Radical Radio

During the afternoon while I'm working, I like to listen to a variety of Internet radio stations. Radical Radio is one of my favorites. It features a multitude of lectures from progressive voice of all kinds: Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy, Howard Zinn, Greg Palast, and so many more. The serious stuff is dotted with comedy skits from Monty Python, Onion Radio News, George Carlin, Lenny Bruce, and others. It makes for a zany, fascinating afternoon. Check it out if you have the chance. You need Winamp Media Player to tune in.

From the Radical Radio site —

Radical Radio is a non-commercial news, analysis and commentary-based alternative news radio that is comprised of an 18 - 25 hour program that is updated continually and features current alternative news from sources like Democracy Now, Free Speech Radio News, the Shortwave Report and international Indy Media reports and mixes them with political speech from groups or personalities such as Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis and many, many others. This is peppered with music and poetry. We aim to offer the best in alternative news radio available on the web. We hope you like the taste more than the bland pablum of commercial radio, or the middle of the conservative perspective that NPR dishes out.. Stay tuned, stay informed and stir it up!
