The Struggle premieres March 1, 2017-Wednesdays at 5 PM

Join Professor Eissinger every Wednesday evening at 5pm for an hour-long discussion about the big-picture issues and how to mount an effective, purposeful, and lasting resistance to racism, bigotry, and misogyny. In the new era of the so-called Alt-Right (white supremacists & neo-Nazis), every voice matters. This program is designed to address the local impact of national policies, as well as explore all the ways that everyday people, like you, can resist and keep up the STRUGGLE. Articulate and interesting guests dedicated to the resistance, combined with insightful commentary promise an hour of information you can use, everyday.

About the Host

Michael Eissinger is not new to the Fresno airwaves, beginning in late 1979 Eissinger, under the alias Allan Michaels was a fixture of rock radio in the San Joaquin Valley as he spun records at the following Album Oriented or Classic Rock stations: K-100 (in Porterville), KBOS (at the time, in Tulare), KKDJ (7 years) and KCLQ. He also did stints playing country music on KNGS and KMAK, and a brief stay at Y-94.

​After a 20 year career in the computer industry, Eissinger built the internet radio station, radioNUR, which, for about 8 years, was a popular world and independent music station, heard around the world with listeners logged on every continent except Antarctica. Changes in licensing and royalty practices made continuing with an internet-only station impossible.

​Returning to college at the age of 48, Eissinger has since completed to BAs, an MA, and (conferral in May, 2017) a Ph.D. He has been teaching history at Fresno City College since 2009, and History and Anthropology at Fresno State since 2015.

​The Struggle is produced for KFCF 88.1 by Nikolas Eissinger.

Our Mission

Our mission is to resist — to resist power and abuses of power. The first step in resisting power and its abuses is to deal in and with facts. This program is to give voice to the silenced and reveal the hidden. Topics will always focus on human and civil rights. We seek to protect the women’s rights, LTBTQ rights, those of the disabled and the immigrant. We seek to expose racism, defeat bigotry, and eliminate hate.

​We seek partners, throughout the region, to fulfill this mission. Your struggle is our struggle. Your pain is our pain. Let this program also be your voice, whether you need a place to cry or simply cry out.

​Together, we can accomplish great things.

Thanks to all who came to the KFCF Website Inauguration Party


On Saturday, January 28, we  had fun, wine, raised some money for KFCF and saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones too! The Soul Kitchen did a live broadcast, people played darts with the Donald Trump Dartboard, we had a ribbon cutting, chatted, snacked and watched Muffin, the canine Roomba clean up anything that was dropped.

Next to the air we breathe, it’s the planet’s most precious resource: fresh water. And it’s disappearing. The world’s largest food company describes the lack of water as a looming catastrophe that is expected to play out in the coming decades. In this episode of Reveal, we look at what’s happening in places that already are running out of water.

On a recent REVEAL on KFCF, water in the Valley and around the world were discussed. Here is the audio from that show:
