Family Stations is a Christian educational network founded by
Harold Camping in 1958. He later sold Family Stations and became a
volunteer president and general manager of Family Radio..
In 1961, he started Open Forum, a live weeknight call-in program
that he still hosts, even though he is 89 years old. Everyone is
welcome to phone Camping during the program and ask questions,
especially about his prediction that the world will end in 2011,
according to Family Radio supporter Fred Store, who was part of a
caravan that distributed information about the end times Thursday
in Downtown Lodi.
Open Forum is on the air from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday through
Friday. The nearest Family Radio station to Lodi is KEAR, 88.1 FM,
in Sacramento. In the Bay Area, KEAR has a station at 610 AM.

Have you ever wanted to take that dream vacation that you can't
afford? Eat food dripping with cholesterol, without worrying about
your health? Or do just about anything of pleasure without
consequence? Well, you'd better get it done by May 21 of next year
because we will all die between that day and Oct. 21.
So says a group of traveling people living in vans who spent
Thursday passing out leaflets in Downtown Lodi proclaiming the end
of the world coming next year.
