David Barsamian is the founder and director of Alternative Radio (http://www.alternativeradio.org/), the award- winning Boulder-based weekly independent program. AR presents information and perspectives that are ignored or distorted in the corporate-controlled media. The one-hour program is broadcast on more than 125 public radio stations around the world. Barsamian is also National Producer of "Making Contact," another weekly radio program. His interviews and articles appear in The Progressive, The Nation, Z and other journals and magazines. He is author of numerous books with Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Eqbal Ahmad and Edward Said. His series of books with Chomsky, America's leading dissident, have sold in the hundreds of thousands and have been translated into many languages. His latest book with Chomsky is "Propaganda & the Public Mind.” His forthcoming book is "The Decline & Fall of Public Broadcasting."

Alternative Radio has been taken off the air at KPFK 90.7 Pacifica Radio. Some of the greatest, most dynamic, radical and progressive voices, the voices of the Real Pacifica, are no longer heard from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on KPFK. When David Barsamian told KPFK General Manager Mark Schubb that he didn't want Alternative Radio programs used as premiums during the recent spring fund drive, May 16 to May 25, Schubb was "less than pleased," and Alternative Radio was not broadcast during the fund drive, or ever since.

The Pacifica Campaign has launched a battle to restore David Barsamian’s Alternative Radio to KPFK’s airwaves. The Pacifica Campaign is a grass-roots organization, representing listeners and staff alike, fighting to preserve Pacifica's 50-year tradition of progressive, community-based radio.
