I've got some wonderful music lined up, and a couple of interviews from the archive that I think you'll enjoy.

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) Katie
