    Zero comments maybe that’s all that are allowed. I had to laugh or I would have cried when i read 15 minutes for public comment that must be a typo or bad joke. 15 days would be more appropriate. I can see KPFA has been changed from the edgy not for everybody and to hell with them anyhow to some psuedodo pc careful not to tip the money cart comfortable trough for old people. I say use all of George Carlins words and tell the world the truth be as real as reality and the the money will pour in. 15 minutes what a shame!

      That’s unfair to the CAB. They offer lots of fresh ideas gathered at these meetings, but they’re typically ignored by programming staff.

      • Michael Mahoney

        Unfair or not my point is that only having fifteen minutes for public comment sends the message don’t bother your odds of being heard if you show up are slightly better than winning the power ball. Ann I bow to your experience and really don’t know what i’m talking about here except to say I feel Kpfa is loosing it’s attractive ugliness.

        • AnnGarrison

          Well, I”m afraid I agree with you about kpfa’s diminishing appeal, however you describe it. There is a comment period of similar length at the Local Station Board elections. The real problem, however, is that Pacifica by-laws require KPFA to hold two town hall meetings every year, and station management hasn’t held a single one in many years.

          • AnnGarrison

            I meant “Local Station Board elections “when I said “Local Station Board meetings. Since the elections just ended, they’re still on my mind.
