Audio removed from program pages

Categories:

Recently, we had a temporary problem that caused audio files to be removed from the program pages where they are normally listed.  This was related to problems with the date field.

During this time, some of the audio files did not write the air date into the database.  This means that some files will be listed with no date.  You can fix this for the audio you have uploaded by going to the "edit" function for that audio page and entering in the date.

Do Muslim Women Need Saving?

When the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan, one of the prominent justifications was liberating the people George W Bush called “women of cover” from the Taliban.  Laura Bush told us in 2002  that “the fight against terrorism is also a fight for the rights and dignity of women."  Similarly, in March 2003, shortly after the United States and its allies invaded Iraq, women's rights and gender equity  were mentioned as symbolic issues for Iraq's new national agenda.

The Ani DiFranco show is sold out!

Categories:

I was hoping to see Ani's show here at the Crystal on Friday April 18. My bad, my very bad, for not going to get tickets. I almost cried when I heard the show is sold out. I've seen Ani play live countless times over the years but not in the recent past. And not since she's a Mom. Wonder how that's affected her musak?

The next best thing I can do is dream of an ANI SPECIAL.....coming soon to a radio station near you......

If you have an extra ticket or two, contact me asap!

CLR James

Categories:

Born in Trinidad in 1901, CLR James was a leftist writer and social theorist until his death in 1989. In the 1930s, he worked for West Indian Independence, and moved to Britain, where he wrote a number of novels, and was the cricket reporter for the Manchester Guardian. In the 1940s and early 1950s, he lived in the United States, and wrote about politics, film, literature, and literary criticism.

Deported in 1953, he was much influenced by the 1957 revolution in which the former British colony of the Gold Coast became Ghana, and by the ensuing anticolonial and Black Power struggles of the 1950s and 60s.
