A call for secession...
An anonymous poster pointed the way to the following audio from KPFT. It is Leo Gold, host of The New Capital Show, hosting another program, Partisan Gridlock, yesterday afternoon, April 11. I don't know the normal nature of that show, but Mr. Gold decided that this edition would be about Pacifica.
I edited out his lengthy, rambling introduction, in which he explains, in very basic terms, what Pacifica is, that KPFT is one of the five stations it owns, and that there is currently a problem in Berkeley, on the foundation level. I redacted that part, because most of you already know the situation—Mr. Gold assumes that KPFT's listeners don't. He also wants the listeners to know that the ideas he puts forth are his own and not in any way related to his being Chair of the KPFT Local Station Board, a position he was elected to last January.
The show ends with phone calls that I think you might find interesting.
