KBOO Archive recordings: 40 years of radio-activism
In celebration of KBOO's 40th anniversary, we bring you recordings from the KBOO archives - dating back to 1968. Each weeknight at 6:00 - 7:00 pm from June 16th - 20th, we'll play some of these historic, rarely heard recordings.
Host Barbara Bernstein speaks with activist and author Tom Hayden. Hayden was a founding member of the Students for a Democratic Society in 1961, and author of its visionary call, the Port Huron Statement, described by Howard Zinn as "one of those historic documents which represents an era."
After helping lead street demonstrations against the war at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention, where he was beaten, gassed and arrested twice, Hayden was indicted in 1969 with seven others on conspiracy and incitement charges.
After five years of trials, appeals, and retrials, he was acquitted of all charges.
Linda Olson Osterlund speaks with Susan F. Hirsch about her book "In the Moment of Greatest Calamity: Terrorism, Grief, and a Victim's Quest for Justice."
Hirsch is an American cultural anthropologist who lost her husband in the 1998 Tanzanian Embassy bombing. One of the accused Embassy bombers is a "high-valued" detainee in Guantanamo and is scheduled for Tribunal. She plans to return to Africa for the tenth anniversary of the bombing this summer. In this interview she'll discuss why vengeance and unilateral military action are not solutions to terrorism.
Remembering Stonewall, a radio documentary by David Isay. KBOO presents our annual broadcast of this documentary that was first broadcast in 1989, on the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. It is the first documentary - in any medium- to tell the story of the 1969 riots that started with a police raid of a gay bar and ended with a revolution and the transformation of a hidden subculture into a vibrant political movement.
