I want to thank everyone who offered me support—and who wrote to the management of WBAI and Pacifica—during my radio travails of the last couple of weeks. It was really touching. And it persuaded me to keep going, even if I had to separate myself from the rot and madness of WBAI.
Given the upheaval at KPFA, I can’t be sure how long things will go on there. But I’m exploring various options with some sympathetic and excellent colleagues.
Listen to you on the NET every week I can find your show. Simply your the best Left Political Economic critic going.They must be stark staring bonkers to even think about cutting your show.
Listening from the old Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire in darkest Northern England
Our local progressive community radio station, KRFP, Radio Free Moscow, has been carrying your program for the past couple of years and it has been one of our must listen tos. Needless to say we are upset to no longer have access to it and hope you find a way to get back on the air. Richard & Barbara Wells
Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get it. And thanks!
doug, you sound like kris kringle in ‘miracle on 34th’: “don’t worry, tommy, you’ll get it!” but he wants only a football helmet, not a radio show.
a seasonably timely comment.
I was deeply distressed to hear you were leaving as I am about a number of the schedule changes and the state of the station generally. The quality of your program is unparalleled. I hope this means you will stick through this rough period. This too must pass.
I discovered LBO and you a few months ago as a result of a mention by Jon Schwarz on his blog tinyrevolution.com.
I’m now a subscriber to the newsletter, I’ve read both your books, and I plunder the online radio archives. I consider your weekly show to be the very best source for commentary on the passing economic and political scene.
I also consider you to be an example of how to make an intellectual impact on the world without signing over one’s life and happiness to our corporatized university system. I’d be happy if I could carve out a space similar to what you’ve made for yourself (I’m 25).
I hope you finish the book you’ve been working on. I also hope you keep producing your radio show. It’s really one of the only things I have to look forward to on a week-to-week basis.
