Change is in the air! Or should it be, Change is on the air! Either way you say it, the KPFZ program schedule is going through some changes.
First off, a HUGE THANK YOU to Tim Hoff. Tim Hoff, most recently programmer for “Eclectic Echoes” and “Easy Rollin'”, has left the building. We thank him for his many years with KPFZ and all that he did. Tim filled many roles at the station during his tenure here. We wish him well in any future endeavors.
On Friday mornings, a repeat of “Pagan World Views”, hosted by Willowoak, Macha, and Verge, will be airing from 5:00 to 7:00 a.m.
A brand new show is making its debut on Friday night at 11:00 p.m. Peter Tibbets is hosting “The Wicked Good Show” until 3:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. If you’re a night owl, Peter’s name may sound familiar. That’s because Peter has filled in as host on Verge’s show Up All Night, heard every Tuesday night.
“Rockin’ the Lake” will repeat after Peter’s show from 3:00 to 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. Q and Deb will keep you rockin’ on!
Saturday morning officially kicks off with a repeat of Debbie Bielenberg’s show, the “Savings and Trust” starting at 5 a.m.
Folkscene is rejoining the station with the original show airing on Saturday evenings from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. It will be rebroadcast on Monday mornings from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Station Manager Andy Weiss says, “Things will be a bit chaotic for a while – just to drive Judy Bond, KPFZ Facebook Editor, nuts!”.

Future meeting – August 24, 2016 at 6:15 p.m.Comments Off on Monthly Board of Directors Meeting on July 27, 2016
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 www.actionnetwork.org. 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.Comments Off on Online Streaming Ended on January 31st
