Global Val joins KPFA 94.1!

In the first of its kind collaboration, Mutiny Radio will be heard on KPFA 94.1 on Monday, October 29th, 1-2pm, with yours truly, Global Val!

The Producers of Women's Magazine on KPFA 94.1, approached me to join their production team. I met Kate Raphael of Women's Magazine at "Women, Speak Out!" a workshop held by the host of "Your Call" on KALW, Rose Aguilar. The workshop was addressing how women, who are under-represented in the news media, can better ensure that pro-active and knowledgeable women utilize their expertise and intuition to contribute vital voices to the dialogue of important global issues.

Women's Magazine on KPFA was created in 2005 to ensure a diversity of voices on the airwaves. The show highlights women's issues, lives, culture, music, struggles and achievements. I am honored and excited to join the production team of Women's Magazine on KPFA 94.1 and will be interviewing 'Women Changing the World!'

I will be producing a weekly show at Mutiny Radio, and from those episodes, produce a monthly edition that will air on KPFA. At Mutiny Radio, we learn from and train one another, and so I will be working with a new member of the Mutiny Radio Collective, Molly Hankwitz. With Molly's background in digital media and my radio experience, the two of us will collaborate to produce quality programming.

DON'T FRET! I will still be happily at my post for all the fun as Co-Hostess and Co-Producer of "The Common Thread Collective" with Diamond Dave & Friends, every Friday 3-6pm at Mutiny. News, views, and the People's open-mic!
