Hour 25 continues on line at Warren's web site www.hour25online.com with new shows so stop by and take a listen.
The only other news is the archives are very slowly being converted to digital so you'll be seeing a few clips added to this site over time. Don't get your hopes up, I'm slow with this, as anyone who knows me can tell you. :)
It's official, Hour 25 has left KPFK and is now exclusively on the web. The manager took Hour 25 off the air while negotiations were going on, however, no mention of this was made on the air so fans tuning in just heard music and no explanation of why Hour 25 wasn't on. When the dust finally settled and the show left KPFK due to "irreconcilable differences" there was still no mention on the air of what had happened.
Don't worry though, Hour 25 is alive and well broadcasting on the InterNet. You can hear the latest show by going to the official web site and while you're there check up on any shows you've missed. Hey, look at the bright side, NO MORE FUND DRIVES! :)
The winter fund drive went quite well for Hour 25. Warren and Suzanne want to thank all the people who subscribed and those people who came in to answer phones during the fund raising broadcast.
The fall fund drive went very well at Hour 25 and Wareen and Suzanne wish to thank all of you who made pledges as well as those who came in and answered phone.
Terry Hodel died on Wednesday, March 17, 1999. She was 61. I've made a memorial page where you can read a little more and hear one of The Calendars that she did.
As mentioned elsewhere in these pages, the news about Hour 25 has not changed -- the show is still cut to one hour. I don't know if the station will change its mind and restore Hour 25 to its former full two hours or not. If you'd like to write letters requesting the show be given its second hour back, you can contact the station by writing to
In January of 1997 Hour 25 finished a quarter century of broadcasts. To celebrate this event Warren had a special show. For that program he brought together almost all the former hosts of Hour 25 to talk about how things were in The Old Days. Because I've been taping and archiving the show since 1974, I was invited to tell people how the archives got started. I talked to Warren, in the studio, from the control room for a few minutes and told my story of the archives.
I took my trusty Nikon F2 and got some pictures. They came out pretty well considering I haven't taken pictures more than once in the last decade. I'm not sure I've labelled the group pictures accurately so any corrections are welcome and appreciated.
