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.

Pete Seeger In Conversation & Song - 56:19  

PRESENTE: In Conversation & Song with Pete Seeger  

No, death cannot silence our beloved Pete Seeger.  His rhythms and tunes will find their way beyond time and across borders to wherever people toil and yearn to build a way for humankind against greed and hate.  His songs will forever inspire a chorus and when sung by enough people  the choir can tear down walls, overthrow tyrants and, break the chains of serfdom. Not overnight in a crescendo, but little by little.  Pete Seeger knew a song could not stop a bullet, could not stop a truncheon, but he believed that from little things, big things grow. He was a messenger of a power invisible and indivisible. As he once wrote: ''Songs won't save the planet, but then neither will books or speeches. Songs are sneaky things. They can slip across borders. Proliferate in prisons.Penetrate hard shells.''  Pete Seeger never tired and indeed was inspired and energized to make the world a better place through his music and activism. His lifelong commitment to the cause of peace and to addressing the plight of the downtrodden has been an inspiration to all those who have championed society's victims and have done what they could to combat injustice.
