    Hmmm. Weird. Listened to KUSF for about 8 years while living in SF. Thank you for all the free tix to Yoshi’s. Came to look up current playlists on the site and saw the news. I will definitely follow to the web…but fear how long that will be. KUSF is a staple of SF. It was a defining element to my experience while living there. Futurebreaks, Radio Goethe, and David Bassin gave me the fix that is needed for an invigorating and progressive life. Finding it so easily on the radio every morning was like finding 20 bucks on the street every day you walk outside your door. I cant count how many times I would wake up from a stoned nap, hear a song, immediately call in, ask for the song’s title, and then ride the Muni to Amoeba to promptly buy the album. This specifically happened with 801 Live. A moment that I will remember for the rest of my life. Classical music is great, but compared to 801 Live, sandwiched between some Fela Kuti, and Freddie Hubbard? KUSF brought multiple entrees to the table…I pity the fool that made this final decision.
