Pacifica Radio Archives
The Encyclopedia of Sound
Tuesday, Nov. 13, all Pacifica stations will air a 15-hour special produced by Pacifica Radio Archives. You'll
get to hear highlights from its brand-new audio collection, The Encyclopedia of Sound.
Pacifica Radio Archives introduces its latest master collection of historic audio, diving deep into the
storied corners of public radio stations KPFK 90.7 FM – Los Angeles, KPFA 94.1 FM – Berkeley,
KPFT 90.1 FM – Houston, WPFW 89.3 FM – Washington DC, and WBAI 99.5 FM – New York.
Rare, significant, and unfiltered, this new collection not only dutifully showcases familiar names
synonymous with Pacifica Radio and progressive politics, arts and culture, but also introduces listeners
to voices obscure – yet voices no less important to the distinct sound that is now known collectively
across the world as Public Radio.
In this anthology you will find over 1000 hours of voices of Pacifica including Noam Chomsky, Jazz Pianist
Mary Lou Williams, Irish Feminist Padraigin McGillicuddy, Pete Seeger, Oakland General Strike of 1946,
The Beat Poets of San Francisco including Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Laurie Anderson,
Maxine Hong Kingston, Jamaican "I Threes" legends Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths, Nobel Peace Prize
winner Bishop Desmond Tutu, Henry Miller, Gore Vidal, Howard Zinn, Audre Lorde, Arundhati Roy,
Tariq Ali, Howard Zinn, Dolores Huerta, Paul Robeson, Ntozake Shange, Dizzy Gillespie and so many more.
You can listen to the broadcast on any of Pacifica's stations, via their web streams, via the updated
Pacifica Radio app, here, and pacificanetwork.org.
Listeners will be able to get this new collection on a 64GB USB drive, similar to the one introduced a
year ago (Voices that Change the World). Both collections will be available for a donation. All funds
raised will support the digitization and preservation efforts of PRA, to help save the thousands of
historic audio recordings that are currently on analog tape.
