    Note in other places we mentioned about Pacifica’s WBAI-FM and their mismanagement.

    Now this stuff is talked about for the flagship KPFA and Pacifica’s corporate offices.

    The Crisis at Pacifica

     

    Pacifica has released a statement on the current situation.

    #179721

    The statement Bill Recto was kind enough to link to noted that people were “tuning-in and donating (to Pacifica’s KPFA-94.1) in droves during the Trump years”.

    If indeed that were the case, maybe Pacifica would have had enough $$$ to have prevented, or at least solved, this financial crisis.

    I think the key phrase there is “donating (To KPFA)”… WBAI is another story. That station is a hot mess and has been for some time, which is why they didn’t have the money to pay their bills. They’ve been renting that space at the Empire State Building since 9/11.

    Paying Off The Judgment

    Berkeley – This is a very happy update to send.

    Friends of Pacifica in Southern California have now secured bridge loan funds of $2 million dollars to pay off the summary judgment amount to the Empire State Building. An escrow account has been set up and full payment will follow shortly afterwards. Full payment of the  judgment due will remove the threat of asset seizure.

    Huge thanks to the Southern California community which worked together to locate the much-needed funds in record time.”

    What’s now WBAI went on the air 1n 1943 on the old FM band at 47.5, then moved to 98.5 and then 99.5 in 1947.
    They went on the air at the Empire State Building on the original Alford master antenna at 1223 feet, as one of the original stations in February 1966.
