It’s not a minute to soon rescue Free Speech Radio KPFA and Pacifica.
Stand Strong and draw the line at the Morning Mix!
On the evening of May 21, Morning Mix producers were told that their programs were cancelled. Some have been moved to other spots in the schedule. Others were cancelled entirely.
On May 23, Save KPFA sent an e-mail blast happily announcing that the Morning Mix will be replaced by Uprising Radio with host Sonali Kolhatkar. Ms. Kolhatkar is a long-time collaborator of Brian Edwards-Tiekert whose program UpFront runs from 7-8 am.
Insiders predict that the two programs will eventually merge, making Mr. Edwards-Tiekert the gatekeeper of all the morning prime time hours at KPFA.
Diversity is an strong theme for those who think this change is a spectacularly bad idea. This is from a statement by Morning Mix Host Sabrina Jacobs:
Dennis Bernstein and Miguel Molina talk about the changes on Flashpoints.
