I haven't been able to pick up KPFA very well for years. Thirty years ago
I listened regularly, and could get a good signal here, but no more. I
still remember Chris Strachwitz shows - especially the one with Ry Cooder
- and will always be thankful for the day, on the way home from a Borland
roll-out over in SFO south territory, that I caught almost the entire
broadcast of Phillip Glass's "Akhnaten" - magnificent stuff to drive past
the Appian Way exit to. But the signal got worse over the years, and my
antenna eventually came down, and the unending inane politics of both sides
of the arcane debates over control of Pacifica and KPFA were too tiresome
to listen through the static to, and I gave up.
I also remember the Winter Soldier hearings from nearly 40 years ago -
when I was a GI anti-war activist and one of the editors of "Liberty Call",
the Concerned Officers Movement paper in San Diego (I was one of the first
two enlisted men to "integrate" that organization).
I find films like "No End In Sight" or "Taxi To The Dark Side", or Bill
Moyers' "Buying The War" make most points better to most folks - and as
one who remembers what Rusty Calley did I probably wouldn't be surprised at
anything coming out of the current round.
