KUSF in Exile: A DJ Set @ Amoeba Records, 2pm-5pm, FREE
For many of us, talking about KUSF – our former beloved “cultural oasis” radio station – is still a sore subject. Although we are no longer able to listen to our favorite DJs discuss the music that’s been pumping through their Beats by Dre headphones over the radio, the free-form radio station lives on. As part of the Save KUSF movement, Amoeba is showcasing KUSF DJs: t his particular set will feature DJ Harry Duncan and his award winning Roots and Rhythm mix. For those of you still in turmoil over the controversy, DJ Duncan is sure to bring back some fond memories.
