Interview with Sasha Tycko, University of Chicago alumna, former Program Director at WHPK-Chicago and current DJ at the historic student run radio station in Hyde Park on the campus of the University of Chicago, about their campaign to reestablish student control of programing at the station.

They are contesting new operating restrictions imposed by the University that in effect censor student and community broadcasting.

She explains the course of events and the directives that forced temporary station shut downs and then the resignation of many long time community DJs whose contribution to the station she explains.

The students object to administrator bullying and the imposition of policy that undercuts their agency and impoverishes the rich cultural opportunity that WHPK provided the student DJs and community for the past 30 years.

She explains their demands: resumption of 24 hour programing, a reconvened governing board and greater autonomy and agency in their ability to broadcast freely.
