LISTEN TO PACIFICA
Can you believe it: Pacifica Founder Lewis Hill's mission was to create a new kind of radio, supported by listeners, owing nothing to sponsors, providing an outlet for creative expression, and a safe haven for artistic experiments with the radio medium.
I grew up listening to Pacifica and highly recommend it.

From the Vault to the Classroom:
The Campus Campaign
On Tuesday, November 18th, 2008, we are launching our Campus Campaign. With your donation of $75-$5000 to the Pacifica Radio Archives during the broadcast, PRA will send a duplicate of your selected gift to a school of your choice. This is our way of providing a new generation with a Sound Education.
On Tuesday, November 18th, 2008 Pacifica listeners will be treated to a day-long broadcast featuring powerful sounds from the archives collection AND get the chance to select an educational package of From the Vault, like the Civil Rights pack featuring 10 hours of carefully selected audio, and sponsor a school of their choice with a duplicate of their selection. Educational packages will include: Civil Rights, Malcolm X, U.S. History, Women's Studies, Environment, 1968 in review, Studs Terkel, Noam Chomsky, and more.
You can order audio and/or transcripts from the archives. Great for Gifts!
I suggest making Pacifica a regular part of your news and entertainment routine.
