WWPM MediaNet is gaining ground quickly with its reputation it has made in Internet radio and with the current programming actions made by general manager Jake Leonard on Friday will prove that. The station is not even 90 days into operation and the wise decisions made by station management, which includes Leonard, assistant general managers Trevor Gordon and Eric Lamb and our friends at Sickness Radio, Tommy DeVito and Bill Clarkson.
As of Tuesday, November 2 (which is also Election Day for the midterm elections), Law and Disorder Radio will debut every Tuesday night following I-70 Baseball at 7:00 PM EST/6:00 PM CST. It is an hour-long show (actually about 54 minutes) which airs from independent radio station WBAI 99.5 FM based in New York City. WBAI-FM is independently owned by the Pacifica Foundation, which owns and operates five sister stations, airs programs on 131 affiliate stations and one associate station.
As posted on their About page:
Law and Disorder is a weekly, independent radio program airing on several stations across the United States and podcasting on the web. Law and Disorder gives listeners access to rare legal perspectives on issues concerning civil liberties, privacy, right to dissent and the horrendous practices of torture exercised by the US government. This program examines the political forces and legislation that are moving the United States into a police state. Four of the top progressive attorneys and activists host the program and bring an amazing, diverse line up of guests from grassroots activists to politically mindful authors. Most importantly, Law and Disorder brings access to attorneys who give insights to some of the most controversial cases. Airing on Pacifica station WBAI 99.5 FM, Law and Disorder will sometimes be the generator of news within the radio echo-chamber throughout the country.
Law & Disorder Radio is hosted by four progressive attorneys and activists:
- Michael Ratner, president of the Center For Constitutional Rights and author of Guantanamo: What The World Should Know
- Heidi Boghosian, national director of the National Lawyers Guild
- Michael Steven Smith, organizer and chairperson of the Left Forum and author/editor/co-editor of six legal books
- Geoff Brady, the show’s producer and progressive activist
Law & Disorder Radio currently airs on 23 FM stations, 3 community-oriented FM stations, 2 college FM stations (one being Carnegie Mellon University), 2 AM stations and 6 Internet stations (which already includes our station) for a total of 36 broadcast stations.
