January 1, 2012
Hi Everybody,

Happy New Year! The fireworks are exploding outside my window here in Amsterdam and I’m putting the finishing touches on the relaunch of the Radio Free Amsterdam website today.

Radio Free Amsterdam was founded on January 1, 2005 and is beginning its 8th year of operation as a project of The John Sinclair Foundation. We specialize in music and recordings from the African American cultural tradition.

You may now subscribe to the daily podcasts from Radio FreeAmsterdam via the RSS feature on our website. There is no cost for any of our programming but you are encouraged to donate to The John Sinclair Foundation, a Dutch non-profit cultural organization based at Singel 10-saus, 1013GA Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Due to severe technical problems, since late February 2011 our internet radio programming has been carried by Detroit Life Radio at the Trans-Love Energies Compassion Center in Detroit and broadcast nightly by while our site was inoperable. The broadcasts will also continue nightly in 2012.

Now our daily programming will be coming directly from Radio Free Amsterdam, with a series of one-hour radio programs by John Sinclair, Tom Morgan, David Kunian, Harry Duncan, Bruce Pingree, Cary Wolfson, Scott Barretta, and other independent producers who contribute their programs to the Radio Free Amsterdam archive.

In addition to our daily postings, we have added a series of John Sinclair Radio Shows from the past year that have not yet aired on RadioFree Amsterdam and a new series from the Vintage Radio Vaults produced by David Kunian at WWOZ in New Orleans.
