As part of KPFA, we are committed to promoting independent community media that is free and accessible to everyone.

Behind the News with Doug Henwood

Live on KPFA at 12:00 PM (Noon) Pacific Time: Thursdays
See the KPFA Program Grid for more details.

Behind the News covers the worlds of economics and politics and their complex interactions, from the local to the global. Shows typically consist of some opening comments by host Doug Henwood on the recent news, followed by two or three interviews with authors, activists, academics, and other knowledgeable sorts. Since mystification is one of the tricks that power uses to maintain itself, emphasis is always placed on clarifying the complex.

Topics covered include the broad economy and the financial markets, trade and globalization, income distribution and poverty, political candidates (with an emphasis on their general bogosity), Latin American resistance to neoliberalism, crime and imprisonment, financing health care, environmental economics, and the culture of money. Of course, that list will evolve as circumstances warrant.

Doug Henwood

Host/producer profile

Doug Henwood has been hosting Behind the News since 1996; his radio career began in 1989, with commentaries delivered on the late and deeply missed Samori Marksman's show. His day job is as a writer and editor. He edits Left Business Observer, a newsletter he founded in 1986, and is a contributing editor of The Nation. He is the author of three books - The State of the USA Atlas (1994), Wall Street (1997), and After the New Economy (2004). He's at work on a study of the American ruling class, whoever that might be.

Dead To The World

Live on KPFA at 08:00 PM Pacific Time: Wednesdays
See the KPFA Program Grid for more details.

Dead to the World began life on KPFA as the Grateful Dead Hour. When host David Gans was offered a second hour in 1995, he agreed on the condition that he be allowed to play non-Dead music as well. "No problem," said the management, and so Dead to the World was born.

The general scheme of the show is Grateful Dead and Dead-related music in the first hour, followed by an eclectic mix of music that focuses on great songwriting – usually in the general realms of  "folk," "Americana," and "jamband" music. But anything can happen! We are privileged to be able to present live performances from the control room or the Performance studio (with special thanks to Tony Ferro, our volunteer engineer, who makes it sound great on the air and in the studio).

When David is on the road, you'll almost always hear Tim Lynch guest-hosting the show. "Tim's tastes in music are similar to mine, but different enough that I feel the listeners are very well served," says David.
