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.

A rather informative look at history you were not taught in school. Somewhat boring and very un-willing to step out of the box of "leftism". YOU should listen to the show anyways.
Wanted: Active Listeners
If Fred Nagel wants people to be active listeners, he needs to get to the point and not play so much music. It is called "activist radio", not "activist music radio".
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.
