  1. I want to to thank you for this very good read!! I certainly enjoyed every bit of it.
    I have got you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post…

  2. Once you make sure that you are in safe hands for lip
    piercing, you can decide on the type of this ring that you want to wear.

    Today, jewelry is made from popular variety and is available in all kinds
    and designs. The trend’s picking up with men, as they find it masculine in comparison to gold or any other metal.

  3. This is the statement programmer Jared Ball made on his March 29 show and a link to the show, which included Bob Daughtry, Tom Porter, Salih Latif and others:

    JARED BALL:
    “The issue, for me, is less the move to CC, or the specifics of that legal/political relationship. The issue is the process that brought us here, the secrecy involved, the wasted time, the rushed pressure imposed, the blame of the community for its relative lack of clarity, the previously existing list of issues raised in a no confidence vote against hughes, the narrow reactionary circle of PNJ’s (Pete Tucker, Tony Norman, John Hughes) sway over this and their related PR campaign against the people with false claims of unity and family, the liberalization and whitening of the station and network, the colonial relationship we have with Pacifica, the political direction of our programmers and the future role this station is to play in fostering radical thought and organization.”

    THE SHOW:
    The Prospects for Black Radical Broadcasting and Who Will Survive America?
    Katea Stitt, Tom Porter, Salih Latif, Bob Daughtry and Don Debar joined us this week for a rousing roundtable discussion of the future (?) of WPFW 89.3 FM and Black radical broadcasting. The recent struggles over WPFW, WBAI and the Pacifica Radio Network were outlined and put in broader political context, we also heard some good music and asked, as did Amiri Baraka once upon a time, “Who will survive America? Few Americans, very few negroes and no crackas at all!”
