Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn spark lively and thoughtful exchange on Rag Radio

Activist-scholars Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who were preeminent — and controversial — figures in the ’60s-’70s New Left, were our guests for a very energetic and provocative hour on Rag Radio, Friday, January 17, 2014.

Rag Radio is a weekly syndicated radio program produced and hosted by long-time alternative journalist and Rag Blog editor Thorne Dreyer, himself a veteran of SDS and the ’60s New Left. Rag Radio is engineered and co-produced by Tracey Schulz and is recorded at the studios of KOOP 91.7-FM, a cooperatively-run all-volunteer community radio station in Austin, Texas.

Multi-media magus Bob Simmons, who was a pioneer in “underground” FM radio in the ’60s and ’70s, produced a handsome and compelling video of the spirited session, which is
posted at YouTube and embedded above. The video was edited by Simmons and Jasper McCollum.
A podcast of the show can be downloaded at the Internet Archive.
