01.30.11 10-12 AM Freefall DJ David Bassin Ty Segall To Perform at Today's Save KUSF Rally, FreeFall Lives Again Online

By Ian S. Port, Tue., Feb. 1 2011 @ 9:30AM

Well, the radio station at 90.3 FM is gone, and the website will only take 15 listeners, so anyone who wants to listen to their favorite KUSF show these days is pretty much screwed, right?

Wrong -- sort of. Today, as KUSF supporters prepare for another demonstration at City Hall -- this one featuring a performance from local garage-rock hero/former KUSF DJ Ty Segall -- and as the Save KUSF campaign continues in full force with T-shirts, posters, letters of support from famous people, and more sadness, we bring you a small present: DJ David Bassin's show FreeFall, a sweet two-hour set of "future jazz, R &B, global grooves & abstract beats." Hearing it feels like a tonic, even if it isn't coming through the airwaves. Check it out after the jump.

"We've been away for a couple weeks due to all the craziness with KUSF," Bassin, says at the opening of his 10-year-old show, a decidedly understated way of putting it. "It's you and me together again."

Then Bassin launches into a two-hour journey through various rhythms -- electronic beats and Latin grooves included -- making for perfect morning music. Sadly, it can't help but remind us of everything music fans (and fans of free-form radio in general) have lost with the station's sale. Stream or download Bassin's latest show below, and show up to City Hall at 1 p.m. today for the rally, Segall performance, and signing of a resolution.


David Bassin hosts an eclectic two-hour mix of future jazz, R &B, global grooves & abstract beats tat has received international acclaim since it's debut in 2000. Weekly rebroadcasts are available on Live365.com , Giant Step.net (NYC), Net-Musique.com (San Francisco). RadioTake10.org (China), DanceAnd Soul.com (Singapore). RadioPellenera.com (Italy) and the weekly podcast, available for free from the iTunes music store.

An Appeal From DJ Carolyn


The fight is still on to save KUSF 90.3fm

Please write a letter of support. Here is a form
letter, just add your name and address and mail it. If you prefer to write
your own, please do. I encourage it.

Dear Sir:

I am writing to express my opposition to the University of San Francisco’s recent decision to sell the broadcast license for 90.3 fm where KUSF currently sits. KUSF is a valuable resource to the City of San Francisco. The station’s locally produced programming exemplifies the unique diversity and eclecticism that is San Francisco. KUSF broadcasts in nine different languages giving a voice to those who have few other outlets through which they can be heard. President Privett’s blatant disregard for the people of San Francisco through this sale and the way it was handled is shameful.

Although corporate deals involving commercial stations are common, frequencies in the public radio range should be treated differently. These stations are specifically set aside by the federal government for community service and noncommercial purposes. The transfer of these licenses should not to happen without input from the community which the station serves. The University of San Francisco sought no community input in its decision to sell the frequency.

The University of San Francisco and the community of San Francisco should come to a mutually beneficial solution in order to allow KUSF to remain intact on the broadcast dial at 90.3 fm.

SF Residents! Please Contact Your Supervisor!

Hello SF friends,
Many of you know by now that KUSF was unjustly taken off the air in a complex deal in which America's fifth largest corporate radio conglomerate, Entercom, had part in some dealings along with the University of Southern California that has seen the purchase and takeover of low-dial airwaves and the contribution to the unfortunate trend of silencing independent voices and the mainstreaming/ homogenization of media.
As it stands now, the organization 'Save KUSF' plans to stop the sale of its broadcasting license before the FCC and intends to get back on the air.  Our movement got off to a roaring start and now we must continue the momentum.  The SF Board of Supervisors is now involved and has introduced a resolution co-sponsored by Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, Eric Mar, and John Avalos. What can the board do you ask? It gives us political leverage in our fight so that once the resolution passes we can move on to bigger names (Pelosi, Boxer, etc.) and can be granted a meeting with USF in order to stop the deal.
This is where you come in. It is integral to our cause that the resolution pass this Tuesday, February 1st. Once again we rally at City Hall at 1 p.m., before the Supervisors meet AND VOTE on this resolution.  They need to hear from constituents like you that it's unacceptable for a community/college-run station of 33 years with cultural programming in nine languages and ties to the vibrant underground and local music scene that will otherwise go unheard in a free broadcast format, to simply disappear. 
Find the email for your home district supervisor here (just click on their face and look at the map):
Write them now and come to the City Hall rally Tuesday 2/1 at 1 p.m. *There'll be bands!*
Also find out who else you can write and for more info on the fight to Save KUSF go here:
Please forward this message to friends, family, co-workers and any concerned SF resident.
Thank you,
Andre Torrez

Questions Raised About Future of KUSF Archives

By JEANNE CARSTENSEN| January 28, 2011 5:33 p.m. In MUSIC


Supporters of KUSF, the community radio station owned by the University of San Francisco that ceased broadcasting recently when it was abruptly sold, want to make sure the station’s extensive archives will be preserved.

Founded in 1963, the station’s archives contain a “massive number of CDs and vinyl,” according to Irwin Swirnoff, the former music director. “It has cultural value that is priceless in terms of diversity and obscurity,” he said, with deep collections in jazz, rock, punk, electronic music and other genres.

Archivists Meagan and Rick Prelinger of the Prelinger Library in San Francisco are advising Swirnoff and other KUSF supporters on preserving the collection. “The music library has to be kept intact as a physical memory of everything that KUSF has been, and as a starting point for future,” said Meagan Prelinger, who is a longtime fan of the station. “It’s like the sound track of my life has been turned off.”

The dimensions of the vast archive containing 34 years of Bay Area broadcasting history are difficult to determine precisely. Much of it sits in Phelan Hall on the University of San Francisco campus and will be moved to a yet-undetermined location in coming months.

Reached on Friday afternoon, university spokesman Gary McDonald said he didn’t know immediately how many items it contained. “We talk about it in terms of space,” he said. “It’s large.”

Swirnoff said the collection consists of an active CD library and vinyl library. Items like 78 rpm records are packed away in storage areas.

In the long term, the university plans to digitize the archive, according to McDonald, “so that it will be available to anyone working in KUSF.org,” the online-only version of the station that will replace KUSF.

McDonald said he didn’t know how much it would cost to convert the collection to digital or what would become of the original materials afterwards.

vangelis papathanissiou : l'apocalypse des animaux

Bobby Goldsboro's birthday that day, and as I have a couple of old 45's of his, I decided to bring one down to the station and celebrate his 70th on the air with a song. When going through my records at home that morning, I also grabbed Vangelis Papathanissiou's "Lapocalypse des Animaux" to play underneath us at the breaks of my sets. It was already looking out to be another emotionally charged Radiodrome.

At about 9:50, after playing Goldsboro's weepy "Danny is a Mirror to Me", I announced the song and the rest of the set over the top of Vangelis' ambient greek genius. The piece continued as I turned around to see Trista Bernasconi, KUSF Program Director, standing in the doorway of the studio. She asked me to step outside, and looked upset. I went over and she told me, "this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. The station has been sold, and I have to turn the transmitter off."

I was stunned. Immediately, other people from the university who were there in the wings were telling me, "everything else will stay the same, don't worry - we will be online within hours, but only online". I looked behind me into Studio A and the signal was already gone as my record continued to play silently on Turntable One.

My fellow Music Director, Irwin Swirnoff happened to be there that morning in our workroom and after he found out we kinda just stood in there and stared blankly, in disbelief, occasionally pacing the room. Like you would in a hospital after a finding out about a loved one's hit and run accident. We were finally being coaxed by security to leave the premises while they changed the locks, and headed to Lone Mountain to see the president of the university, Father Privett. A cop was waiting for us outside his elevator. We waited and waited and an assistant eventually came out and told us he was there but was busy. She assured us that would tell him that we were requesting his presence at their "informational meeting" that was planned for the following night in Fromm Hall. We wanted some answers, and not just from their PR tank. Now joining up with Deia de Brito from KALW, we then went to the Vice's office, Charlie Cross. You can see the YouTube video everywhere now. Witness first hand the dehumanizing and antagonistic response we received from his office. Sad and pathetic. At a prestigious institute of higher learning. Despicable.

It's been a few days now, and I'm amazed at how unreal it all seems. In San Francisco, we're often kept from the all-to-common reality of anti-community greed. If it can happen here, this country is really, just completely and irrevocably, gonna be in the hands of the few. While they silence the many. Chinese Star Radio. Radiotochka, Radio Goethe. Franco Fun. The Pastor Tom Show. The Love Letters Squad. Diva Radio. The Classical Cowboy.

I've still got two hours of Radiodrome that I'd like to air, records still sitting in the corner of my living room awaiting their chance. We will not be silent.

Classics Without Walls

The Anti-Warhorse Zone is in it's nineteenth year of thumbing down it's nose at the bizarre conventions of commercial "classical" radio. We're as committed as ever to the truths that music is not a commodity for consumption or a vehicle for technical perfection, and that even the best recordings don't reproduce music - only the sounds. We treasure risk-taking composers and performers who step up and take their own risks. In addition to our unruly broadcasts, Classics Without Walls works to counter the music-as-commodity blight by sponsoring small-scale concerts, mixed media presentations, and informal post-concert meals with the aim of helping draw musician and listeners closer into a community of participation.

KZSU's Shedding Light Radio Program

Harry D's Website, In The Soul Kitchen

The University of San Francisco sold KUSF's broadcasting license on Tuesday morning without any notice and without any input or involvement whatsoever from KUSF Cultural Programming and New Music djs/producers/hosts. All 200 of us are volunteers.

On Wednesday night, USF President Stephen Privett stated the University's position, took questions and comments about the sale from KUSF volunteers, current USF students, faculty and alumni, loyal KUSF listeners, community members, musicians, label and venue owners in a packed, peaceful meeting of 500+ on the USF campus.

I'll be on KZSU Radio tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 22 at 10:15 a.m. (West Coast Time) to talk about some of what's happening to address this.

KUSF 01.17.11 10-11 PM Classics Without Walls DJ M Theo

Classics Without Walls

The Anti-Warhorse Zone is in it's nineteenth year of thumbing down it's nose at the bizarre conventions of commercial "classical" radio. We're as committed as ever to the truths that music is not a commodity for consumption or a vehicle for technical perfection, and that even the best recordings don't reproduce music - only the sounds. We treasure risk-taking composers and performers who step up and take their own risks. In addition to our unruly broadcasts, Classics Without Walls works to counter the music-as-commodity blight by sponsoring small-scale concerts, mixed media presentations, and informal post-concert meals with the aim of helping draw musician and listeners closer into a community of participation.

GERMANY in the late 70s/early 80's, a country after the student revolution, the hippie movement and under terrorist threats. Punk came to Germany and influenced many musicians.
