Wednesday, July 18, the powerful House Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS) Appropriations Subcommittee will meet to recommend funding for public broadcasting stations. Draft recommendations were released earlier today proposing a phased elimination of all federal funding for America’s local public television and radio stations.
We need your help TODAY!
Yesterday, we asked advocates of 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting to call their Members of Congress who sit on this subcommittee. Today, we’re asking all advocates of 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting to call every Member of Congress to ask for their help in keeping this legislation from becoming law.
What would the bill do?
• The bill phases-out federal funding for Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), including:
  • Rescinding roughly 25% (or $111 million) for FY 2013 and 50% (or $222 million) for FY 2014 for public radio and television stations.
  • Ending the special two-year advance funding process for public broadcasting that has served for more than four decades as a “firewall” from political interference in programming.
• The bill prohibits stations from using any federal funding to pay dues, acquire programming such as Morning Edition and Car Talk or otherwise support NPR.

• The bill provides no funding for Ready to Learn, a public television service that builds the reading skills of children between the ages of 2-8, especially those from low-income families.

What you can do?
• Wednesday at 10 a.m. EDT, the House LHHS Appropriations Subcommittee will meet to finalize this disastrous legislation.
Please call your local Representative and defend Public Radio!
Here are talking points you can use when leaving a message with staff:
• I am very disappointed to learn of the cuts proposed to local public broadcasting stations in the recently released House Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations Draft bill.
• The bill phases-out federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), including rescissions of roughly 25% (or $111 million) for FY 2013 and 50% (or $222 million) for FY 2014 for public radio and television stations.
• The House Subcommittee also seeks to terminate the special two-year advance funding process for public broadcasting that has served for more than four decades as a “firewall” from political interference in programming.
• These cuts would drastically affect the services my local stations provides in our community.
• This proposal flies in the face of the will of the American people, who routinely rank public broadcasting as one of the best investments the federal government makes and who overwhelmingly support our work and our public service mission, across the ideological spectrum.
• Public broadcasting funding has already been cut by 13 percent over the past two fiscal years.
• But the House Labor-H proposal to eliminate public broadcasting funding entirely would mean the end of public broadcasting in America, as reports from the Government Accountability Office found in 2007 and as the Labor-H Subcommittee requested report last year concluded.
• This would be particularly devastating to many rural public broadcasting stations, which are often the only local media outlets in their communities. These cuts would force many such stations to close.
• Placing restrictions on how locally controlled stations program for their audiences substitutes congressional decision-making for local control. NPR programs are key to helping stations increasing local audiences and raising private sector funds from listeners and businesses in their communities. Loss of audience will mean the loss of local funds, which translates into less locally news, information and cultural programming.
• We are grateful that the Senate Appropriations Committee has already recommended level funding of $445 million for public broadcasting and that the President has made the same recommendation in his current budget proposal.
• We hope the final FY 2013 appropriations bill recognizes the tremendous value public broadcasting provides our community, and as such, provides public broadcasting with continued federal funding to help carry out this invaluable mission.
Please let your local member of Congress know how important public broadcasting and its programs in the Labor-HHS bill are to you and your local community.

Thank you for your continued support and for speaking up on behalf of public broadcasting!

Gordo: programming mentor, storyteller and friend

Dear Gordo,
Thank-you for helping me with my fear of speaking on the air, for hours of meaningful conversation in your guitar shop, and for making the misfits feel at home inside the revolutionary walls of KMUN.   Although I still feel you near, your effulgence is missed in our maudlin little town.

From the Daily A:
Gordon C. “Gordo” Styler of Astoria, host of a popular Saturday night radio program on KMUN, died in Portland June 18. He was 65.

His brother, Bill Styler, told The Sacramento Bee that the veteran broadcaster had been ill recently and died after “his heart gave out.”

Styler was born June 15, 1947, in Sacramento, Calif., to Charles and Evelyn Styler. Raised in Davis, Calif., he graduated from Davis High School and the University of California, Davis, where he started in radio and was station manager at KDVS.
In the 1970s, he worked for several years at KZAP in Sacramento, the first in the area to play album rock music chosen by the DJs. Later, he was a reporter and anchor at KFBK and KRAK.
Known as an expert in 1960s and 1970s rock music, he had an extensive record collection and was friends with several musicians, including Country Joe McDonald and band members of Jefferson Airplane and Blue Cheer. It has also been reported that in 1976 Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead persuaded the Hells Angels to vote Styler their disc jockey of the year.
One of his callers at KZAP became his wife of 26 years, Marilyn. When she died, as requested, her ashes were scattered at the mouth of the Columbia River. The couple had no children.
Impressed by the kindness of the people he met in Astoria, he moved here in 2004 after his wife’s death. He and his brother, Bill, a luthier, opened the Astoria Guitar Company, featuring handmade, restored and custom instruments, often catering to professional musicians from out of town or on tour.
Active in the community, he volunteered at KMUN, hosted the annual Tenor Guitar Gathering and organized fundraising concerts for various community causes.
He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Sue Styler of Priest River, Idaho.
News of his death sent the entire station staff at KMUN into mourning. David Paul, who joined the station in 2004 with Styler, said colleagues loved his great sense of humor.
“He leaves a huge hole as he was kind of a larger-than-life person,” said Paul. “He was the go-to guy. He could program rock, blues and jazz and he could do it at the last minute if needed. He knew so many people from his days in California. He was just phenomenal.”
Joanne Rideout, general manager of Coast Community Radio, offered a tribute to Gordon Styler:
“He was generous to a fault with his time, willing to drop everything and sub on a show at the last minute when an emergency arose.
“Some days when we were short on programmers he would be on the air all day, leading us to refer to the station then as 'Gordo Radio.' He was generous in helping out other programmers, and was the DJ behind the scenes for Verne Barth's jazz show for a long time when Verne could no longer see well enough to operate the board.
“He really believed in community and we benefited enormously from his tremendous knowledge of music in almost all genres. When he organized the concert for Big Red a few years back, I don't know very many other people who could stage a reunion of Jefferson Airplane as a fundraiser, but he did it, because they were his friends and they did it for him...
“We are getting emails at the station from people in California, former listeners and friends, who are mourning his passing too. So the whole West Coast is mourning Gordo with us.”
