Wax! Crackle! Pop!

Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #40: Driving, Bo Diddley, and tortured hippie dreams

Monday, September 29


Lordy, Lordy. Show number forty! The nights are getting longer and we’re reaching the peak of Indian Summer. On this day a perfect crescent moon hung on, low in the sky, due west. Once I crossed the bay bridge that evening, the moon disappeared behind a blanket of fog. Typical, San Francisco. So long, September.
