    Couldn’t you find someone other than Ginny Z. Berson? She shouldn’t be allowed to sully the doors of KPFA. For those too young or new she was part of the Mary Frances Berry take over cabal. Sorry I don’t forgive.

  • Well thanksNOT for making the KPFA pages the opposite of what they used to be, simple – to access, to use. The modern marvel – take away our stuff – then pretend to give it back – requiring much self-revision, and taking us out of each others’ eyesight. This tool is way far from most people.

• The cost of independent media is high. Donate today to KPFA!      • Thank you to Stella Nonna Restaurant in Berkeley, and Renaissance Specialty Cakes from Oakland, for their "Delicious" support during our Fund Drive.      • For more morning news and information check out UpFront daily 7am-9am
