Help local bluegrass radio: KALW Radio (91.7FM, San Francisco) is conducting a “quiet” membership drive that does not interrupt programming. Those joining or renewing will receive the usual premiums. To be rewarded in a bluegrass sort of way, call in or pledge online during Peter Thompson’s Bluegrass Signal show, 6:30-8:00pm on Saturday, May 14. Details.
