Here in Kansas also known recently as "Brownbackistan" we still consider humor as our best weapon, but it comes qualified and at a price. We have raised less than $50 of the yearly network dues of more than $700 needed and that doesn't pay for the telephones - another $300 per year.
We have till the end of January, 2013, to raise these donations. Then we will be liquidated, locked-out and silent. To keep us going mail any amount by check or money order to: People's Culture, P.O. Box 5224, Kansas City, KS 66119 and note "RFK" in the memo line.
Today on RFK ...
A call-in live show with featured guests and musical selections.
Program Schedule, Saturday, 05 Jan. 2012:
Mike Hummell, Lawrence, Ks., a former union worker with the now closed Hostess baking company will be my guest to discuss how the company was pillaged over the years resulting in the loss of over 18,500 American jobs. He has been interviewed in Truthout, appeared on CNN Money and recently written about the experience.
A recent article by Eric Blair, "Hostess Workers Take On Private Equity Pirates" published in Labor Notes might be instructive for all.
During the second hour I will welcome comedian, activist and writer Lee Camp who will be in Kansas City at the Kick Comedy Theater, 4010 Pennsylvania St., Friday, 11 Jan. 7pm.
