Holler to the Hood, a Project of Appalshop, Produces Radio Program for Incarcerated on December 20th
12/20/2004 5:00 PM - 12/20/2004 8:00 PM
Dear friends:

We write today to tell you about a unique opportunity to reach out to loved ones who are spending this holiday season incarcerated.

This coming Monday, Dec. 20th, a special radio program will air on radio stations across the United States. The radio program will allow people who have friends or relatives in prison to call a toll-free line and send a message to those who are incarcerated. The message might be in the form of a poem, a song, a blessing or other spoken word.

The program will air 7 to 10 p.m. Eastern time; 6 to 9 p.m. Central, 5 to 8 p.m. Rocky Mountain and 4 to 7 p.m. West Coast. The toll-free number to call is 1-888-396-1208.

This program is being produced by Holler to the Hood, a project of Appalshop, a non-profit media arts center located in the coalfields of central Appalachia. Appalshop operates a community radio station that broadcasts to eastern Kentucky, southwest Virginia and parts of West Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. Holler to the Hood is working through the Pacifica Radio Network to try to get Monday’s program aired in cities and towns all over the United States.

For more information about the program – and to listen to it live on Monday, please visit this link:

Meanwhile, on behalf of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season!
