The We Hours radio show on community radio KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles is on every Saturday morning from 12:01am to 3:00am. It is produced by Sue Cohen and Madeleine Schwab, and Jolie Mason and Steven Libis.

In case you are unfamiliar with KPFK public radio here are a few notes about where "we are coming from". KPFK was founded with the mission to be altruistic, leading edge and populist. The idea is to address all the important topics, and address the political slant too.
I don't just look at the interesting side of things but feel responsible to look at the hard issues too. That's what's special about being on KPFK, it's not just another computer show. Being aware of restrictions on the internet and other such issues that relate to computers is of vital importance to our communications capabilities, we should fight to protect our rights.
As one of you said, we don't like the "self-promoting and commercialization of the daytime AM talk show computer shows", so we want a different kind of show.
If The We Hours is attractive to you, you must be or become, aware of the special mission and operating principles that make it possible. That's why it's free of commercials, among other things. That KPFK is Listener-sponsored is why it is beholden only to its listeners.
This is an information show. In works of art we want form and flow and homogeneity, but on this show we want to reach out to all sorts of needs for information. Therefore we don't restrict topics from callers, nor screen calls. The phone ringing doesn't cost the caller anything, but if they are on hold, they are being charged by the phone company.
We have to try to judge on a case-by-case basis which answers or discussions have wide or narrow interest. That's part of the challenge of doing the show.

I (Steven Libis) (e-mail) am a computer consultant with experience in PCs (DOS/Win 3.1) and Novell NetWare (v3.12) networks. I also do programming (QBasic, HTML, Builder), training (various platforms), and computer support.
Jolie Mason and I will be hosting the Computers By Candlelight (computer segment) of "The We Hours" on the first Saturday of the month from 1am to 3am. Listener participation is encouraged, and we will be taking questions and comments via e-mail and telephone (818) 985-5735.
I am interested in being responsive to the curiousity of the listeners. While I understand that the press spends a lot of time talking about Windows, there are other operating systems still in use, and even some new ones in development.
I have a seperate page (Computer Links) listing URLs of possible interest to wide variety of computer users.
Are you interested in donating some of your product, for use as station premiums during fund drives? For review, and posting on this web site? As a future guest? Let me know, and maybe something can be worked out.
Watch this space for future developments.
