I've been up in Seattle for a few days, so I've missed some recent court action. I'm a little sad that I didn't get to see Marshall Home declare that Jonathan Rothschild was an agent of the Queen of England, but judging from what Gibson reported, the whole thing went on a little too long, anyway. (I felt the same watching Gone With the Wind when I saw it at the Fox a few summers back.)
Anyway, when I left town, my friend John C. Scott was still on the air, but then there was some kind of trouble and now, instead of John C.'s booming voice, I'm listening to an old episode of the Twilight Zone radio drama on KJLL.
I get the feeling that working at the station in recent months has been like being trapped in a dark corner of the Twilight Zone. My condolences to the whole bunch of them.
John C. and his son, Mark Ulm, do a great job of bringing a wide range of voices to create an ongoing community conversation on the airwaves. I hope they find a new home soon.
