Keep Radio Radio Free Eireann on Air

Sandy Boyer with a a plug for Radio Free Eireann, a New York based radio station which has been a valuable site of information and a bastion of anti censorship. For years it has helped keep the Irish American community informed of the facts on the ground in the North. Many of the interviews its presenters have conducted have featured on The Pensive Quill courtesy of the efforts of our transcriber who endeavours to ensure that the important work of Radio Free Eireann reaches a wider audience.

Radio Free Eireann will be on the air tomorrow, Saturday May 11, from 1-3 pm New York time on WBAI 99.5 FM or We will be asking people to donate to keep WBAI and Radio Free Eireann on the air.

We will be interviewing Gerry McGeough whose appeal was denied this week and Gerry Conlon of the Guildford 4 who will  describe the case of the Craigavon 2, Brendan McConville and John Paul Wooten, who are appealing their life sentence for the killing of a member of the British security

We will also be playing excerpts from our Irish Wake for Thatcher including parts of the presentations by Fr. Pat Moloney and Randy Credico. We will be offering a dvd of the complete Irish Wake for Thatcher as a thank you gift for those who can contribute $75 or more.
