WHO WE ARE

WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

Joe Hill's Legacy: A New Biography with Author Bill Adler 27:59  

"The Man Who Never Died: The Life, Times and Legacy of Joe Hill -
American Labor Icon"
with
author William Adler

Labor Day, marked the day for the release of "The Man Who Never
Died". This book presents new evidence of Joe Hill's innocence of
the murder for which Utah executed him in 1915. It also names the
likely perpetrator of that murder: a career criminal who went on to
work for Al Capone. The Man Who Never Died, Joe Hill is a narrative
history of Joe Hill's life and the rise of the Industrial Workers of the
World, the IWW, the Wobblies. It seeks to put Joe Hill’s martyrdom,
his organizing, his music in the radical context of his times. What
better cultural icon to inspire and move us than Joe Hill, the man
who never died. We speak with author Bill Adler who keeps Joe Hill
alive.
