Sunday Salon

Sunday Salon – August 7, 2005

This week’s Sunday Salon has two exciting hours lined up with the welcomed participation of listener calls.

In our first hour, Larry Bensky focuses the discussion on Hiroshima, with renowned historian Howard Zinn, Stephen Walker, author of Shockwave: Countdown to Hiroshima, Chalmers Johnson, president of the Japan Policy Research Institute, and Fuskao DeAngelis, who was 8 years old when the atomic bombs were dropped on her native Japan; she has devoted her life to fighting nuclear proliferation and is a global peace activist.

Then in our second hour, we speak briefly with film maker Garret Scott and hear about his new film Occupation Dreamland opening this week in the U.S…he documents U.S. soldiers and the surreal and terrible reality of their daily life in Iraq…

next, we take you live to Northampton, Massachusetts and join a Pacifica national broadcast from the 10th annual Grass Roots Radio conference. We’ll hear about a brand new radio station built by the conference goers, how community radio is rapidly growing across the nation and how to get your own radio station in your own community. We’ll speak with GRC folks Norm Stockwell from WORT in Madison, Wisconsin, Ursula Reudenberg, director of Pacifica affiliates, Otis Maclay, Pacifica’s Technical Director, folks from the Prometheus Project and more.
