KPFK Radio-is the most important left, progressive, antiwar/pro-peace
national radio station, establish end of the world war II in United States,
currently we have 5 sister stations (Berkeley, LA, NYC, DC and Houston) and
I had been a proud Pacifica Radio KPFK Los Angeles volunteer/unpaid
reporter/programmer for ten years, but if people know the decade-long
Pacifica struggle then you know the station had many internal struggles had
derailed our origional mission statements.
When I got an e-mail from my one of the good activist friend from LA about
the possbile pro-war host on our station's radio show, I could not sit do
nothing! I didn't listen to the show but I believe her judgement and took her
risk to put this e-mail public, and I am taking a great risk (since I might
loose our own radio project in KPFK) but with my believe and passion of
justice stood up high and I need to ask folks to raise your concerns to the
KPFK management at this crutial period!

I think most of the guest hosts parading through the 4pm and 5pm hrs on KPFK
have been pretty progressive, with varying degrees of ability and experience.
But today, I was a bit surprised to hear that the 4pm host was Xandra
Hayden(sp?), an occasional contributor to the LA Times and public policy
scholar who has never seemed particularly progressive to me. More a moderate
than even a liberal, is the impression I've gotten over the years.
I tried to listen with an open mind. But in the segment on Pakistan, it
seemed to me that she made remarks in support of the war on terrorism, in
support of the war in Afghanistan, and made some positive remarks about
supporting the dictator Musharref (sorry, spelling again) as a bringer of
order. I did not hear every word, since I was doing a bit of housecleaning
at the time, but this is my overall assessment of her positions.
Did anyone else hear? Do you agree with my assessment? I have been a big
proponent of not purging old hosts from KPFK either because they sided with
Schubb or they were not radical enough, but instead being okay a range of
views and approaches. But surely the LAST thing we need is NEW hosts who
don't support the mission!
Please let KPFK know how you feel about these issues, and give feedback on
new hosts and shows.
