KPCC radio billboard ‘Occupied’ by KPFK radio listener

by Lalo Alcaraz on March 9, 2012 in Cultura, El Now, Las Fotos

Much L.A. radio hay was made over the placing of a KPCC 89.3 FM billboard advertising its “Ideas not ideology” slogan practically on top my radio station’s studios at KPFK 90.7 FM, where I host the Pocho Hour of Power every Friday at 4 PM.

As I walked in today, I was alerted that someone had replaced the KPCC billboard with our own KPFK billboard. Didn’t know we had such a substantial advertising budget. 

Nice job! (above photo by KPFK’s Ernesto Arce) Here’s the before picture:

I can’t help but find a lot of humor in this. Viva la pasión!

Yes, I agree with Steve. While I love both KPCC and KPFK, and this is clearly vandalism, I can’t help but love the sentiment. I wish we would all be as involved with societal dialogue/discourse as this “graffiti dude” was. Hilarious.

Hey, they made a conscious choice to place the sign a few doors from KPFK .. so what do they expect? Who were they referring to when they came with their profound “ideas not ideology” b.s. anyway?
It would be great if someone could transport that sign and place it next to KPPC’s new digs in Pasadena. I’d love to see that.
( I’ve produced work for all three stations KPFK< KPCC and KFWB and each station can be a variation of the same vanilla theme .. white folks in charge who are so very full of themselves.)

“Nice job”??? Hardly.

Low class and disrespectful, not to mention illegal and immoral. Would this be okay with you if the situation were reversed? I don’t think so. If KPFK won’t stand for tolerance and free speech, who will?
