About Pacifica:
Pacifica was born in the late 1940's out of the peace movement surrounding World War Two. Lewis Hill, a conscientious objector and Washington, D.C. newsman, was fired from his mainstream reporting job when he refused to misrepresent the facts.

This was a time when the idea of a listener-sponsored radio station was a new one which had never been implemented. Many people doubted the viability of a broadcast model which didn't rely on some kind of corporate or government funding. But the idea was too compelling for Hill and others who agreed with him. Pacifica was born and in 1949 KPFA went on the air from Berkeley, California.

In 1960 WBAI became part of the Pacifica network. Since that time WBAI has reported the news of the social, cutural and political avant garde. It has also been a catalyst, providing a home to activists dedicated to social justice and human rights.

An important institution, supported by wonderful artwork What could be better!
