Conventional Wisdom: The talk on the street, literally.
September 01, 2004


Far removed from Madison Square Garden, on 10th Street, in the heart of the East Village, sat a conspicuous, vintage travel trailer emanating sounds of the counter convention.

Inside was none other than Liberty's Sabrina Artel, who, on Friday, pulled the jacks off her WJFF radio spot "Trailer Talk" and transplanted it to an illegal parking spot across from the famously progressive St. Mark's Episcopal Church. There, for the first few days of the convention, she interviewed all manner of activists, dissidents and regular neighborhood folk fed up with the Bush administration. A pair of outdoor speakers broadcast the interviews going on inside, piquing the interest of the bohemian community.

It's something she has done often. In a kind of nomadic homage to the American road trip, Artel has taken her mobile talk show everywhere from the Barryville harvest festival to the New Hampshire primary, and interviewed everyone from local officials to Cameron Kerry, the Democratic candidate's brother.

In her coverage of the convention protests, she interviewed dozens of activists and even got a few minutes with the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

"It's been really amazing," said Artel, who's trained as a dancer and performer. "It's been interesting to see how much opposition there is to this administration and that it's coming from so many different sources."

"Trailer Talk" airs in the Hudson Valley as part of the program "Making Waves" on WJFF, 90.5 FM.
