Aww shucks, I'm not gonna jump all over ya. I just don't get any decent radio reception in this below round den of a digital studio of mine; my "digital bunker" as I calls it. Even NPR is just plain static snowstorm , but I know of the Pacifica system of which you speak.

I well remember our Pacifica station in New York ; WBAI. I still miss my daily noon doses of the West Virginny native-born son become PhD.nutritionist , preventative medince & health advocate ,takes no lip from Big Pharmaceuticals and AMA lobbyists "give 'em hell" Gary Null. Only WBAI gave him the commercial-free forum necessary to build a more nutrition-minded conciousness raising.

As far as C-Span goes it doesn't have any regular programming per se except the morning call-ins and everything is driven by what's going on that week. Best to check in on their on-line schedule and cherry-pick what interests y'all. For example: Noam Chomsky's hundred minute "9/11" lecture from last year was rebroadcast over the weekend "in its entirety". That's Pacifica's style, right?
