Online Streaming Ended on January 31st

Ellen H (Editor in Chief)

KPFZ Management has announced that online streaming ended on January 31, 2016.  According to the KPFZ Board of Directors President Chloe Karl station staff are currently exploring other avenues to restore online streaming.

If you do want to help prevent this to happen, check out the Future of Music Coalition’s post on This is an organization attempting to get reasonable webcasting fees that will not force small community radio stations like KPFZ to stop streaming their shows.

From the Future of Music Colation’s post on Action Network’s website:

We support fair and transparent payment to artists and rightsholders when their work is used. We also recognize that small webcasters are vitally important to musical culture, whether it’s small community FM stations or online webcasters who program niche music. Webcasting reflects far greater diversity—from cutting edge releases by contemporary artists to America’s rich and varied musical traditions. And unlike commercial FM, internet radio pays musicians and labels. The relationship between artists and small webcasters is mutually supportive. This dynamic must be preserved. The expiration of the Webcaster Settlement Act has left many small webcasters facing a steep increase in rates and unsure of their future survival. We’re optimistic that a solution can be found to allow many small commercial webcasters to continue to operate, important music played and artists paid—directly, transparently and fairly. Stay tuned for updates and opportunities to take action. For now, please sign up to be notified of the latest developments.

Valley Fire Documentary Seeks Survivors

Ellen H (Editor in Chief)

Do you know anyone whose life was impacted by the 2015 Valley Fire, and who also found help from KPFZ?

A filmmaker from Boston is seeking stories of those who shared our radio experience during those fateful weeks in September and October, when KPFZ was a primary source of information to survivors and supporters throughout Lake County.

If you know of anyone or would like to participate in creating a dynamic picture of how our community came together through the airwaves, contact Betsy Cawn at 707-275-9376 or via email at
