Quotes

"Community radio is where civil society speaks its mind about issues both local and global. Public, civic discourse is the essence of democratic behavior, and has been stifled by the current KRFC management. We are lesser, more impoverished for this change;"
- Sally Miles


"KRFC was founded as a democratically run station. This was very clear. What was unclear is what exactly that meant. Everybody had an opinion, volunteers, members and board. Instead of discussing this in an open manner, the board instead hired a manager who ended the discussion for them and sealed the station into what could be called a shotgun consensus model."
- Eddie Arthur, 2007, in the library > important letters


"Dialogue is a conversation between adults the outcome of which is unknown."
-Martin Buber


"The workings of KRFC have truly become a nightmare for anyone interested in a community radio station run in a democratic manner, or to be precise, "a community radio station that is listener supported and democratically managed." That's from the KRFC Mission Statement. [The] recent e-mails from the Station Manager and the President of the Board of Directors reveal, in my opinion, obvious violations of the KRFC Mission Statement."
- Jeff Rowan, 2005, in the library > important letters


"Grassroots radio fosters democracy, both in its programming and its governance."
from The Grassroots Radio Movement in the U.S.
- Marty Durlin, Cathy Melio
"It seems essential to first define what is meant by the terms "democracy" and "accountability" Here's what it means to me: (what does it mean to you?)
  1. The people affected by a decision are the ones who make it
  2. People who are doing work decide how they do that work.
  3. People doing work on behalf of others must be accountable to those others, and work on behalf of the needs of others as well as their own.


- Lyn Gerry, a founder of the FreePacifica movement in the mid 90's
