Tell Somebody
A weekly public affairs program on KKFI-FM 90.1, Kansas City community radio.
Citizens United Anniversary, FCC v AT&T, and Honeywell's Anti-Union Stance at Nuclear Weapons Plant

The January 25, 2011 edition of Tell Somebody looks at last year's Citizens United v FEC decision, and an upcoming decision on the question of whether corporations should have "personal privacy" rights under the Freedom of Information Act.  We hear audio from a Public Citizen press conference on the Citizens United anniversary and an explanation of the AT&T case from Public Citizen attorney Adina Rosenbaum, followed by some audio of the actual arguments.  In the news, Kansas City police raid a homeless camp, and a union officer representing workers at the Kansas City nuclear weapons parts plant warns of a possible work stoppage because of Honeywell's anti-union attitude that has workers afraid to report safety violations in the plant.

Barbara Rice, Maurice Copeland, and Sick Bannister Fed Complex Workers Town Hall

The January 11, 2011 edition of Tell Somebody starts out with excerpts from Dr. Martin Luther King's 1967 speech Beyond Vietnam where he reminds us that there is such a thing as "too late."  Bannister Federal Complex worker Barbara Rice recalls the results when she started emailing friends and compiling a list of co-workers from the complex who had serious illnesses, and then we hear some audio from a town hall for sick Bannister Federal complex workers and survivors, including comments from Ron Elmlinger of Cold War Soldiers and Donna Hand and Wayne Knox of Cold War Patriots.  Former Kansas City Plant worker Maurice Copeland recalls his work at the weapons plant, and then we hear an excerpt from a Tuscon press conference the day after the shootings at Gabrielle Giffords' "Congress on your corner" town hall.
