Excerpts are provided below, FYI. And for anyone concerned to act accordingly as an activist wanting to maintain integrity of the corporations to which we contribute $$$.

KPFK votes in local board. Join them in meeting. (tags)

After lots of conflict and infighting, the elections reveal the new LSB members and delegates to Pacifica board. At the Jan 24 @ 1pm meeting , the rest of us, public-members of KPFK, can see and maybe meet, the board -  those who can maybe influence how the radio station runs or continues to fail it's sponsors.   At an easy to find location. see KPFK.org for details under 'events' on home page.

Now or never is the TIME TO VOTE for Pacifica's National Board, the Pacifica umbrella that reigns over KPFK, plus 4 other radio stations nationwide. Jan 4th - MONDAY is deadline.... Act now or watch any chance of having input diminished or maybe even removed...... owch !

More troubles? KPFK's got 'em. (tags)

OUR radio station must become more functional to have donors pay up ...to maintain the station. However, some signs of deterioration and neglect keep appearing. Sad. Scary. Can it die away ?

KPFK Website in error, difficult to search and find? Is it still functional ? (tags)

KPFK WEBSITE has many strange omissions and confusing double entries and seems to be neglected. Updates or correct information seems difficult to find. And wrong results appear, more than a few times.

KPFK needs your VOTE ! or lose it. (tags)

KPFK and Pacifica Elections must meet a very minimum quorum/ amount of voters who Vote and participate, or the expenses [about $25,000?] are wasted and same-old Board members happily stay stuck in place, out of legitimate time but clinging to power-positions. so VOTE if you qualify for their minimum contribution made this [fiscal] year. Call to inquire for more info at 818-985-2711 day hrs. or see www.KPFK.org for minimum info there.

KPFK is losing and reducing it's main programmers, so can Fresh ones emerge there instead? (tags)

KPFK Work Reductions ....signs of an ending now, so soon ? (tags)

- 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 

KPFK of long ago had different views.... (tags)

A KPFK FOLIO of 1967 has editorial that shows how closer to it's origins there was open discussion and sharing with listeners ideas, questions, and even the monthly mailing of a filmy printed schedule with original artworks, poetry and even an editorial. This is one found that seems to talk about 'those long ago' days and times but that also reveals a different attitude that was then Available and Allowed at Our Radio Station. KPFK 90.7 FM radio.

KPFK in MeltDown.NOW. (tags)

KPFK seems to be sliding down....hill...into financial decay...so say the paid-staff-programmers, now, finally admitting what has not been on-air told before. Or changing owners maybe ? Wont know till After it all Fallllls away ?

KPFK hosted PACIFICA's board in LA. Missed it? here's some for ya (tags)

More on PACIFICA FORUM in LA june 2015 - as observed and noted. Many KPFK public members - and staff - and programmers came for their brief 2-min comment to the 'parent' company- Pacifica PNB members present, The PNB spoke for hours disputing, conflicting, discussing and also shouting to each other - while the larger-size audience sat way in back behind their circle.

KPFK buys premiums to re-sell them for donations -so (tags)

so donations are paid for twice by radio station supporters? The donations are not just for station essential maintanence? But to buy-and-sell their donors bribes - called "gifts"? The 'premiums'-gifts sometimes sent in return for $$$ to pay for Pacifica radio stations' maintenance are paid for by station donors too - while merchandisers are also gettiing so much Free Promotion, advertising, lauding by programmers and on-air-web exposure. Never ending chaos continues therein. https://www.facebook.com/UnitedForCommunityRadio

KPFK is still losing money, begging daily and irritating all who have pledged $$$$ and are stakeholders who turn away from what seems endless fractionalized disorder. Some info from available sources aboyt how the problems also emanate from 'the above' organziation's sludging on without any honest improvements or doing real elections to show the way....or stop requiring payments to this nat'l office that is killing off any local gains or attempts to reduce, never stop, the infighting.

Updating chaotic crumblings at Pacifica - affects KPFK too. (tags)

Events continue in the higher levels of a mixed-up Pacifica Fdtn with who is in charge and who is not and who has authority and who claims what. With most in Los Angeles not extending to keep up with details as others derail and destroy what was before a ‘radical’ variety of programming at KPFK, along with it’s sponsors, here are reposted excerpts to both advise, inform, and urge activism in any form an Indy reader will dare to help the mess from spilling over and out into KPFK and so into our lives here. Fuller information is available at the links provided here. Note that excerpts are for *Relevant Clarification * and those that may be pertinent how KPFK in LA is affected by what else is currently being disputed, declared and not questioned. The many detracting claims and counterclaims affect the operations and functionings of Pacifica Fdtn and it’s 5 stations, More specific detailed info can be read in the entire articles/ reports written by Tracy Rosenberg at the links included at facebook: “United for Community Radio KPFA “. Though the stories appear to emphasize the sibling station in Berkeley KPFA, the results affect our Local KPFK radio station 90.7 FM in LA equally, even when our station's ID is ignored in their stories. It was our own KPFK prior GM who was laddered Up into Pacifica's interim Exe Director position, but by Berkeley's group and it was not even discussed at the local KPFK LSB in April. Why ?

Why is KPFK still failing to thrive ? (tags)

KPFK is more than intimately tied to it's umbrella leader Pacifica, whose latest Executive Director has been 'fired' by some of questionable authority and who refuses to accept the factionalization that predominates these radio stations operations. But no actual factual information is ever available, not locally from KPFK or most other sites on line. Mostly the usual malicious attacking anyone else blurbs are found online. Why do we who pay dearly to subscribe, to be members, to sponsor KPFK programs [tho we may not chose to pay for all pgrms presented there, if given any free choices ] . We, outside the sacred halls of radio station know NOTHING from our local sources of KPFK or Pacifica 'news' and information Finally 1 site just went up, see below. Just recently a new site went up that allows no comments but is intended to take a side in the national malicious arguments on line about who runs the Pacifica PNB [nat’l board] and petitions are included therein. see http://2014.supportkpfa.org and also maybe tour thru facebook https://www.facebook.com/notes/tracy-rosenberg/turning-off-the-water-and-firing-the-lawyer/10201760444914193 to learn a bit more about what is dramatically occurring in Pacifica’s Berkley offices. To search out what may be factual or actual from what are marketing-promotional or negative-attack-ads blurbs takes hours of time and reading and is uncompensated ‘work’ just to know where even our KPFK dollars are being spent or set up to be wasted. And other than a midnight interview that was not heard by the great majority of KPFK listeners gave a hint of what is happening to Pacific, about it’s Executive Director, and the future of the whole set of radio stations affiliated and dependent on some structure that is stable and honest…if possible.

KPFK SECRECY, TURMOILS, CONFLICTS, OPAQUENESS, and HYPOCRISY too ? (tags)

KPFK is apparently again experiencing changes with inside-hidden-competitions. turmoil, factionalizing conflicts and has denied it’s stakeholders and paying Public Members and Sponsors any participation or even being informed of “what is going on there ?” The most recent LSB board meeting was very unusually filled with KPFK programmers, some staff, and many public members present, speaking to problems that most members did not have any information about and could not obtain. Twice during that long 5 hr meeting, public comment time was used to directly ASK all in the room to clarify, state, explain to ‘the rest of us’ what was occurring and yet there was NO DIRECT HONEST INFORMATION given openly by anyone in the room to those ‘not in the know’. Five hours of maneuvering, conflicts, discussions and yet not one honest response to the question “what is happening inside KPFK ?” that brought out so many people to speak in behalf of staff or complain about staff or promote their own personal issues and causes. The Problem was never revealed nor stated. How could this be ? at Our Radio Station ?

KPFK: self-destructing? or is it again the usual dysfunctioning? (tags)

Recent comments have been heard : that the Pacifica National Board may want to replace current management/ staff without Informing, or Getting Input from the Shareholders who ‘own’ + pay + sustain the station. What details are kept secret, and the usual silence on-air gags all conversation, or any sharing of what is actually happening ? Contrary to claims of ‘open communications’ it is still only a 1-way communication coming from inside KPFK to us out here - and nothing allowed to exit from the hallowed station-office halls to the Paying Public - the one that keeps the station afloat. Why ? What maneuvers could be happening ? When will the Shareholders find out [oh, is it already too late ?] to participate in this upheaval or learn of the intentions to make major personnel changes at KPFK ? huh ?

Remembrance Day 2013: Celebrating 12th anniversary of Britain’s endless warfare (tags)

For the past 12 years, the British public has been constantly subjected to an intense war propaganda justifying Britain’s genocidal wars across Asia and Africa. Despite the absence of any real anti-war movement, the public exasparation with endless warfare became apparent in September with the Government's failure to obtain the necessary support to launch war on Syria. Held two months later, this year’s Remembrance Day events were by far the most elaborate. Apart from the habitual propaganda and fundraising for the Army, overt efforts to pressurise British Muslims into manifesting support for British imperialism and militarism were particularly sinister.

Media Arts Center Hosts "Radio Summer" August 29 (tags)

The Prometheus Radio Project, a nationwide organization working to broaden the range of community voices available on America's audio airwaves, scored a major victory in July when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) finally set up a licensing rule for thousands of new low-power FM (LPFM) radio stations, including some in urban areas previously ineligible for these grass-roots local stations. Now Prometheus is promoting a series of events called "Radio Summer" to organize people to obtain these licenses and get their stations on the air. The Media Arts Center of San Diego is hosting a "Radio Summer" event Monday, August 29, 6 to 8 p.m. at their office, 2921 El Cajon Boulevard (near 30th St.) in North Park, with a wide variety of other organizations in coalition. So if you're tired of the San Diego airwaves seeming to be the private preserve of the extreme Right, that's where you need to be next Monday!

Good news from WBAI, Pacifica in NY (tags)

WBAI is KPFA's Pacifica sister station in New York. Unfortunately, for several years WBAI was dominated and mismanaged by a group which called itself the "Justice & Unity Coalition" (JUC).

For KPFK/Pacifica Fans: Feedback Wanted (tags)

At its meeting on Tuesday, November 11, the Local Station Board Delegates will be voting on changes to the Pacifica Bylaws. The Bylaws took more than a year of contention and lawsuits to assemble, and changes should be carefully considered. Overall, the changes, included below with comments for and against, increase the amount of business the Pacifica National Board can do and increase its efficiency in doing that business. The downside is reduced member and listener participation in the process. As an LSB member, I would like to hear your thoughts on these important revisions before voting. You can comment here or email me privately, or you can voice your opinion at the LSB meeting, at 7:00 at Palms Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2908 Robertson Place, Los Angeles. The Church is located 3 blocks north of National Blvd. and the I-10, to the east of S. Robertson Blvd. LA buses 220 and 534 and Big Blue Bus 12 are within walking distance.

"A Liar...A Cheater...Physically Abusive" (tags)

Many tried to warn Pacifica about KPFK's new General Manager, Eva Georgia, but nobody listened. The Pacifica Radio Network, with five stations and numerous affiliates, has seen enough trouble over the last three years.

Outwardly Progressive, Internally Corporate: Pacifica's Next Challenge (tags)

Internal problems at Pacifica stations still plague the network. While the major battle at Pacifica was won early this year, the war against a corporate style hierarchy is not over. It was this very hierarchy which enabled the General Managers to abuse their power within the stations in the first place. In order for meaningful change to occur, this structure should change, not just the personalities. Please see attached open letter by KPFK staff, highlighting problems and suggesting some solutions. (To add your name in solidarity, see directions below.)
