KPFT is a community-based, commercial-free radio station
that has chosen not to accept corporation underwriting.
Therefore, in order to bring you Irish Aires & all the
other diverse music & talk show programs that are on the

financial support.

Your contribution, along with others in the community, help
KPFT and Irish Aires stay on the air in an ever increasing
world of consolidated, homogenized media. Your
contribution (at a minimum level) also entitles you to a
membership in KPFT. Members have the right to run and vote
for the Board of Directors who manages KPFT and the other 4
Pacifica radio stations.

In return for your support, Irish Aires provides the

a) Weekly Irish/Celtic programming live on KPFT (90.1FM

lots of people to contribute what they can. Please
consider giving us your financial support.

If you can give more, we have been the beneficiaries of
some Irish/Celtic music CDs that we would like to give you
in return for a $60 contribution (even if you can only
afford to pay it out at $5 per month). See details of

But it is more important for you to contribute, no matter
what the amount. Wide-spread, small contributions give our
station support from the community of people who appreciate
our programming and internet information.

We have some thank you gifts for contributions. If you can
contribute at the $60 level you will get one of the
following CDs. If you can contribute at the $90 level, you
will get two of the following. (Availability of individual
