KPFZ occasionally puts on fundraising events such as concerts and yard sales. We also have tables at community events, get together socially, and of course we hold meetings to discuss station business. These events offer entertainment, a chance to meet your favorite programmer, and opportunities to support KPFZ. Here’s a list of what’s happening:

16th Annual Homelessness Marathon


the bum16th Annual Homelessness Marathon Consciousness-Raising Radio Broadcast. Live from Brattleboro, VT: Wednesday, February 19th

The 16th Homelessness Marathon will originate from Brattleboro, VT on the night of Wednesday, February 19th. With this broadcast, we will be returning to our original nighttime format, airing a six hour broadcast from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., EST.

The Homelessness Marathon will once again bring the voices of homeless people into America’s homes. “I wish we could get their bodies inside too,” comments Jeremy Weir Alderson, the broadcast’s founder, “but we’re doing the best thing we can, by showing America why this problem should be, can be and must be solved.”

The broadcast, which has previously originated from Detroit, Kansas City, and Katrina-ravaged Mississippi, among other places, features live discussions with homeless people. It is a rare opportunity to see life through their eyes. The broadcast even takes calls, so people in their homes can talk with homeless people on the streets.

The 16th Annual Homelessness Marathon will start at 7 p.m., EST. Wednesday, February 19, 2014 and will run for six hours until 1:00 a.m. Its audio signal will be available for free to all radio stations over the Public Radio Satellite System, the Pacifica Ku-band and Pacifica’s Audioport. Live video of the broadcast will be carried by Free Speech Television (FSTV), starting at 8:00 p.m., EST on Feb. 19th. FSTV has channel 9415 on the Dish Network and channel 348 on DirecTV as well as a webcast.

    Hi KPFZ – I was wondering if playlists are available for your recently-played shows. There was some stuff played last night on Eclectic Echoes (Aug 3, night) that I’d really like to follow up on. Great show, I’d like to meet the dj sometime.

    I would like to know the song list of a show that aired on Sunday Aug. 17, 2013 at around 11:30 am. A hillbilly sounding dj playing unusual and unheard songs.

    Thank you,

    Why don’t you post your events on here (IE: yacht club seafood extravaganza)? I see that you do on facebook sometimes but many don’t use facebook.

  4. Judy Bond Says:

    Looks like no one is answering the mail.

  5. Judy Bond Says:

    What was the date of the 2009 Funathon fund-raiser? I am updating the station’s Facebook page and trying to caption the photos.

  6. Judy Bond Says:

    To Commenter #2: The program you probably heard is Old Okie’s Trading Post, broadcast on Saturdays 11:00-1:00 except for the last Saturday of the month when it is The Buckarooman Show. There is nothing on Sundays that fits your description.

    KPFZ Benefit –
    Grand Opening – Lake County’s Only Jazz Club: Friday the 7th of February is when it all happens. From 7 pm to 10 pm, at 5570 Live Oak Drive in Kelseyville, experience an intimate evening in the newly transformed banquet room of the Live Oak Grill. Art and mood lighting provided by local artist, and KPFZ programmer, Bob Blackmoore.
    The Jim Leonardis Quartet will perform Jazz for dancing. The band features Jim Leonardis on tenor sax and clarinet, keyboardist Paul Kemp, bassist David Ferrario, and drummer Lynn Clark. A Spanish Tapas seven course dinner will be prepared by Marcie Ann Long and Dennis “Pop” Booth, KPFZ music programmers.
    If you’re a musician in Lake County looking to meet other musicians, where do you go? Pop’s Jazz Club was envisioned by Pop and Dennis “Doc” Bilardi, both DJs for KPFZ 88.1 FM community radio as a place for artists to gather and share ideas to strengthen our local music and arts community.
    You may have seen Kemp perform with Machiko, in the jazz duo, Majide. You may have seen Leonardis play with Tom Aiken as the Rural Jazz Project at a Lake County Live event at the Soper-Reese Community Theatre, but you’ve never seen them sound like this.
    The sound system was installed by Mondo Sound of San Francisco, who provided equipment and sound engineers to the DNA Lounge for 15 years, in addition to installations in many San Francisco nightclubs, including Slim’s, Bimbo’s, and the I-Beam.
    This event is a benefit for KPFZ 88.1 FM community radio. Call (707) 245-7532 or (707) 994-4373 or to reserve tickets. Only 50 tickets are available at $20 for KPFZ members, $25 for non-members. Membership forms available at the door.
    Another jazz club event is in the works for March. Contact Suzanne at or (707) 994-4373 if interested in performing.
