A new show on WBAI starts this Wednesday: OCCUPY WALL STREET RADIO. From the streets to airwaves, the movement that began five weeks ago as a Day Of Rage takes to the airwaves on the only station that broadcasts the voice of the 99%. The initial Occupy Wall Street Radio airs Wednesday October 26th, from 6:30 to 8 PM. Going forward, the show can be heard Monday through Friday from 6:30 to 7 PM. The show will offer a regular check in for the latest breaking news from the streets. Hear the voices, the heart, the soul of this 99% growing and now global movement.
On the show, a roundtable of hosts and producers will be your path to the action of the Occupy Movement day. Join Victoria Sobel (Finance), Luke Richardson (Media), Daniel Levine (Press), Dan Feidt (Live Video), Sade Adona (Mediation), Michael Premo (Press), Max Hodes (Sanitation) and Amy Hamburger (Kitchen) Faith Laugier (Media & Direct Action) for your daily updates.
Its birth was Wall Street, here in New York, but it has now crossed continents to Europe and Asia and is alive in 73 cities all across the United States. What will you hear? NYPD activity, arrests and releases, celebrities and personalities, the latest corporate greed target, newest additions and organizations to the movement, the “Occupy Everywhere” segment, a series of reports from national and global occupations. The radical voice of the silenced majority will be heard loud and clear, every day – welcome to OCCUPY WALL STREET RADIO on WBAI 99.5FM.
So, why WBAI? WBAI was the first and only station featuring the voices of this revolution before anyone called it that. Ignored by the mainstream, dismissed as a moment, the rest of the world tuned out. WBAI Program Director, Tony Bates and WBAI producers tuned in, turned an audience on to the beginnings of what is now a movement that cannot be ignored. Located at each end of Wall Street, the Occupy Wall Street movement and WBAI Radio bookend the block. It will only be on New York’s airwaves, on WBAI 99.5FM, that the voice of this revolution will be heard directly.
