text A master-plan is needed to support renter protections in Northern California, & elsewhere Lynda Carson idVer:ee6510f8f213c68bd1811f7456 2015-10-25 9:48 PM
Oakland has the second fastest-rising rents in the nation, passing the pace of San Francisco’s rent increases, and coming in second behind the rent increases occurring in Denver. The rents in Oakland have climbed over 12.1 percent since 2014. Slumlords, greedy landlords, profiteers, speculators, and nefarious realtors reign supreme in Oakland, who are protected by local and state politicians that are in the pockets, of big money!

text KPFK Work Reductions ....signs of an ending now, so soon ? a dismayed KPFK listener 2015-08-18 10:30 AM
- KPFK has been on air radio 'plugging' begging pleading irritating and repeating for a whole month, to not enough avail. Results are maybe 1/2 of their [pre-set] goal. And who wants to listen to same-old infomercials repeated endlessly....instead of any 'regular programming'.    Why pay forr this onslaught? Then notice of staffs being reduced hours,  as program-staff work-times are also being  reduced when some New-fangled ' gen'l mgr' decides she liles extreme  & factually unsubstantiated views better.... and... more to come  (text/plain)

text KPFK RADIO is essential to Pacifica, who also umbrellas KPFA that may be falling away KPFK loyalist 2015-08-07 7:26 PM
KPFK is the prime radio station of 5 in Pacifica. KPFA in Berkeley seems to be acting illegally or secretly to separate OUT and away from Pacifica with 1 faction hiding their moves. This is here a repost to inform those who want KPFK in LA to continue and not fall prey to tactics used at it's sister station. Beware non-transparent games even within 'non-profit' corporations owned by stakeholders [ funders, pledge $ givers].this could be a warning of what may also be gamed with KPFKs existence. Learn more and share it too. (text/plain)
