Bring back the morning show with Aimee and Brian
Rank Choice Voting in Oakland has not been covered since Aimee was fired.
I know rank choice voting presents a BIG threat to the Democrates/republcans, this IDEA is death to them and great for politicians for the people.
The management (arlene Finglehard) has come to our cash cow community radio station to steer it as she sees fit.
I only support kpfa through SaveKpfa.org, this way our community has a say so on how our money is spent.
Josh, if you want to bring back the SaveKPFA/Wellstone Democrat "Morning Show," you should attend the KPFA Local Station Board meetings. You should call for an effective Program Council that can field your programming suggestions. There must be due process by which programming decisions can be arrived at fairly. It's a wonder why you don't question the CWA union, which replaced the previous Electrical Workers Union at KPFA. Before the CWA engaged in, essentially, union-busting at KPFA, unpaid workers had more rights. Since the CWA, there is class division at KPFA between paid workers and unpaid workers. The SaveKPFA faction (including Brian Edwards-Tiekert, Aileen Alfandary, C.S. Soong, Sasha Lilley, et al.) will never debate anyone publicly because they have an indefensible position.
Instead, you say you only support KPFA through SaveKPFA because you perceive this to be the only way 'your community' can have a say. Who is 'your community'? Where are you coming from? Who do you represent? KPFA's listenership is broad and diverse. And there is bound to be disagreement. Only through fair and transparent due process with an open, video-taped and YouTubed, LSB and Program Council process can we hope to balance the true needs of KPFA's entire listenership.
You should read all available information, not just one side, such as www.SupportKPFA.org
What you propose is for those with the most money to exert disproportionate influence at KPFA. What you propose is to undermine the Executive Director because you cling to two particular hosts. This is unacceptable.
