We commemorate  Armistice Day – Veterans Day – Remembrance Day…………..A memorial of the day in 1918 when the Allied Forces signed an armistice With Germany effectively ending all military operations and hostilities in all theatres and fronts of World War One. On this show we’ll hear from two veterans who have focused their life on peace.  Discuss strategies for ending war and the Military Industrial Complex with a left-wing military historian and professor.  We’ll also hear some anti-war music, both well known songs and some just written.



Check out the Veterans For Peace website and learn more about the campaign to Reclaim Armistice Day.

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.
