Former Catholic Priest, SF Radio Host Popped For Kiddy Porn

Wow, I know I should be shocked, but somehow I'm just not. San Francisco radio personality and former Catholic priest Bernie Ward has been indicted on federal child porn charges. The KGO 810 AM News Talk Radio and GodTalk (insert joke here) host surrendered to the feds earlier today. According to Uncle Bernie's lawyer, the dual indictments stem from "research for a book" that Ward was working on more than three years ago about "hypocrisy in America," during which he actually downloaded several images of child pornography. I'm getting a very strong Pete Townsend vibe off this story, and for Ward's sake, I hope it turns out the same way.

  • 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.'"
