A Time For Giving

As many of my readers know, I am proud to be co-host of Roots Music & Beyond, the Saturday morning folk and roots music show on KPFK-FM, Pacifica Radio for southern California but of course streaming worldwide over the web at

KPFK is a listener-supported public radio station with a wide variety of programming - musical, informational, educational, and political. We are currently in the midst of our April fund drive and trying to reach out via social media to the broader audience that we know we have nationally and even internationally. Roots Music and Beyond presents a kind of folk programming that you won’t hear anywhere else on Southern California FM radio - and few other places on the web or over the air nationally, for that matter.

Some simple stats:

It costs us over $7 a minute just to be on the air.
Doesn’t sound like much?
Well that’s over $10, 000 a day ($10,086.47 to be exact)
Over $ 70, 600 a week
Over $ 307, 000 a month

Is this a pitch for money? You betcha!

 It’s your radio station if you want it. Support us, please, with a large or small donation. Simply click on the KPFK fund drive link here -

Or Listen Live HERE to our fund drive programming for thank-you gifts and information about the benefits of ongoing contributions.

Up or down, agree or disagree, you won’t find better and more intelligent programming like this anywhere else.

Please consider making a donation to help keep us on the air with the kind of vigorous and refreshing set of perspectives that you just won't find on commercial radio.

And tune in for my next program on Saturday morning, April 18th - information and links to follow.
