In Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing, Buggin’ Out (Giancarlo Esposito) tells Danny Aiello “Yo, Sal! How come there’s no brothers up on the wall?!” If Buggin’ Out were from San Antonio instead of Bed-Stuy, and Sal an FCC commissioner instead of a pizzeria owner, he would be saying “Yo! How come there’s no brothers on the dial?!” He would be happy that there is a new urban radio station in San Antonio: KRSPL Radio (as in the Richard Stevenson Presents Live Network) can only be found at krsplradio.com and it airs gospel, R&B, smooth jazz, and classic soul from the ’70s on. “About six years ago the `African-American` community lost the only urban radio station they had, KSJL 810 AM,” said Stevenson in an email. “The new station is attempting to be the voice of the community once again.” Good luck, guys. We could always use some good soul. Thanks, and stay black.
The advance tickets for the January 30 Girl in a Coma/David Garza acoustic show at Casbeers (1150 South Alamo, 9 pm, 271-7791) are sold out, but there will be a few tickets available at the door for $15. My advice: Come early. – Enrique Lopetegui.
