2nd Monday host of Labor Radio
I'm an anti-imperialist, anarcho-socialist transgender sort of gal. PressWatch began on KAZI Austin in 1986, as an attempt to stoke the fires of revolution with counterpropaganda and "the news you're not supposed to know." Expect a radical analysis, and information culled from a vast array of sources, from Radio Havana to the Polish press-- or even interviews with notables like Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn, Judi Bari, Dr. Niman, and Michio Kaku--and introspection from my own life experiences.

Left the station when the culture became too hostile. Listened to volunteers repeating the "whisper campaign" of lies and slander to run off anyone who called for Staff to be accountable.
Watching as all of my dire warnings are coming true and the station's "entrenched clubhouse" brings it all down.
Thomas Hood has been involved in music and sound recording since childhood, making wire recordings with his father, a jazz guitar player with the Charlie Barnet Band.
Now a multi instrumentalist playing 6 and 12 string guitars, electric guitars, basses and keyboards, he is an independent music and radio producer. In 1985 he established Hood's Woods Music, a private music recording studio.
As a radio producer and programmer since 1968, he has extensive experience in public radio, having spent time at KPFT FM, KAOS FM, WLNV FM, KBOO FM and KMUN FM.
Specializing in remote field recording, he was a sound designer for the Janus Professional Sound Library. He has also worked with the Oregon Historical Society, providing audio restoration services for their "Portland" exhibits.
He has produced independent radio documentaries, such as “God is Dead”, focusing on controversial timber cutting practices on the public lands of Oregon.
He is co-producer and co-host of the
The Traveling Radio Show , a wacky, off-beat public radio travelogue.
