USA:
Radio station focuses on Freemuse CD and music censorship


The Freemuse CD ‘Listen to the banned’ and discussions on the power of music and music censorship was in focus at a one hour live broadcast from Wisconsin’s Public Radio on 10 November 2010.

Artist and human rights activist Deeyah and Freemuse programme manager Ole Reitov who produced the CD for Freemuse, joined senior host and author Jean Feraca on ‘Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders’ – a one-hour live weekday global cultural affairs programme with a focus on the future.

In the programme Deeyah told about her experiences of being attacked for singing, and Ole Reitov told about several of the musicians featured on the CD and global music censorship. In the programme, music censorship in the US was also discussed.
