Radical show Under the Pavement is an explosive new programme which broadcasts every four weeks on Manchester's ALL FM 96.9 community radio station. This serves Ardwick,
Longsight, Levenshulme and beyond. The show, which takes its name from the 1968 situationist slogan 'under the paving stones, the beach', reports on Manchester's radical
and activist communities. It goes out on Tuesdays from 10pm until midnight.
The show has been broadcasting every four weeks since July, and it's already had a diverse range of guests. These have included Gee Vaucher from Crass, a local activist
from the Stop Esso campaign and a member of the Greater Manchester Coalition Against Sanctions and War on Iraq. As well as talk, it plays a wide range of music, including
folk, country, electronic and indie. It also broadcasts poetry and the spoken word. It's not all hardcore anarchist punk but, as Emma Goldman once said, "if I can't dance,
I don't want to be in your revolution".
The next show will be broadcast on 22nd October and it will feature Alice and Boff from Chumbawamaba, fresh from their European tour and appearance at London's Anarchist
Bookfair, playing a selection of songs that have influenced them.
Manchester has a rich heritage of radical and progressive activity. The show's producers say that Under the Pavement is a way of giving voice to this culture of resistance.
They've already made links with a variety of local groups and campaigns. News is provided by the Loombreaker, the city's monthly direct action free sheet, while the
Networking Newsletter Project provides a what's-on guide.
Community radio stations, also known as access radio, are not-for-profit, low power neighbourhood stations that exist to provide a platform for communities' own talents and
aspirations. ALL FM 96.9 has a licence to broadcast for a year as part of an experiment which aims to explore how access radio works in practice. "It's hoped that such
stations will act as 'social cement' in areas where informal social networks have been eroded - a catalyst for regeneration", a representative of the station says.

Remaining shows this year are on 22nd October, 19th November and 7th December, from 10pm to midnight on ALL FM 96.9 (broadcast on 96.6 FM).
