Two and a half weeks ago, KPFA’s interim managers, Andrew Phillips and Carrie Core, announced the most sweeping reorganization of the station’s programming in at least a decade, to be implemented following KPFA’s spring fund drive. They rearranged KPFA’s program grid without any input from listeners about what they’d like. They didn’t think to ask the listeners. So SaveKPFA, a community-labor coalition, did.
SaveKPFA has come up with an online survey, which asks listeners how they feel about management’s changes — from Democracy Now! to Music of the World to Cover to Cover. SaveKPFA says it will “use the data to show KPFA and Pacifica management what the KPFA community wants out of our station.”
“As a news junkie, I want the return of the morning show followed by Democracy Now with a good cup of coffee and I’m set to change the world!” writes one of the hundreds of listeners who have taken the survey this week. “Without that order, I’ll have to change KPFA!”
If you haven’t done so already — please take 2 minutes to complete this survey. And share it with other listeners who care about KPFA — the more responses they get, the better.
