Speeches by Dalai Lama, Aristide to be broadcast live on KZSU-FM

STANFORD -- KZSU-FM, the student-run radio station at Stanford University, will broadcast live the April 19 speech by Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama.

The address in Stanford's Memorial Church is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. KZSU is located at 90.1 on the FM dial.

The Dalai Lama will be introduced on the radio program by a member of the student group Friends of Tibet, said Ali Salomon, KZSU news director.

In addition, the radio station will broadcast live the Monday, April 18, speech to the Stanford community by Jean- Bertrand Aristide, exiled president of Haiti. The speech is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

Aristide is expected to comment on his ouster from power and give his thoughts on the current American policy toward Haiti. He also will take questions from audience members, if time permits.

Because of the live coverage, KZSU's regular coverage of the Palo Alto City Council meeting will be delayed until after the speech Monday, Salomon said.
