In secret meetings on Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, the Pacifica Foundation National Board, which governs the 5-station nonprofit progressive radio network, voted over strong opposition to authorize its executives to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and initiate an effort to make a lucrative deal to swap the frequency of iconic New York station WBAI with another station holding a less desirable signal position.

J'accuse! The Betrayal of WBAI (PACIFICA RADIO) (tags)
After more than 20 years, WBAI has cancelled the Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade.

Dan Siegel is being sued along with Bambi and 99 other as-yet-unnamed co-defendants for conspiring to quit his paid position as Pacifica Radio's Legal Counsel in order to serve as an unpaid member of the KPFA Berkeley Local Station Board. The lawsuit is widely seen as a political witch hunt as Pacifica drifts to the right in pursuit of monied white middle class donors.

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). The rule of the JUC ended this spring, when Grace Aaron became Pacifica's PNB chair and acting Executive Director; she intervened and made changes. Below is a report from WBAI by Doug Henwood.

" ..... we urge that the scheduling of Democracy Now (should) not be used as a weapon by the current management of WBAI against its opponents."

Dan Siegel & Pacifica Radio (tags)
Dan Siegel is now both interim Executive Director and General Counsel for Pacifica. He intervened in last fall's KPFA board election to help insure a victory for the Sherry Gendelman slate. Meanwhile, the board election at WBAI, the Pacifica sister station in New York, was even more blatantly corrupt than the one at KPFA, and it became the subject of a court case. In this letter, counsel for the plaintiffs tells the Pacifica National Board (PNB) that Dan Siegel is "an unreliable source of legal advice and facts about this lawsuit."

KPFK (dead) Stream Update (tags)
A little over a week ago I posted a petition so that folks in the KPFK community would learn about WBAI's use of live365.com's service for spill-over at times when KPFK.org's streaming audio croaks. Roy Tuckman ("Roy of Hollywood") wrote about the petition and the issue at his show summary page:
KPFK streaming SUCKS - here's how to help make it better (tags)
This was posted before but I'm tossing it up as a repost because it's well worth signing the petition. It will likely not cost KPFK a penny to do what WBAI does to get their "over flow" streams on to www.live365.com
