After the Rapture, Can KUSF DJs Get Harold Camping's FCC License?

Posted By on Fri, May 20, 2011 at 5:01 PM


When the rapture comes at 6 p.m. tomorrow, all the good people are going to go to heaven. At least, that's what Harold Camping and his supporters at the Oakland radio station pushing this whole May 21, 2011 date believe.

But the members of KUSF in Exile -- DJs who were kicked off the air when the college station's FCC license was abruptly sold earlier this year -- have a question: When you good people are gone to heaven, can we use your transmitter?

"Once he and his followers are "raptured", we'd be happy to take that over for him," said Ted Dively, cooperative member with KUSF in Exile, the new, lesser version of the community radio station.

And the KUSF folks have good reason to believe they'll be able to make great use of the transmitter. Check out the full story on our news blog, the Snitch.

  • 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.'"
