Oh, GOD no! Don’t Put Donnybrook on the Radio!
In a moment of highly deluded judgment, the fine folks at DU – that’s right, the University of Denver, the fine institution with a gorgeous campus, high tuition, and a school full of smarty-smarts – invited the Donnybrook Writing Academy to drag our drunk asses into the studio for a radio takeover.
And while we don’t quite understand the technology, we shall be hosting a Donnybrook Fine Special of Societal Advancement on KVDU October 30th from 4-6 pm, and here’s what it’s turned into:
-Five writers: Angora Holly Polo, Benjamin “Benny” St. Maur, the Bartender, Irving J. Silvertoad, and Rbt. B. Rutherford;
-Three bands: Everything Absent or Distorted, Rabbit is a Sphere, and MAYBE a member or two of Bela Karoli – PLAYING MUSIC, of the musical sort;
-One journalist: from the Rocky Mountain News, who promised to sit behind a stack of records (if those exist anymore) and observe, maybe asking a question or two on air. I’m not mentioning his name in case he fears his reputation might be sullied – because there will be drinking beforehand, and maybe one person in particular will have consumed opium (I’m looking at you, Benny….)
We might as well put a pathetic little tent out front and call it a music festival! Well, shit!
So tune in, October 30th, 4-6 pm in the Time of the Mountain, to watch the disaster unfold.
