Radio highlights for Sunday

Program highlights for Sunday. Online (and over the radio broadcast airwaves) you can hear about John Lennon or the playwright Arthur Miller. Maybe you'd like to hear Greg Palast talk about the things that the corporate media won't cover? All of that and more can be heard, free of charge, if you're able to listen on your computer or in a broadcast area.


Radio Chronicles
Sunday, May 21st, 6:30p.m.
A special profile of 20th century musical icon John Lennon.

Act One Radio Drama
Sunday, May 21st, 7:30p.m.
A showcase of Arthur Miller and his plays, including:All My Sons, The Crucible, and A View From The Bridge.

On Air America Radio, RadioNation with Laura Flanders (7:00 pm to 10:00 pm Eastern):

What does it mean to be a friend of America and citizen these days? Do good fences make good neighbors? Our Media Roundtable includes Nation contributor BRUCE SHAPIRO and blogger CHRISTY HARDIN SMITH of Firedoglake. And GREG PALAST on why Bush loves $3 a gallon gas, war-mongering with oil-producing nations and other sordid tales from his new book, "Armed Madhouse: Who's Afraid of Osama Wolf? China Floats, Bush Sinks, The Scheme to Steal '08, No Child's Behind Left, and other Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Class War."

Plus Sara Jean Rohne who gave the pre-rebuttal to John McCain Friday at the New School.

Now, final note, if you have HBO, Katrina vanden Heuvel's "Iraq Uncensored" (The Nation) notes a documentary airing tonight (and repeating through the week, it's HBO):

The Bush administration has censored photographs of the wounded, body bags, and flag-draped coffins. Imagine its fears over large numbers of Americans viewing Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill's new documentary, Baghdad ER.
Airing Sunday, May 21, at 8:00 PM on HBO, Baghdad ER examines the 86th Combat Support Hospital which the filmmakers chronicled for two months. One nurse, Specialist Saidet Lanier, describes life at the field hospital this way: "This is hard-core, raw, uncut trauma. Day after day, every day."

If you don't have HBO, you can go to Democracy Now!'s "Baghdad ER: Documentary On US Military Hospital in Iraq Gets Cold Reception From Army" and listen, watch or read (transcripts) about the documentary (clips are included -- at least if you listen or watch).
