FTV 164 The Final Frontier

Posted in Uncategorized, Update on June 25th, 2009

As the Pacifica Radio Archives presents its 1968 Revolution Rewind series, we have listened to critical events from 40 years ago and the voices of the key figures during that time. This week we listen to two visionary thinkers, both writers of the future who have guided humanity by daring us to exercise our imagination – Ray Bradbury and Gene Roddenberry – as they address the 1968 World Science Fiction Convention held at the Hotel Claremont in Berkeley California.

FTV 163 Pacifica’s Juneteenth Special 2002

Posted in Update on June 19th, 2009

Juneteenth (June 19th) commemorates a significant day in African American history. Juneteenth, also known as African American Emancipation Day, is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. In 2002 the five Pacifica stations preempted regular programming to simulcast a 15-hour special Juneteenth broadcast. In this episode of From the Vault, we feature highlights from that historic day of radio.
