The Pacifica/WBAI crisis then and now
Here is the entire program that Gary Null did live on his online network this evening. It is an hour in length and even deeper in content. The order of guests is: Summer Reese, Utrice Leid, Tracy Rosenberg, the three ladies paint an interesting picture of the station's and Pacifica's internal affairs. Gary Null's strokes are also bold and revealing. That Foundation and Station still exist is simply amazing.
When I hear Null speak of the vandalized morning program, I have to wonder how he can be so chummy with Haskins, but I guess it's all in the game.
That said, Mr. Null is owed our gratitude for bringing to the forefront details of this tale from the crypt.
Mr. Null's Progressive Radio Network can be streamed live from prn.fm, which also has an archive.
