A look inside KRCB’s books
We often receive questions about the Misc. sources of KRCB’s income, so the beginMembership ning of a new year seems a good time for Entreprenurial a quick primer. Membership—that is, your support— Auction provides 26% of the stations’ annual CPB, Federal Business / income. As you can see on the chart, Underwrting federal support comes in just behind that at 25%. Businesses in our communit KRCB Income Sources provide 15% in the form of underwriting support for programs. And 9% of KRCB’s income comes in the form of auction donations and bidding from businesses and individuals. The other notable number is the 13% of our annual budget that is provided through entrepreneurial activities, such as renting spectrum and tower space. Looking at our last completed audit (FY 2010), our total income for KRCB, television and radio, was $2,789,860. Given the very challenging current economic conditions, KRCB also needed to draw down an additional $200,000 from our reserves to make ends meet that year. Those reserves have been created by prior entrepreneurial activities. On the other side of the ledger, our expenses are fairly typical for a non-profit organization. We spend 52% of our income on program purchase, production, broadcast, and promotion. Our administrative costs sit at 22% with fundraising expenses comprising 24% of our income. While there are presently no active bills in Congress to cut funds for public broadcasting, we do fear that the issue will be back on the agenda next year. If that happens, we will once again ask you, our great community supporters, to reach out to your Representative to communicate the importance of KRCB to the life and health of our community. ~Nancy Dobbs

Peter is a long time listener and supporter of Public Broadcasting. Dear Member, The year 2012 is an important milestone in the recent history of our Northern California community. Our landscapes and viewscapes have been preserved and protected by hosts of hardworking land savers over the past century. This year marks important anniversaries of a number of true landmarks created by those far seeing individuals. KRCB is happy to help celebrate their accomplishments. Our friends at Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD), have been preserving watershed for an incredible 100 years. The Golden Gate Bridge turns 75 and we’ll be interested to see what sort of celebration is planned this time ’round. Marin County Parks turns 40. The precious Point Reyes National Seashore was dedicated 50 years ago and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, 40 years ago. The creation of both these national parks will be explored in Moments in Time (working title), a documentary by Kelly-Yamamoto Productions in partnership with KRCB. If the last part of the production funding can be raised quickly, we will look forward to Point Reyes making the documentary a part of their celebration this fall (see page 8). We stand, as Huey Johnson says, on the shoulders of these visionaries. KRCB’s Natural Heroes encourages us to look around today and re-dedicate ourselves to this important public work. Nancy Dobbs President and CEO

Bill Moyers returns to KRCB
Bill Moyers returns on-air and online in January 2012 with Moyers & Company, a weekly hour of compelling and vital conversation about life and the state of American democracy, featuring some of the best thinkers of our time. A range of scholars, artists, activists, scientists, philosophers and newsmakers bring context, insight and meaning to important topics. The series occasionally includes Moyers’ own timely and penetrating essays on society and government. In a multimedia marketplace saturated with shallow sound bites and partisan name-calling, Moyers & Company digs deeper. As the Los Angeles Times put it in 2010, “No one on television has centralized the discussion of ideas as much as Moyers... He not only gives a forum to unusual thinkers, he is truly interested in what they have to say and who they are because he believes their ideas really matter.” Mondays at 9 pm beginning January 16
Germans in America series returns in January
In a four-part television series, Germans in America recounts the story of German emigrants to the United States, using gripping stories about naive settlers and successful farmers, about devout free-thinkers and political refugees, about the heyday of the German-language press in America, and about the founders of industrial dynasties in the new homeland. Sixty million Americans have their origins in German-speaking countries. As America’s largest ethnic group, the Germans made a significant mark on America’s cultural, business, and public life for centuries until their identity fell victim to feelings of shame and repression during and after two World Wars. But their achievements are still the basis for much of American culture. Location shooting, archival footage, the descendants of immigrants, and carefully done historical recreation bring German-American history to life. Monday, January 2 at 9 pm – Into the Promised Land Summer 2003: a group of 40 German-Americans from Loose Creek, Missouri travel to Germany. They are on a search for their roots and will find them in a farm in the Rhineland. One-hundred-fifty years ago, the Münks farm was the birthplace of their ancestors. Tuesday, January 3 at 9 pm – The Price of Freedom The year is 1862. A group of 65 young men are fleeing across the Texas prairie. These sons of GermanAmerican farmers are desperately trying to break through to the North to fight for the Union army. Suddenly, they run into trouble in the form of Confederate troops. Their riverside camp is surrounded and half the party is summarily executed. The rest are tracked down on the prairie; only a few make it across the Mexican border to safety. Monday, January 9 at 9 pm – Little Germanies June 15, 1904, screams fill the air over the East River. The screaming of people who are drowning. The General Slocum, an excursion boat, is on its way to Long Island. On board are mostly families from New York’s Little Germany. Over one thousand German-Americans die in the river on this early summer’s day from drowning, burning, or caught up in the boat’s paddle-wheels. The catastrophe marks the end of this Little Germany, a neighborhood in New York’s Lower East Side. Tuesday, January 10 at 9 pm – A People Disappears By the early twentieth century, the German-Americans have become one of the country’s most important ethnic groups in business, finance, education, research, and agriculture. But they look back across the Atlantic with great concern. In Europe a horrible war has broken out. Anti-German propaganda heats the country up for war and brings out intolerance and hate. These were the patterns that German-Americans had to deal with during the First World War. Everything German is struck from the American language. German family names are Americanized. German culture disappears from public life. During both world wars, German-Americans try to keep any German identity under wraps. Many are suspected of being spies.

Downton Abbey comes around again
The Downton Abbey estate stands a splendid example of confidence and mettle, its family enduring for generations and its staff a well-oiled machine of propriety. But change is afoot at Downton—change far surpassing the new electric lights and telephone. A crisis of inheritance threatens to displace the resident Crawley family, in spite of the best efforts of the noble and compassionate Earl, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville, Miss Austen Regrets); his American heiress wife, Cora (Elizabeth McGovern); his comically implacable, opinionated mother, Violet (Maggie Smith, David Copperfield); and his beautiful, eldest daughter, Mary, intent on charting her own course. Reluctantly, the family is forced to welcome its heir apparent, the self-made and proudly modern Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), himself none too happy about the new arrangements. As Matthew’s bristly relationship with Mary begins to crackle with electricity, hope for the future of Downton’s dynasty takes shape. But when petty jealousies and ambitions grow among the family and the staff, scheming and secrets—both delicious and dangerous—threaten to derail the scramble to preserve Downton Abbey. Part One – Sunday, January 22 at 9 pm Part Two – Sunday, January 29 at 9:30 pm Season two follows!

Public TV premiere – Living Along The Fenceline
KRCB is pleased to present the broadcast premier of the second offering from Petaluma filmmaker Lina Hoshino (Leap of Faith), prior to its national distribution. Living Along the Fenceline tells the stories of seven remarkable women who live alongside U.S. military bases. They are teachers, organizers and healers, moved by love and respect for people and the land, and hope for the next generation. From San Antonio (Texas) to Vieques (Puerto Rico), Hawaii, Guam, Okinawa, South Korea, and the Philippines, their personal experiences of struggle, loss, and courage tell a wider story of communities working to transform the contamination, prostitution, violence and desecration of land and culture generated by U.S. bases around the world. The film inspires our hope and action through the power of ordinary women to resist militarism and create genuine security on their own terms. Sunday, January 15 at 10:30 pm

Official Best of Fest: The Best Films You’ve Never Seen

These well-written and innovative films screen at some of the world’s top film festivals—such as Sundance, Cannes and Toronto—yet few ever reach a wide audience.

Each episode features several shorts—ranging in length from two to 15 minutes—grouped by common theme, including “Friendship,” “Love,” “Inspiration” and “Comedy.” Founded by Seattle-area Director/Writer/Producer Rick Stevenson (above).

What’s new in daytime television?
Sweet Life with Chris Xaver Food means celebration, family, and good times. But for those trying to either watch their weight or their blood sugar, celebrating with food is either forbidden or disappointing. Often times, sugar-free recipes are tasteless and lackluster. The Sweet Life provides simple, delicious recipes that taste just like the foods we have either grown up loving, or learned to love in our favorite restaurants. BUT these recipes are made without all the sugar, carbs, and excess fat. Many people have tried cooking with sugar substitutes and had disastrous results. The problem isn’t with the ingredient substitutes; it is in knowing just how they cook and bake up differently. Wednesdays at 12:30 pm beginning January 11 Rachel’s Favorite Food for Living “Irish cooking queen” Rachel Allen returns to public television to deliver more easy-to-make recipes and helpful tips for the time-strapped home cook. In Rachel’s Favorite Food for Living, the chef, lifestyle TV host, cookbook author and mother of three concentrates on the kinds of food whose smells and tastes evoke special memories. She draws inspiration for her dishes from some of life’s happiest moments: falling in love over a romantic meal, making bread with our grandmother, enjoying Sunday dinners with our families or gathering with girlfriends to discuss the finer points of chocolate. As with her first public television series, Rachel’s Favorite Food at Home, some of Rachel’s recipes feature her take on international delicacies like Aztec soup, squid salad and mussels, Greek almond crescents and more. Fridays at 12:30 pm beginning January 13

Early music early in the New Year on Harmonia
January 1 – Dancing in the Court of the Sun King We’re ringing in the New Year with French baroque dance music from the court of Louis XIV. Plus, we’ll hear secret voices from the Las Huelgas Codex on a featured release by Anonymous 4 (rt). Happy New Year from Harmonia! January 8 – A Musical Tour of Prague Today we tour the musical centers of 17th- and 18thcentury Prague. Along the route, we’ll unravel the city’s intricate tradition of liturgical music, revel in instrumental masterworks by Czech natives and foreign visitors, and hear excerpts from operas premiered within the city.

January 15 – “What do you know, Chalumeau?” We are going to explore music for the seldom-heard chalumeau, a predecessor to the clarinet.

Side One, Cut One
At a time of year when fresh beginnings are front and center, Flashback presents an hour of them. Of course, these are the beginnings of record albums (remember them?), the opening tracks from some great old discs by the likes of Jefferson Airplane, the Byrds, Pretty Things (rt), Fleetwood Mac, Steve Miller Band, Cream, and The Doors. Host Bruce Robinson introduces an almost all-star cast. Tuesday, January 4 at 7 pm
Climate One conversations for the New Year
January 5 – Canada’s Tar Sands The 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline would carry heavy crude oil from Alberta to America’s Gulf Coast refineries. In this Climate One debate, a panel of experts argues for and against the controversial pipeline. January 12 – William Clay Ford, Jr. It might sound strange coming from the scion of a family whose name is synonymous with cars, but Bill Ford is worried about a world with too many automobiles. “Even if we clean up our cars, 4 billion clean cars is still 4 billion cars,” he says. Ford says his company is also committed to improving the fuel economy of every model it makes. January 19 – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The fact that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is so readily embraced by progressives can conceal that his message is an inherently conservative one. The market is flawed, he says, by polluters who “make themselves rich by making everyone else poor”—externalizing their costs and internalizing the profits. If dirty fuels were forced to cover their full costs, Kennedy says, not only could they not compete in the market, renewable energy would win. January 26 – Blessed 350 Two of the most influential environmentalists of the past 30 years share the same stage for just the second time in their long careers in public life. Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org and author of Earth, and Paul Hawken, entrepreneur and author of Blessed Unrest, talk about the ailing economy, the economy we must build to succeed it, and the forces that stand in the way. Thursdays at 7 pm

Dramatic Saturday nights from LA Theatre Works
January 7 – Lucy, by Damien Atkins In this thought-provoking new play, 13-year-old Lucy, who suffers from autism, moves in with her estranged, misanthropic mother. Since Lucy has lived her entire life with her father, both she and her mom struggle with all the difficulties of their new arrangement. January 14 – Art, by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton How much would you pay for a painting with nothing on it? Would it be art? Marc’s best friend Serge has just bought a very expensive— and very white—painting. To Marc, the painting is a joke, and as battle lines are drawn, old friends use it to settle scores. January 21 – A Doll’s House, by Henrik Ibsen, translated by Rolf Fjelde Nora and Torvald Helmer are an upper-middle-class couple who are divided by a secret. But when the man in the middle comes to Nora for a favor, Torvald’s drastic response threatens to tear their family apart. January 28 – On the Waterfront, by Budd Schulberg An ex-prizefighter faces a crushing dilemma: should he rat out a corrupt union boss or keep silent while others suffer? It’s an iconic story of corruption and redemption, in the stage adaptation of Budd Schulberg’s On the Waterfront. Saturdays at 6 pm, repeating at midnight
Music and mysteries on A Novel Idea
Larry Slater, “The Jazz MD,” guest hosts A Novel Idea this month, and talks with Bill Moody, a jazz drummer and author of the mystery novels, Fade to Blue, Shades of Blue, Looking for Chet Baker, and Bird Lives! Moody has played and/or recorded with Maynard Ferguson, Jon Hendricks, Annie Ross, and Lou Rawls. He worked for years as a musician on the Las Vegas Strip, hosted a weekly radio show at KUNVFM, and has taught creative writing at the University of Nevada and Sonoma State University. “The connection between playing jazz and writing crime fiction is a strong one for me. A jazz musician begins with the framework or the song—the chords, the structure, the form—but during a solo, he doesn’t know what he’s going to play or how until he reaches that part of the song. Writing crime fiction for me is a similar process. Working from the basic structure of the crime novel, I then improvise on a premise or motif, if you will, and I’m a fervent advocate of the ‘what if ’ game during the writing process.” -Bill Moody An hour of interest for jazz fans and mystery lovers alike. Wednesday, January 11 at 7 pm
Opera Sundays for 2012
The 2012 Opera Sundays start on January 8 (a correction from the December Open Air which listed January 1) with Mozart’s comic romp, The Abduction from the Seraglio. Other amusing selections this year include the familiar Tales of Hoffman, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and the rarely heard Die Kluge/Der Mond by Orff (best known, of course, for Carmina Burana). More serious fare includes La Boheme, Tannhäuser, and Nabucco from the great masters. Less frequently heard but excellent operas in the schedule include Medea, Bluebeard’s Castle, Armida, and Le Cid (for the Francophiles). Our Handel opera this year, thanks to a loan from a generous listener, is Riccardo Primo, based on the marriage of Richard the Lionhearted to Princess Berengaria of Navarre, on Cyprus during the Third Crusade. Opera Sundays are usually the first Sunday of the month. However, to accommodate broadcasts of the Santa Rosa Symphony we will bump the January, February and April operas to the second Sundays. January 8 – Mozart - The Abduction from the Seraglio: Solti (c), Gruberova, Battle, Winbergh, Talvela.

Musical chairs for NPR hosts
Some familiar voices will be heard in new places in the coming weeks, as NPR shuffles some of the hosting duties for its signature news programs. Audie Cornish (rt), who was recently named the new host of Weekend Edition Sunday is moving over to host All Things Considered, where she will replace Michele Norris for the year. Norris is taking a leave of absence from hosting duties as her husband has taken a job with the Obama campaign. She will continue to report on special projects, unrelated to election or political coverage. At the same time, Rachel Martin will fill the weekend slot newly vacated by Cornish. For the last year and a half, Rachel has been a National Security Correspondent for NPR, providing coverage of military and intelligence issues, including a memorable series on women in the military.
Outbeat starts the New Year
January 1 – Living Proof Step into your fierceness in 2012! Sheridan Gold and Dr. Dianna Grayer discuss new year’s resolutions on a soul level, which of course involves living authentically! January 8 – Outbeat Music: Tone Poems Mikala Kennan explores the lush world of program music written to inspire the imagination. From Barber to Bernstein to Bowie, this hour focuses on music as a descriptive medium written to convey specific ideas, moods or associations. Is there a distinctly ‘gay’ sound? January 15 – Outbeat Collage - Out in the Arts Mikala Kennan and Gary Carnivele talk with Colin Turek the producer of Gen Silent, a documentary film about LGBT seniors and the problems they face when seeking care and housing in a less than LGBT-friendly environment. Model, DJ and one of the hosts of Chrome Lotus, Sonoma County’s hottest LGBT bar, Efren Espinoza will also be on hand to talk about his many endeavors. January 22 – Outbeat Now! Jeff Basham and Greg Miraglia talk with Matt Malik and the Friends of Rio Nido, a grassroots community organization working to beautify this small town in west Sonoma County. On Outbeat Youth, Greg Miraglia is joined by Dr. Ardell Thomas, chair of the LGBT Studies Program at City College of San Francisco, and several students enrolled in the program. January 29 – Outbeat Extra Outbeat looks at politics – The first in a series of four discussions with candidates and current elected officials about LGBT issues in our community.

Folk Music Calendar Live and Online
KRCB presents a weekly calendar of live folk music performances in and around Sonoma County. Hear it live at 2 pm Saturdays during Our Roots Are Showing, or read it anytime at krcb.org. The folk music calendar is compiled by Schaef-Able Productions.
E-town takes to the road in January
January 2 – Los Lobos / SHEL For 30 years Los Lobos has made their mark with a powerful mix of Spanish/Mexican inspired, original rock and traditional tunes. The talented Fort Collins group SHEL joins us as well. These four, young, classically trained musicians (who happen to be sisters) have an eclectic sound that’s both sophisticated and lighthearted. January 9 – Flobots / Matthew Caws Flobots are a progressive hip-hop collective from Denver, described by the Boston Herald as “rap music’s most singular breakthrough act in years.” Singer and guitarist Matthew Caws brings us his solo versions of Nada Surf ’s poppy, thinking-person’s indie-rock songs. January 16 – Mumford & Sons / Danielle Ate the Sandwich Mumford & Sons bring their unique sound all the way from London. The young and spirited quartet share their earnest and high energy folk-rock sound. Also taking the stage is Danielle Ate the Sandwich (that’s Danielle Anderson and her band), who has built an impressive internet fan-base in a relatively short amount of time with her great singing and quirky, hip original tunes. January 23 – Moby / Suzanne Vega Since releasing his first single “Go” in 1991, Moby has become a household name. He’s a socially/environmentally aware, soulful guy to be sure, and he’s also funny as can be. Suzanne Vega (rt) also takes the stage with her friend and guitarist Gerry Leonard. A leading figure in the folk music revival of the 1980s, she has continued to write great songs and has performed around the world to rave reviews. January 30 – Lyle Lovett / Taj Mahal – Green Rocks Part 1 Originally taped and aired in 2010, our “Green Rocks” event continues the recycling, zero waste zones, renewable energy use, and biodiesel bus transportation we originated at this magnificent venue a few years back—practices that have now become standard procedure for the stunningly beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. Our featured musical guests are Lyle Lovett and Taj Mahal. Mondays at 7 pm
Alissa Valles, Bill Vartnaw on WordTemple
“A gifted American poet with an unusually international sensibility.” This is how Edward Hirsch describes Alissa Valles, a poet who was born in Amsterdam, grew up in the U.S. and the Netherlands and studied in London, Poland, Russia and the U.S. On this month’s WordTemple, Valles reads from her collection, Orphan Fire, poems that explore the way a soul navigates the temporary dwelling in the body. Organized as a triptych, Orphan Fire is structured around the journey from entry to death. Also, host Katherine Hastings speaks with Sonoma County’s seventh Poet Laureate, Bill Vartnaw. Born and reared in Petaluma, Vartnaw is the founder of Taurean Horn Press and has published 14 books since 1974, including his own In Concern for Angels (1984). Finally, a number of Sonoma County residents read some of their favorite humorous verse. Perhaps a little Ogden Nash, a little Wendy Cope. Tune in for some serious, and not so serious, poetry on WordTemple, Wednesday, January 18 at 7 pm.
Many of us look to revive our good habits in the New Year
At KRCB, we are grateful that one of the good habits our members renew is continuing their support of KRCB Public Media. Here is a way to make that support easier to manage from year to year. Upgrade your support to a sustaining membership. Sustaining members are the lifeblood of the station, providing a monthly donation that is automatically managed by our membership staff. No more renewal notices, just the confidence of knowing that your support will continue without interruption. For more information about the KRCB Sustaining Membership Program call us here at 707-584-2018 or go online to KRCB.org.
January 2012 volunteer of the month – Ken Kimari
Our volunteers bring energy, enthusiasm, as well as their skills to KRCB. We feel blessed to have so many wonderful people volunteering at KRCB, and Ken Kimari—our January Volunteer of the Month—is one of those special people. He hasn’t been volunteering with us for that long but in the short time he has been here he has become an “in-demand” volunteer working in several departments. He takes it all in stride even when things get crazy around here (which in itself is appreciated); his calm demeanor might surprise you if you knew his career was in law enforcement but he says it was his many years of police work that led him to develop that approach to life. Ken started his career as a cadet when he was an elementary school student in Concord, then moved to Humboldt County where he lived for a number of years. It was the desire to live near his parents that prompted him to look for a job in Sonoma County and he and his wife and three children soon found their new home. Coincidentally, Ken isn’t the first retired policeman who volunteers regularly at KRCB. His first volunteer assignment reunited him with former colleague Jim Lavaroni, radio announcer for Percussion Discussion on Radio 91. For the last wine auction, Ken put in many hours—and miles—as he drove around to various wineries picking up donations. He is also a member of the volunteer TV production crew that brings you our live auction three times a year as well as the recent live pledge programs. Currently Ken is expanding his repertoire by learning the job of floor director. In addition to working alongside other volunteers and the KRCB staff, Ken told me he appreciates the opportunity to learn new skills and to help develop new programs such as KRCB Live, featuring local musicians (check out KRCB’s YouTube videos to see some of Ken’s “behind the camera” work). Thank you, Ken, for giving us so much of your time and helping KRCB grow new programs for our expanding audience! If you are interested in volunteering contact Cheryl Scholar, Community Engagement Director and Volunteer Manager at 707-584-2005.

So each community came together to talk about the “Achievement Gap” as they saw it. From those conversations, community members began to think about what they could do on their own, as a community, without waiting for a state or federal agency to provide funding to close the gap. The film captures the amazing results that sprang from those conversations. 12:00 Democracy Now! * 1:00 Best of LINK tV *

anguishing decision over whether to “go public” with his theory of evolution. Darwin spent years refining his ideas and penning his Big Book, On the Origin of the Species (published 150 years ago this fall). Yet, daunted by looming conflict with the orthodox religious values of his day, he resisted publishing—until a letter from naturalist Alfred Wallace forced his hand. In 1858, Darwin learned that Wallace was on the brink of publishing ideas very similar to his own. In a panic, Darwin grasped his dilemma: To delay publishing any longer would be to condemn all of his work to obscurity. 9:00 Moyers & Company (see page 5) 10:00 PBS Newshour 11:00 Charlie Rose 12:00 Democracy Now! * 1:00 Best of LINK tV *

On the night of November 26, 2008, 10 men armed with guns and grenades launched an assault on Mumbai with a military precision that left 166 dead. India quickly learned the attackers belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group associated with Pakistan’s secretive intelligence agency, the ISI. But what wasn’t known then was that a Lashkar/ISI operative had been casing the city for two years, developing a blueprint for terror. His name was David Coleman Headley, and he’d been chosen for the job because he had the perfect cover: he was an American citizen. Frontline and ProPublica reporter Sebastian Rotella team up to investigate the mysterious circumstances behind Headley’s rise from heroin dealer and U.S. government informant to master plotter of the 2008 attack on Mumbai.
