Special Pacifica Radio Archives National Broadcast Marks 58th Anniversary of Bombing of Hiroshima

Live Recording of New Radio Adaptation of John Hersey's Hiroshima

Starring Tyne Daly, Ruby Dee and Roscoe Lee Brown

LOS ANGELES (July 28)— Shigeko Sasamori, a 71-year old grandmother, and survivor of Hiroshima sits in the front row of the audience, her eyes closed, tears stream down the sides of her face as she listens to legendary actress Ruby Dee narrate a new radio adaptation of John Hersey's *Hiroshima*, an account of the atomic bombing told from the perspective of six survivors.

*At exactly fifteen minutes past eight in the morning, on August 6, 1945, Japanese time, at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshima,* Dee introduces the play’s characters. *A 100,000 people were killed by the atomic bomb, and these six were among the survivors. They still wonder why they lived when so many others died.*

On Wednesday, August 6th, the 58th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima the Pacifica Radio Archives will distribute the archives new recording of John Hersey's Hiroshima to the Pacifica stations and its affiliates for broadcast on that day.

KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles 98.7 FM Santa Barbara

August 6th

2 pm - 4 pm John Hersey's Hiroshima

Hiroshima by John Hersey was adapted for radio by John Valentine and is directed by Michael Haney with music by Mark Snow. The radio play stars,Tyne Daly, Ruby Dee and Roscoe Lee Brown, Daniel Benzali, Roscoe Lee Browne, Esther K. Chae, Michael Chinyamurindi, Tony Plana, Jeanne Sakata, Chris Tashima and John Valentine. Executive produced by Robert Greenwald and Kate McArdle of Artists United.

Shigeko Sasamori, who was 13 years-old at time the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, will be a guest on Pacifica’s flagship show, Democracy Now! interviewed by award-winning journalist Amy Goodman on August 6th (also available on Free Speech TV channel 9415 DISH Network satellite TV). Sasamori is one of the 25 Hiroshima maidens brought to the US for plastic surgery by acclaimed author Norman Cousins.

*The brilliant classic by John Hersey has never been more relevant, it manages to go beyond the surface to probe, explore and have us feel the humanity of those who are the object of war,* said John Hersey's Hiroshima Executive Producer, Robert Greenwald. *Using a multi ethnic cast, this play creates a powerful statement to reach and remind all of us about the power of war and its effect on lives..*

*The Pacifica Radio Archives has collected over 70 programs related to the bombing of Hiroshima,* said Brian DeShazor, Archives Director. *From a Debate between Edward Teller and LInus Pauling to the rare voices of the survivors.* Selected excerpts from the archives Hiroshima collection will also be broadcast on the Pacifica stations and many of the affiliates (details below).
