Rustbelt Radio for August 10, 2009
Welcome to this week's edition of Rustbelt Radio, the Pittsburgh Independent Media Center's weekly review of the news from the grassroots, news overlooked by the corporate media.
On today's show...
Rustbelt Radio is broadcast live from WRCT studios every other Monday at 6 PM on 88.3 FM in Pittsburgh, and the program airs again on WRCT every Tuesday morning at 9AM.
We can also be heard weekly on the following stations:
We're also available on the internet, both on WRCT's live webstream at W-R-C-T dot ORG and for download, stream or podcast from our website at radio dot I-N-D-Y-P-G-H dot org.
Ms. Sachiko Masuoka was born in Hiroshima in 1927. At the age of 18, she experienced the August 6, 1945 atomic bombing in Hiroshima at about 2 miles away from the hypocenter. She lost her little brother and sister to the bomb. In 1962, after marrying, she came to the United States. She has been talking about her experience in Hiroshima only for the last couple of years, and now shares her story with audiences around the country. In September of 2008 she spoke at Carnegie Mellon University and today we bring you her words.
You have been listening to Sachiko Masuoka, Hiroshima bomb survivor who spoke in Pittsburgh last fall.
