Since its 1996 launch in Baltimore, Md., The Armchair Activist/Grateful Dread Peace Media, our independent noncommercial media activism and writing-services project, has presented Grateful Dread Public Radio, an internet radio station airing diverse sounds and ideas for open minds. The Little Peace-Minded Radio Station That Does provides progressive news/talk programming and commentary, POVs you won’t hear on corporate media, activism information and opportunities, info you can use on a variety of subjects, and our singular “Kind Mix” of multigenre music featuring ”name” and indie artists playing rock, reggae, jamband, country, folk, blues, funk, bluegrass, intelligent pop, ska, world and more.
The mission behind the music and information is to spread a peace and justice message throughout Summit, the California Bay Area and the available listening community (the world); to entertain, inform, inspire and involve in hopes of motivating people to do their part to make this a better world; to give needed exposure to artists shut out of the mainstream; to educate on progressive issues, tolerance and nonviolence; to help in some small way to bring about a more peaceful, just, open society where equality under law exists for all.
Listening is available for free: LISTEN LIVE.
You can also access GratefulDread Public Radio via Live365.com, TiVo, Roku and a host of other devices. It’s also available on your iPhone or Android smartphone: Get the Live365 app and search for GratefulDread Public Radio.
