This morning, as Rocks Off was inching toward thePress
on the Gulf Freeway, he caught an interesting shout-out to the paper on KRBE'sThe Roula and Ryan Show
. They were giving away some passes to ourBest of Houston launch party
Thursday at Lucky's - where Roula will be on hand from 7-9 p.m. - and got to talking about the paper a little bit.
After praising our current Dwight D. Eisenhower/"You Bastard!" cover ("you gotta love the Press"), Ryan mentioned he also enjoys our music coverage: "Where else can you read a great music review and then see a bunch of ads for hookers on the next page?"
Actually, Ryan, we call them "escorts." But thanks for reading! - Chris Gray
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.
