Article by Vic Sadot at Berkeley Calling Blog: Many veterans of Berkeley Barb activist journalism in the past 50 years will be gathering from far and wide for a reunion with their movement friends. If you don’t know the Berkeley Barb history, you can visit the About Berkeley Barb section of the website. Meanwhile here is an excerpt, and below you can check out the schedule over several days Aug 8 – 14. Country Joe McDonald invited me to do a couple songs at the private event at The Freight & Salvage on August 12 at “A 50 Year Barb celebration party with live music featuring Country Joe McDonald, Jef Jaisun, Vic Sadot, Sal Valentino & friends, plus radio pioneer Scoop Nisker and comedy celebrating free speech and the alternative press, is scheduled at the Freight & Salvage at 2020 Addison St. in Berkeley”.
