DELHI, India– I’ve never asked for money and I’m not gonna now. Rather this is about my occasional employer, Free Speech Radio News. http://fsrn.org

They’re the ones that gave me my first shot at international reporting from Georgia and for that I’ll be forever grateful.

Now it seems they’re about to go belly-up. So as they’re teetering toward insolvency, I thought I’d lend ’em a hand and blast out their appeal.

Those in Northern California hear their half-hour broadcast on weekday afternoons on KPFA; in New York it’s WBAI. They’re on more than 80 stations from what I understand and do some good work.

As they’re one of my primary sources of income abroad, I’ve taken a somewhat self interested interest in their ability to keep treading water. But it’s bad. They’ve cut our rates and suspended payments until at least next month. But they’re a worker-owned collective, not a private company so I’ll take them at their word that they’ll pay as soon as they can.

So here’s where you click…

Thank you and gawd bless.
