Alternative Radio is an internationally syndicated, one-hour, weekly radio program, featuring serious interviews with humanitarian and progressive thinkers. Begun in 1986, it evolved from a program that journalist David Barsamian hosted on community radio station KGNU-FM, in Boulder, Colorado. AR is currently heard on more than 200 radio stations around the world.[1] It is entirely self-funded through donations and sales of recordings of individual programs. All programs are archived; some are available for free download and the others for a $5.00 fee. CDs are also available.

Perhaps the best known of AR's programs have been Barsamian's series of interviews with dissident intellectual Noam Chomsky. Many of Barsamian's broadcast interviews have been published in book form. As of December 2009, archived program listings show about 400 individuals who have been either interviewed or were recorded lectures.[2] Notable guests who have been interviewed include:
