Radiolandia July 2014
As some Bay Area community radio stations continue to struggle with abrupt and puzzling programming changes KBBF expands its progressive English language public affairs schedule. Monday through Friday mornings at 10AM you can find Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman. (An hour earlier at 9AM you can hear the Democracy Now! headlines in Spanish.)
Thom Hartmann Show is aired Monday through Thursday for an hour starting at 2PM. It is currently the only non-commercial northern California broadcast of his show. Professor Richard Wolffe provides expert economic and political news, history and analysis with Economic Update which airs Tuesday from 11AM to noon.
Bobby Kennedy, Jr.’s Ring of Fire is broadcast on Wednesday and Friday from 11am to noon. It features the commentary of Mike Papantonio as well news of environmental issues and the surrounding politics.
KBBF’s broadcast of Project Censored with Peter Phillips is now the only one available in the northern Bay Area. The station’s signal from the top of Mt. Saint Helena is strong and reaches into 18 counties. It is broadcast Thursdays at 4PM.
KBBF’s mission is to create a strong multilingual voice that empowers and engages the community to achieve social justice through education, celebration of culture and local and international news coverage.
The station is a 100% volunteer operation with no paid staff. If you are not already supporting KBBF consider doing so by making a donation or becoming a member. You can do so here
