American Dissident Voices program was the weekly voice of the National Alliance since 1991, at first being broadcast on a small network of AM / FM radio stations across the country as well as a station broadcasting on worldwide shortwave radio. At one time there were up to a dozen and a half stations broadcasting the program; some of them with quite powerful broadcast ranges sweeping across many states.
Stations willing to broadcast the program dwindled in the mid to late 1990’s, in tandem with the advent of the internet where the program found its newest and principle home. Eventually this became the sole source for the program.
Hosts for the weekly program over the years included, the programs founder Kevin Strom, National Alliance founder Dr. William Pierce as well as former Chairman Shaun Walker and since then Erich Gliebe.
As of October 2012, the once weekly schedule became unstable, being broadcast only once or twice in the final two months of the year.
With the current year of 2013, the program has not appeared whatsoever with the exception of a short, rambling, incoherent and conflicting message which incensed many, as it was put out on March 9, Commander George Lincoln Rockwell’s birthday with a decidedly sarcastic tone.
This website has been monitoring the ADV schedule of non-appearance and we announce at this point we will cease bothering doing so for the following reason. Word has reached us that Mr. Gliebe has cancelled the program, after 22 years of consistent service.
Granted that in recent years listeners have been rapidly diminishing due to the fact that Mr. Gliebe has been a lackluster host with his monotone voice and uninspiring reading from the script delivery style and messages that offer nothing in-depth or show evidence of deep thinking or research.
And the reason given for this cancellation? Mr. Gliebe says he is not getting PAID!
Can you imagine that? Well, many of us have done lots things on a consistent basis over the years for Our Cause and never expected any pay.
And in any event, even if it were true that Mr. Gliebe was no longer able to collect an Alliance salary due to dwindling support, he still has his regular full-time outside job since 2009 (as he apparently must have to maintain himself as a suburban Cleveland area homeowner since he refuses to live and work inexpensively from the national office) and that puts him in a position no different from anyone else in doing their work for the cause. Members are expected to volunteer their services, even pay for their own expenses, but Mr. Gliebe must be paid for his it appears.
In any event, we here cease with our monthly tally (of mostly zeros anyhow) unless we see evidence of some revival. No American Dissident Voices program, no National Vanguard magazine. Heaven forbid if you say anything pro-National Socialist. Is this perhaps Mr. Gliebe’s “new direction” he spoke of?
If so, it is the Board of Directors who are squarely responsible and therefore receive the blame for this shameful state of affairs. Dozens of good, solid members have written to both of them with their concerns only to be snubbed; every single one, ignored.
For the sake of the future and generations to come, for the sake of the memory of Dr. William Pierce, how can you two people live with yourselves?
