Feds seize $305k from KPFA bank account. 10 positions to be laid off (4 of the ~31 FTE). Audio of Th8Dec2022 PNB

[UPDATE: the audio of this meet still not available from Pacifica as of 1400 MT, Su11Dec. The last audio of the PNB at https://kpftx.org/archive.php is Th10Nov (sic) – so missing are the last three: Th17Nov, Th1Dec, & Th8Dec. (The gap was when the world, aka ‘USA! USA! USA!’, including PacificaWorld, stopped to celebrate betrayal, occupation, sociéticide, & genocide.) In the last 4wks, since M14Nov, a total of 26 public meets (sic) have no audio – for reason of style, they’re listed at the end.]


Here’s the audio of the PNB meet when they chose not to speak plainly. Pathetic. https://mega.nz/file/lYFERALZ#ecpJb1GvJylRK97NRsiBfBKwASvDEpVTVzrFGqd7wZM

(Posted here coz these days one never knows when anything goes up at https://kpftx.org/archive.php – if at all.)

Notes re subsequent posting of audios at https://kpftx.org/archive.php:

[You may have noticed that KPFA is the only station with an exemplary record – it had no meetings!

[As of Su11Dec, for the 4wk period, only 8 public meets have audio; so 23.52% ≃ 24% (8 ÷ 34). And that’s excluding the 2 community advisory board meets in the period (KPFK & WBAI [UPDATE: one was subsequently posted, per note #1 above]), none having audio (so much for helping peeps acquaint themselves with the mores of the proceedings, & perhaps volunteering to join a CAB).

[Given that the © at the website hosting the Pacifica calendar & meetings archives is not in Pacifica’s name, but that of an individual (sic), this is another example of market failure. The “Copyright ©2014,2021 by Otis Maclay All Rights Reserved” is that of someone who has worked for Pacifica since the 19th century, as either an employee or contractor. It is risky for an organisation, especially one that talks about transparency, to place its material historical record in private hands. Will a local station board or director sleepwalker ever ask the PNB to explain in writing the origin & nature of this risky arrangement? How much is it costing the members & other donors? But I guess it ensures that Mr Mac always gets paid, & never joins the list of Pacifica creditors.]
