For a peaceful New Year: Subversity looks back at 2002

On our New Year's Eve edition, Subversity, a KUCI public affairs radio program, looks back at the year 2002, airing clips from previous shows. The show airs Tuesday, December 31, 2002, from 4-5 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California, and is Web-cast via

Our New Year's Resolution is to continue to work for peace and social change.

Our many thanks to the following who were interviewed on Subversity in 2002, both left (predominantly) and right.

Schoolteacher Roy Bauer; professors Ralph Cicerone, Paul Gilroy, Ian Lipkin, Elizabeth Loftus, Harris Mirkin, Ngo Vinh Long; authors Bill Ayers, William Blum, Judith Levine, John Mayer, Stuart Timmons, Eric C. Wat; magazine publisher Peter Ian Cummings; film directors Gil M. Portes and Rod Pulido; actors Verwin GatPandan, Abe Pagtama, Ronalee Par, Jose Saenz; activists Francisco Ceja, Craig Collins, Charlene, John Earl, Cindy Hanel, Dez Kwok, Mike Latner, Wayne Madsen, Tamara Menteer, Marissa Nuncio, Andrew Tonkovich, Phil Wilkie, Susan Wright, Xiao Qiang; lawyer Richard Herman; and congressional candidates Chris Cox and John Graham.

This year we also aired talks by cultural critic Edward Said and activist and 2000 Green Party vice presidential candidate Winona La Duke. We also aired the rally for the UCI lecturers strike where many spoke, including Irvine Mayor Larry Agran, UCI history prof. Mike Davis, and many other UCI professors and union activists. We also most recently aired portions of the Los Angeles memorial service for Harry Hay. See also the NY Times Magazine profile of Hay by Armistead Maupin [registration needed]:

Our thanks to UCI's Stefano Sensi and Glen Mimura for helping us interview Ian Lipkin and Paul Gilroy respectively.

And this year we celebrated the life of activists Josie Montoya and Harry Hay, and covered the detention of AIDS activist and Fulbright scholar Wan Yanhai in China.

Our show next week (January 7), the first during the new Winter season, will feature an interview with Wan, now back in Los Angeles. He discloses in the lengthy interview taped last Saturday what it was like to be detained in a Beijing jail for a month for posting a "secret" document on the Internet, and how he plans to be able to continue his AIDS activism on the Web.

Thanx for listening. And thanx to the support of my KUCI colleagues. During this Winter season, we remain at the same time and day. Have a peaceful new year (or try to resist any war).
