"The radio aches a little tune that tells the story of what the night is thinking. It's thinking of love." - Richard Siken, Crush
Caffeine in hand. Accidental and adventurous. Unstaid and unsettled. Experimental and empirical. Occasionally flustered but always passin' muster. Dammit Jim, I'm a simple country DJ, not a miracle worker! Get your radio-fu here!
"Hey, you got shoegaze in my power-pop!!" "Well you got power-pop in my shoegaze!" It’s Curt’N’Flip— two musical tastes that taste great together, popping up on the airwaves when you least expect them. Also, occasionally the hosts of Why Baby Why when no one’s looking.
Good morning Mr. Phelps. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to listen. From the deepest darkest heart of the mission come the throbbing beats of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. All for you.
What you hear is only most of what you get; requests, mostly of the rockin' kind, are incredibly welcome. It's opinion scattered among caffeinated punk, hip-hop, ska, country, rap, rockabilly and practically anything else thrown at the listeners like so much rotten, yet strange, fruit. Run-on sentences are a way of life!
Always some classical, a lot of punk, a mixture of anything else weird or funny or mood-of-the-day, plus a lot of very inane commentary. Usually there's something French too.
A love letter to a wiener dog. If that wiener dog wore a monocle. Or got really mad. Or had an indie rock mop do. Or danced on a beach in Japan. Or yodeled. Or rode a Triumph. Or was a Bollywood star. Or climbed Kilimanjaro. Or just ate a really good snack.

"Radio has helped to make people fixated on one particular kind of a sound and one particular kind of a style. And, a lot of people today, since music education is virtually nonexistent in public schools, they don't even know what they've been missing in terms of music from other cultures, music from America from other periods, (and) different styles. You may not like it all, but if you don't even know that it exists, how are you going to make up your mind?" - Frank Zappa
Aborting boredom in the Bay Area and beyond, Penny Royal is keeping things loud and weird on the KALX airwaves. From avant-noise, free jazz, to punk rock, there's a little something for everyone when Penny Royal takes over. Tune in and turn on.
The Radio Jane Doe
Wandering the foggy moors of dreamland with only a Victrola to light the way. Where songs about Jesus and Satan intermix with ditties about cheeses and seitan. Tipping sacred cows as we stumble towards a kind of Valhalla where Ish Kabibble shares a table with Subbulakshmi.
Regular DJ to be announced
Got'em, if you smoke'm. Pioneering the aural trail with the odd, indie and international to live layering bionic meltdowns. Spreading seeds of sound, far and near - everything you've never heard (or not heard quite like this)! Take the time to smell the weeds . . .
From punk to classical, from Paris to Hong Kong, from noise to polyphony, from the islands of Cape Verde to the island of Alameda, all without leaving the comfort of your frequency.
