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:
February 10, 2014
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.
