SPECIAL THANKS: EVERYBODY WHO WENT TO THE THREE O'CLOCK SHOW Being an almost obsessive reader, I was upset at the news that Trouser Press, the great rock magazine, had gone under. I've been a big TP fan for 6 of its 10 years (even if they had been going downhill for the last year, but I think that was because of the general confusion of the music scene of the past year), and a subscriber for the last two, and I will miss it. If you add the downfall of TP to Rolling Stone's defection from Rock and Roll (until rock got "chic" again last year), and Creem's protracted adolescence (only the reviews are readable anymore), then there isn't too much for the intelligent rock fan to read today. I do know of a few alternatives, like Record, but it has gone downhill since it went to a glossy format. I understand that Dave Marsh has a thing called Rock and Roll Confidential but I haven't shelled out the $15 for a sub., because Marsh has a tendency to be paranoid. Go to one of the college libraries and read the reviews in the Village Voice, not a rock mag at all, but some fine writing on rock. Any mag with lyrics is garbage. That leaves Musician, the only great one left, except that Musician specializes in depth, not breadth, leaving me info-hungry. Comments on this subject would be great. Where can you read about rock nowadays??? I'd appreciate any sort of response.
PATTING OURSELVES ON THE BACK
I was shocked, I was surprised. And most of all, I was very pleased. The Three O'Clock, Game Theory, and New Breed showwas not only an artistic success, as was suspected, but a financial success. That was only hoped for. According to one rumour, over 100 people were turned away at the door. Best of all, despite some outside advertising and Star Palace regulars, at least 85% of the people were there because they heard about the show on KFSR. I like that. I think that it proves that we have had some sort of impact on Fresno in our short 1½ year existence. And now that we are going to get our power increase I think that we will do even better. In case you haven't heard, we are getting a new transmitter, courtesy of the Student Government here on campus. Not only a new transmitter, but new production facilities (yeah!!) and remote equipment for sports and on-the-spot news. As far as the increase will go, it should boost our power from the current in-the-mud 257 watts to a big 10-8 2500 watts or so. Not as much as the big boys, but enough to put us on respectable street. I'm beginning to think that we will have some small impact on how Fresno listens to radio. I hope.
The only Vintage Days concert that really matters is the Untouchables at the Satellite College Union at 3pm, Sunday April 29th. For us students only a buck, for the rest $2 in advance & $3 at the door. Secret Beat will open, so ska freaks will satiated. Why waste good money on bad Money? See the U-Ts.
