NEW SUNDAY SCHEDULE ON KFSRWith the departure of Todd and Dan from the Early Bird Jazz to gain fame and fortune with The Directions (good luck, guys!) we figured that it was time to re-align our Sundays a bit. So here is the new schedule:
am. 6:00-8:30 Morning Music with John H.
Don't listen for the Basketball games until Jan 8., 1984. Until then, the Morning Music show will run all the way to 10:00.
|AN OPEN LETTER TO MODS:
I suppose an accurate sign of the times might be the recent success of Quadrophenia at our local midnite movies. Long lines of would-be transvestites have been replaced with clean-cut hair and parkas. It's been a long time in coming and I'd like to think KFSR has been highly instrumental in bringing this movement to Fresno. After all, where else can one hear those incredible Two Tone sounds over the airwaves?
Now that the Mods have made some progress in the U.S., I think a word of warning is necessary. What makes this group different from any other (whether it be the Punks, Synth-poppers, or even the Rocky Horror fanatics) is its open-mindedness and intelligence. Without these attributes, the Mod movement would be nothing more than just another fashion cult.

I think the key word here is "suss." It's an acquired taste which can't be bought. The fact that so many people have become interested, and yet so few actually know what it represents is a bit scary. The problem we face is much the same as the problem the Punks faced a few years ago: Mod is becoming chic. The problem is inevitable; it's ruined the Punks and it ruined the first Mod movement. Remember, Quadrophenia is not a positive Mod statement. It is a portrayal of the original Mod movement in decline. A sad reminder that even the most noble ideals can be corrupted
Mod is about more than just parkas and Vespas. Mod is about thinking for yourself. Mod is an attempt to make people aware that they are being taken advantage of. Mod is at attempt to make positive social changes. And if
