Activist Radio will attempt to show you how the few richest of our citizens lie to the rest of us to expand their power and wealth. They are sick with greed, of course. But so far, the rest of us are what might be worse, and that is stupid. Each week, we bring you history you never learned in high school, news you do not see on TV, and some alternative music to get you politically active.

Best for Hudson Valley Area
If you're like me and you live within 100 miles of the Mid Hudson Valley, you'll enjoy the local rundown of events for activists. Nevertheless everyone should find "the history you never heard in high school" very eye opening. Fred and Gary put news events in a fresh perspective you'll never hear from the big corporate media, so prepare to be shocked and enlightened. Became a subscriber after one listen.
Veterans For Peace activist
Activist Radio is as good as it gets. Fred Nagel is quite simply one of the most interesting and knowledgeable interviewers around. Not to mention that his choice of quests on the show, week after week is outstanding.
Fred and Gary provide a wonderful progressive alternative to all the censored and too frequently biased information reported on the main stream news. I suggest you listen and then make an informed decision. I congratulate your courage and commitment to protecting human rights and speaking for the 99%
