While you’re studying for finals, you might feel like taking a break and listening to the radio. If you do, you might want to tune in to KPFA in Berkeley from 6 – 7 a.m. on weekdays for their new Al Jazeera English program.

The Pacifica Foundation owns that radio station, along with many others around the country. According to Berkeleyside, the show started broadcasting here and in New York and Houston today, but will continue to expand to LA and DC in January.

So as usual, we Berkeley-ans are among the first to adopt this new trend. Do we feel smug about it? Yes. Should we? Probably. At the very least, if you’re up from 6 to 7 in the morning and you’re hungry for news, you now have another source for it. And hey, kudos for getting up so early!

I have not checked in here for a while because I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend :)
