The program featured plentiful appeals for listener donations.

Host Michael Welch was assisted in these appeals by Iraq War Resister and author Joshua Key, political activist and writer Roger Annis, and local media personality Dave Mcleod.

The program also featured music by Phil Ochs (Cops of the World), Talking Heads (Crosseyed and Painless), and Chumbawumba (Bella Ciao!)
