Radio highlights for Sunday

What follows is a listing of radio programs that you can listen to over the airwaves or online. There is no fee for listening online nor a registration required. This is Pride Month and there are a few programs noting that. There are also progams offering music and plays. Dahr Jamail will be on the airwaves this evening. Quite a bit to choose from.

KPFA in Berkeley offers a look at the LGBT community and and a play. Times listed are Pacific Standard Time. Sandra Lupien will be filling in for Larry Bensky on Sunday Salon today:

Sunday Salon
Sunday, June 25th, 09:00a.m.
An LGBT Pride Day Special...
Hour 1: Elders in the Queer Community;
Hour 2: Coming out after 30

Act One Radio Drama
Sunday, June 25th, 7:30p.m.
Top Girls by Caryl Churchill.
A bold comedy from a playwright that critics have called "one of the best writers today." Obie Award Winner!

Throughout last week, Lupien asked listeners who had come out after thirty to call in. There should be a lot to cover. Also note that all month (and this will continue), KPFA has been regularly noting TLGB people as part of Pride Month. (We all agree to vary the letters from time to time because we are aware that the four groups do not always receive equal treatment or equal coverage. Dona heard an interview Deepa Fernades did last week, on WBAI's Wakeup Call, with a member of the transgendered community on the struggle going on just to make sure that the transgendered would be included in the celebration.)

Sunday on NYC's WBAI, they also celebrate Pride Month, offer Equal Time for Freethought and the music of Judy Garland. We remember that two readers wrote in the last time Everything Old Is New Again spotlighted Garland (with her historic Carneige Hall concert) so we'll put this in all caps: THE MUSIC OF JUDY GARLAND ON EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN, SUNDAY NIGHT FROM NINE TO ELEVEN P.M. EST. Note that all times given are Eastern Standard Time.

10:00 am-6:00 pm: LGBT Pride Special
Join the Out-FM collective, the Beyond the Pale collective and programmers from sister station WPFW for 4 hours of the LGBT Pride Special, then listen to programmers from KPFA give their views on pride from Berkeley in the remaining 4 hours.

6:30-7:00 pm: Equal Time for Freethought
Brian Trent on:"Keeping the Darkness at Bay, or How to Avoid Reliving the Lowest Moment in Human History." Just before the dark ages began, there was a moment, when centuries of the total accumulated evidence-based knowledge, as well as the empirical approach to knowing, had people struggling for it not to be eviscerated by the forces of superstition, faith, and authoritarianism.

9:00-11:00 pm: Everything Old is New Again
Judy on film, Judy on radio, Judy on television, Judy in duets, Judy in concert--yes, it's our 28th Annual Judy Garland Broadcast!

And, swiping from Kat, on Air America Radio's RadioNation with Laura Flanders tonight from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm EST:

The one and only Dahr Jamail. You've got to listen. (Awarded "Embedded in our hearts" in the 2004 year-in-review and only more so today. Listen!)
Need more reasons? Holly Sklar who always has something worth hearing on the economy and, guess what, talk of the economy includes much more than stock tips. Holly keeps it real.
And a name we've grown familiar with at this site, Sharon Smith -- a woman who's not afraid to ask the questions about the illegal war that need to be asked. Subterranean Fire: A History of Working Class Radicalism in the United States is her latest book. I'm adding it to my reading list and you will add it to yours if you remember some of her strong writing that's appeared in/at CounterPunch.

Need more Laura Flanders? She'll be filling in this week (from Monday, June 26th to Friday, June 30th) for Mike Malloy on his The Mike Malloy Show. which airs live on Air America Radio from ten p.m. to one a.m. EST. If she's planning on hosting new shows next weekend, that means Flanders is on for nine days straight, three hours a night.
