    Program Summary: 26 Dec. 2015


    1st -  Produced by Tom Roe at Wave Farm/WGXC in upstate New York.  Headlines from the week, and a listen to some of the year's songs about radio waves. The headlines: AM radio going FM in 2016; Copyright Royalty Board sets internet radio rates; Hillary Clinton wants a 'Manhattan Project' to fight encryption; Congress changes CISA, spares net neutrality; Enlisted personnel in the Air Force can now fly drones. Elvis Perkins and "AM," Holly Herndon and "Interference," Circuit Des Yeux and "Dream of TV," and Wire and "Blogging" are also included.


    To mark The Nation’s 150th anniversary, John Nichols was joined in conversation by the eminent radical intellectual Noam Chomsky at the Tucson Festival of Books in Arizona on March 15.  Discussing issues ranging from media accountability and voter participation, to money in politics and income inequality, Chomsky offered insight into the greatest challenges of our time.


    “The race towards disaster is being carried out with almost euphoric intensity,” said Chomsky. Chomsky maintains that meaningful change requires a democratic awakening. “Democracy is a threat to any power system,” he said.

    NUCLEAR EXTINCTION and WEALTH

    in Politics

    Maria Gilardin produces TUC Radio from her off-the-grid home in Northern California.


    See: (http://tucradio.org/index.html)


    Today a classic series on THE DYNAMICS OF POSSIBLE NUCLEAR EXTINCTION:


    The anti nuclear campaigner and physician Dr. Helen Caldicott organized a two day symposium in February 2015 with an international panel of leading experts in disarmament, political science, existential risk, anthropology, medicine, nuclear weapons and artificial intelligence. They addressed the risk of accidental nuclear war, recently proven facts about a global nuclear winter that can be caused by the unleashing of just a few nuclear weapons, the expanding militarization of space, the power and pathology of the US military industrial complex, privatization of the US nuclear weapons labs, nuclear war crimes in the Marshall Islands, as well as two of the vibrant movements to abolish nuclear weapons, a divestment effort under the title Don't Bank On The Bomb as well as ICAN, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.


    2nd hour: Dr. Michael Parenti, the progressive political scientist's unscripted reflections on capitalism, socialism, the role of universities, Cuban plumbers, Russian prostitutes, and his former running mate--and once close friend--Bernie Sanders. Plus commentary on capitalism, socialism, public utilities, popular rebellion, plutocrats in general, the Waltons in particular, Occupy Wall Street, and the monetary system.


    Also a brief recorded essay by Parenti from 2005--"Welfare for the Wealthy"--and relevant songs by Monty Python's Flying Circus and David Rovics. More details, photos, nice links, & other good stuff on the show's Web site: http://newworldnotes.blogspot.com
