Radio Unnameable
Abstract
Phone calls, Flo Kennedy on phone
1976: A caller reads his poems. Flo Kennedy calls. Bob plays an ad for "Spare Change Day," WBAI's April 10th penny campaign on the streets of New York, which seems to have already occurred. They are now planning a nickel and dime campaign. Kennedy reads a calendar of political events. A caller is astonished that no one has mentioned the federal prison authority's decision on writings. Nobody knows what he is talking about, including the caller. Bob and Flo become angered at his astonishment despite his own ignorance. They take other calls. One caller wants to set the record straight about his previous use of the word "they." They tell him that racial code words exist in society and he must be aware of them. Talk of hypocrisy of the FCC
