FundingDrive

11:00:00 2:00 Welcome to the strangest of the one thousand and fifty-eight Gorilla Radio episodes I’ve presented here at CFUV over the last 21 years.

This was to be my contribution to the 2020 FundingDrive show, but that, like so much else around us was not meant to be. The microbe that stopped the World has stopped us too, for now.

But, and it’s an enormous but, we will continue to produce radio, just not for the next while in the way we’ve done so for so long. That means, firstly; no more live broadcasting.

Virtually all of my shows have been done live from the basement of the SUB. There’s no replacing the energy of live performance, but we’ll try to bring the same urgency and vibrancy to our programming we always have.

For today however, I’ll bring in some music, and some segments of interviews past, and perhaps a little blatherskiting. And, I’ll remind; though the FundingDrive has hit a major roadblock, you can still express your support for the station and the show financially online at: supportcfuv.ca.

Here’s something from long-time go to band, Transglobal Underground’s great, Impossible Broadcasting disc.

When Donald Trump treated the nation to his third State of the Union speech in January among the participants of his one-ring pantomime was Juan Guaido. Guaido’s specialty act is impersonating the president of Venezuela, (and to be honest, it’s the only act this pony knows). But, tricky Juan found a receptive audience in the US Congress, receiving a standing ovation from both sides of that body’s undivided foreign policy establishment.

Joe Emersberger is a Canada-based writer whose work appears at FAIR.org, VenezuelAnalysis, The Canary and is primarily focused on media lies, distortion, and confabulation. I talked to Joe shortly after Mr. Trump’s speech about Juan Guaido, Washington, and most importantly about Canada’s policy towards the duly elected government of Venezuela and democracy more generally.
