UPDATE 2.7.13: This broadcast was cool. Click here to hear it.
Rag Radio goes dark on Friday. No, I don’t mean they’re going off the air, I mean dark as in Noir. Friday 2-3 PM, Feb. 1, I will be on the air with my guitar and some stories and a bad dude they call The Big Thorn (my informants tell me that one of his aliases is one “Thorne Dreyer” or something like that).
So The Big Thorn and My Terrible Self will be bringing you some dark sounds and mean streets, including The Last Detective at the End of the World, an excerpt from GRAVE DIGGER BLUES, on KOOP radio, 91.7 FM, the progressive voice of Austin.
PS I hope you saw my last blog, MY FATHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT GUNS.
