SF Radio: KFOG Food Bank Fund Raiser CD Released

KFOG-FM announces the release of its annual benefit CD, Live from the Archives 22, to raise funds for Bay Area Food Banks. The live compilation CD features KFOG in-studio performances from rock’s biggest artists, including Train, Michael Franti and Cage the Elephant, and will be available for purchase starting Monday, November 2, at Bay Area Peet’s Coffee & Tea locations. A special pre-sale is available online now at In addition, on November 12, KFOG will present Bay Area Food Banks with a $200,000 donation, representing funds raised from last year’s Live from the Archives 21 CD sales.

KFOG 104.5 FM in San francisco has produced its annual CD benefiting Bay Area Food Banks for 22 consecutive years.

The CD is the biggest single cash fundraiser each year for Bay Area Food Banks, which include: Alameda County Community Food Bank; Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano; Napa Valley Food Bank; Redwood Empire Food Bank; San Francisco-Marin Food Bank; and Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. These agencies help feed disadvantaged children, families in crisis, low-income seniors, people living with AIDS, the homeless, the working poor and others in need.

Jim Richards, Program Director for KFOG-FM said: “The continued support of this project by the music community is impressive and humbling.  These artists give their time to perform in our Private Concerts, then contribute the recordings to this compilation so that Bay Area Food Banks can provide a much-needed community service.  The musicians, their managers, publishers and labels have all been generous and gracious.  I’d like to thank them for keeping this worthwhile tradition alive.”

Paul Ash, Executive Director of San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, said: “The amount of support the Bay Area Food Banks has received from Live from the Archives over the last 21 years is tremendous. Not only in dollars, but in raising awareness about food insecurity to KFOG listeners. Meals bring people together, especially during the holidays, and this annual donation allows Food Banks to provide critical assistance and joy to thousands of families who are struggling to make ends meet.”

Below is the track listing from KFOG’s Live from the Archives 22. Listeners can preview tracks and all funds raised from the sale of Live from the Archives 22 will go to Bay Area Food Banks.
