| KFSR DJ PROFILE
Tim Gaskill just might be the mellowest human being on 4 planets. He never gets excited about anything (except the 49ers and the Giants) and he prefers to just kick back and listen to his 100's of albums in a semi-conscious state. The guy can sleep anywhere, anytime. He has been observed asleep in a car going 90 miles an hour in neutral down the Grapevine with the stereo full blast. He once fell asleep at a hardcore punk gig. He is so quiet and mellow that he has been declared legally dead in at least 3 states and he rouses himself only to dis his musically adventurous Tuesday 4-8 shift.
Quote: "I ain't quiet, everybody else is too loud."
DJ MISHAP OF THE MONTH
During one of Randy Reed's many morning newscasts, the telephone decided to ring over the air. A.J. Lundberg, the on-air man, quickly picked up the phone after only one ring. Soon, the phone began to emit a beeping noise which also went over the air.
Randy ignored the noise while A.J. quitely hung up the phone. Maybe A.J. should have unplugged the phone, because almost as soon as the phone was hung up, it started ringing again. This was too much for Randy, and he couldn't keep from laughing. Somehow, he finished the news.
ALBUM AND CONCERT REVIEWS
Altered Images - Bite This Welsh five-piece outfits third LP marks a noted "soul" turn in their own danceable style. You've probably heard "Don't Talk To Me About Love," but check out "Love to Stay" & "Stand So Quiet"
It was an interesting contrast to see the Police and Translator within the space of a week. The Police concert, with its myriad of promoters, was undoubtedly a financial success (you multiply 20,000 by $17.00 and add the overpriced concessions and see what you get), whereas we might have broke even with Translator. On the other hand, while the Police put on a fine show -- highlights of which were the now-expected "Regatta De Blanc" jam and Andy Summers' guitar torture on "Syncronicty II" -- and the crowd certainly enjoyed it, Translator played a brilliant 12-song set with 2 encores, that artistically was much more of a success from my standpoint than the Police. Why? Because during Translator, I was right there.
