Congratulations Bob Dylan - 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature! 

Check out the brand new animated film based on an historic Bob Dylan recording from Pacifica Radio Archives!  Quoted Studios, a nonprofit dedicated to uncovering, preserving and reimagining the American interview, produces their signature series Blank on Blank in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios.

Pacifica Radio was a fixture in Bob Dylan's early career.  The legendary musician was in his early twenties - ambitious, brimming with talent and eager to experiment - and Pacifica Radio was a perfect fit for him.  Dylan graced WBAI 99.5 FM New York with his presence on numerous occasions to have some fun and share new songs and ideas with listeners.

We've compiled our Bob Dylan recordings onto one MP3 disc... reserve your copy of Bob Dylan on Pacifica Radio today!

FTV 554 We the People - Jerry Brown and Gore Vidal

This week on From the Vault we reach back to July 8th, 1996 and listen to a radio show called We the People, hosted by former and future California Governor Jerry Brown.  We The People debuted on Pacifica Radio in early 1994 and ran until 1997, when Brown retired the series to begin what was to be a successful run for Mayor of Oakland, California in 1998.

In this episode, Brown interviews playwright and political historian Gore Vidal, who is at the top of his game in 1996.  Vidal comments on the current state of media consolidation and the erosion of civil liberties as guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, with plenty of colorful historical anecdotes.
