  • How They’ve Wanted to Stop Us

    Posted by Anyel Z Fields at Tuesday, August 4th, 2020 11:28am

    Oh, how they’ve wanted to stop us. Every day KPFK opens up a new controversy, a new societal pain point, a new cultural, political or community insight, and new revelations about everything that means something in your life. We can’t help it. It’s who we are and what we do. And we won’t stop.

  • Listener Appreciation

    Posted by Anyel Z. Fields at Friday, May 31st, 2019 12:00am

    I want to extend my gratitude and appreciation to all who have helped and supported KPFK and the Pacifica Foundation during our fund drive. A special thanks to those that have been there for KPFK including its listeners through thick and thin. It was a tough decision to preempt our regular programming in May so that we could meet our goal to fund KPFK's operations.
