warehouse and gallery, near Mission and Caesar Chavez. So far, Hell says, the
station has 25 two-hour shows lined up covering a broad variety of
musical styles and other topics.
Mccabe's Dirty Needles show airs from 4
to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, and will play music from local and touring
bands, broadcast live shows from the warehouse, and hold interviews.
Hell's show is called A Season in Hell and will air a variety of music
and interviews Monday nights from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The Evolution Control Committee will broadcast its mischievous mash-ups at the same slot on Tuesday nights. The Ask Dr. Hal show will air from 8 p.m. to midnight on Fridays.
a co-founder Radio Free Burning Man and FCCFreeRadio.com, says the goal of Radio Valencia is "to be a
voice in the community."
"I hope when people think of Radio Valencia they'll think of home," Hell explains in an e-mail. "They'll
think of a trusted source for alternative expressions of music and opinion,
as well as a place where they'll be welcomed to come share their opinions,
their culture, their food, their ideas, their love for all things community."
Hell says the station won't shy away from discussing politics, but he
said the goal will be to express a range of views rather than take a
strong stand on particular issues.
Radio Valencia currently only broadcasts online, but Hell says he's, um, heard that
some people might try setting up a transmitter to broadcast its signal
over the air. Hell isn't worried that the station could be shut down by
the FCC if a transmitter goes live.
"It's inevitable," Hell says. "It's going to happen. You just can't worry about it."
Mccabe wants to have touring bands appear on his show before they play
shows in S.F. He says he can offer the bands something a lot of crash pads
can't: the free washer and dryer at Chet Poulet.
"They can do their laundry and then guest DJ with me," McCabe says.
