Acclaimed folksinger Dar Williams has joined a line-up of artists performing at a "Musical Garden Party" honoring former Pacifica Radio hosts Roz and Howard Larman and their 30 years of "FolkScene" and former Democracy Now! co-host Juan Gonzalez in support of the Free Pacifica Lawsuits and the Pacifica Campaign.

Dar is not new to the Free Pacifica Radio movement, she performed at several benefits in the Bay Area. "That New York station, WBAI, totally radicalized my adolescence," she told the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this year. "I could tune in and find things no one else was playing. The Berkeley station (KPFA) serves the same function."

Thousands of Pacifica Radio listener-sponsors from across the nation have organized to reclaim the Pacifica Foundation from a corporate clique that critics say have hijacked the progressive radio network founded over 50 years ago. In the past five years, close to 150 volunteers and staff have been purged, fired or driven out of Pacifica stations in a bid to "dumb down" and depoliticize programming. Join us this Sunday to help defend this great treasure from corporate hijackers and Beltway politicians.
