What about live streaming on the internet? Right now we are not streaming, but we do plan to do so when finances permit. Your donations can help make this happen.
Many of the programs we carry are not broadcast by ANY other local stations. Most programs are independently produced at community stations around the country, and many of these stations are also affiliated via the Pacifica Network. We are proud to bring such a wide-ranging selection of programs to our listeners. While we don't expect that everyone will love all of the programs, we do think that just about anyone will find at least a few that they find important enough to fit into their busy days. Look at our programming schedule here.
News & commentary programs include: Democracy Now!, The Monitor, Breaking News with Ian Matters, Al Jazeera News, Free Speech Radio News, and Counterspin. Each weekday at 1PM we air The Capital Pressroom, a program about New York State news and politics.
Our science, health, and environmental programs include: Big Picture Science, Explorations in Science, Planetary Radio, Living On Earth, The People's Pharmacy & Radio Ecoshock.
