THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED: Because it’ll be on the radio. First in Playbook, Charles and Inez Barron, who each served in the City Council and the Assembly, will co-host a new show.

The call-in show “Speaking Truth to Power” will air live at 5 p.m. every Friday on progressive talk radio station WBAI starting next week.

In a statement, the married couple promised to “shed light on a much-needed Black radical/revolutionary perspective on important political issues.”

The socialist duo ran politics in East New York for two decades, but Inez was term-limited out, and Charles lost his reelection bid last year — but shared his unique, eminently quotable perspective in an exit interview with Playbook.
