Gorilla Radio CFUV FundingDrive 2020 with Chris Cook, Joe Emersberger March 19, 2020

This Week on GR

by C. L. Cook -

March 19, 2020

Welcome to the strangest of the one thousand and fifty-eight Gorilla Radio episodes I’ve presented here at CFUV over the last 21 years.

This was to be my contribution to the 2020 FundingDrive show, but that, like so much else around us was not meant to be. The microbe that stopped the World has stopped us too, for now.

But, and it’s an enormous but, we will continue to produce radio, just not for the next while in the way we’ve done so for so long. That means, firstly; no more live broadcasting.

Virtually all of my shows have been done live from the basement of the SUB. There’s no replacing the energy of live performance, but we’ll try to bring the same urgency and vibrancy to our programming we always have.

Listen. Hear.

For today however, I’ll bring in some music, and some segments of interviews past, and perhaps a little blatherskiting. And, I’ll remind; though the FundingDrive has hit a major roadblock, you can still express your support for the station and the show financially online at:

Sunny Days: Getting Past Pandemics

Coronavirus and the Sun: a Lesson from the 1918 Influenza Pandemic

by Richard Hobday - Aletho News

March 10, 2020

Fresh air, sunlight and improvised face masks seemed to work a century ago; and they might help us now.

When new, virulent diseases emerge, such SARS and Covid-19, the race begins to find new vaccines and treatments for those affected. As the current crisis unfolds, governments are enforcing quarantine and isolation, and public gatherings are being discouraged. Health officials took the same approach 100 years ago, when influenza was spreading around the world. The results were mixed. But records from the 1918 pandemic suggest one technique for dealing with influenza — little-known today — was effective. Some hard-won experience from the greatest pandemic in recorded history could help us in the weeks and months ahead.

"Journalists" Preparing the Public Mind for the Next Regime Change Challenge

International Media Uses Fake Journalist To Spread Disinformation About Nicaragua

by Nora Mitchell/Nan McCurdy -

March 14, 2020

On Feb. 20, 2020, published a piece entitled “Burnt radio stations and 18-month newsprint blockades: Inside the slow culling of Nicaragua’s free press” that has multiple problems. The first of the many problems with this propaganda piece is that one of its authors – Carl David Goette Luciak – who initially came to Nicaragua to support anti-canal activists, was a close friend of the leaders of the violent opposition who were funded and directed by the US to attempt regime change.

Goette Luciak can be seen in multiple photos with the opposition and with their armed lackeys; one of the photos was used for the cover of the book about the attempted coup, Nicaragua 2018: Uprising or Coup? He is also captured on video taking photos of an old man being tortured by the opposition in the documentary March of the Flowers. He appears at second 13 in the video from the Flowers March which took place in Managua on June 30, 2018.

Security State of America Classifies Coronavirus Intel

US Intel Agencies Played Unsettling Role in Classified and “9/11-like” Coronavirus Response Plan

by Whitney Webb  - MintPress News

March 13, 2020

As coronavirus panic grips the world, concern over government overreach is growing given the involvement of US intelligence agencies in classified meetings for planning the U.S.’ coronavirus response.

As the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis comes to dominate headlines, little media attention has been given to the federal government’s decision to classify top-level meetings on domestic coronavirus response and lean heavily “behind the scenes” on U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon in planning for an allegedly imminent explosion of cases.
