A Season in Hell #62: Radio Valencia: Talkin’ Election Night Blues

November 7, 6pm

Once again it’s election time. I tell ya, in San Francisco the freaks come out on Election Night. Per usual I’ll be hosting United Educators of San Francisco’s and SFUSD Social Studies teacher Ken Tray on my show. This is perhaps the third year in a row that he has co-hosted the pre-election day show with me. We’ll be talking about the ballot initiatives as well as the hotly contested mayors race (when isn’t it hotly contested in this town?), sheriff’s race and DA’s race.

I’ve got lots of election-themed music as well.
