Pacifica will have a one-day special national broadcast on Tuesday, June 27 – a dramatic reading of George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984”. You’ll be able to hear it on kpft.org or simulcast on any of the other four Pacifica stations, their web streams, or on our national website at pacifica.org. Regular programming will be pre-empted for this special reading.
What you’ll hear on June 27, starting at 8am Central Time and going for 15 hours, is the dramatic reading of the entire novel, recorded at KPFK in 1975, as read by longtime KPFK morning host and blacklisted writer Charles Morgan, and legendary voiceover artist June Foray. It’s from the Pacifica Radio Archives, and is one small part of what’s in the giant 1,350-hour jump drive “Voices That Change the World” USB collection from the Pacifica Radio Archives. You can support KPFT and pledge now for the Voices That Change the World jump drive at pledge.kpft.org.
We are thrilled to be able to bring this engaging program and discussion to our listeners nationwide, like only Pacifica Radio can. Regular Tuesday programming will resume the following week.
