10:00 a.m.   The Grateful Dead: Live at The Boston Music Hall

I remember the Music Hall fondly. It had the best acoustics in Boston. Today? Today it’s for the elite set. In 1983, it was renamed the Wang Center for the Arts after An Wang, who donated a boatload of money to it. Now, it’s called Citi Performing Arts Center, as part of the corporatization of our nation.

Nevertheless, the Dead was just one of many bands that graced its stage in the 70s and 80s.

1:00 p.m.     Chris Hedges Discusses Constructing Rebellion & Overthrowing Corporate Tyranny

This may seem like a continual topic, but given our present state of apathy, it is something that needs to be repeated over and over to the American people. There is no other choice.

4:00 p.m.    Lies, Half Truths, and Omissions, Episode 1: Christopher Columbus Was Not A Hero

If you think this guy still deserves a national holiday, you need to listen in to this and understand his role in the genocide of the Native Americans. Our legacy has been built on a lie, and it is time we faced our past.
