Skullduggery
(for DJ Schmeejay)

On Tuesday, January 18, 2011 the University of San Francisco
sold the station frequency (90.3FM) of its radio station KUSF
to a media conglomerate based in Los Angeles.
The sale was done in an underhanded a way, with no advance notice
and no opportunity for anyone to make a counter offer.

At 10am, during DJ Schmeejay's show, Radiodrome, the transmitter was cut
and DJ Schmeejay and others were escorted out of the station while the locks were changed.
There has been much public outcry over this.
KUSF had some of the most diverse programming in the country.

Since 1987, various musical groups that I have been a part of,
including Bardo, the After the End of the World Coretet, and Noertker's Moxie,
have performed live on the air at KUSF.
Noertker's Moxie has performed on DJ Schmeejay's show many times.

  I wrote this little ditty, Skullduggery,
 for DJ Schmeejay in his time of anger and pain
on Saturday, January 22, 2011.

Last Tuesday, June 25, 2013
DJ Schmeejay retired.
After ten years of Radiodrome
(that's nearly 500 Tuesdays!)
      he is hanging up the headphones . . .
