  • On Fireworks and Patriotism | O Danny Boy
    espoused as patriotism in the US a type of patriotism that borders on annoying so filled is it with passion and conviction It s the patriotism of Jefferson and Paine men who believed in the separation of church and state local governments and the need occasionally for revolution Not the crazy live in a Montana compound sort of revolution but instead an activist revolution from within arising from reason from Common Sense San Franciscans are impatient and angry about the political life of the US because we see the US as it one day will be and it looks like well San Francisco simply because one day it must be more like us lest it perish more tolerant more diverse more ecologically friendly We can see it so clearly but have thus far been so perfectly blocked in making the country more like us In fact the US seems to be slipping away faster and faster towards the other direction away from reason and tolerance and individual rights This sounds arrogant I know but I truly believe that time is on San Francisco s side Eventually issues like the gay marriage amendment and intelligent design will fade away to be studied like Plessy V Ferguson and the Scopes Monkey Trial If it doesn t well I m not sure what kind of America this will be then Certainly not the America of Franklin or Lincoln So on this Independence Day let us celebrate independence and recall the words of America The Beautiful America America God mend thine every flaw Confirm thy soul in self control Thy liberty in law America America God shed his grace on thee Till selfish gain no longer stain The banner of the free 4 July 2006 Dan Post navigation The Internet Metaphor Trying to Understand

  • Live 105: Kill the Tagline | O Danny Boy
    and tell a friend Just because Live 105 has been around a long time doesn t mean we re going to be around forever WHFS in DC was around longer than we were twentysomething years and they got flipped to Spanish overnight More locally KSJO was around for thirty five years they are now enjoying 4 times their old ratings en espanol I also think that alt rock is going the way of jazz It s not going to disappear but it may never be a dominant cultural force again There is an entire generation of kids behind who ve grown up without any rock in their lives Hip hop is the dominant force in their lives When those kids get older and music starts to take a backseat in the lives of people our age then who will be their to carry on the traditions of alt music We are not claiming that we are the only source of alternative music or that it dies with us We do think that Live 105 is sort of the public square for alt rock a place where people can turn to find out what the most popular things are in our little corner of the world And while alternative music would exist without us most of the alternative records and concert tickets sold in the Bay Area happen through Live 105 airplay Ipods and web radio are great options for many but some people want a larger piece of the picture and some people want to find new things to put on their ipods We play a big role in that process We re not claiming to be martyrs or lambs led to the slaughter We re fighting to keep alternative music alive because we believe in the value of alternative music We use the word fighting because we want people to be engaged and understand that this is a serious thing It s not just about listening to Live 105 it s about going to shows and supporting bands that matter it s about re establishing a community of music lovers and making yourselves visible to the corporations that would take this music away without thinking twice Anyway that s my two cents If you have any questions or comments feel free to email me at madden live105 com or drop by the station some time We love to show people around and show you how things work Madden Live 105 Reply sean demery says 6 May 2006 at 5 36 pm Building on Madden s comments Since K ROCK New York went of the air in January New York concert sales are down 35 in the rock genre This is the beginning of a wave of live venue problems that dig much deeper than some quasi alternative rock station going off the air I have already talked to several managers of prominent Alt bands that are thinking of skipping their North American leg of their tour for next year
