Program Announcements

Tune in to The CyberSoulMan Review this Tuesday, November 24, 2015 between 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Tee Watts is broadcasting an interview with Hugh Masekela, the legendary South African trumpet/flugelhorn player.

According to

Hugh Masekela has an extensive jazz background and credentials, but has enjoyed major success as one of the earliest leaders in the world fusion mode. Masekela’s vibrant trumpet and flügelhorn solos have been featured in pop, R&B, disco, Afro-pop, and jazz contexts. He’s had American and international hits, worked with bands around the world, and played with African, African-American, European, and various American musicians during a stellar career. His style, especially on flügelhorn, is a charismatic blend of striking upper-register lines, half-valve effects, and repetitive figures and phrases, with some note bending, slurs, and tonal colors. … Masekela is capable of outstanding ballad and bebop work

The CyberSoulMan Review is repeated on Wednesdays from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Beginning tomorrow, Sunday Nov 8, at 2 pm, KPFZ (88.1 FM) will be providing a weekly program series in two parts: The first hour will cover progress for “long-term recovery” from the catastrophic fires of 2015 — especially but not exclusively the “Valley Fire.”

The second hour of this new program series will “discover” Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Response Planning. We will be working with local organizations, like Lake County Amateur Radio (LCAR) members, Spring Valley’s CERT volunteers, and Community-Based Systems of Care (CBSC) service providers (like Senior Support Services – Upper Lake, and The Essential Public Information Center).

All of the program/engineers are invited to sit in on future programs (contact Andy Weiss to schedule); next week’s program will be helmed by Nils Palsson — we will inaugurate the series with Andy Weiss on the board!

Please send your ideas, suggestions, preferences, and desires for content to Betsy Cawn — we haven’t named the new programs or selected “theme” music — and we want to include everyone who wants to join in on the continuation of outreach and education for our listeners and future listeners in Lake County and beyond.

    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.

  3. Robin Says:

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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. brent Says:

    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)?

  7. 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?
    KC Jones

  8. brent Says:

    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!

  9. Rhyschenda Says:

    Farewell to Chris. I was saddened to hear of the passing of long-time KPFZ supporter Chris Mallock. Not an on-air personality, but a vital part of our community from the very early days of the station. He will be missed by all who knew him. Via con dios.

  10. Doreen Dickson Says:

    I just donated to join your radio station so how do I log on to get your station as a member?

  11. Cathy Wilson Says:

    I haven’t heard enough radio people tell the public to stop bringing items to the evacuation centers. I’ve heard calls for volunteers, but no one is saying “STOP” with the donations- please help get the word out….

  12. Robert Stark Says:

    I heard a couple of points being discussed tonight, I’d like to comment on.

    1. Propane tanks don’t explode, unless faulty, they off-gas by a heat sync in the valve.

    2. The fuel load around the houses did not cause the devastation. The devastation was caused by a down blast of superheated air that caused spontaneous combustion, estimated to be 2000*, traveling at 40 MPH.

    3. There was a devil wind that day, and the fire was at the mouth of a steep canyon lined with vegetation. The moisture content of that fuel was at record lows, as was everything that got in its path made of wood.


    (With Robert’s permission I have changed some obvious typos : webmaster)

  13. Alan Fletcher (Web Master) Says:

    These comments aren’t a good place to discuss the fire in general, so I replied to Robert on the friends of cobb mountain facebook page

  14. Judy Bond Says:

    Comment #3 on this page is from me. In the last paragraph, please remove “can you buy cialis over the counter in australia” – not my words. Or, better still, remove the whole comment as it is now 20 months old and just clutter.

  15. Alan Fletcher (Web Master) Says:

    We’ve been hacked by the “cialis” ads. I’ve changed all the passwords, (including all the internal ones to our database) but they’re still getting in. (SQL injection?)

    Now that the emergency’s over I’m going to upgrade the whole site (at the risk of breaking it temporarily!).

  16. Ron Kiczenski Says:

    SOS! KPFZ needs new board members asap! If you want KPFZ to continue as the community radio station we have finally become over the past few weeks, then please come and serve your community as a KPFZ board member, thanks!

  17. Robert Leroy Parker Says:

    What might the proper discussions be in this place? That facebook link is at the least questionable. This is a radio station isn’t it? Maybe the most current posts should be on top

  18. Robert Leroy Parker Says:

    Hey Brent where did you go?

  19. Alan Fletcher (Web Master) Says:

    Hi, Robert. Yes, the comment system on this site isn’t very satisfactory. We’re looking into a major upgrade, but it won’t be soon. Meanwhile I’ll see if we can easily change the order.

  20. Says:

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick hads up. The text
