After I stayed with him for a week or so, I got my own apartment. I knew nobody else in Los Angeles. Late, one Saturday night, I was flipping around the radio dial and hit upon KPFK, a Pacifica station, which was playing music by Harry Parch. I was hooked.
Over the years, I learned much more from Pacifica, than from my university education. I have supported Pacifica over the years, but its recent course pains me a great deal.
We can joke about the nonsense of the clowns that have hijacked the network, but the decline of the network is far more destructive than the election of a handful of tea party zealots.
