The Role of Federal Funding in KRCB’s Budget
There has been much discussion lately about the significance of Federal funding in public broadcasting’s ability to serve our communities with high quality non-commercial telecommunications services. A quick snapshot of the KRCB budget will hopefully help you, our faithful member, understand the importance of this funding source. In the combined budgets of KRCB Television and Radio, the community provides some 50% of our income through membership, business sponsorships of programs, and donations of goods and services to our auctions. We bring in another 13% through our entrepreneurial activities such as Activists protest proposed cuts in spectrum lease, tower lease, etc. The annual grant from the funding for Public Broadcasting Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the organization through which Federal funding is distributed, comprises fully 25% of our budget. (The balance comes through foundation grants and in kind contributions.) In other words, that Federal support is an extremely critical compliment to our community support. Without that funding, there is absolutely no question that KRCB would be forced to cut program services and the staff providing those services. It may interest you to know that the Federal contribution nationally amounts to $1.35 per American per year. Incidentally, this is a fraction of the investment that other industrialized countries make in their public broadcasting systems. For instance, South Korea invests $8.19 per capita, while Japan invests $58.86 per person to insure an informed, engaged populace. Public broadcasting sits at the dawn of a new era of communications. The importance of maintaining viable non-commercial, educational public media in a democracy, which is of necessity based on an informed citizenry, is abundantly clear. This importance is highlighted even further as we consider the retrenchment of other media source such as newspapers. Now is not the time to be considering downsizing this critical institution in which the American public has invested so much over the past 50 years and in which the citizens of this country place the highest trust and confidence.

Support KRCB and save income taxes to start off 2011
Age 70 ½ IRA Charitable Distributions are back, thanks to the December 17th tax legislation
This means you can support KRCB once again through the reinstatement of IRA Charitable Distributions. IRA owners age 70 ½ or older who do not need the taxable income from their Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) can make a donation directly to KRCB. This will avoid paying taxes on the RMD that could put you into a higher tax bracket or even the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax). The “surprise benefit” in the new tax law allows an extra month to make 2010 IRA Charitable Distributions. Gifts to KRCB up to $100,000 that are made before January 31, 2011 can be identified as a 2010 distribution. IRA owners can then make an additional $100,000 IRA Charitable Distribution in 2011 and avoid paying taxes on their 2011 RMD. Here are the details: 1. You must be at least age 70 ½ when the IRA distribution is made. 2. Maximum distribution is $100,000 and will satisfy the RMD for the year. 3. Married couples ages 70 ½ or older may each make the maximum distribution of $100,000 on each of their IRAs. 4. The tax savings is realized by not having the taxable RMD included in your Adjusted Growth Income. (There is no tax deduction for the distribution.) 5. You have until the end of January 2011 to make a distribution from your IRA for the tax year 2010. 6. Only for IRA not 403b or 401k and must be a direct transfer from IRA custodian As always, check with your professional advisors before taking action. And thank you for considering a gift to KRCB as part of your financial support. Dear Member, Several months ago I told you about a budding partnership between KRCB and local plein air artist, Annie Murphy Springer. Annie approached us with an offer to produce a watercolor show for KRCB to air and to send to other PBS stations as well. Well, I have to tell you that, over the years, many folks have come to us with excellent ideas. But pulling together the money, the team, and getting the job done is a much bigger undertaking than most of those folks recognize. Not so Annie. But then, y’all who know her recognize Annie as a force of nature. She has pulled off this amazing feat and produced, with her fantastic producer Seth, a series of seven short form television programs on the Wonders of Watercolor. The shows are really wonderful. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the effort. Tune in at 1:28 on Saturday afternoons to catch them. They are airing elsewhere in the schedule as well, but for sure on Saturday afternoon. Partnerships with our community. That’s how it works at KRCB. Sincerely, Nancy Dobbs President and CEO

Jail, No Bail
At the October 1960 Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) strategy conference in Atlanta, some activists argue for “Jail-No-Bail” tactics. They take a Gandhian position that paying bail or fines indicates acceptance of an immoral system and validates their own arrests. And by serving their sentences, they dramatize the injustice, intensify the struggle, and gain additional media coverage. There is also a practical component to “Jail-No-Bail.” The Movement has little money and most southern Blacks are poor. It is hard to scrape up bail money, and sit-in struggles are faltering—not from lack of volunteers to risk arrest—but from lack of money to bail them out. Moreover, paying fines provides the cops with financial resources that are then used to continue suppressing the freedom struggle. By refusing bail, they render meaningless the no-money-for-bail barrier and by serving time they put financial pressure on local authorities who have to pay the costs of incarcerating them. Sunday, February 6 at 11 pm

Three Distinct Voices on WordTemple
This month on WordTemple, Bob Hicok (rt), associate professor of English at Virginia Tech, talks with host Katherine Hastings about the sources of inspiration for the poems in his latest book, Words For Empty and Words For Full, including what is called “The Virginia Tech massacre”—a shooting that took place on campus in 2007 in which 32 people were killed or wounded. John Hart (left) discusses his late father, the poet, teacher and critical maverick Lawrence Hart, who developed a general theory of poetry and a specific method for helping people acquire what he felt were essential skills employing “direct sensory reporting,” “double images” and more. His circle of poets was sometimes referred to as “Activist” poets because of their credo that poetic intensity must be maintained throughout a poem. Fred Ostrander, who developed his poetic skills in Lawrence Hart’s circle, reads poems from his latest book, Petroglyphs. “Ostrander is one of those poets of whom accomplished poets say, ‘I wish I could write like that.’”—John Hart Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 7 pm

Who are these daring performers? They include Marianne Faithfull (rt), Rod Stewart, Joan Baez, Rotary Connection, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Hear them and more when Flashback gets under the covers with the Rolling Stones on Tuesday, February 1 at 7 pm

Musical Celebrations in February
Gregg Allman – Low Country Blues Gregg Allman’s new CD was produced by T Bone Burnett with Dr. John on piano, guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, bassist Dennis Crouch and drummer Jay Bellerose. Rounder Records’ Brad Paul talks with Gregg about the new album and how the blues shaped his career. Allegra Broughton and Doug Jayne feature more country blues. Wednesday, February 16 at 8 pm Simon and Garfunkle A look back at Simon and Garfunkle’s Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Saturday, February 19 at 1 pm Rosanne Cash – The List Just in time for Johnny Cash’s birthday For her latest album, The List, Rosanne Cash brought her contemporary sound to the list of classic country songs her father made for her in her teens. This project pays tribute in equal parts to Johnny Cash’s legacy as a father and mentor, the timeless songs that influenced his own career, the legendary songwriters who originally brought them to life, and the many artists who have recorded them over the years. Rosanne Cash tells us how each of those factors inspired her own recordings. The List won the Americana Music Association Album of the Year last year and a 2011 Grammy Nomination for Best Americana Album. Tuesday, February 22 at 8 pm Bob Marley’s Last Concert Bob Marley’s last concert was at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on 9/23/80. Join us for an hour of live music and stories from the show, along with music from the 30th anniversary concert held last September at the same theater. And Rita, Damien, and Rohan Marley talk about his philosophy and influential moments from his life. Songs include Exodus, Could You Be Loved, Redemption Song, No Woman, No Cry and more. Host, Jon Langford, is the frontman for The Mekons and the Waco Brothers. Friday February 25 at 8 pm Bob Dylan – Early Days When Bob Dylan arrived in New York City in the early 1960’s, he didn’t just alter the course of folk music, he helped change the way the music business worked in general. Dylan achieved this by merely doing what he does best—writing and singing his own songs. The popularity of his music took care of the rest. Join us to hear some of Bob Dylan’s early demo recordings and songs from his albums as they were first heard on AM radio—in Mono! Wednesday, February 23 at 8 pm & Saturday, February 26 at 1 pm
KRCB Radio FM 91 honors Black History Month
Ruby Elzy: Black Diva of the Thirties In the year 2000, soprano Ruby Elzy was one of the first inductees into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame.

These are stories of black pioneers, self-made men and self-taught women, neighborhood heros and visionaries. Wednesday, February 23 at 7 pm Truckin’ My Blues Away Boo Hanks from Virgilina, VA; Captain Luke from Winston-Salem, NC; Eddie Tigner from Atlanta; and Little Freddie King from New Orleans.

KRCB Volunteer of the Month
When Lloyd McNair found himself out of a job in 1992, he took a friend’s advice of a friend and went to the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County. There he found a listing for help in KRCB’s production department; before long he was the person responsible for turning on the transmitter every morning, waiting for it to warm up, and then flipping the “on” switch to air Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, and morning yoga. This was a significant responsibility for a volunteer and Lloyd was quickly recognized for his dependability. After a few years of being alone in the master control room, Lloyd asked for a volunteer position that would bring him into more contact with people. He was given the opportunity to assist with KRCB’s live auctions where he has worked as a host, technical director, and most recently as a camera operator/trainer. What is it that keeps Lloyd coming back, year after year, to volunteer at KRCB? He jokes that it is the gourmet food donated by local restaurants to feed our volunteers during auction, but the real reason is that Lloyd enjoys meeting and talking with the volunteers. “I always learn so much about Sonoma County when I volunteer at KRCB” Lloyd says, “It’s a great place to network and find people with similar interests and values.” David Waxman, KRCB’s Senior Producer, has worked with Lloyd on auction since he himself was a volunteer, and observes that “Lloyd brings an energy to the crew. People like Lloyd are what makes having a volunteer crew possible--they make it so much more enriching and fun for the other volunteers—as well as the staff!” Thank you Lloyd for your many years of outstanding service to KRCB and for keeping KRCB community-powered! If you would like to become a volunteer at KRCB, contact Cheryl Scholar at 707-584-2005.

Business Sponsor – Clars Auction Gallery
KRCB Public Media is pleased to welcome a new corporate partner this month: Clars Auction Gallery in Oakland. Clars Auction Gallery got its start in the auction business in 1948 with Harvey Clar, an Oakland native who, at the age of 18, began conducting industrial auctions—starting with machine, wood-working, and automobile repair shops. His skill and reputation grew over the next couple decades, as he conducted a wide variety of commercial and industrial auctions, as well as the occasional estate filled with personal property. Mr. Clar and his wife Donna established their first auction gallery in 1971, and the gallery’s reputation for knowledge and experience in handling quality estate property has continued to grow over the last thirty plus years. It is now one of the largest auction houses in the Western United States and works with buyers and sellers both throughout the United States and worldwide. The majority of its clients, however, are located in Northern California. In mid-2004, the gallery began offering simultaneous internet bidding, in conjunction with the live auction, on many of its lots through eBay. Clars Auction Gallery conducts monthly two-day estate auctions of 1500-2000 lots at its North Oakland location. Between three and five thousand people attend the auctions and previews, with many thousands more viewing the lots online. In 1996, Harvey Clar sold the estate auction gallery business to Redge A. Martin, who is now President of the Gallery, as well as being one of the main auctioneers and appraisers. Harvey Clar continues to appraise and conduct auctions of industrial and commercial property.
