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.

Building Bridges: SOS! Save Our Station! WBAI  

Building Bridges says, SOS, Save Our Station! 
Don’t allow WBAI radio to go silent!

and pledge in the name of Building Bridges

Building Bridges broadcasters Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash give voice to the working class in this intensified period of attacks on it over WBAI radio. Our priorities draw inspiration from Dr. King's "Beyond Vietnam" speech at
NYC's Riverside Church, to build a movement for fundamental change of the U.S. economic system, to end discrimination, poverty, and militarism.

WBAI, which steadfastly refuses to be politically manipulated by financing itself through corporate advertising or commercial underwriting is facing its most severe
financial crisis in its 53 year history.  While we have a number of debts to satisfy and upcoming expenses, our most urgent  need is to maintain our broadcast signal.  We owe the Empire State Building, where our antenna is located, enabling us to transmit over a 150 mile radius, $250,000 payable by the end of March.  It’s due or die time.

There isn’t a progressive cause that WBAI hasn’t provided broadcast time for, and helped to build support for, at home or around the world.  And, now we need you to support your broadcast voice as we never have before, to assure that we
don’t lose this institution that has worked for all your causes, like no other media has done for as long and consistently as WBAI.  It’s your station, to advocate for you, to champion your causes and build our movements.

We will not go quite into that good night – certainly not with your financial help. Help
us pay our most immediate and necessary debt to Save Our Station, to Save Our Antenna.
Whose Station?  Our Station!  Make it so, contribute generously now.

Please post this urgent message to your contacts, listserves, webpage, Facebook,
and other social media.

In Solidarity
Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
