KPFA’s newly formatted show in the 11am hour, Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays springs directly from listener feedback. Listeners want to be able to turn to KPFA to find out about local politics, culture and music and to get the opportunity to dialogue through comments and questions around bigger regional and national issues.
The Talkies will showcase the wealth of authors, artists, activists, theater and music in the Bay Area and beyond through interviews, call ins, and readings. It will also highlight some of the best of KPFA, bringing on the work of our own programmers, feature stories about issues in our communities, KPFA podcasts and live in-studio performances.
Hosted by one of KPFA’s best known programmers, Kris Welch has lived and worked in the Bay Area for a good portion of her adult life. Kris is a natural storyteller, seasoned communicator and a master of the art of radio. She is excited to be host to a variety of stories emanating from the Bay Area scene along with National and Regional stories with local reverberations. The Talkies seeks to help us get to know each other and share our lives and passions through the intimacy of the broadcast word.
