On top of the highest hill in San Francisco is the Mount Davidson Cross -- a monument to the Armenian Genocide. Friday, April 24th marks 100 years since the Ottoman Empire began to kill what would eventually be 1.5 million Armenians. Waves of Armenians immigrated to the Bay Area, fleeing the killing. Today, 30,000 people of Armenian descent live here. 

On this week's Alternative Radio, David Barsamian celebrates the 30 year relationship between AR and Noam Chomsky, acclaimed linguist and foremost critic of American foreign policy. 

On the program, Chomsky offers his critique of the current U.S. intervention in the Middle East in a talk entitled "ISIS, the Kurds & Turkey."  Monday at 1pm.
