Full Circle 09/08/17 — Chile’s 9/11

On tonight’s show we are remembering September 11th, and since I’m sure you will hear a lot about what happened in New York on this date, we are going to talk about what happened in Chile on September 11th of 1973.

On tonight’s show you’ll learn about what happened in Chile on that day, why it happened, why is it still important and how our bay area responded to it.

Tonight we will interview Chileans Fernando Torres and Hector Salgado.

We will also hear from Eric Leeson, one of the founders of La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley.

Then, we will hear the voice of singer-songwriter Victor Jara and talk a bit about Nobel laureate, Pablo Neruda and his connection to the events.

Tonight we are also honored to have Fernando Torres, a Chilean musician and song-writer who lived in Chile at the time of their September 11th, back in 1973 and who was imprisoned and later exiled.

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
