Hear candidates from the Rescue Pacifica affinity group who will present why they are running in the KPFA, Local Station Board election.
Join us as we have a revealing discussion about the on-going divisive activities disrupting the Berkeley, CA based public/community based radio station KPFA (94.1FM), and their national organization Pacifica. For years mismanagement has plagued northern California's only Progressive/Left community radio station with near bankruptcy, and watered down neoLiberal reporting and programming. Many people on the side of rescuing KPFA and Pacifica have struggled over the years to avoid deliberate bankruptcy which which favors a transition to a corporate advertising model.

The pro-management KFPA United For Community Radio supporters banned the video taping of public meetings of the KPFA local station board. They also voted unanimously to take the station and network into bankruptcy where they hoped a judge would turn the station over to them to operate. They had set up. a secret foundation to run the station if it went bankrupt.
The same grouping has also refused to have either board meetings or KPFA Town Hall meetings in the the South Bay and other listener areas so supporters can speak out on what they. want to see at the station.
