Pacifica Radio Opens Archives Nov. 27
Before NPR, before PBS, Pacifica Radio was out capturing the most monumental events of our nation’s recent history.
The Pacifica Radio archives contain some of the most important and valuable recordings in public media. For one day this year, November 27th Pacifica will broadcast 19 hours of moments that changed the world-covering music, politics and social movements.
This programming will be broadcast on all 5 Pacifica Stations (SF, NYC, LA, DC and Houston) and will be streaming on Pacifica’s website.
These will include a reading of the Watergate transcripts by the likes of Mama Cass Elliot and guest appearances by Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt and Graham Nash.
The schedule isn't up yet on their site, but will be at www.pacifica.org
