BEST OF NEWS NOW – OCTOBER 21ST

Monday, October 21st:

For our fundraising drive, you will be hearing the best moments of News Now. We are showcasing the importance of community-led news and underrepresented voices on the radio in a time when multinational media conglomerates rule the airwaves and a shrinking pool of opinions and tastes are represented. Please call 416-736-5656 at any point throughout the show to donate and support community radio and alternative news.

And to show we care about our listeners, every show we are offering our first donor of $20 or more a brand-new, hot off the presses, 15th edition of Upping the Anti, a radical collection of publications which documents resistance groups and international left politics from a variety of voices! To learn more visit: http://uppingtheanti.org/

Today’s feature clips will include segments from interviews on the topics of eating disorders, veganism, fat sex and the Almost Effect. Then, on our Independent Arts & Culture Report, we will hear clips about Toronto artists the Cliks and Keysha Freshh. But first, on our York Community Report, we hear about issues and topics that are connected to the York Community directly such as York Professor Deborah Davidson’s tattoo memorial and OPIRG York’s DisOrientation.
