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.

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.
