Noam Chomsky on Democracy Now! ; you’ll only hear him on the radio in Baton Rouge on 96.9FM

Tired of the spectrum of opinion on your radio being between Rush Limbaugh and Walton & Johnson? So are we. We’re Baton Rouge Community Radio.

On Tuesday and Wednesday April 4th and 5th, Democracy Now! interviewed Dr. Noam Chomsky, world-renowned political commentator and linguist. You can hear DN! on WHYR-LP, 96.9FM Baton Rouge Community Radio twice a day, 7:00-8:00am and 4:00-5:00pm, Monday through Friday. WHYR is the only place on the radio in Baton Rouge to hear Democracy Now! – one of the few outlets that covers dissidents like Noam Chomsky – and much more syndicated news, opinion, and commentary unavailable anywhere else on your radio dial in Louisiana’s capital city.
