As outlined on its website, KFAI’s mission is:
KFAI is a volunteer-based community radio station that exists to broadcast information, arts and entertainment programming for an audience of diverse racial, social and economic backgrounds. By providing a voice for people ignored or misrepresented by mainstream media, KFAI increases understanding between peoples and communities, while fostering the values of democracy and social justice.
KFAI serves up dozens of programs to the Minneapolis / St. Paul area, including Write On!, a program where its producers sit down and chat with contemporary authors about their recent works, their creative process, and where their tastes and practices may have originated. Recently, author Mike Corrao joined Write On! to chat with producer Anna Gergen, specifically about Man, Oh Man, the novel we proudly published in October 2018.
Man, Oh Man is a humorous yet insightful experiment wherein two patrons appear in a dim cafe one day — how they’ve arrived, where they’ve come from, and why they’re there, they have no idea. What they do know is that they hate one another.
So they smoke. They tinker. They talk about art. They talk about waiting. They talk about talking. They talk about talking about talking. They talk about the strange messages coming through the radio. They talk about the even stranger guests who arrive, only to disappear a moment later. And as they fall deeper and deeper into this hysteria, what's uncovered might just make these two unlikely protagonists the most human of us all.
