The Monday Show Low Down (Or "It's Cool That You're Friends w/ Your Dog's Sister's Parents...")

Yeah, so change is, like, in the air or something. Radio Free Silver Lake will soon be going through an "awkward growing stage" as it becomes more and more like its smarter, prettier sister-site, Radio Free Chicago. That means a site redesign, a full staff, robot noises, and significantly less pictures of my dogs.

Interested in contributing? Write me. We'll get a beer.
