Doug Henwood began doing Behind the News on WBAI, New York, in 1995. KPFA, 94.1 FM Berkeley, began broadcasting it in 2009. WBAI’s now-former program director, who seems more interested in hawking miracle cures than political analysis, dropped it 2010, but it lives on at KPFA (Thursdays at noon, Pacific time). Here are the archived shows.

You can get the five most recent shows by visiting the show’s iTunes page. The show is also available via Stitcher (web, iPhone, and Android).

People often ask about the theme. It’s “Wawshishijay (Our Beginning)” by Odo Addy from Pieces of Africa by the Kronos Quartet. I inherited it from WBAI’s late and much-missed program director, Samori Marksman, who gave me one night of his four-time-a-week show in 1995. After he died, I kept the theme in his memory.pciture of an old radio
