Best Of
KPFT is simply the best station in town. No other station has as much variety; blues, zydeco, rock en espanol, jazz, several forms of rock, world music, old-school Tejano and hip-hop all vie for space in the non-profit's weekly schedule, not to mention some good, some bad and some ugly current-affairs programming. While the commercial stations all aim for the lowest common denominator, KPFT tries the opposite approach, and if the results are sometimes maddening, much of the time it's pretty damn good. The station occasionally hosts community outreach events at its Montrose station as well.
