SIGNOFF QUOTE[s]:

“… I know this world well. One of the things that is … a deep conviction of the conservative world is they speak for the people. When they get evidence … that they don`t, they don`t respond to that … by confessing it. They respond to it by redefining who the people are. And one of the big themes of the year ahead is going to be a redefinition of who does and who doesn`t belong to the American people.”  ~ DAVID FRUM, SENIOR EDITOR, THE ATLANTIC, after Democrats swept most off-off-year contests and won Virginia (Transcript: Show: THE LAST WORD WITH LAWRENCE O’DONNELL, November 8, 2017)

KPFT.ORG: KPFT Schedule Improvements Streamline Program Schedule (and Roark is Back!)

KPFT Schedule Improvements Streamline Program Schedule (and Roark is Back!)

Starting Monday, 14 August, KPFT will welcome Roark Smith back to Wide Open Spaces from 9am to noon, along with several other improvements to our schedule grid. These changes are to serve our listeners better, help people find the type of programs they are looking for, and to build a wider and larger audience for KPFT’s volunteer-produced community radio format, and ultimately to be more successful at paying our bills with on-air fundraising.

—–>  click here to see the new KPFT lineup (PDF format) <——-

Listening blocks are now more consistent from day to day. Noon to 2pm we present a musical strip of popular music programs including Jazz Latino and the award-winning south Asian DJ program Generasian Radio. 4pm to 6pm weekdays KPFT  presents a drive-time music block comprised of some of our most popular weekday music shows- including Blues in Hi-Fi, Sound Awake, and Border Radio, to name a few.

KPFT Local News moves to a morning news incarnation at 8am called KPFT News First Look, Open Journal moves to a weekly spot every 6pm on Mondays, where it joins a 6pm lineup including Nuestra Palabra, Arab Voices, Living Art, and Her Sex/Her Health. 7pm welcomes Tell The World on Wednesdays, to complement The Monitor, Coming to America, Progressive Forum, and Thresholds on the other days of the week at 7pm. Later evenings continue to host diverse information programs before giving way to eclectic music and other programmings through the night.

The morning lineup now presents the Thom Hartmann Show at 5am, followed by a rebroadcast of an hour of our most popular weekend shows at 6am. Then, Democracy Now with Amy Goodman remains a 7am staple, before we go full circle with KPFT News First Look at 8am. KPFT’s Voices program will no longer be heard at 9am.

Thanks for all you do to help keep listener-supported, volunteer-driven KPFT alive and well as we work together in our diversity to move towards a solid future for our station.
