We're On the Air: Joe Eskenazi and Benjamin Wachs Debate the Guardian's Tim Redmond on KQED Tomorrow

Perhaps you remember our recent cover story "The Worst Run Big City in the U.S." by Joe Eskenazi and Benjamin Wachs.

The story ruffled some feathers, to be sure, garnering a lot of comments on the Web site and a response from Tim Redmond, editor of  the Guardian, which was (to say the least) critical. And we responded to that response. It's a response-off, yo! And everyone knows there's only one way to settle a response-off: On a good old-fashioned civilized radio show.

Eskenazi and Wachs will debate Redmond tomorrow on KQED's forum show at 9 a.m. So pop the popcorn and make like it's the '20s and tune your dials to 88.5 FM if you'd like to hear some lively debate. Or if you're just curious to know what Eskenazi and Wachs sound like.

  • 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.'"
