Program Announcements

KPFZ would like to thank Scott Sommers for his 6+ years with us.  Scott was the original programmer for Surface Noise, heard on Tuesday from 3-5 p.m.  His love of music was evident in the many genres he played.  Scott is grateful for all the dedicated listeners and friends he made during his time here.  Scott is moving out of the area but Surface Noise continues with Stu as the programmer.  We know you join us in wishing him well in all future endeavors.

KPFZ radio will host a memorial gathering for former programmer and past president Catherine Elias, who died in December.

The event will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 21, at the United Methodist/Unitarian Universalist Church, 3810 Main Street, Kelseyville.

Catherine and her husband Steve Elias were actively involved in the development of KPFZ and from 2001 to 2011 co-hosted several on-air public affairs programs.

In the early 2000s Catherine Elias served as board president of Lake County Community Radio, which owns and operates KPFZ.

A long-time civil rights advocate and legal specialist, Catherine Elias worked in the areas of welfare rights, paralegal training, development of self-help law and other consumer materials, and education programs for youth and the public.

She was executive director of the National Self-Help Law Project, Founder of the National Association for Independent Paralegals, and associate director of the National Bankruptcy Law Project.

She also co-authored Nolo Press’ Independent Paralegal’s Handbook and wrote numerous articles, handbooks and training programs.

The public is invited to attend the memorial. Call 707-263-3640 for more information.

Unfortunately we are adding about ten FAKE users a day  … unless our stream is hugely popular in Russia …  so I have turned OFF new user registration.

KPFZ received word that Catherine Elias passed away on Monday, December 29, 2014.  We want to take this opportunity to express our sympathy to her family and friends.

Catherine was a pillar in the initial founding, design, structure, and maintenance of KPFZ.  She and her husband, Steve, were not only on the air together (and sometimes separately) for many years with Lake County Magazine, Both Sides Now, and other shows.  Catherine served as the founding President of the Board of Directors, Treasurer, and other capacities throughout the years as she remained on the Board.  She also represented KPFZ at conferences and meetings.

Catherine was loved greatly by the radio family and others in Lake County.  Catherine had a long-term relationship with deeper values of love, compassion, care, and justice.  This was demonstrated by her organizational work for women, human, and civil rights, along with other honorable causes in Washington, DC and her in Lake County.  She will be missed.

Memorial service information is not available at this time but we will post it when it becomes available.

UPDATE:  The family will not be having a memorial service at this time.  Please see the comments for more details.


I’m Alan Fletcher. I  am taking over  the role of  ”Web Master” from David Lark,  who leaves it in good shape : thank you for setting up the current version.  I will mostly handle the technical aspects.

More importantly, Ellen H has also joined the web team, and will be taking the lead on content, as “Web Mistress” or “Editor”.  She’s already at work getting the schedule up to date.

Please see the first few comments for details.

    Andy, I very much enjoyed reading your “guidelines” this morning. It is about time I finally read them. I look forward to improving my performance as a programmer and just want to thank you for all the work you do to keep KPFZ professional and a very special part of our community.

    The address of the Facebook page has changed. People on Facebook can still find it the same way, simply by typing KPFZ into the FB search box. But if you have it bookmarked, you will have to do it again. The last part of the address has been changed from to “”

    The full address is: This will make a difference when referring to it on air.

    I expect this will cause a small amount of temporary confusion but less now than later, as this page is getting busier and busier. New people every day.

    What a awesome online radio station. Really i can pass a good time in online.

  5. Brent "KC Jones" Bomia Says:

    Thank you James Bluwolf for your new show;
    “Wolf Tracks” aired Sat’s from 2-4pm. The traditional stories you tell and the wisdom of Wolf Tracks could/should be aired in public school classrooms (maybe grades 2-6 ??)in northern CA. What a treat for the kids and the instructors alike it could be! :)
    @@@ !!keep up the great work James!! @@@
    – KC

  6. Judy Bond Says:

    Every time I listen to Wolf Tracks, I am enchanted. Broadcast LIVE on Wednesdays, 11AM-1PM; replays every other Saturday, like Brent said, above.

    WOW! Irreverence (singing group, LC’s own) played on outro of “Hell-bound in a Hand-basket” (between HBHB & Pup Talk 03/16/2015 approx. 7:59pm)…. That was AWESOME (loved that little Zepplin side-trip in the middle of the a cappella…whoa!). Can someone leave a copy @ station for other programmers to use (if that’s ok to do)?

  8. KC Jones Says:

    Nice to hear thee most corporate-rock-band in HISTORY, given a massive review on a community radio station. AC/DC; one of the first bands to make such a HUGE deal with Wally-World/Wallymart to sell their product (their music, and shirt/posters, etc…) and to spearhead anti-file sharing legislation through the RRIA (yeah, with Metallica as well)… Wanna keep the net free? Dont purchase AC/DC products. Then, the the host of the program sits back and destroys the “white man” … Uh, anyone say …Logic?

    As far as Im concerned; Wolf Tracks speaks for KPFZ 88.1FM… That host KNOWS what he’s doing!
    THANK YOU James Bluwolf! Your contributions to this station & it’s listeners will not (ever) fade away! Much love to you James, and continued success with your fantastical show!
    WOLF-TRACKS is one of the BEST (imo) music/talk programs on KPFZ 88.1fm.Plus the host is a hoot to hang out with… talk about a walking encyclopedia w/ regards to music, the scene, and Native-American affairs!It’s hard to beat this show in terms of music, knowledge, and an all around POSITIVE message.
    Thank you!
