Today's picket line at WBAI
Fri Jun 29 12:20:21 2001

at least half of us coming down because of Vajra's announcement on WBAI, echoed on this board, to COME ON DOWN. After DN today, Amy had a meeting with the station managers who are meeting at the station. She came out of 120 Wall St. shortly before 11 am, accompanied by a small group of people (who may have been on her show this morning -- didn't hear it because I was on my way down to 120 Wall). We cheered her. I didn't hear what happened at her mtg. with management.

Mike Levine walked by on his way to the station and a bunch of us engaged him for about 15-20 minutes in a discussion of station and Pacifica politics. Ryme was taping for WBIX. Among notable quotes from Mike: "I am not political." "I'm on the internet." "I haven't investigated [changes on the Pacifica National Board] because I barely have time to do "my" work."

Celebrities at the picket line included Curly S, "Martine from Manhattan" (who told Hugh a week or so ago that all the talk about discipline gets her "hot"), Vajra (of course! today's hero), and lots of other listeners.

It was loads of fun.
