Pacifica Radio Highlights for Sunday

Swiping from Ruth, here are upcoming radio programs for today. Hopefully, you'll see something that grabs you. Remember that if you see something after it's broadcast, you can go to the archives. (Except in the case of music. The program playing a landmark recording will probably not be archived.)

Two programs worth noting on KPFA Sunday (today, and times given are Pacific):

Sunday Salon With Larry Bensky
9:00 am
In our first hour...
The French youth labor law controversy... Millions protested and made a difference. How big a difference?
In our second hour... What's the media been up to since September 11, 2001. We'll speak with author Kristina Borjesson, who interviewed some of the nation's top journalists for her book "Feet to the Fire: The Media After 9/11" (Prometheus Books), and others...

7:30 pm
Act One Radio Drama
Act One Presents a witty and compassionate look at the effects of the Hollywood Blacklist on personal relationships, "The Value of Names" by Jeffrey Sweet, starring Hector Elizondo, Garry Marshall and Sally Murphy. Thirty years ago, Benny Silverman's acting career was nearly destroyed when his friend and colleague, Leo Greshen, "named" him in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. The two men haven't spoken since. Now Benny's a successful comedian with a posh home in Malibu. Leo, now a sought-after director, hasn't done badly either. In fact, Leo is in town to direct a hot new play -- and Benny's beloved daughter is in town to star in it. Sit back and relax, you've got the best seat in the house.

Three programs on WBAI Sunday (times are Eastern):

11:00 am-noon: The Next Hour
A presentation of rarities from legendary radio satirists Firesign Theatre.

6:30-7:00 pm: Equal Time for Freethought
Michael Neumann on his book, The Case against Israel

9:00-11:00 pm: Everything Old is New Again
In recognition of the 45th anniversary, we present the entire Capitol Recording of Judy at Carnegie Hall.
