    Pricks Up Your Ears

    In the August 9/16 issue of The Nation, Alexander Cockburn discusses Pacifica's alleged plans to use "scab" programming. KPFK General Manager Mark Schubb has told The Nation that he is not aware of any plans to use KPFK programming as "replacement" programming during KPFA's internal conflict, and that he would not condone such use. The producers and host of RadioNation stated to Schubb that they will not allow RadioNation to be used as replacement programming under any circumstances.
    The column also incorrectly described the role at KPFK of Nation contributing editor Jon Wiener. He is a one-day-a-week unpaid volunteer.
