In a healthy political balance is Jack Wood's program, Informazine (Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m.) highlighting progressive political issues. Woods was the recipient of much press coverage in Harris County during the general election in 1976. "To make fun of phony politicians" he ran for the office of County Hide Inspector, after finding the antiquated statute on the books. He won by 320,000 more votes than were cast for Jimmy Carter in Harris County. His landslide victory may be attributed to the fact that he ran unopposed but he still claims to have pulled Carter in on his coattails. During the Women's Advocate Crisis of 1977, Woods appeared before City Council and presented them with the horse's ass trophy for their opposition to the Advocate's office and to its office holder. Before his KPFT days Woods was given an outlet for his opinion of bureaucrats and "limousine liberals" on the former all- news radio station, KLYX. Woods has been dabbling in politics for some time. "Today Harris County, tomorrow the world." Wild 'n Stein with Ray Hill and Friends, on KPFT for nearly four years, is the longest running gay radio program in the country. It is the only continuing gay program in Houston (Sundays, 10 p.m.-midnight). Host Hill utilizes a magazine type format on the program. The show provides listeners with varied segments of interest such as the Gay World Report and music of artists like Holly Near and Meg Christian. Periodically, Hill accepts calls on the air. "Sometimes we get real live honkies in the wild," he chuckled. Back in 1968 Hill met KPFT pioneers Larry Lee and Don Gardner who told him of plans for a new station for the community. "It sounded strange, but wonderful," Hill remembered. "In the early days (around 1970) I was known as the 'stamp man'." Hill acquired the stamps for KPFT's early mailing list of about 30 listeners. Hill served a prison sentence from October, 1970, to March, 1975. Upon his release, he was issued the standard 100 dollar check issued to people leaving the Texas Department of Corrections. Hill endorsed his to Pacifica. "I gave them the check the governor gave me to (supposedly) survive the rest of my life," he proudly said. Hill is the chair of the national March on Washington, D.C, planned for October 14 and is coordinator of the Houston planning committee for the march. He's the co-founder of the Houston Gay Political Caucus, "the largest single block vote in Harris County," according to Hill. A special five hour broadcast of Wild 'n Stein is being planned to mark the week of June 27, Gay Pride Week. One of KPFT's newest programs is Breakthrough on the Air (Fridays, 7-8 pjn.). The show has been in existence for about five weeks. "The program is an extension of some of the articles in Breakthrough newspaper," moderator Nancy Lane Fleming said. "I interview reporters who wrote the articles ^and they interview their sources. It is a call in show so listeners can take part in the interview." When asked to host Breakthrough on the Air, Fleming confesses to being afraid at first. "You have to be able to think on your feet and keep people on the subject." But after the first show, "I was completely taken. I loved it." The first show was an interview with Nikki Van Hightower soon after she was fired from her talk show on KTRH-Radio. "The story broke in the Houston Post that morning so the phones never stopped ringing. We ran the show into two hours," Fleming recalled. Other shows have dealt with stress, women attorneys defending rapists, the police policy of strip search, the situation of Iranian women under the Islamic regime and the firing of the all-women's cleaning crew at the Dow Chemical plant in Brazosport after the workers demanded better working conditions and job benefits. Previously an occasional listener to KPFT, Fleming now says "I listen to everything. KPFT has given me a lot of direction, something I never got from commercial radio." KPFT is truly Houston's one-of-a-kind radio station. The building, a two-story hodgepodge of curious nooks and crannies and poster-clad walls, usually is bustling with activity. "When I look at the people who pass through our door daily at 419 Lovett Boulevard, I realize that we are indeed beginning to reach a broader base of Houstonians who value and share in the goals of the listener-sponsored radio station," said Cluthe. As this reporter bid adieu to the station, a young business man passed through the door. He was greeted by a scampering puppy, affectionately known as Petey, and one of the staffers. The door swung shut as the visitor announced, "I'd like to volunteer." Happy Birthday, KPFT. Dan Bowen is Creative Services Director at KCOH-AM. The KPFT Radio Guide, Listen to a Different Perspective, is a monthly schedule of programming on the station. It is mailed to listeners who subscribe to the station for $5 or more per month. This revenue is the main source for KPFT's operating expenditures. To support KPFT's alternative programming, send your subscription to 419 Lovett, Houston 77006.
