⚑ WHAT? The Unwelcome Guests Collective is a group of broadcasters who produce a fortnightly, FCC-ready public domain 2 hour talk radio show on a range of topics. We aim to provoke and stimulate the listener, showing that a radically different world is not only possible, but is in fact the only feasible choice.
⚑ WHEN? The first episode of Unwelcome Guests was broadcast on 10th March 2000. New episodes are produced every Saturday.
⚑ WHO? The collective was started by Lyn Gerry and some friends from the A-Infos project in early 2000. Various radio stations, both commercial and non-commercial broadcast the show. Lyn Gerry was the main host until 2010, when Robin Upton took over.
⚑ HOW? We combine material from a range of public domain sources using audio editing software to produce 2 hour long files per fortnight, which are posted to this website, http://UnwelcomeGuests.net, and to .
⚑ WHY? Commercial media is either unable or unwilling to expose the pernicious effects of money, governments, corporations and power hierarchy. As an entirely volunteer-based effort, working for love, not money, we have the independence to speak the truth as we see it.
