COINTELPRO, George Jackson and other stories

Oh... I just heard myself say I'd post more links about George Jackson, the Black Panther Party and heaven knows what else....
This particular programme was first broadcast in August 2011 - I put it up now because I didn't want to leave it too long before playing part Two of COINTELPRO 101.

I also think it's about time to play the programme that was made for the birthday of Angela Davis.... let's do that next week.

Here are some links:

Black Panther Party



George Jackson
Soledad Brother

Of course there's also lots more material to be found on YouTube if you look.

In memory of... Gil Scott Heron, Curtis Mayfield, Allen Ginsberg

Today's show includes some exclusive interviews made with Gil Scott-Heron, Curtis Mayfield and Allen Ginsberg by Maurice Di of A Love Supreme Broadcasts, Amsterdam.
Di made radio with a number of stations in Amsterdam between 1985 and 1997.

Gil Scott-Heron died on May 27, 2011; Curtis Mayfield and Allen Ginsberg were born on June 3, Curtis in 1942 and Ginsberg in 1926 - plenty of reasons to hear from all of them in a couple of hours.

In the next couple of shows you'll finally hear COINTELPRO 101 part 2 and the programmes we made earlier this year for the birthdays of Angela Davis and Huey P Newton.

You can't say we don't bring you some great treats.
