ORIGINAL POSTING 9/8/09
Not since the days that I anchored the "What's Bothering Bill" lefty radio commentary show on the East Coast at WHUS, Storrs, Connecticut, have I been as excited as I am now. Working with Gustavo Arellano and KPFK, that indy shining tower of radio power in LA, I am going to be breaking out on the air this coming Tuesday with a radio version of Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the "Mexican" in America.
We are still working with the determination of day-laborers, sweating the details over the segments, but I can guarantee one of the pieces will go by the name BROWN IVORY TOWER, set interviews where I talk to some chingon or chingona Latina/o academic, wreaking intellectual havoc across the winsome, gringo laced plains of academe. UPDATE! I will be interviewing the Chicano King of Ohio State University's English Department, the one and only loco-genius Frederick Luis Aldama--Aldama's the author of YOUR BRAIN ON LATINO COMICS (UT PRESS, 2009)
Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 @ 5pm, KPFK 90.7 FM--just hit the nifty tote bag to your left and be instantly transported to the online version of KPFK where you can listen via streaming media; if you live in San Diego county, KPFK comes through for some folks via the magic of their radio dial!
