To celebrate International Women’s Day, the programmers who were “fired” from CKLN — including hosts from CKLN’s only feminist programs, as well as trans, queer, and activist programmers — are holding a five-hour broadcast tomorrow from a pub around the corner from the radio station that locked them out. The broadcast will feature voices otherwise silenced in the mainstream, as well as focus on community grassroots media across this country, its significance and importance. Visit the Take Back Our Radio Station blog for more information on the locked-out volunteers and tomorrow’s broadcast.
