since they're on the cover of rolling stone, it would appear they're
doing ok with it all (depends on your perspective tho i suppose); not
listening to kroq these days (check that- decades!)-i heard lots of kid
a on both kxlu and kcrw (it seemed maybe too pop for kxlu and too out
for kcrw, but that's to be expected in this fractured town). if i only
had my own radio station...actually, an installation artist i know has
been trying to set up his own pirate station for a while now...i'll have
to check in w/ him- it was going to be called wcry or sumthin', and
broadcasts would consist entirely of  of field recordings he's made of
kids crying in places like walmart. tune in for some real pain!
