In another segment from KPFA’s all day broadcast celebrating its 40th anniversary, Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of unusual “airchecks” (recordings made during a live broadcast), saved by KPFA producers during strategic moments. You will thrill to the sounds of Bill Schechner, who later went on to a career with NBC News, reading headlines from the wire services on April 1, 1978, complete with impertinent asides; Kris Welch in a confrontational interview with Wayne Dyer, author of “Your Erroneous Zones” on July 29, 1976; Shafi Hakim playing music on Thanksgiving Day, 1977; the inaugural program of Sue Donati’s sex show, “Not Tonight I Have a Headache” on December 2, 1977; San Francisco artist Doug Kahn’s radio collage, “The Alienatisch”, starring Bill Sokol; an excerpt from the 1984 “Vox Pop Verite” program, and many more fascinating highlights from 40 years of alternative, listener-sponsored radio.
