Everything Is Broken playlist for 04/01/2014

Our program tuesday; 1:00PM EDT will explore the USA media, from the macro discussion of narrow consolidation of corporate control to micro grassroots efforts to educate and alert fellow citizens here on Long Island. Activists here and in communities nationwide are raising the alarm on this brushfire of promotion of consumer products and ideology masquerading as “news.” Information that citizens need is not only manipulated, but often deliberately blacked out.
Our featured activist guests are Janine Melillo and Nat Board of the Long Island Media Task Force. Janine has a long history of activism and is a professional video editor and producer. Her credits are long but include work at PBS, CNN, ABC, HBO and others. She is also an artist and native Canadian. Nat Board, a native Midwesterner is a graduate of our very own Stony Brook University. He taught high school English here on the island for 36 years!
For our music … we will barrel down old dirt roads with reckless abandon in our way back machine; we will blare OLDIES, top down and eyes watering, bug splatts inaudible of course; the dust will choke us but the music makes it all good. buckle-up and hunker down, the oldies are in town.
