Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

The music of acclaimed Cuban composer and saxophonist Yosvany
Terry provides an unmistakable milestone in the often illusive unfolding
of modern Jazz - Black classical music. He creates a synthesis that
links past and present influences of Afro-Cuban and Caribbean Jazz
with Cuban popular music. Terry brings the Arara’ culture of West
African and Cuba to life, incorporating American Jazz traditions with
his own Afro-Cuban roots to produce compositions and solo work that
flow from the rhythmic and hard driving avant-garde to sweet sounding
