Control Room time does not include an engineer. That must be arranged separately.

It is the responsibility of the Programmer to check the calendar to confirm that requested booking is accurate. You will not be contacted after making your booking request. The listing on the calendar is the final booking and is assigned on a first come, first served basis with airtime considerations.

Production time will be held for 10 minutes before we determine that it’s a ‘No Show’ and time may be reassigned to anyone requesting it. Engineering must be contacted in order for the time to be held.

KPFA reserves the right to pre-empt any booking for engineering and On-air considerations.
