Capricorn's Collision

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 82 min
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

An excellent example of KPFA's experimental, free-form, late night, radio programing. Robert Moran and Howard Hersh serve up an eclectic mix of poetry, music, humor, political commentary, and inspirational musings. With the growing protests against the Vietnam War as the backdrop, this program includes such characters as General Wastemoreland, General HersheyBar (plain chocolate, the nuts are in Washington), General Nuisance, General Eclectic, Captain Technology, and other luminaries. At one point a call is placed to rival station KSAN to gather support for KPFA'S protest petitions.

Warning: this program contains obscenities
