Unpatriotic without President's
Yes, "conservative viewpoints fill the
air," and "San Diegans can't seem to get enough..."
There are a lot of greedy, mean-spirited people around whose
policies wrecked our economy, destroyed our job base and natural
resources and turned us from a wealthy nation into a debtor nation.
But they aren't the only San Diegans. Some
of us are decent, tolerant and patriotic. We'd rather listen
to our elected president's weekly radio speech to the nation
than rabid bigots. But you list the bigots and don't list the
president. I listen to the president Saturday mornings on AM
radio. He comes on around 9; and I twist the dial to find it
as I'm not sure what station. There's also a liberal show on;
but as you accidentally listed it, I won't name it as you'd probably
delete the listing.
There is a real need for your publication,
and if you weren't so un-American and unpatriotic that you refuse
to list an elected president, I'd subscribe.

Congratulations on starting Radio San Diego! I was wondering
when someone would publish a radio guide!

More KFSD Info
Enjoyed your first magazine, especially the
classical music story of Haas and the brief schedule of KFSD.
Maybe KFSD could do better next time with a regular feature of
more pieces they'll play. Jay Scott
Thanks for good stuff
Thank You! Finally, the San Diego area has
a radio schedule which not only presents the diverse programming
available on a daily basis but does it in a style which is easily
read and understood. I have long wondered why I could find radio
schedules in the L. A. Times and the Orange County Register but
not in the local San Diego media.
First, some information regarding reception
and stations available on cable systems should be considered
for upcoming issues. For example, I live in North County and
no matter how hard I try I don't believe that I will ever be
able to receive KSDS and that's really a shame because of the
fine jazz and blues programming it airs. Also, for your information
Cable Radio Network(CRN) is presented via cable TV companies,
usually on the local information channel. Two good programs are
on Tuesday nights. The King Cotton show is from 7 to 9 P.M. and
Billy Vera's Rock and Roll Party is on from 9 to 10:30 P.M. But,
my biggest beef with radio, especially "community radio"
is that there are not enough live concerts broadcast of blues,
jazz, rock, country or classical music. For example, why doesn't
KIFM broadcast some of the shows they "sponsor" in
the Humphrey's by the Bay series? In other words, present the
music of the "community" to the community!
KPCC in Pasadena has for a few years presented a delayed broadcast
of the Santa Monica Pier Summer Dance Series concerts every summer.
The concerts are free and the delayed broadcast allows even a
wider audience to enjoy the shows. Other prime candidates for
local broadcast would be the Street Scene shows, the Del Mar
fair, and all other jazz festivals, blues festivals, etc. Every
year, the Chicago Blues Festival is presented in its entirety
by local radio stations. I wish you the greatest success.
