Productive LAB meeting in Houston

From: Jones

At a packed meeting tonight (2/6/02) of the KPFT LAB that was attended by over 200 listeners, the new General Manager of KPFT, Duane Bradley, was announced. Duane briefly addressed the crowd remarking that change was inevitable but he hoped that everyone would participate in shaping the future direction of the station.

There was some LAB business that included passing a motion encouraging the new GM to return fired and banned programmers (including George Reiter formerly of Thresholds). Then Lyn Gerry, visiting Houston for the day, addressed the crowd giving background and context for the struggle to reclaim Pacifica.

The meeting closed with public comment and breakout into two subcommittees (programming and governance) that were open to all attendees. Most current (and many past) programmers from KPFT attended the meeting and participated in the conversation with board members and listeners.
