Yes, we're asking for donations . . . but in a quiet way. During our end of the year Quiet Campaign, there'll be no interruptions in your favorite music or talk shows, but we invite you to make an end of year, tax-deductible donation to KPFT, quickly and securely on-line.
As of December 16, 151 people have answered the call, donating over $19,000 in the Quiet Campaign. We'd love to get over the $35,000 mark before the New Year rings in. If you can help, click this link to the donation page, and thank you for supporting your community radio station.

episode 2: 31 Dec 2013
The Power of Journaling to Heal the Human Mind
life is filled with events — from the common to the spectacular — that
make up your own unique story. When you record the memories of these
events, along with your thoughts, feelings and insights about them, you
weave a tapestry imbued with the colors and texture of your personal
history that enlighten you to who you really are.
In this edition
of Soul Sessions we will discuss the work of starting and keeping a
journal and how it can positively impact the lives of people to gain a
greater knowledge of themselves.
KPFT relies on the hard work and dedication of its volunteers! Volunteers are needed to staff events like concerts, speeches, fundraisers, and outreach.
If you're handy, join us on select Saturday mornings to pitch in with facility upkeep. Most programmers and committee members are volunteers here too. Your energy and positive attitude helps keep non-commerical radio on the air!
If you have any questions or concerns please call Betty Pringer, Membership Coordinator at 713-526-4000 ext. 314.
Get On The Air With Open Journal
Weekdays 9:30 am
Think you might have a good idea for a
radio program? Put your peace & justice
message on FM radio for thousands to hear with our daily community
access segment. Or tune in every day to connect with yet another aspect of what's happening in Houston.
KPFT has immediate openings for programming on its HD3/web streaming grid on Mondays (1-5 p.m.), Tuesdays (11 a.m.-5 p.m.) and Fridays (1-3 p.m.).
Our HD3/web streaming channel is KPFT's pioneering schedule offered to online listeners and owners of HD Radios. As the only Pacifica radio station broadcasting in HD, KPFT features for HD Radio owners our regular FM stream with fuller sound on HD1, Rice Radio on HD2 and local programming on HD3. Don't own an HD Radio? No problem. KPFT's web player gives listeners access to programming on HD3.
Throughout the day we air short announcements that help our listeners find out about events, community resources, or issues affecting the health and safety of the public. Typically 60 seconds, these PSAs must be non-commercial in nature and consistent with the overall mission of KPFT and the Pacifica Foundation.
Houston's diverse communities represent more than the cardboard capitalist consumer the system would have us become. We simply refuse to give up fighting on issues important to us and our future. If you're not involved, the first step towards change is showing up and adding your efforts. Let's all come together and make waves! If you are organizing a progressive or creative event you don't see listed here, submit it by emailing our Calendar Curator!
