Saturday nights on community station KSER-FM, Everett, Washington -- streaming at kser.org, too ... pledge early, pledge often!
Best story: Patti Smith sitting in her limo in the station parking lot listening to Easter
air in its entirety on the album preview show - she was coming to KGON for an interview on
my all-night shift and later told me she was going to blow the interview off if I bleeped
any of the swear words ... I didn't, and she hung out for a couple of hours picking records
to play and having a pretty good time of it. It was one of the few interviews done during
that tour. Worst interview - The Ramones - couldn't get much more than 'uh-huh' or 'nuh-uh'
for answers out of Tommy & Johnny ... and they were the talkative ones!"
