Thom, Another sad story here in Reno, NV, we lost our only Progressive Radio Station KJFK. Now we don't get to hear YOU, Stephanie Miller, Ed Shultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman, Mike Pap. Too many times I hear how Republicans always complain that there are too many liberal stations, but I see the that there are too many Right wing stations. I hope we can get another one back. :(

from the KJFK web site:

Important Announcement

As of March 18th, “AM with I.Q., 1230 KJFK” will no longer be on-the air.

KJFK recently passed the mark of 8 years as Northern Nevada’s only voice of the Progressive viewpoint. A lone voice apart from other radio stations in Reno airing views, information and attitudes from those who hold a Conservative ideology, and by the way, in competition with us for the ears of people interested the issues so vital to our country.

Given the volume of rhetoric dispensed on-air from “the other side”, we felt it vital to remain on-the-air through the 2012 General Election, despite the fact that KJFK has operated at a loss of thousands of dollars a month. Since we launched the station with an appearance by Al Franken in 2005, when nearly 500 people joined us at the Atlantis for now Senator Franken's appearance just days after we hit the air, we’ve known a passionate audience has been with us all along. Unfortunately, this station was never able to generate the revenue necessary to sustain, and we simply cannot absorb the financial loss any longer.

This current webpage will soon be gone, but replaced with a new page featuring an online player that offers a line-up of some of the shows KJFK has been honored to bring you through the years. You can access these programs on your computer or mobile device. Many of the hosts offer podcasting at their websites. If possible, support the hosts themselves by subscribing. In any case, please continue to seek out truth you may not be offered courtesy other over-the-air talk forums. Please take a moment to explore the online player here. We will continue this new page at our current websitewww.1230kjfk.com for the foreseeable future.

Through this online source, you can access the passion of Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Bill Press, Mike Malloy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and others. Below, you’ll find links to your favorite shows that may not be offered on the new player. Thank you.

We welcome your comments at 823-1944, ext 204. Thank-you again for listening.

How To Bring Back A Middle Class

Thom plus logo From the 1930s to the Reagan Revolution, America grew the largest and most robust middle class in history. Along with strong unions, the main driver of that was that people earning more than about $10 million in today's money confronted a top tax rate of 91% until the 60s, and 67% until Reagan came into office.
