Dartman: We have included conservative voices (Jonathan Hoffman) and the majority of our stories don't fall under any ideological line. I've actually reached out to several conservatives to have them write for us, but they've never followed through. So there's that.
You can divide up the 200(400) among different organizations. These donations also reduce your federal income as a charitable contribution.
John,John,John. Run for the House.
Before the internet and before I had my license and could drive to and record stores that had decent punk. I mail ordered everything from Toxic. In a lot of ways they shaped my taste in music and introduced me to bands I still listen too 25 years later. Thanks for everything. Ryan from Illinois.
And remember kids, add "scare quotes" to every other "word" or so in your "post." It lends an air of "cynicsm" that comes only from a "deep understanding" of "stuff."
I thought nobody gets fired right before xmas. They must hate the guy.
Conservatives prefer "talk" radio. The guys who brought us Rush Limbaugh in the mid-80's tested that theory (and, well...as they say...) Liberals have NEVER generated much of an audience for "talkradio." Liberals used to get their "needs met" via FM rock radio. Not sure where they go, now. Al Franken couldn't save AirAmerica. KXCI audience is no doubt mostly "liberal," by virtue of its "programming." Perhaps John can catch on there. But then, he'd have to be a "volunteer." And his info-mercials would have to help support KXCI.
I agree that Gustavo often takes a thoughtful and interesting question, one that dares display a naiveté about Mexican and Mexican-American culture, and dances around it with humorous derision and wordplay rather than dig deeper into the matter. Humor is part of his stock in trade, but it's still possible to address the question with humor and jocularity instead of ignoring it, or fearing like actually answering the question will ruin the column with too much dour gravitas.
The future of radio in Tucson: "All 'Cool Church,' all the time."
Look at the positive side: John C can now stay at home with his family for the holidays. AND not have to deal with the traffic around Winterhaven during his commute time.
So sad there is no value placed on someone who knows Tucson and Arizona. Other than KXCI, the radio landscape in Southern Arizona is bleak. Not sure anyone under the age of 60 even listens to it anymore.
I wish the man Happy Holidays and get a dislike. It ain't easy being me. Grasias, ronko.
How very GOD-LOVING CHRISTIAN to FIRE A MAN the Friday before Christmas.
That IS the problem with SUNDAY CHRISTIANS which is what these old has-beens are all about. Drive slow on Sunday. Pretend to follow the Good Lord's teachings. Act like a sanctimonious saint on Sunday morning. Then be an abomination on this earth at all other times.
before the internet, booking agents would call me up and ask me if I ever heard of such and such a band, and I would immediately call Bill at Toxic and go Bill do you know this band, and he would tell me all about them.... even without a physical building, Bill & Julianna's devotion and love for DIY culture will always have a permanent place in the history of Tucson, all of us in Tucson thank you for all you have given to this town we couldn't have done it without you
So you are upset that conservative KVOI has removed their more liberal talk show host. Isn't this a bit hypocritical, given that your publication, The Tucson Weekly, wouldn't dream of allowing a conservative writer to regularly post conservative articles and opinion? It seems to me that KVOI is simply following your journalism model.
Thank God that smut will no longer fill our airwaves. Anyone who did even the minimal fact checking would know he distorted the truth in a way that was gross and irresponsible. Happy day!
Best record store in Tucson. Changed my life in a lot of ways.
You'll be missed.
And by west I mean east...
I remember at 18, visiting and helping my grand folks out, in Dec. 1988 and seeing a sign over a little store a couple of doors west of Bobo's on Grant. Toxic Ranch Records huh? Sounds... wonderful. Left with an armful of records and t-shirts the first chance I got. Coming from a small New Mexico town within earshot of '80s college radio but no record store of its own, I was in heaven.
Moved here in '94 and freaked when I saw the coolest record store in the world was gone. I found it though. I can't thank Bill enough. Not many of us can. For coming to Tucson, for sticking through it, for Gimme Indie Rock! (fuck you Tony Ford), and for just being a genuinely nice guy I'll always love you Jolly Rancher and I hope you can continue.
SonoranWinds: Thanks, but I did not include that comma. It got messed up in editing. I even double checked my original pieces to make sure that I had not been making that mistake.
