The Rack of Hope

It's been a long day at work. Friday. Riding my bicycle home. Have to play a Nazi in a comedy, but not feeling it. I swing by Walgreen's on Market Street to purchase Crazy Glue to bond my monacle onto my eyepatch. As I'm locking my bike on a city bike rack, it looks up at me. A generic white sticker. On it, black Magic Marker print. "God Bless Our Brave Death Squads" Take heart. They're out there and they have a sense of humor. And I have the energy to be a Nazi tonight.

KPIG 1510 AM

I'm not paranoid. Just realistic. I thought everything on the AM radio dial these days was owned by Clear Channel or Disney or Evangelists. I happened on this station while driving around San Francisco this week. Sounds like a college radio station run by people who've been out of college for 30 years. They play what they damn please. And good stuff too. Well, stuff I like. I've been out of college for 30 years. Check it out at 1510 AM soon, before the suits arrive and screw everything up.
