6 – Democracy Now

7 – Radio Ecoshock

8 – Nonvisual Radio

9 – The Big Picture w/ Melvin Syrie Jr.


The show’s host Melvin Syrie Jr. brings a unique and wisdom-driven perspective to the table. Born in Michigan, but now calls Texas his home, Melvin drives a tractor-trailer through the deep south. He is a Gen-X Black Panther that wants to help lift the African diaspora. The show also features guests and call-ins. Activate Radio is re-broadcasting the show on Friday nights, so if you’d like to call-in it will have to be on Monday night when the show is produced. Listen in you’ll find out how. Welcome Melvin!
