Radio Thrift Shop: Broadcast 509, Segment 1

1 month 1 week ago
Radio Thrift Shop is DJ Frederick's two decade long (and counting) experiment, having evolved from Seldom Heard Radio. Radio Thrift Shop has a flexible format & an homage to the "underground" era of broadcasts of the 1960's and 1970's that DJ Frederick grew up listening to & features a homegrown mix of vinyl records, 78s, 45's, LPs, private press releases, and a variety of cassette tapes and homemade / self released cassettes & cds. Each broadcast of Radio Thrift Shop features an improvised or thematic playlist from DJ Frederick's music library. It's never the same program twice - or even once

A classic audio collage by Virtual Renderings. An intriguing and sometimes rocking blend of satire, music, and also analysis by several voices (among them Richard Wolff's). It explores the economic problems of our time--falling wages, consumer debt, overwork, unemployment, decline of manufacturing, corrupt politicians, crooked banks and bankers, soaring corporate profits, and stratospheric executive salaries ... among others.

Taylor Report: Western Powers are Behind the War on Yemen, Segment 1

1 month 1 week ago
Phil interviews Zafar Bangash about the Saudi-U.S. war in Yemen and the latest move by outgoing U.S. Secretary-of-State Pompeo to designate the Ansrallah Movement, which represents the majority Houthi resistance movement, as a terrorist organization. The billions of dollars worth of arms sold to Saudi Arabia by Western countries, such as Canada, have failed to subdue the Yemeni people. Notably, Twitter has censored the accounts of the Ansarallah, but failed to silence the movement. Bangash is cautious about the possibility of Biden changing anything, partly because the U.S.A. gave the green light to Saudi Arabia to launch the war in 2014 while Biden was the VP. While Biden has previewed his intentions to rejoin the JCPOA, the Iranian government, which has no intention to develop a nuclear weapon, isn't likely to negotiate with any country its defense capability. Iranian presidential elections are due in June 2021 and the U.S.A. is likely to meddle in them.
