"Newspaper On The Radio" has been going strong for nearly five months now, and we couldn't be prouder of our little show. Broadcast biweekly on, the show features some of SF Weekly's best and brightest staff members bringing you a radio program full of fresh news, witty banter, killer tunes, and serious San Franciscan charm.

In this week's episode, staff writers Rachel Swan and Joe Eskenazi and culture editor Anna Roth guide you through what they have dubbed the least productive weekend of the year. Between the 95 degree heat, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, and a marathon playoff game between the Giants and the Nationals, these writers break down why you found it so hard to put on shoes and empty your inbox. Don't worry, they won't judge

Other topics include the right time to buy a oscillating fan, the pros and cons of drinking milk, and the benefits of stressed out grapes.

This week's episode also contains an interview with Sister Roma of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the drag queen responsible for #MyNameIs, a hashtag created in protest of Facebook's decision to delete drag queen profiles under the pretense that they don't use legal names. Sister Roma discusses her successful campaign, and how the threat of a drag queen protest got Facebook to change their mind. Editor Brandon Reynolds also checks in for a rundown of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass' best performances.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
