Thanks for reading, everyone. Various things that have kept me quite busy have also, unfortunately, kept me away from actively blogging in the last couple weeks. That will change, however, with a spate of posts on myriad labor, economic, and political items to come today.
This one includes links for a couple recent shows. The March 19 show features an interview with Leighton Christiansen, a GEO activist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who has twice visited Madison during the height of the protests, and whose excellent, stirring observations of life in the capitol rotunda I posted here on March 1. The March 26 show featured a discussion of and materials related to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, which occurred 100 years ago on March 25, 1911. I read a stirring, first-hand account by William Shepard. Thanks to WEFT factotum, blues mavne, and all-around good guy Bob Paleczny, Illinois World Labor Hour shows are archived at http://www.radio4all.net.
Be sure to tune in to the Illinois World Labor Hour every Saturday at 11 a.m. CT to WEFT 90.1 FM Champaign, IL, also available online at www.weft.org.
