Remember terrestrial radio? Cool terrestrial radio? That doesn’t play Fergie and Fall Out Boy all day? It still exists; you just have to seek it out.
On Monday, Christmas Eve to all you non-Festivus revelers, Drenched in Blog will be sitting in from noon till 3 p.m. with Mr. Brad, the news director on the Gulf Coast Rocker, KACC 89.7 FM. We will be talking about all things awesome, including this past year in music, plus playing some of our favorite tracks from this year's best albums. I don't quite know yet how French dance-rock will jive with his Clutch and Back Door Slam, but it will be fun. We may even make an off-color joke…or seven. Tune in to hear what I sound like, so you can put a voice to all my sarcastic self-referential nonsense. I hear I sound like a tired Phillip Seymour Hoffman. – Craig Hlavaty
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
