    Poet and filmmaker Richard O. Moore, a co-founder of public radio station KPFA and a former president and CEO of public television station KQED, died of natural causes March 25 at his home in the Redwoods in Mill Valley. He was 95. Mr. Moore, one of the last of the generation of San Francisco Renaissance poets, died a week before the publication of his new book of poems, “Particulars of Place.” “My sadness is inevitably tempered by the fact of his extraordinary and extraordinarily long life and the privilege I had of knowing him,” Garrett Caples wrote in the City Lights Booksellers & Publishers Blog.
