The good thing about saturation coverage on KPFA of the Democrat-Republican convention (2 weeks of the same thing) is that I do not have to listen to KPFA for 2 weeks and can listen to classical music on a different station as classical music is always better than KPFA except the one classical music program on KPFA, Sundays 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Usually, I listen to Democracy Now as I walk to work at 9 a.m., at least the headlines as the interviews are usually not worth it, then Flashpoints at 5 p.m. and the Evening News at 6 p.m. On Mondays and Fridays I listen to the Morning Mix at 8 a.m. Monday August 27, 2012 was an EXCELLENT Morning Mix with Steve Zeltzer on the massacre of South Africa's miners, Mumia Abu-Jamal's weekly commentary, and other labor perspectives, all sorely needed everywhere. On Wednesdays at 1 p.m. I listen to Guns & Butter. Yesterday, August 27, Democracy Now, Flashpoints & the Evening News had the convention garbage so I switched to classical music. This writer has been listening to KPFA since early childhood and cannot remember so much garbage on KPFA. Yesterday, August 27, even the SF Chronicle had a good investigative story on the lack of affordable senior housing in San Francisco. We don't even get that on KPFA.
