My Last Rampage Radio Show...

No, it's not an April Fools joke! Below is a playlist and link to my final Rampage Radio show. Funny enough, this would have been exactly 4 years from the date I opened the Record store back in 2008. How appropriate! Anyways, I think this was one of the best shows I've done and I encourage you to check it out. Besides the usual crazy mixture of music, there is an exclusive interview I did with Pat Obrian (Cannibal Corpse) last week.

If you are not familiar with Rampage Radio - it began in 1982 on KUSF college radio, 90.1 FM. It is the longest running Metal Radio show I know of in the USA. It was where many bands were introduced to the bay area, and in some cases, the US. Yngwie, Metallica, Mercyful Fate just to name a few. And you can look this up - it is documented out there.

I was asked by Tonus "the DJ from Hell" Atkins to join a few years back (2007 or so???) and I was flattered and honored to do it. Though it is tough staying up from 2AM to 8Am on a Sunday morning, it was worth losing my mind to a dedicated audience every few weeks. And I mean that!

Unfortunately not so long ago KUSF was sold without consulting anyone and now 90.3 is a classical station. However, as far as I know the sale has not yet been approved by the FCC - which is required for the sale to be legal and complete. For more info on this, visit savekusf.org. For the past year or so KUSF "in exile" has been operating from a make-shift studio near the Bayshore area of San Francisco and is only online at the present time.

I want to thank anyone who ever listened to any of my shows at any time and for supporting Rampage Radio in general. It's been a pleasure and an honor and who knows, maybe some day I will be on again. Most importantly, I hope you all understand how important KUSF and Rampage Radio are for San Francisco - and that you spread the word and/or support actively in some manner, the restoration of the REAL KUSF to the airwaves. I mean really, San Francisco WITHOUT a killer diverse college radio station? Man, what happened to this town???
