KUSF Shutdown: Cartoonist Keith Knight Weighs in on What We're Losing

Outrage over the KUSF shutdown isn't limited to those living in the Bay Area. Yesterday, Los Angeles cartoonist Keith Knight -- former S.F. resident, author of the syndicated daily strip The Knight Life, and winner of several national comic awards -- drew a full edition of The K Chronicles about the closure of KUSF. Turns out that over the 10-plus years Knight lived in San Francisco, he became a dedicated fan of the station, which, until its abrupt sale and closure last week, broadcast at 90.3 FM. The free-form radio station even helped Knight woo his German wife.

Needless to say, the man was less than thrilled about University of San Francisco's decision to sell off KUSF's FM broadcast license for $3.75 million. He couldn't be in S.F. for today's protest at City Hall, but yesterday Knight released this protest in the form of a comic. We bring it to you after the jump.

You could squint to read the above, but instead, download the full strip here: kusf-main-strip.pdf.

  • 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.'"
