(thank you for the) list of exerpts ...


Either way, it hurts. And like one of the other petitioners I too feel ashamed to be a part of USF right now, for the first time in 19 years. I’ve beenannoyed before (so what’s new?) but neverashamed. So I have been reading from the SAVE KUSF petition and here are some extracts. The idea of middle-aged people like me quoting Depeche Mode back at the USF powers–that-be I must say does take a little sting out of the morning, given thatMartin Gore was raised Catholic.

+++

Extracts from the SAVE KUSF petition:

“Every time I listen to KUSF I *learn* something.”

“KUSF is a vibrant part of our community and culture. Replacing its diverse programming with generic classical music piped in from LA does everyone great disservice.”

“I was very proud to be on the air the night KUSF-FM broadcast for the first time. I am an alumni, class of 1978. I was also the first woman to receive the [Father] Speiler Award for achievement in the Mass Media Studies program. This college radio station changed the entire course of my life. Because of volunteer work as a producer, engineer and co-host (San Francisco Scene) I was hired immediately after graduation at Warner Bros. Records in Burbank (3000 recent college grads applied)… I had to earn my FCC 3rd class broadcast endorsed license in order to be on the air, learn to operate a board, edit, and go live. Please think carefully and reconsider this decision. It is not "Money That Matters". It is people, service and community that matters.”


“A certain amount of non-commercial media is necessary to balance commercial interests in order to ensure true freedom in media.”

“I work as a delivery driver mainly in San Francisco. It is the main station I listen to for music on the road. The corporate radio networks have played the same tired music formulas for years, with little or no variation between them. At least with KUSF almost every song played was new and unique, and not played to death like on the big radio networks.”

“To base the decision on whether or not the radio station benefits the students, would be to decide for the station that provides educational and eclectic programming, from classical music, to the University sports coverage, Chinese Star radio to local talent. This station was a breeding ground for culture and community.”

“I transferred to USF in 1981 specifically to work at KUSF, and was the Music Director there until I graduated in 1984. I went on to be the Program Director at several major market radio stations all across the country. The passion and work that the entire staff, student, faculty, paid and volunteer, did while I was at KUSF was really something special and many of us from that time went on to have very successful careers in the broadcasting and entertainment industries because of it. I read the explanation the university gave in this morning’s Chron, and it just doesn’t add up. The fact that the station has only 10% of its staff as students isn’t the community’s fault; clearly the blame lies with the university for not doing something to change it… The claim that the students can get the same experience from an internet only station is insulting to say the least.”

“KUSF was serving not only an arts community that has very few public forums, but also providing cultural programming for a number of foreign-language communities… The community of San Francisco, the music community in particular, will be severely damaged by the sale.”

“KUSF DJ's wished my then 4 year old son Happy Birthday on air and played a song he loved, I will never forget the look on his face, I could go on and on. Please bring it back.”

“I have supported KUSF with my money and as a business owner supported important programming.”

“I am a radio journalist, working for public radio in Germany (SWR). I have lived in San Francisco for several months. I do not just listen to the KUSF programs, I even worked there, took part at some radio shows and made some real good friends there. That’s what KUSF stands for: An amazing variety of programs, creating and supporting the community and making friends in SF and all over the world. KUSF is an important part of west coast radio history, so stop destroying it, please!”

“I am a neighbor of the USF campus, I pay for athletic services at USF's recreation center, and I am a KUSF listener.”

“KUSF is not like the other college stations. Not only does it serve the student base, the good people of SF, & the East Bay communities on 'the cooler side of the hills', the varied programming on the station also reach out to special niches in our beautiful Bay Area. The Brazilian music show, So da Brasil, is a must-listen for us here every week and we don't even speak Portuguese!). There's German, French, Turkish, Italian, Chinese programming that fill a serious need for people who really don't get a lot of options if they want to hear music and voices of their cultures on the radio.”

“I'm ashamed of this university. I've seen them cut quite a bit throughout my 4 years at USF. But this is the worst and last straw in my book. I feel like I've been lied to by the president. The media faculty didn't even know?!”


“Way to kill off a San Francisco institution USF. Nearly every day of the last 21 years i've lived in SF my dial has stopped, if only briefly, at 90.3. To say that I am heartbroken is an understatement. So disappointing.”

“9 to 5 and 5 to 9 Ain't gonna take it It's our time We want the world and we want it know We're gonna take it anyhow We want the airwaves We want the airwaves We want the airwaves, baby If rock is gonna stay alive Oh yeah-well all right Let's rock-tonite All night Where's your guts And will to survive And don't you wanna Keep rock n' roll music alive Mr. Programmer I got my hammer and I'm gonna Smash my Smash my Radio We want the airwaves We want the airwaves We want the airwaves, baby If rock is gonna stay alive! - The Ramones”

“Please keep KUSF on the FM dial! I have lived just down the street from the station for 19 years and I value KUSF's extremely diverse radio programming highly… Please reconsider!”

“21 year listener. Business owner and public school parent. The value of living within the city limits has been greatly damaged. Shame on you USF!”

“I am a long time a co producer of a local Music and Arts Festival (Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival) and KUSF has been a huge help in making our festival possible for 14 yrs.”

“I currently own a small business in SF and my staff and I probably listened to KUSF - 75% of the time, year in and out. Yes, we could listen to on-line radio, but we found the diversity, and cultural ties generated between the DJ's, staff and ourselves important and indicative of our wanting to belong to a wonderful San Francisco group… As we all know, USF students are gaining huge educational benefits from sources outside of the curriculum being sold to USF students.”

“My (now) husband was a DJ for several years at KUSF as well as an employee and student at the University - it is so sad to see that such an iconic institution has been shut down with no reason. Yes, I like classical music as well, but there are plenty of places to listen to classical - add more classical shows to the station…”

“I have lived in the neighborhood of USF for 25 years… As a former student DJ, I know the importance of being on-air as opposed to being online. Please give USF students the chance to experience the responsibilities and joys that come with communicating to a live on-air audience. Thank you for your careful consideration of this matter. “

“As a native bay-area woman and musician, I absolutely have LOVED this station for quite some time now. As I've watched countless radio stations turn more and more main-stream with their playlists, I have found KUSF's diversity and QUALITY of programming so important to my daily radio listening activity.”

“I've been listening to KUSF since I moved to San Francisco in 1992. There is NOTHING else like it in terms of music and involvement in the local community. Eliminating their FM license is not a benefit to the students at USF in any way and pretending otherwise is just a hollow talking point.”

“KUSF is an essential contributor to the cultural diversity of San Francisco. Keep it On Air!”

“I volunteered at KUSF as a DJ and department head from 2001-2010, leaving only for a new job in other state late last year. Like many of my colleagues, I raised thousands of dollars for the station and spent thousands of hours volunteering during that time. For the station to be shuttered without a word to the staff, students, faculty, or listeners is deeply insulting.”

“KUSF is THE college radio station in San Francisco, a city celebrated internationally for its independent character… Wake up, USF!”

“It's hard to imagine USF ever recovering from such a bone-headed act of bad faith against the best goodwill and good works ambassador it had going.”

“I am an older SF resident and have been enchanted with the eclectic musical format found on KUSF, since moving here in the 1980s. KUSF has fed my need for cultural awareness, and this is no doubt true for other SF residents (of all ages and ethnicities) served by these FM airwaves. What a shock and loss. The suddenness of KUSF's removal is an insult to the citizens of SF, as well as the SFU students and KUSF paid and unpaid workers. Beyond that, I question the so-called Jesuit ethic in the way this was handled. Do you think that everyone who depended on KUSF can afford a computer? … With each day that passes, these words appear to be ever so true: "The grabbing hands grab all they can, all for themselves, after all...it's a competitive world...everything counts in large amounts...[Depeche Mode]." Well, we who love the music seem to count very little, and every day we seem to have less and less of a say in what's really important in life. Respectfully, Eva 55 years old.”

“KUSF was the best radio station in the city. Hands down. Great radio programming shouldn't be punished, it should be rewarded.”

“After this I will be ashamed to say I am a University of San Francisco alumni, and will no longer support USF in any manner whatsoever.”

“I have listened for 30 years and am shocked by the heartlessness of the shutdown.”

“The University will also have more bad press, creating a bad taste in the mouths of the folks who *usually* would contribute to the school and its endeavors. This is one bad endeavor! I raise my voice and shout "No!" to this.”

“This sale is a travesty. It represents a betrayal of the spirit of USF.”

John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb.

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details
