12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: U.S. Knew About UK Plans to Detain Journalist's Partner From "Free Speech Radio News": "Officials in the UK and Brazil are demanding answers after British police detained journalist Glen Greenwald's partner at Heathrow Airport yesterday, under the provision of an anti-terrorism law. David Miranda was traveling from Germany back home to Brazil after meeting with Greenwald's colleague, Laura Poitras. Greenwald and Poitras are most recently known for coverage of massive US and UK spying after intelligence contractor Edward Snowden provided them with thousands of secret documents from the National Security Agency. After numerous questions on the topic were lobbed at U.S. Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest today, he acknowledged that U.S. authorities were aware of the UK plan to stop Miranda. “There was a heads up that was provided by the British government. So again, this is something we had an indication was likely to occur. But it's not something that we requested, and it's something that was done specifically by the British law enforcement officials there.” Schedule 7 of the UK's Terrorism Act grants police broad powers to search and detain individuals for no more than nine hours. All of Miranda's electronics were confiscated and he was released, after eight hours and 55 minutes.

There will also be interviews with applicants for LPFM stations, from CHIRP in Chicago. The show will also feature historic interviews and audio clips about how a few thousand pirate radio stations, other activism, Washington lobbying, and court fights, got the low-power FM laws in place.
