Sing Out

Live on KPFA at 10:00 PM Pacific Time: Wednesdays
See the KPFA Program Grid for more details.

“Sing Out” is a showcase of the world’s ever-changing musical realm, hosted since 1989 by Larry Kelp. It was launched in 1974 by David Dunaway, author of the acclaimed Pete Seeger biography, “How Can I Keep from Singing.” The show’s theme song, “A Place in the Choir,” illuminates a disparate group of critters who come together harmoniously through music. The show attempts the same feat with a diverse array of recordings from Classical to the Clash, and live performers who have included Pharoah Sanders, Charles Brown, Iris DeMent, Dar Williams, ROVA Saxophone Quartet, Grupo Raiz, Los Cenzontles, Patricia Barber, Fred Frith, and dozens more.

 

Suspense

Live on KPFA at 09:00 PM Pacific Time: Sundays
See the KPFA Program Grid for more details.

Suspense is a new version of the classic radio anthology series by the same name; the original ran on CBS Radio from 1942-1962, and featured a who's-who of Hollywood talent. The scripts are an equal mix of originals and adaptations, performed by a growing company of Hollywood actors that include Adrienne Wilkinson ('Xena'); Tucker Smallwood ('Contact'); Elizabeth Gracen ('Highlander'); and master voiceover artist Daamen Krall, who’s also the show’s host.

Bonnie has been programming her mix of singer/songwriter folk, rock, soul, country, and R&B on KPFA since the late 1980’s. One of the best loved personalities of Bay Area music radio, she was raised in New York, and then moved to San Francisco from Denver in 1968 and became a pioneer of free form radio.

During her eight years, from 1970 to 1978, at the legendary KSAN, she was program music director and disc jockey.

After leaving KSAN, she worked at Warner Bros, promoting Prince as well as the first Dire Straits and Rickie Lee Jones albums, amongst others, and also worked at Hightone Records. She moved in and out of radio at KFOG, LIVE 105, KOFY-FM, KVRE, KDBK “Double 99” and KUSF.

As the Audio Director for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she created the disc jockey audio exhibit and many of the exhibits involving sound at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

On a local level, Bonnie spent several years working as a sandwich-maker at Ozzie's Soda Fountain in Berkeley, and currently hosts her eclectic weekly show on KPFA.

Bonnie managed the band Cake for eight years, and represented Noe Venable and Etienne de Rocher for many years. For the past nine years she has spent a lot of her time working on the three day free music festival in Golden Gate Park, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and currently serves as the Executive Director for the Bill Graham Foundation.
