The day ahead at WGXC: Programming notes

6 a.m. to 9 a.m.: WGXC Morning Show: Liv Carrow Following "Democracy Now!" (at 8 a.m.) and local news headlines (at 9 a.m.) Hudson singer Liv Carrow is on the air singing and talking with host Philip Grant.
10 a.m.: Tell It Like It Is: John Amidon and Megan Rice John Amidon, anti-nuclear activist and chapter head of the Capital Region Veterans for Peace will be in studio, joined on the phone by sister Megan Rice. Sister Megan Rice, 82, is a Roman Catholic nun of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, and two male accomplices carried out what nuclear experts call the biggest security breach in the history of the nation’s atomic complex, making their way to the inner sanctum of the the Oak Ridge nuclear reservation where the United States keeps crucial nuclear bomb parts and fuel. With flashlights and bolt cutters, the three pacifists defied barbed wire as well as armed guards, video cameras and motion sensors to penetrate the facility, early on July 28. They splashed blood on the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility — a new windowless, half-billion-dollar plant encircled by enormous guard towers — and hung banners outside its walls. “Swords into plowshares,” read one, quoting the Book of Isaiah. “Spears into pruning hooks.” The plant holds the nation’s main supply of highly enriched uranium, enough for thousands of nuclear weapons. Sister Rice spent 6 months in a federal prison Tune in to find out why and more. Hosted by Christina Malisoff.
