Abstract: Asia Pacific Forum (APF), founded by a collective of journalists and political activists, is a weekly pan-Asian radio show based in New York City that began in broadcasting 1998 on 99.5 WBAI, a non-commercial and listener-sponsored radio station. The program covers stories from Asia and on Asian American communities and individuals, focusing on culture and politics. Its records document approximately 500 of APF's on-air shows between 1998-2009, in scripts, research notes, electronic records of e-mail messages posted to the APF's internal listserv and public e-mail list, audio cassette tapes, reel-to-reel audio tapes, compact discs, mini-discs, VHS tapes and DVDs. Among the audio recordings are airchecks for some of the shows, as well as full-length unedited recorded interviews with notable Asian Americans. An archived link to APF's website provides a connection to complete APF broadcasts from August 2006 forward.
