I’m still waiting for that “change”. I don’t see it happening yet. Still us radio rebels continue our struggle. One of my favorites right now is an angry guy who goes down into his basement and makes videos for youtube. The show is called “The Stench of Truth” and I recommend it highly. We still have a little free speech in this country so let’s use it before we lose it. I see the ever-widening powers of federal agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and I get concerned. I see regular military troops at traffic stops and I get concerned. I see outbreaks of never-seen-before contagious diseases and I get concerned. During the Bush years, it felt sort of like Germany in 1938. Now we have Obama and it’s starting to feel like Germany in 1941. I’m currently reading “The Rise of the Fourth Reich” by Jim Marrs. I would also recommend that to you. I’m not all gloom and doom though. What I see is most Americans going about their daily activities, reporting for work, paying their taxes, and obeying the law. That’s where our strength is-in the people. Folks are worried. They have good reason to be worried, but if we all can keep it together and hold our “leaders” accountable, I have faith that we as a nation can pull through. Here in Berkeley, our local pirate station will be celebrating ten years on the air come july 31. There are plans for a big party. I’ll update you in the next newsletter two months from now. Until then, keep on fighting for freedom and support your local micro-power station. -Paul Griffin (for the AMPB)
Ever wonder how to make the construction light signs change their text? Now you can with these handy instructions:
“It will ask you for a password. Try “DOTS”, the default password.
In all likelihood, the crew will not have changed it. However if they did, never fear. Hold “Control” and “Shift” and while holding, enter “DIPY”. This will reset the sign and reset the password to “DOTS” in the process. You’re in”
Oh the possibilities...

On February 17, 2004, the Berkeley City Council voted on a resolution to allow Berkeley Liberation Radio to operate within the City of Berkeley, thus legitimizing our station as an important part of the local community. You can view the pdf file of the resolution below.
After a couple weeks of grueling designing, organizing and editing, the new Berkeley Liberation Radio website is now available for public consumption!
What's so great about this new website? It is completely interactive - all DJs can post content for our listeners to enjoy, and the listeners are able to easily interact with the individuals that make up the BLR Collective. Individual DJ pages display the content of their shows as well as a collection of streaming show archives. Additionally, the ten year history of the station has been organized and archived in order to document how the collective came to be presently.
Much much more stuff will be available soon just for DJs, as well as for visitors to the site, so visit often to find out what's new.
Our old website, www.berkeleyliberationradio.org is on an indefinite hiatus as no one currently has access to it. The site will remain online, but please note that it is out of date and there is nothing we can do about that at this time. The hope is that eventually we will be able to merge the domain name with this new site.
So enjoy, and keep listening to always free pirate radio, 104.1FM Berkeley Liberation Radio!
