Monday, Jan. 20, the night of President Clinton's
inauguration, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello will host Radio
Free L. A. , a two our radio show/netcast beginning at 8 P.M. (PST) that will
combine "cutting edge music" and "confrontational politics." According to Radio
Free L. A. organizers, the purpose of the show, which you will be able to
access from Addicted To Noise's "Sonic Lodge," is to "erase the boundary
between alternative music and alternative political perspectives."
set to perform include members of Rage Against the Machine, Beck, Cypress Hill
and members of Pearl Jam. The show will also feature interviews with Michael
Moore (Roger & Me, "TV Nation"), Mumia Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier,
Subcomandante Marcos of EZLN (Zapatista Army of National Liberation) and Noam
Chomsky. Chuck D. will be talking about Martin Luther King's birthday, and a
"remix" of President Clinton's 1996 Democratic convention speech, as well as
remixes of Robert Dole and Pat Buchanan's 1996 Republican convention speeches.
Discussions and debates are expected to take place in which "musicians,
activists, callers, on-line participants and the hosts scrap like dogs about
the music and issues of the day."
At Addicted To Noise, many of us believe
that rock 'n' roll is a powerful and far-reaching force for positive change in
our society. We hope you'll join Tom Morello and his guests for an evening that
is certain to be as informative and educational as it will be entertaining.
