    KPFA and Pacifica has friends in the music New York and LA and the Bay Area .Hundreds of them who owe KPFA favors…Willie Nelson Paid his IRS debt with concerst!!!
    You could easily pay for all your debts in a case like this…it seems you dont wan to…or you’d have mobilized your BASE of Music business fans already,….to do one or two or 4 Concerts in Texas, Washington DC Berkeley, New York…come on ! Im a singer song writer in Sebastopol area and I know i on my own dime, could drum up musicians to play to save KPFA… Why have you not Asked all the musicians youve help over the years to organize benifet concerts to get the 2million bucks??? Why have you not done this ??? even the Dead Heads alone could come up with concerts to pay this bill….!!!! Right?

    And I hate to say it but….you guys need to dump amy goodman …she’s so mainstream it imbarrasing…Amy’s jumped the shark !

    And your logo phrase “vigilant as always” should go too!…it’s too vague for anyone ‘aware” to take it seriously. Which leaves it only being effective with the uninformed…it’s News speak-ish! A great logo for a phony progressive radio station . Which you are working not to be …right?

    Those fund drives are when I try to find news elsewhere. Short, periodic reminders: help if you can. Droning on for 15 minutes does not change a person’s account balance.
