History: Pacifica
Pacifica was founded in 1949 by Lewis Hill and a group of Pacifist/Anarchists. Hill realized that commercial media, which existed to deliver mass audiences to sponsors, could never engage in the free and open flow of information necessary to promote justice and peace through understanding, nor give artists a place to exercise their creativity without boundaries. Voluntary listener-sponsorship, he believed, was the key. And Pacifica Radio was born. Today, we struggle to preserve that tradition both from attacks from the outside,and now, from the organization's so-called leaders. This section contains writings on the heritage we seek to reclaim.
