January 9: Music for a Dark, Wet, Stormy Night

Rain, sometimes heavy, continued to fall over the San Francisco Bay Area. This gave me the theme for the broadcast. The ever-helpful Emergency Broadcast System lent atmosphere by by issuing a flood warning during Noye's Fludde, and KZSU's building, Memorial Hall, sprang a leak.

We do live in interesting times.
