David Barsamian’s May 19 visit to KXCR, and his rousing speech to a full house, was a fitting conclusion to a long delayed tour benefitting community radio in Oregon. David’s acclaimed Alternative Radio, the independent weekly audio series based in Boulder, Colorado has altered the media landscape by presenting the likes of Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali, Howard Zinn, Edward Said, Arundhati Roy and AR’s vast archive of speakers free of charge to all interested stations.
KXCR is grateful to count David as a friend. We’re delighted to be able to share the fruit of his life’s work with our listeners, illuminating our understanding of the issues facing our country and the world. Alternative Radio airs locally Fridays at 5:00 PM on KXCR 90.7 FM.
