Wednesday on WAIF
This afternoon, Donald Shabazz, Chairman of the WAIF Board of Trustees, was subbing on WAIF. Some of his comments were quite noteworthy, especially given the purposes of our web page here.

Shabazz said that WAIF was not controlled by the Board, but by the station's members -- and that the will of the members is enacted by the Board.


I have a few questions, then.

I was a member when Derrick Blassingame's show was taken off the air. I was not contacted.

Was that the will of the members? It was not my will.

How does the board know the members' will?

Why hasn't the member list been made public? Can I contact the members and ask them myself?

Just a few questions. I'm sure Shabazz and Co. will never answer.
