The Official Jefferson
Does it get better than this? It's no secret! Click the link on the left
to listen to Jefferson Airplane right from Fulton
Street! (OK-not exactly from Fulton Street-but it is
easier to believe in than a magic bullet!).
Jefferson Airplane is still flying - go visit the

This is a link to one of many great last.fm.com
stations. Formed in London, England, Last.FM was
intitially set up to promote Indie Music and all the
great stuff you don't hear on, uh, FM. So stop being
so F M in it. This station rocks with JA, JS, QSMS,
Hawkwind, Syd Barrett and much more!
NPR is a great resource for research. Much more than
a news wire, NPR reporters really get to the heart
of the matter. NPR rarely puts a spin on the news,
so automatically they must be Commies (or
worse-Democrats)! So beware - if the truth scares
you, there is always Fox News.

Vogue magazine describes Le Show as "wildly clever, iconoclastic stew of
talk, music, political commentary, readings of
inadvertently funny public documents or trade
magazines and scripted skits."
For over twenty years, audiences have been enjoying Shearer's gift for
satire and sketch material on Le Show which got its
start in 1983. It ran under various titles before Le
Show was selected through the results of a listener
contest. Harry, known for his voice work on The
Simpsons, writes the sketches and performs all the
voices as he romps through the worlds of media,
politics, sports and show business while providing
an eclectic array of music along the way.

I am giving you two
ways to view this show. A really lo-fi Real Audio
clip for those with dial up and a much improved
MPEG version for Broadband users or dial up folks
with infinite patience.
This was shot with
a Sony Digital 8 camera and the audio was
surprisingly not bad. While this is no epic video
it was a great show and should give you a taste of
the Band's recent efforts. I guess the proper
expression is-some video better than nothing. The

Alternative Radio - Revoking Corporate Charters
Corporations, Corporations. From ExxonMobil to Wal-Mart they dominate
society and politics. Over the last 100 years
corporations have accrued enormous economic power
and legal standing. A corporation is licensed to do
business. These licenses are called charters. In
theory, when a corporation violates its charter, it
can be revoked. That used to happen but not any
more. And now corporate power has gotten a big
boost. On Jan. 21, 2010, the Supreme Court, in
Citizen's United v. Federal Election Commission,
ruled that there are no limitations on campaign
contributions by both domestic and foreign
corporations. Noam Chomsky calls the decision "a
dark day in the history of U.S. democracy, and its
decline." The ruling, "The New York Times," says
"strikes at the heart of democracy" by having "paved
the way for corporations to use their vast
treasuries to overwhelm elections."
Alternative Radio - We The People
Corporate rights are at the core of almost every environmental and social
justice problem that we face. Corporate power grew
immensely toward the end of the 19th century with
the dismantling of legal restraints and the
redefinition of corporations as persons with free
speech rights. Today, the level of corporate power
over the political system and the economy is
unprecedented. And it shows no signs of lessening.
The Citizens United Supreme Court ruling made a bad
situation worse. It allows for unlimited penetration
of corporate money into politics. What does it mean
for the workings of a self-styled democracy to have
corporations calling the shots in Washington and the
state houses? We the people are on the short end of
the stick. How can citizens change this unfair and
