Give to KPFA, get this premium

If you like my radio show, Behind the News, then please give some money to KPFA, which in the closing days of a fund drive. I wouldn’t do the show if it weren’t for KPFA, and they’ve been very generous in giving me not only a show but one in a nice timeslot. For a pledge of $75, you can get a CD containing 37 interviews I’ve done since 2002. The CD is a collection of MP3 files, not an audio CD, to you can’t pop it into every CD player. But it’s a lot of stuff, and it makes me feel good to look over the list.

Pledge to KPFA here:
