KPFT, the Pacifica station in Houston, Texas, is ‘relaunching’ their HD3 broadcast channel. Programming on KPFT HD3 will also be simulcast online. At this time, you can hear KPFT HD3 at several URLs including: http://tunein.com/radio/KPFT-HD3-901-s134745/ , http://kpfttx.rad.io/
“Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig” is scheduled to premier on May 1, 2013 and will be on every Wednesday from 2-3PM (CT).
The current concept I have for the show is outlined in an early draft below:
Why “’Thinkwing’ Radio”? Because I try to be open to reasoned (even opposite) opinions, even if I disagree with them. I certainly have a Progressive outlook, but I try to conduct the show based on two premises:
- An educated electorate is a prerequisite for a democracy; and
- You’re entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.
An additional caveat: Just because I agree with you, don’t assume that you won’t have to defend your position.
While on some level, any topic can be 6 degrees (or less) of separation from politics, that’s not the only focus of the show. Guests range from authors to historians, economists, political candidates and party leaders. Topics can be on politics, technology, science, space exploration, environment, or anything else which catches my fancy as I’m building toward a show each week. I’m a man of many interests, and my show topics will reflect that.
Tune in Wednesdays at 2PM on KPFT HD3 and on the web, or listen after the show “On Demand”. All shows will have a blog post component online, and we can respond to any comments no later than the next show. (We’ll see about a ‘real-time’ option.) We hope to allow listener participation through Twitter, and perhaps email and/or Facebook. (This will be a work-in-progress for a while.)
Join us. We’ll always be something new.
Further information will be provided when it becomes available.
