This week on From the Vault, we revisit the Summer of 2003, when the Pacifica Radio Archives was in full production mode gathering classic audio from our extensive collection in preparation for our very first National Broadcast and fundraiser, which would air later that year. One of the original productions was a special sound collaboration called Say It Loud: New Songs for Peace. Original music and hip hop beats were written for specially selected voices of Peace, Justice, Equality and Freedom from the vast programs in the Pacifica Radio Archives:
“We did Not Authorize” featuring Dennis Kucinich
“I want all of My Daughters to be Like Maxine Waters” featuring Maxine Waters
“Bin Bush” featuring Michael Moore
“Silence of the Media Lambs” featuring Greg Palast
“The Problems Have A History” featuring Tariq Ali
“The Gift” featuring Thich Nhat Hanh
“Afrodiva” featuring Angela Davis
“Father Knows Best” featuring Gore Vidal
Say It Loud: New Songs For Peace was a collaboration between the Pacifica Radio Archives and The Polemic Consortium, consisting of two Los Angeles based musicians Gomez and Frank Aragon, and Pacifica Radio Archive Senior Producer Mark Torres.
