Pledge your support to KPFA by calling 510-848-5732 or 1-800-439-5732 or donate online at kpfa.org. You can sign up to volunteer in the phone room by calling 510-848-6767 x206. It’s fun!
Please “like” the Facebook event and help spread the word! We will auction photos and other cool memorabilia via the Facebook page.
However, living 5/6 of a continent due east and supporting my own public radio station, I cannot afford the $100 donation cost. HEY KPFA...now that the event is over, please consider making this a gift available at a lower donation threshhold! (someone get 'em the word)
I've got some wonderful music lined up, and a couple of interviews from the archive that I think you'll enjoy.
