Our weekly radio show on Pacifica KPFK 90.7 FM (Tuesdays at 4PM) with lead hosts Eric Mann and Tammy Bang Luu, features interviews with frontline organizers from across the globe. We’re picking up a large working class Los Angeles audience, and increasingly, a national audience for our live, streaming webcast (http://www.kpfk.org/listen-live.html). We challenge Rush Limbaugh talk radio and offer a punchier, tougher, multi-racial alternative to Air America. It is a show that focuses on strategy and tactics, social movements, radical and revolutionary thinkers, strategists, organizers, and mass leaders--asking the question "What is to be Done?"
