The first quarter century of Pacifica Radio and KPFA is documented in this program produced by Larry Josephson, longtime staff member of WBAI in New York, and erstwhile producer of KPFA’s the Morning Show. Interviews with many personalities dating from KPFA’s earliest years are heard, including Joy Hill, widow of the station's founder Lewis Hill. Also included are reminiscences, evaluations, and perspectives of the people who made the station a voice for social, cultural, and artistic change. For an intimate profile of America’s first listener sponsored station, 1949-70, here is one dedicated producer’s perspective.
