I am a Hypnotherapist with several Energy Medicine techniques, and a specialty in extreme trauma release of adult and childhood events and issues. My cases have included Domestic Violence, Chronic Pain, PTSD, and Rape Crises. Homeostasis and peace are achieved.
My major KPFK interests are the un-censoring of our programming to get more listeners; the complete restoration of the Local News Broadcast; and creating novel ways of fund-raising to solve our constant revenue shortage, forcing continual fund-drives, driving our listeners away, constituting a “KPFK Death-Spiral”.
This loss of listeners and members can only be caused by increasingly irrelevant KPFK programming, since KPCC has increased its listenership during this time, so we should examine their content to see if we should cover these topics.
Un-censoring our programming is crucial for restoring our lost listeners. Fewer listeners decreases our fund-drive revenues, meaning we must fund-drive for more days per year, now up to 95 budgeted days this fiscal year (more than 25% of the year), up from 30 days per year a few years ago.
In contrast, George Nouri on KFI gets 10 Million listeners per night, which is more than a 1000 times more per night. Nouri covers subjects that KPFK never covers (except during fund-drives, when we need money from our listeners). Nouri’s subjects include Alternative Health information, such as KPFK provides by Gary Null, but only at night. He also covers UFOs and ETs, which more than half of Americans have seen, or believe in.
We could increase our listeners by hundreds of times, and thus decrease our interminable fund-drives proportionally, by simply un-censoring our programming, and covering these forbidden topics all year long.
We should create a Spanish-only second channel to more fully serve Spanish speaking Listeners, and free up the Evening hours for the now-censored topics to be broadcast in English.
KPFK has not had a Local News Broadcast, since Sean Heitkemper, then GM, laid off most of the news department “for just a few months until we get through our current crisis”. That was eight years ago. Since then, Management has hired other people, but has not replaced the News Department personnel, leaving KPFK neutralized as a news source. We need to restore the entire News Department to serve our listeners.
I suggest that KPFK raise money by record musical artists in our Studio A, and selling the recordings as premiums sharing the profits equally;
