PNB Special Committee 6-25-2015 (exerpts)

Here is an audio from the June 25, 2015 telephonic Special PNB Committee meeting to discuss a proposal to implement fund raising via underwriting. The proposal was submitted last year and scheduled for discussion at the recent live PNB meeting, but time apparently ran out. This audio, edited to include "a few of the more salient points," comes to us from a trusted visitor—we thank him for his insightful comments.

Here, tweaked for clarity, is a brief revealing soundbite—a study in frustration, it abruptly put the lid back on this important subject. "John" is Pacifica's newly appointed IED, John Proffitt.

  1. According to the calendar at kpftx.org there’s a meeting of the PNB Affiliates Task Force scheduled for this Monday, 29 June at 8:30 et. Given the slap in the face the PNB just gave John Proffitt, Ursula Ruedenburg, and the Affiliates, it might be interesting – or not, who knows?

    There’s also a PNB meeting scheduled for Thursday, 2 July, also at 8:30 et. The subject is given as ‘Discussion of strategic options.’ I believe that translates as ‘Dreams we might have had’ or something to that effect.

    1. Disneyland has nothing on Dunceland.

      Thanks for the alert. I'll lend an ear.

  2. Proffitt seems to have a certain pragmatic mind and work ethic, but that won't motivate people at the PNB, recalcitrants who are there for politiical credibility through sloth. They should take a lesson from the Japanese Red Army nitwits who went to to train then killed nearly half their own members in those self-criticism trials for being not revolutionary enough and bourgeois.

    I haven't listened for more than 10 minutes total since Wednesday to WBAI. Why would I stay on a station that is like a perpetual drumroll?I I just tune by, see what slavery, Confederate flag, begging for money repetition is on and tune away in a few seconds.

    Looked at the program schedule and see Forlano is listed as one day per week only now. So much for her riding in as a savior.

    Anyway, my best friend for the past 30 years or so had a massive stroke this past week. Luckily his wife was there and knew what to do. They said he will make a 100% recovery. I don't know how to put it, but that just made bullshit like WBAI seem even less important than ever as I see real mortality around me.

    1. This may well be the most racist daytime program on the station. Ron Daniels is either a fool of major proportions or a scam artist... well, actually, both. His Monday morning program is, basically, a two-hour infomercial for himself and his various commercial ventures. He is smart enough to know that WBAI's minuscule listenership is at an all-time intellectual and awareness low, so he panders to their ignorance.

      The program is done live, but not from WBAI skylight closet. The technical quality is beyond abysmal, with other signals bursting in, dead air, and, yes, an echo throughout. This is not entirely due to the inept "engineering" by Haskins, but—in an odd way—it complements Ron Daniels' absurd blather.

    2. although Mimi , Prescod, Howard Jordan, Gary Byrd , among other's give him a run for the money.
      I do want to mention one show that is pretty good , and that is the Harry Allen show . It is on Fridays
      @ 2pm . He's very professional and runs a pretty good show . So kudos to him.

    3. I agree. A professionally conducted show with good guests and a well-prepared host... No cheap ghetto racism aimed at dummies. The racist content and stupidity is rising at WBAI, so who knows how long it will be before Allen is moved to cyber is or replaced by "Dr." Rastanole.Bumbadadada.

      These WBAI idiots would be doing black people a real disservice if there was anyone out there listening to their nonsense.

    4. Daniels should go buy himself a Pastorship and get into the real money, religion. He already has the arrogance and glib speech.

      I discovered Radio Channel 292, indie lease time shortwave station based in Germany, sells one hour for 15 Euros. They have a signal that blasts all over Western and Central Europe. It may be time to get my studio together.

    5. Go to R&R Enterprises. It is owned and operated by the Reimers-Ryan team, experts in radio studio design.

      As I listen to his gibberish, I wonder if Ron Daniels obtained his academic certification via a matchbook cover application. He's a slick hustler who preys on the ignorant, so 99.5 is the perfect crime scene for him. I also think he is an inspiration to the fat lady who so patiently stands in the wings, music in hand.

  6. I guess that's what people like me or alot of other people on this board tune in for . Hoping that you will hear something intelligent , because there is ,albeit few and far between some really good shows . Dare i say that even John Kane had a
    somewhat decent show on the other day . It was a good subject and good guests so i guess that had alot to do with it .
    But you never know .
    As the old saying goes I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out . You could kinda say about bai . I tuned in expecting to hear racist self serving repetition crap, and a intelligent discussion broke out. Very Rare , but sometimes happens .

    1. Funny but true. Intelligence appears to be stopped at the door.

      I'll check out Kane's program. If he allowed his guest to speak, I can believe the show might be tolerable, but his mindset and attempt at delivery grates on me.
