CALL 713-526-5738!! KPFT is in its WINTER Fund Drive. Most of the folks who work and broadcast at KPFT are volunteers, but it still fixed and variable expenses, meaning it costs $150/hour, 24/7/365 to keep KPFT on the air.

KPFT does not accept corporate sponsors. Over 90% of KPFT ‘s funding comes from individual listeners, and only about 1 listener in 16 helps to support KPFT at any given time.

Whether you can only afford to pledge a couple of bucks or $1000, we appreciate whatever you can do. If you can’t pledge support at this time, we still appreciate that you listen to KPFT .

Only 7 companies own about 30 of Houston’s 50-odd radio stations. Those 7 companies determine most of what you hear on your radio.

KPFT airs 95 different programs every week. If KPFT has a format, that format is … almost anything you can think of!

Please support Thinkwing Radio! Please help support KPFT and keep community-supported radio on the air!

Thanks, Mike Honig

#ThinkwingRadio: August 20, 2014, 10-11PM, @KPFT-FM 90.1 (Houston). GUESTS: Egberto Willies & Eric Johnson. TOPIC(s): A JUDGMENT-FREE ZONE FOR A DISCUSSION OF RACE RELATIONS. WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? [AUDIO]

SHOW AUDIO: kpft_2014-08-20_2200 RACE AND CULTURE, EGBERTO WILLIES & ERIC JOHNSON

NOTE AFTER THE SHOW: Thanks so much to Egberto and Eric and the callers who were willing to participate and take advantage of the show’s “Safe Zone”, and share honesty and candor, and allow us to have a true dialogue. This show meant a lot to me. ~ Mike

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT TONIGHT’S SHOW: Race is a difficult, and even risky, topic for public discussion. Sometimes, one moment of naïve candor or an unfortunate turn of phrase can raise a firestorm of protest and criticism.

I am hoping that tonight’s show can be a “Judgment-Free Zone” in order to encourage a real and useful discussion of the challenges we ALL face when it comes to race relations.
