The one hundred twenty second WBAI Local Station Board (LSB) meeting was held on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, at Alwan-for-the-arts, 16 Beaver Street, 4th floor, in downtown Manhattan. This is not an official Web page of the LSB.
This meeting began 50 minutes late.
For the third time in as many meetings I got to make a Treasurer's Report. I talked about the current quite bad state of WBAI's and Pacifica's finances again. During this one LSB member, Russell Dale of the so-called Justice & Unity Campaign talked about how the solution to WBAI's problems is to get underwriting for the station, some big, rich person or entity that could just give us a lot of money to operate on. Dale's fellow faction operative Ray Laforest agreed and joked that we needed a “sugar daddy.” Of course this is exactly the sort of thing that WBAI and Pacifica were founded to avoid. Any big underwriter would have an influence on the radio station's programming, there's really no way around it.
But all that these faction operatives know is that they want to bring back the disastrously failed Management of the past to WBAI so that they can resume getting paid off in air time, paid positions they're not qualified to fill and occasionally a cut of the actual loot that their pal could collect.
