Support Public Radio – KPFA

Posted on Feb 3, 2015

Public Radio needs your support more than ever.  KPFA is dependent on the public’s financial support to stay alive.  KPFA is part of the Pacifica Broadcasting Network which has a unique funding structure.  Unlike PBS who takes corporate underwriting to fund their programming and staff, KPFA is solely dependent on public support for the majority of it’s funding.  Due to a network wide snafu with the Corporation of Public Broadcasting which has withheld monies designated for the network, KPFA is in peril of further cuts to paid staff.  KPFA is currently trying to cut down the number of days in their Winter fund drive.  My paid position as Music Director was recently eliminated due to KPFA’s current financial plight which has affected the Music Department.  However, I continue to host and produce my weekly program “Con Sabor” as well as serve as Executive Producer for “Ritmo” (formerly Ritmo De Las Americas) on Saturday evenings.  A lot of listeners are dependent on the alternative music, news, public affairs and cultural radio programs that KPFA offers.  So I am asking for your support to keep KPFA alive and well in spite of these difficult times.  Please visit and pledge your support today.  I will be broadcasting a special fund drive edition of “Ritmo” and “Con Sabor” this coming Saturday evening, Feb. 7th from 7 to 11 pm.  Please consider supporting those programs as well as the eclectic music programs that you can only listen to on 94.1 FM and   Vaya!!
