From the Vault: My Radio Documentary on ’73 Chilean Coup Re-Airs

In 2008, I co-hosted and produced a radio documentary on the September 11th, 1973 coup in Chile that toppled the democratically elected presidency of Salvador Allende. Marking the 35th anniversary, the From The Vault episode featured original content and archivial material from the Pacifica Radio Archives in North Hollywood.

My interviews with author Antonio Skarmeta and Allende’s presidential physician Dr. Jose Quiroga intertwined with the music of Inti-Illimani and the voice of Joan Jara, Hortensia Bussi de Allende and others to tell the tragic story. 

The radio documentary has been repurposed and updated in light of my PM Press title “Venceremos: Victor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement.” It’s streaming on From The Vault’s website now as it makes its way through terrestial community radio.
