Roots Music & Beyond: A Radio Show on KPFK: Voices of the FAR-West
October 14, 2021 @ 12:00 AM - October 16, 2021 @ 12:00 AM PDT
Well, wouldn’t ya know? It’s time for the FAR-West 2021 Virtual Conference (Oct 14-16, 2021). It’s a virtual online extravaganza of talent and we can’t let it slip by without a hearty send-off. Our show (Roots Music & Beyond: A Radio Show on KPFK: Voices of FAR-West) will be airing during the conference (THIS Saturday, Oct 16th, 6-8 AM on https://www.kpfk.org/) but for those who don’t know about it, there’s still time to get in on the action. If the brilliant poster below (designed of course, by the Arkansas genius Tom Pickles) doesn’t hook you, then just go to https://far-west.org/ and you’ll be amazed at the menu of musical morsels that are available.
Oh yes, October is also a fund drive month but we promise to be gentle in our endless quest to keep the lights on at KPFK. Mary Katherine Aldin will be joining me in the latter part of the second hour…how lucky can a person get? Oh yes, I forgot…BOO!
