Add comment on:KPFA: Radio Programs for the Community and Social Change, or for SaveKPFA’s Staff Allies?
Richard Phelps, former Chair KPFA LSB
Recently KPFA/Pacifica management abruptly cancelled the Morning Mix (MIX), 8-9 a.m. M-F, and replaced it with Uprisings, a program produced in Los Angeles by a person who lives in Los Angeles. The MIX was five (5) separate programs, primarily focused on politics in local communities, workplaces, and unions. They were produced by several volunteer programmers who live, work and are politically active in the Bay Area. This radical departure away from community based programming in the 8-9 a.m. prime time slot appears to be another consolidation of power by the SaveKPFA political faction that has to control the KPFA program schedule for its own benefit without regard for the community or the Pacifica Mission.
