Appearing Wednesday on Fresh Air to promote his new movie "50-50," Joseph Gordon-Levitt interrupted host Terry Gross's introduction to ask "can i just have a gratuitous kiss-ass moment?" He said that his parents met while working at KPFK, the Pacifica station here, and he told Gross that he listened to a lot of public radio in the car with them. "I have a very fond place in my heart for what you do," he said. In the movie, Gordon-Levitt's character works at a Seattle public radio station.
Noted: Dennis Levitt was the news director at KPFK. Jane Gordon ran for Congress in the Peace and Freedom Party back in the day. They both are listed as founders of the Progressive Jewish Alliance.
