Setting the Standard has been around 8-10 years, and was originally started by Maya Rise. We kept it going, and continues to evolve into many platforms. We are a all volunteer crew, and bring you information, poetry, music, and much more. You can tune in online at or on the radio at 94.1fm KPFA, 89.3 KPFB in Berkeley, and 88.1fm in Fresno. As part of being on the airwaves we make sure to include community events, issues, and resources as well.
