Specialists in New Music have long been associated with KPFA’s Music Department, be it John Rockwell, Alan Rich, Robert Erickson, Glen Glasow, or Charles Amirkhanian. But for intensity of production and richness of quality no term at KPFA was more productive than that of former Music Director Charles Shere who’s tenure at the station lasted from 1965 to 1967. At the time of this recording Shere was the Music & Art critic for the “Oakland Tribune”, a position he held until retiring in 1988. A distinguished composer as well, Mr. Shere returned to the scene of his fruitful years of service at KPFA and talked with his successor as Music Director, Charles Amirkhanian, about his memories of his time at the station as well as his current work as a music critic in Reagan’s America. (from KPFA Folio)
