How did you get here? How did you unlock this secret area? This oasis of rhythm and melody in the midst of a level you’ve replayed too many times to count? Are you the partiest of animals, perpetually lit until the last call of every school night? Are you the artist too impassioned by love of the craft to sleep? Or the rarified being who sifts through endless hours of radio waves for hidden treasure with a fine toothed comb? Are you totally inexplicable, and here solely by random chance and happenstance? Are you normal but destined for the supernatural? No matter how you found us, you did it. You’re here! And this moment is special. Let it enjoy you as you enjoy it. Type in this cheat code and bask in 8 bit wonder as a chest appears, wedged deep in the corner of your own personal life’s underworld. Let the yellow light within spill out over you as you reach in a trembling paw to retrieve these unimaginable treats.

Noah Page, hosts these utterly improbable broadcasts. A rotating cast of MCs come through every week to freestyle or let glimmer the written verses they’ve polished up privately, meticulously in their hidden lairs. The unfathomable wild beasts of our own beautiful city, from right around that next corner, orange in the streetlights, lumbering toward you, unstoppable as a your high school crush. And PLUS interviews the likes of which you won’t find scrolling past your life on that phone. And all in the name of Secret Bonus Level’s mission to introduce rap to new audiences while championing inclusion and respect for peoples of all genders, races, sexual orientations, religions, heights, weights, and astrological signs (even though astrology is totally made up and fake SORRY NOT SORRY). Grade AA eggs. Beats and refrains to not just soothe, but upgrade your stats. You’ve leveled up.

It’s impossible to say how you found yourself in this unlikely place at this unlikely time, but where else would you find a secret show like this? And now it’s yours. We’re all so happy to give it to you. These are your friends. Play through Noah Page’s brief tutorial and suddenly you’re Player 1, the unlockable character that no one even knew was programmed into this game of your life. Music is your MP. This single potion fills your meter fully.

First Voices Radio, hosted by Tiokasin Ghosthorse: Thursdays at 9:00am

First Voices Radio brings to the airwaves the experiences, perspectives and struggles of Indigenous people who have been almost totally excluded from both mainstream and progressive, alternative media. Our purpose is to help ensure the continuance and survival of Indigenous cultures and Nations by letting the People tell their own story, in their own words, and often in their own languages and ways of speaking. And with as little outside interference and interruption as possible.

As we open up the airwaves week after week to the voices seldom heard in the last 518 years, it is our hope that the newcomers to this Land – that is, every immigrant group – will begin to question their assumptions about Indigenous people here. We hope they become educated and informed, get activated, break down their romanticization, break free of their stereotypes, and begin to form real relationships with Indigenous communities based, finally, on respect and real understanding.

This one hour is devoted to bringing the voices of the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island (i.e., North America) and connecting their struggles with those of other Indigenous Peoples around the world. And while never forgetting that standing upon Mother Earth is a great responsibility.

We ask our guests with great respect to do the honor of coming on the program to offer their knowledge, wisdom, and experience, a knowledge that has been handed down over hundreds of thousands of years. It is a responsibility we take very seriously, and we know it is with great urgency that we ask these voices to be shared in these times of change. We offer our listeners a perspective they have been missing for far too long – the First Voices of the Indigenous peoples – the “voice” America has tried to silence.

Tiokasin knows that First Voices Radio belongs to all the Native or Indigenous peoples throughout Mother Earth. The responsibilities that can be taught by listening to the real land owners (so to speak) and understanding the knowledge, the wisdom, the struggles, and the unheard voices.

It is said, “if the lies continue about Native peoples it will create an illusion, all Americans will dearly pay for in the future…and the future is now”. What kind of world are Americans creating with their privilege of denying Native people’s voice and the reality of truth Natives experience daily.

Tiokasin’s brings his global perspective experience of living with and understanding these two worlds – Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Indigenous knowledge empowers through inclusion, by teaching responsibility of choices and contributing to an emerging world affecting Mother Earth.

We as humans often revolutionize [regurgitate] the same history, by the same system and by the same people who bring destruction to Mother Earth. Many people who continue to support systems of warmongering are not only destroying their own ability to live with Mother Earth, but also only think of wars as political, religious or racial hatred. First Voices Indigenous Radio since 1992 has been bringing the voices of Indigenous peoples defending Mother Earth. We have always understood the bigger war is the war against Mother Earth.

This Way Out, hosted by Greg Gordon: Wednesday at 9:30 AM

“This Way Out” is the award-winning internationally distributed weekly LGBT radio program, currently airing on over 200 local community radio stations around the world. The half-hour “magazine”-style program is produced in Los Angeles and distributed to stations via two free-access Web sites, www.radio4all.net and www.indymedia.org, as well as through Pacifica Radio’s Audioport and KU satellite, and via satellite in Australia on the Community Radio Network. The show is additionally postal-mailed on CD to stations that have no online access, and to individual subscribers. You can also hear “This Way Out” via direct satellite to home and cable outlets across Europe, and in Europe, the Middle East/Africa and Asia/Pacific on the London-based World Radio Network, or “tune in” via our free podcasts.

Despite the limitations of a “tattered shoestring budget”, “This Way Out” programming has been honored with multiple awards from the U.S. National Federation Of Community Broadcasters and the Radio and Television News Association, by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), Parents, Families and Friends Of Lesbians and Gays (P-FLAG), the Los Angeles chapter of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), and internationally by Tupilak (the organization of lesbian and gay cultural workers in the Nordic area).

We’ve been on the air since April 1988! Summaries of recent programs are available, and if you like what you see, you can order a CD copy of any past show. You can also subscribe to get CDs of all our future shows as they’re produced, and for less than the cost of an average newspaper subscription (to cover our duplication and mailing expenses).

“This Way Out” leads off each week with “NewsWrap”, a summary of some of the major news events in or affecting sexual minority communities, compiled from a variety of media outlets around the world. If you see a local news story that you think deserves coverage, please copy/paste the text into the body of an email message, including the name of the media source and the date, and send it to us! Thanks!

In addition to NewsWrap, each edition of the program consists of several other segments, which can include interviews with authors & performers, news feature stories, humor, poetry, readings from gay/lesbian literature, and more!

“This Way Out” is also punctuated with a wide variety of music, especially self-produced recordings by openly lesbian/gay performers (which rarely receive commercial radio airplay).

“The Rainbow Minute,” produced by Judd Proctor and Brian Burns at WRIR, is a recurring featured segment on “This Way Out.”
