Democracy Now!: Yemen: Saudi-Led Strikes Continue amid “Catastrophic” Situation
Warplanes from the Saudi-led coalition struck the Yemeni cities of Aden and Ibb early today despite a previous claim by Riyadh that it had ended its nearly month-long operation. Saudi officials said Wednesday they will limit their military role in Yemen but continue to respond to Houthi attacks. Human Rights Watch, meanwhile, reports Saudi Arabia appears to have deliberately bombed a humanitarian aid warehouse run by Oxfam that contained supplies to facilitate access to clean water for thousands of households. The International Committee of the Red Cross has warned the humanitarian situation in Yemen is “catastrophic.” Click here for the listen to the program

This is an eco-friendly, water conserving car wash. We’re using a high quality, BonAire non-wasteful hose nozzle and will of course be careful with our precious water. And remember that dozens of cars getting washed in one location is better than individual home washing!Together we’ll be keeping your machine clean and keeping the brilliant shine of people powered radio on the air and online.

This Sudsy Saturday special benefit will also feature a live broadcast starting at 1PM with (what else?) the “Car Show” with Art Gould and Dave Kunz, followed at 2PM by Bill Gardner who’ll be revving up “Rhapsody in Black.”

Plus we’ll have a guitar signed by all the members of Los Lobos that we’ll be raffling off and special guests will be dropping by and driving through.
So tune in to 90.7 FM or cruise down to 3729 Cahuenga Blvd. West in North Hollywood on Saturday, April 25th from 12:30 to 4:30pm in the KPFK parking lot for the KPFK Car Wash Fundraiser!
Cleaning products are being supplied by the Amazing Mother’s Car Care Company!

Thanks to the California Car Cover Co for supplying the BonAire Nozzle!

When you think about celebrating Earth Week, KPFK hopes you’re thinking of ways that you can reduce your environmental impact on the planet. Did you know that millions of tons of iron and steel enters the recycling stream because of how easy it is to separate from other materials? When you decide to donate your car, you’re not only doing something great KPFK, but you’re helping to take a car (or other vehicle) that may be producing harmful emissions off the road and into the steel recycling process. Click here for more information

TALES OF THE GRIM SLEEPER is a shocking investigation of Lonnie Franklin Jr., arrested in 2010 as the alleged perpetrator of a 25-year killing spree in South Central Los Angeles in which he may have murdered more than 100 victims – most of them young, African-American women marginalized by addiction and poverty. Critically acclaimed documentarian Nick Broomfield reveals the lack of action by the Los Angeles police force, who found the link between Franklin and the murders not through painstaking detective work, but by accident, and gives voice to a neglected community that has survived despite the odds, ultimately conveying a sense of grave injustice that extends well beyond this case. KPFK will host a free screening the premier night of April 27 with Margaret Prescod and Nick Broomfield.
