Pacifica subcarriers were deregulated in 1983

Standard

When the subcarriers were deregulated in 1983, ours were marketed and leased for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subsidiary_communications_authority

“Subsidiary Communications Authorization” is the United States Federal Communications Commission‘s official designation for this type of service. SCA was deregulated in 1983; since then, both AM and FM licensed broadcast stations have been allowed to use subcarriers in the United States in general without requiring separate authority; authorization is only required for some uses which are still otherwise regulated, such as common carrier or Land Mobile Radio Service transmissions.[1] The fidelity (bandwidth) of SCA channels on FM is generally quite limited compared to that of the main program material.”Kpfktransmitter99%

This money went and goes, to our Foundation.

KPFK’s Lila Garrett (Connect the Dots show) background

Standard
Anne Meara and I won the Writers Guild Award together in 1983 for a TV movie called THE OTHER WOMAN. We not only co-wrote it, I produced it and Anne starred in it. She was “the other woman”. it was a romantic comedy in which Hal Linden, a man in his 50s marries a girl in her 20’s. They have so little in common he takes on a mistress his own age. Anne! It was a delightful romantic comedy, one of my favorite projects of all time. Later I directed her in ARCHIE BUNKER’S PLACE, (with Carol O’Connor) her first episode in that series. Great again! We remained close friends. Anne made everyone’s life richer. She had a great sense of humor, not only about the world, but about herself. She was a rare woman, loved by all who knew her. Good night sweet Anne. Lila

KPFK pending Local Station Board elections start June 15, ’15

Standard

Zuberi is ex officio as iGM, John P Garry is non-voting as secretary. Tej Grewall (staff) is chair, Jim Lafferty (staff) is vice-chair. I [Michael Novick] am treasurer. John Wenger, the longest currently serving member will term out in august and be replaced by one of the runners-up from the 2010 election (last one that achieved quorum). Elections will begin approximately June 15 with opening of nominations. Date of record for membership and close of nomination period is July 14. Candidates will be certified and campaign will begin by some time in August, we will be using e-voting this time to economize. The entire board is up for election this time, 18 listener and 6 staff seats because there was no quorum in 2012 and no election in 2013. So we will elect 8 listeners to a 3 yr term and 8 to a 1 year term (and have another election next year); ditto 3 staff to a 3 yr term and 3 to a 1yr term, with another election next year.

Correction: We will elect 9 listeners to one year terms, and 9 to three-year terms, not 8 each as I wrote in the original message (9+9=18 total listeners+6 total staff+24 members of LSB). Sorry, please correct it if you forward

KPFT was bombed off the air twice by the KKK, recognition

Standard

KPFT was bombed (for the first time) 45 years ago this week 5/11/15

kpfttransmitterblownup1970

Three Klansman were arrested in the bombing. Jimmy Dale Hutto of Pasadena, the only person to stand trial in the bombings, was arrested on his way to California, where he allegedly planned to blow up KPFT’s sister stations KPFA in Berkeley and KPFK in Los Angeles. Hutto was convicted in 1971 and sent to prison. The other two suspects testified for the government and never stood trial.

KPFK Manager

Standard

I have to say I’m appalled by the letting go of the manager at KPFK.  It’s not appropriate for this blog.  If you want further info please email me at 3rd1000Yrs@gmail.com
We toasted Zuberi Fields iGM on his departure, faces blurred because I don’t have their permissions now.
There were lots more but I couldn’t get everyone in to this picture, or this room.
