2007 PRODOS interview on Triple J radio show, Restoring the Balance

From the archives:

On Sunday (April 02 2007) I was interviewed on the Triple J radio show, “Restoring the Balance“.

Click here to listen JUST to the interview with PRODOS

Triple J is an Australian government-owned – i.e.taxpayer funded – national radio network which is part of the ABC.

It’s main focus is new music. It’s broadcast nationally and its signal can reach 95% of Australians. The show, Restoring the Balance, is supposed to be a send-up of the Conservative Right. The show’s humorous intro begins like this:

Thanks to the intervention of the ABC board, Triple J reluctantly presents two hours of unbiased, fair and balanced coverage of the week’s topical issues

The main presenter, “Sterling Addison” (not his real name) – who pretends to be a supporter of conservative, old-world, Liberal Party type ideals – and his faithful side-kick, “Spencer” – who pretends to be from the “Christian values” based Family First party – are very funny mock jocks.

Sterling presents himself asa proud,rich, privileged, lazy, narrow-minded, bigoted, pompous, “right wing” (whatever that means) conservative ass. Spencer portrays a righteous Bible-basher. Their interview with me centered on talking about International Capitalism Day.

The show opened with a short excerpt from my song “Privatize The ABC” (my lyrics, but the melody is based loosely on Irving Berlin’s song, Alexander’s Ragtime Band).

Because Spencer claimed that the Bible and Capitalism go hand-in-hand, I mentioned in the show that my studies of Christianity indicate that Christianity and Capitalism do seem to be compatible.

However, Islam and Capitalism are not compatible.

Why? Because Islam is thoroughly riddled with advocating violence and rejects any separation of Mosque and State. Click here for more information
