KBCS blossoms additional programs!


April 18, 2024 - 1:56 pm

Spring brings with it fresh beginnings, and KBCS is thrilled to introducing a few new series of educational and cultural programs chosen to inform, educate, and offer a more structured forum for a debate of the prominent issues and topics of the day.

KBCS Springs New Programs

Series One: began a few weeks ago adding programs to the 12 noon to 1pm schedule:

Mondays – Philosophy Talk, a program that challenges listeners to identify and question their assumptions and to think about things in new ways. 

Tuesday – The Commonwealth Club of California. For over 90 years, one of the largest and oldest public affairs forums in America, presenting distinguished speakers sharing their experiences and ideas in a nonpartisan forum that strives to bring more balanced viewpoints and a serious commitment to “stick to the facts.” 

Wednesday – The City Arts & Lectures Series, features leading figures in the world of arts and ideas in literature, criticism, science, and the performing arts. 

Thursday – Open to Debate, seeks to restore balance to the public square through expert moderation, good-faith arguments, and reasoned analysis on topics of science, technology, politics, culture, and global affairs. 

Fridays – rounds off the week with Travel with Rick Steves.  A cultural program hosted by Pacific Northwest’s Rick Steves, featuring great conversations with special guests and travel experts.

Series Two: this week KBCS set 7am programs with a repositioning and reinvigorating these programs: 

Monday – Alternative Radio – established in 1986, this award-winning weekly one-hour public affairs program provides information, analyses, and views that are frequently ignored or distorted in corporate media. Hosted by David Barsamian.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – Hard Knock Radio – a drive-time Hip-Hop talk show produced in the Bay Area hosted by Davey D and Anita Johnson.

Friday – Yes! presents: Rising Up with Sonali – a weekly program, broadcasting an antidote to the doom and gloom of mainstream news, lifting up solutions that bring us closer to economic, racial, gender, and environmental justice.  Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
