- 
formed a number of miracles including the 
levitation of one church's petty cash 
accounts. Cardinal Toxic opposes sainthood 
for Arbogast because of his opposition to the 
dogma of virgin birth on the basis of his hav- 
ing gotten it on with the Blessed Virgin when 
she appeared to him. "If she'll do it with me, 
she'll do it with anybody," he claimed. Free

June is Gay Pride Month 

Listen for special programming 



One of the proudest moments in WBAI history came in 1963, when Baird Searles 
hosted the radio show, The New Symposium, possibly the first openly gay radio show 
anywhere. While We haven't set the June schedule, tune in for our live coverage of some 
of the events on the right and other special programming. (Dave Burstein, Folio Editor)

WBAI's The Gay Show is the

covered a far and wide arena

drag, drug addiction, leather, 
and lace fantasy, to serious 
plays and in-depth psychother-
