A Day on the Edge, Far Right Shortwave Program Log

by Brad Heavner, October 1996

Rarely do your Far Right Radio Review hosts listen to the worst of shortwave all day long. It is damaging enough to one's mental stability to check in on it at periodic intervals. But to demonstrate the collective strength of the multitude of radical reactionary right-wing radio programs now available on shortwave, we have compiled this log -- a sampling of what can be heard in a typical day.

It is easy enough for most of us to pass off the wild idea that United Nations troops are going to storm out of manholes and invade the U.S. as crazed paranoia. We can hear sporadic calls for violent action and take heart that such hysteria is not rampant everywhere. We can be disgusted at overt racism, but realize that it is a small number of people who would actually hope to see a race war.

In most spaces, this is certainly the case. The racist and violent fringe does not dominate in the town square. On U.S. domestic shortwave, however, reactionary filth is the norm. People who might not otherwise fall for the scapegoating rhetoric of the far-right are being worn down by the sheer volume of it. A constant flow of programming, one feeding off the twisted logic of another, breaking down the good sense of good people hour after hour, day after day, month after month.

It is easy enough to understand why these racist and militant organizations have turned to shortwave. AM radio networks are expensive, and often a programmer will get run out of town when a community realizes that a particular show cannot be squeezed into the broadest interpretation of their standards of decency. Shortwave radio does not reach most people's daily commutes, and often they are not even aware that the medium exists. For those who seek it out by simply buying a shortwave radio and turning it on, however, it is as real as any information source.

Since the Federal Communications Commission in the United States went through a deregulatory binge and seemingly eliminated the requirement that shortwave broadcasts be directed at a foreign audience, the capacity of U.S.-based stations to carry this type of programming has grown enormously. With this, the character of the medium itself has been transformed as well. While international broadcasting was traditionally the realm of the open-minded listener who wanted to hear transmissions direct from overseas, it is now the place to go for the inspiration to build explosives and instructions for doing so. Pick up a shortwave radio next time a gun show comes to town.

While progressive researchers and activists do have their outlets on community radio and can occasionally wrestle a positive soundbite into mainstream media, it is also essential to have a voice on shortwave. For those of us at RFPI, it is particularly exciting to be putting our programming out for a listening audience that would not otherwise hear such ideas. Many thanks to all the producers who provide us with top-quality programming. And immense gratitude goes out to all who support the Global Community Forum and the Far Right Radio Review.
