If you would like to be a part of the car procession, please rsvp to [address removed].



Dear Democratic Activists:

Set forth below are the details for a very important rally we are having in San Diego this coming Friday, Oct. 12th.

While the most immediate focus of this rally is to save our local progressive talk station KLSD AM 1360, the rally is about much more than just KLSD; it is about saving democracy on our PUBLIC airways; it is about saving full and fair public debate of important political, social and economic issue on our airwaves. It?s about drawing a line in the sand against the conservative corporate grip on American broadcast media and against further corporate consolidation of media outlets in this country.

What is happening in broadcast media today is a major threat to our democracy. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be holding hearings later this month on further loosening restrictions on media ownership. Further relaxation of rules will allow even fewer media conglomerates to own even more of our public airways. That leaves SIGNIFCANT control over CONTENT on the airways in the hands of a very few. We must take a stand against what is happening. (For those of you who may not have heard, Clear Channel owns KLSD AM 1360 and plans to flip the station to an all-sports talk station on October 15th.)

San Diego is just one of a growing number of cities losing their progressive talk stations. (Go to www.nonstopradio.com for more information on approximately 20 cities that have lost or will soon lose their progressive talk station.) Curious, isn?t it, that this is happening just before the beginning of what will be a very contentious election year. The voices of progressive talk show hosts, progressive candidates and the progressive community are being silenced on the public airwaves across the nation. Unions, progressive candidates, progressive activists --- please take note that your progressive platform, community and network over the airwaves is being destroyed.

Please act before it is too late!!!! Save our democracy!!! Come join the rally on Oct. 12th. Details below.
Please forward this e-mail on to your club lists and encourage others to participate. Print it out and hand it out at any meeting you attend!

Your assistance in spreading the word to your club members will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any support you can offer!!! Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.

SAVE KLSD?SAVE Progressive Talk Radio!
Dear Fellow Americans for a Vibrant Democracy:

The battle to save KLSD (and to take a stand against the conservative grip on American broadcast media) is building momentum.

We have to draw a line in the sand to show the whole country that we will fight to have our voices heard. We will not accept any substitute: NO HD, NO LOW POWERED FM ? NOTHING LESS THAN FULL AM DIAL BROADCAST RADIO.

Other cities have and will be losing their progressive talk radio stations too!!! Take a stand! Please attend this make or break rally!!!

RALLY DETAILS:
Madison, Wisconsin saved their progressive talk station from a Clear Channel flip. Let?s follow Madison?s lead and save San Diego?s only progressive talk station, KLSD AM 1360!!!!!!

[i It?s time to RALLY AGAIN!!! THIRD TIME JUST MIGHT BE THE CHARM!!!

We need "ALL HANDS ON DECK" for our Third RALLY (and quite possibly last chance) to save KLSD. If you need to take time off work, please try to do so.


We need to show up in massive numbers with at least five times the strength as last time - so bring friends, family, etc. Contact/forward to all your election friends, environmentalists, unions, progressive candidates, you name it.
