RAY EDLIN_x000D_ – KPFA-FM – PIG IN A  PEN
Not much to report…kpfa is basically in shutdown mode with most programmers producing shows from home studios. I’ve only done a fund raiser and two other live shows lately. Since many of my shows feature live guests/ bands am unable to do those now. However, either an archived show or something similar is still on the schedule. 

TOM DIAMANT_x000D_ – KPFA-FM – PANHANDLE COUNTRY
There is a time for dance all night with a bottle in your hand and a time_x000D_ for true life blues. In these difficult and troubling times, it’s even more 
important to be to be conscious of the origin, meaning, and feeling of every_x000D_ song I play on the radio.
