SAVE KUSF protest
Thursday * August 25th * noon-1 p.m. * Outside the offices of Entercom (201 3rd Street, San Francisco)
Join us as we take our voices outside the local offices of Entercom, the media conglomerate that helped orchestrate the shady deal which took KUSF off the air.
Entercom remains the only winner in this bad deal for San Francisco. The company moved its money-making generic classic rock station into the San Francisco market and pawned off their long running classical station KDFC to CPRN, which is busy trying to create a media monopoly of its own on the left side of the dial.
The music coming out on 90.3 FM is actually being broadcast out of the offices of Entercom - from the same studio KDFC had when it was a commercial station. The relationship between this corporation that owns over 100 radio stations in the country and CPRN is beyond sketchy and problematic.
Just say no to corporate radio!
Stand up against the commercialization of the left side of the dial!
We need to keep community/public radio in the hands of our community!
