Radio Civil Liberties

Radio Civil Liberties, the New York Civil Liberties Union’s weekly radio show, can be heard live every Friday at 1 p.m. on WBBF AM 1120 in Buffalo. Full shows and individual interviews are also available anytime by visiting

Radio Civil Liberties has been on the air since 2004. Over the years, the weekly show has featured guests as varied as Chuck D., Cindy Sheehan, Daniel Ellsberg and Howard Zinn. A mix of reporting about New York and national issues, the show explores topics such as voting rights, free speech, the separation between church and state, military recruiting efforts in public schools and whatever else is generating headlines.

“We want to empower our listeners so that they can be the force of change that will enable our state and nation to live up to its promise of liberty and justice for all,” said John Curr, the show’s host and producer as well as the director of the NYCLU’s Western Regional Office.
