Date Uploaded: 2015-03-01 14:26:42.0This episode features updates on various prisoner situations, followed by recent post-punk, punk and deathrock from around the world.
Firstly, we give an update on Albert Woodfox (last living, incarcerated member of the Angola 3) who's almost reached his 43rd year (!) in solitary confinement in the state of Louisiana. In addition to this update, we feature a segment of Robert King speaking about his experience in Angola prison and an interview by Noah of The Prison Radio Show with Tory Pegram. The interview aired CKUT, Montreal on Feb 10th, 2015. Albert (aka Shaka Cinque), alongside Herman Wallace and Robert King were convicted by a white jury and based on the inconsistent testimonies of prison snitches of the murder of a white prison guard. The reality is that they were convicted because they've been organizing a chapter of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in Angola Prison.
