Feb. 7 Is International Clash Day, and 105.9FM The Radiator is Celebrating with YOU at the Mic!
February 7, 2018 is International Clash Day — a holiday that's anti-racist, anti-fear. A holiday that's pro-solidarity, pro-unity, pro-inclusion. All day long, all across the globe, we're celebrating music as a tool for social consciousness, and a band that made it sound so good. On February 7, play some Clash and think hard about your own community — about how it could do better to include more people and continue the work of tearing down the barriers between us. Join Big Heavy World and 105.9FM the Radiator in celebrating International Clash Day — We're opening up the mic on Feb. 7 to anyone who wants to bring pro-inclusion messages, conversations about racism, or music that unifies us to the airwaves of 105.9FM The Radiator during International Clash Day, a worldwide pro-inclusion holiday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved. You don't have to be a DJ; we'll make it fun (and you'll come out of it with DJ skills if you didn't have them already). Learn more about ICD at http://internationalclashday.com. Big Heavy World and The Radiator are located inside the SEABA Center at 404 Pine Street in Burlington, between Arts Riot and Speeder & Earl's. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
"In fact, punk rock means exemplary manners to your fellow human being." — Joe Strummer
International Clash Day (ICD) is not about our radio station or even simply celebrating The Clash’s music itself. ICD is about the band's message, which was anti-hate, anti-fear, and pro-multi-culturalism, unity, and tolerance, and how that resonates to listeners and fans to this day.
"The way you get a better world is, you don’t put up with substandard anything." – Joe Strummer, Rude International (March 1999) with Earl Chalmers
This upcoming year will be the 7th annual International Clash Day. It’s our belief that the enduring power of the Clash and Joe Strummer’s music can be tied directly to the strength of the messages in that music. Again and again, Strummer and The Clash used music to bring awareness to important issues, and highlight the ways that music can bring people together to affect positive change. International Clash Day is about more than just celebrating an awesome band. It’s about celebrating the power of music.
