So… That’s it then. Almost 19 years of Alternative Therapy has officially ended. It’s been a good ride. I’d like to thank the volunteers and staff of KHSU. Their talent and creativity made KHSU what it was/is. It’s sad to see a great radio station dismantled – piece by piece – but nothing lasts forever. I would also like to thank the listeners. In the darkest hours at KHSU, I have been buoyed by your kind words. Even up to my last show, when a listener (tuning for the first time and last) called to ask me what I was playing. She wanted to know the name of the show and my name, and I didn’t have the heart to tell her, it was likely the last AT show ever. So I just let that moment lay there, and enjoyed it. Like all enjoyable moments, it was fleeting. My concern for those I’ve left behind runs very high. The stress on staff  – especially – is off the charts. I hope they can find a measure of peace somewhere in this mess. Me? I am going off to look for mine right now.

It’s been both a pleasure and privilege. B-bye!
