Wake for Saturday, 8/15/20 Planned.
Lorenzo Milam- A Wake for an Inspiring Rapscallion!
Please save the date:
Sat, August 15th, 4 p.m. Pacific Time til the wee hours
We will hold an online wake to memorialize community radio legend Lorenzo Milam. Lorenzo passed away at the age of 86 on July 19th in Pueblo Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. Lorenzo was a leader in community radio, disability rights, publishing, and half a dozen other pursuits. There are many radio stations still broadcasting today which he helped to launch either directly or through the guidance of his writings.
We will be using Zoom for the event, and (since Lorenzo was a radio guy, and a bunch of people attending are radio people) you are welcome to take the audio from that and project it through the aether even beyond the videoconference. Use your imaginations!
There will be an open time for everyone to share their memories. If you have something particular you would like to have a few scheduled minutes for on the program, drop us a line.
Lorenzo touched a giant heap of people’s lives. A lot of people will probably want to share something. For the open period, please pick one story to tell, and try to keep it to 87 seconds— one second for every year of his life. We will not be time-fascists about it… but please be considerate to the many people who will likely have something to share, and won’t get to be heard if we have too many ramblers in our midst. If you’d like to share a longer story in writing, you can send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can compile them together to share.
