A Season in Hell #55: Radio Valencia: Naked DJ Night

It's late September, and the tourists have all gone home, which means It's a very hot night in San Francisco, and our summer has finally arrived.


I moved recently, and in so doing I located a lot of music I haven't played in quite a while. I pulled a lot of vinyl and a bunch of live music that hasn't made it on the air before.

Enjoy these treats, and for God sake, get naked!

A Season in Hell #53: Radio Valencia: SF Mayoral Candidate John Avalos

It's election time once again in the city by the bay, which means lots of posturing for the many candidates. It's funny, in this town the Republican party has to endorse the most right-leaning Democrat. Ha! Tonight I have District 11 SF Supervisor, and mayoral candidate John Avalos. John is THE progressive candidate this time around. His background is in education and grass roots work with local non-profits. I didn't hold back. Enjoy the interview.
