KPFA On the Air: Film screening and Panel on community radio
KPFA community radio began broadcasting in Berkeley, California in April, 1949. Founded by a group of World War Two pacifists, the station's ideal was to create peace through dialogue among those with differing world views,. Alan Watts, Langston Hughes, and Linus Pauling debated alongside Caspar Weinberger and folks from the John Birch Society. This documentary film traces the history of KPFA radio through the fifties McCarthyism, sixties anti-war efforts and civil rights struggles, all the way to contemporary KPFA staff and board clashes.
