Just what happened to Black community radio . . .

Just another historical example of what happened to Black community radio . . .

In case you were wondering . . . The Story of more than 50 years of service to the Black community of Boston. Thanks to Kathy Hughes and her Radio One empire, this happened all over the country.

Hundreds of stations bought up under the FCC minority purchase program and then sold to the big boys. What was left, used to leverage capital for the company any way that it could. But we hand out NAACP Image Award to persons who ravage our community in this way.  We should be outraged, but instead, like in our politics, the opt for the available best.  Unfortunately in radio, there is no such thing.

WILD-AM Now Serves A Very Different Audience

June 28, 2011

BOSTON — 1090 WILD-AM was the scrappy little engine that could. A small-budget radio station with big ideas with over 40 years on air, it earned a trusted place in the heart and soul of Boston’s inner city community. But now that’s all gone. The station serves a very different audience.

In the 1980s, WILD-AM was the hot spot. If you wanted to find out what was happening in the city, you’d tune in. If you needed to get information to the African-American inner city community, the red brick building on Warren Street across from Roxbury District Court is where you’d go, whether you were a concert promoter, community activist or politician.

“The Coach” Willie Maye was sports director and morning co-host at WILD for 22 years. He recalls the good old days.

“We made some great strides, everyone wanted to be part of it,” Maye said. “Here you had this little radio station that was a daytime radio station. And [we] really made some great things happen. I remember back in ’85, we won best morning show in Boston Magazine, which was huge.”

In the 1980s, 1090 WILD-AM was the hot spot. If you wanted to find out what was happening in the city, you’d tune in.

And just about everybody came through.

“Luther Vandross, I remember, came one of the coldest Veterans’ Days back in the ’80s,” Maye said. “The line went out the door, around the corner, up the hill, because everyone one to see the late, great Luther Vandross. And he was great.”

But that’s all changed now.

“Shows hardly come to town anymore because promoters don’t feel as though they have a way to get the word out to people to come to their shows. So you don’t see as many African-American concerts here in Boston anymore. And it’s been like that in a big, big way in the last five years or so,” Maye said.

Maye echoes what many in the city are saying — that the voice of the community is gone.

What’s lost, said “Coach,” is more than a brick and mortar building, more than a radio station with a great playlist. The loss of WILD is especially felt when it comes to news, entertainment and cultural events now that the station has been reprogrammed.

As of June 1, China Radio International is the new sound of WILD. The station is targeting “new Americans.”

One of the reasons WILD is no longer on the air is that the marketplace has changed — the competition is greater. What’s happened to WILD is not surprising to media observers like WBUR media analyst John Carroll.

“I think it’s a reflection of what’s happening in the radio market overall, a movement toward consolidation, a movement toward nationalization or internationalization, a movement away from local community presence on radio stations and more toward major conglomerates, which are much less expensive to operate,” Carroll said. “One of the issues is can anyone make the FCC care about this?”

The Federal Communications Commission said it is not aware of the change in programming at WILD.

Radio One, which holds the WILD license, has a local marketing agreement, or LMA, with Douglas Broadcasting, which is airing China Radio International. Radio One is not required to report that LMA to the FCC.

Douglas Broadcasting says the new programming at WILD is an experiment. The company president, Greg Douglas, said he has no plans to sell commercial time. He would not say whether his company is being paid by the Chinese government to broadcast the programming.

“I can’t believe that this is going under the radar,” said media historian Donna Halper, who has written a book about Boston radio.

“I get the sense that it kind of violates the spirit of the law and I’d be very curious as to whether someone ought not to look into it, because I can’t believe that this is what needs to be going on in the minority community in Boston,” she said.

Longtime Boston civic activist and former Boston NAACP President Louis Elisa is doing just that.

“It’s a whisper campaign unless someone gives it a voice,” Elisa said.

Elisa said there is a movement to take back what for years was a drum for Boston inner city community.

“I know that a number of people will be petitioning,” Elisa said. “Our local Congressman Capuano, as well as Congressman Markey to get some some support to say to the FCC, ‘We need the opportunity to acquire this station, and acquire its assets, in order to keep our community in the know.’ ”

It’s important, said Elisa, because communication is the key to survival of any society.

Courage to Dissent

Courage to Dissent.

ourage to Dissent: Atlanta and the Long History of the Civil Rights Movement—a groundbreaking legal history of the civil rights movement—written from a bottom-up perspective.

In this sweeping history of the Civil Rights movement in Atlanta–the South’s largest and most economically important city–from the 1940s through 1980, Tomiko Brown-Nagin shows that the movement featured a vast array of activists and many sophisticated approaches to activism. Long before “black power” emerged and gave black dissent from the mainstream civil rights agenda a new name, African Americans in Atlanta debated the meaning of equality and the steps necessary to obtain social and economic justice.

This groundbreaking book uncovers the activism of visionaries–both well-known legal figures and unsung citizens–from across the ideological spectrum who sought something different from, or more complicated than, “integration.” Local activists often played leading roles in carrying out the integrationist agenda of the NAACP, but some also pursued goals that differed markedly from those of the venerable civil rights organization. Brown-Nagin discusses debates over politics, housing, public accommodations, and schools. She documents how the bruising battle over school desegregation in the 1970s, which featured opposing camps of African Americans, had its roots in the years before Brown v. Board of Education.

Exploring the complex interplay between the local and national, between lawyers and communities, between elites and grassroots, and between middle-class and working-class African Americans,Courage to Dissent tells gripping stories about the long struggle for equality that speak to the nation’s current urban crisis. This remarkable book will transform our understanding of the Civil Rights era.

Courage to Dissent adds a remarkable array of figures to the pantheon of  civil rights lawyers and activistsA.T. Walden, Len Holt, Howard Moore, Jr., Margie Pitts Hames, Ethel Mae Mathewscourageous citizens who complicate our understanding of the movement.

“Commentaries On the Times Radio” with Playthell Benjamin

Commentaries gen 6

In Conversation with Dr. Gerald Horne John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston

Gerald Horne is an African American historian who currently holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston. He received his PhD from Columbia University and a J.D. from theUniversity of California, Berkeley. He is a frequent contributor to Political Affairs magazine.

He is a prolific author, Horne has published on W. E. B. Du Bois and has written books on a wide range of neglected but by no means marginal or minor episodes of world history. He specializes in illuminating previously obscure or misrepresented struggles of humanity for social justice, in particular communist struggles and struggles against imperialism, colonialism, fascism and racism. Individuals whose lives his work has highlighted in their historical contexts have included the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter John Howard LawsonFerdinand Smith (Jamaican-born communist, sailor, labor leader), the perplexing Lawrence Dennis, an African-American fascist and racist who passed for white, and the feminist, anti-colonialist, internationalist intellectual Shirley Graham DuBois whose own career was overshadowed by that of her famous husband. While many of Horne’s books use a celebrated, intriguing or politically engaged individual as a prism to inspect the historical forces of their times, Horne has also produced broad canvas chronicles of infrequently examined periods and aspects of the history of white supremacy and imperialism such as the post-civil war involvement of the US ruling class—newly dispossessed of human chattels—with slavery in Brazil, which was not legally abolished until 1888, or the attempts by Japanese imperialists in the mid-20th century to appear as the leaders of a global war against white supremacy, thus allies and instruments of liberation for people of color oppressed by Anglo-American Empire.

Manning Marable said, “Gerald Horne is one of the most gifted and insightful historians on racial matters of his generation.”

But Christopher Dosner is neither one. When I saw his military record and the fact that he was once a member of the LAPD, I decided to do some investigation, beginning with reading his “Manifesto,” then reading a variety of materials on him. It was a revelation. I think it is a representative anecdote on the state of racism, corruption and brutality in contemporary police community relations in the great American cities.
