WBAI Coup; Medical Use of Marijuana

rvine -- Alternative News at KUCI today takes a look at latest firings over the weekend at WBAI, the Pacifica station in Manhattan; and Subversity chats with two advocates of medical marijuana.

In a pre-Christmas strike, Pacifica management has locked out many staffers of WBAI (including Democracy Now's Amy Goodman), while replacing top management at the station. Alternative News, airing at KUCI on 88.9 fm in Orange County from 4-5 p.m. today, takes a historical look at the long-brewing controversy over the alternative radio network. For more on the situation, check out, the home page of the folks seeking community control, and also, the home page of the union at WBAI.

And on Subversity, from 5-6 p.m. today, we chat with two medical marijuana advocates about what's the latest developments in the legalization of marijuana usage. Doug Scribner and Steve Kubby chat with show host Dan Tsang in a break from the usual holiday hoopla.

Both shows are web-cast on

Have a great break and see you all next year!
