T(o)V(ote) on the Radio
Since I’m a new resident of San Francisco as well as a new SF Metblogger, I thought I’d start out slow with a shout-out to my new NPR affiliate, KQED.
While I am more than a bit bereft to have moved outside the signal area of Los Angeles’s own KCRW, I’ve managed to dive right into KQED’s morning and evening programming during my commute on the lovely Junipero Serra freeway (otherwise known as 280).
That’s why I can safely say that KQED’s Election 2004 coverage should be a must-listen…and a must-participate. See, KQED wants you to contribute:
Participate in our special series of four, live, one-hour specials airing on TV, radio and the Web. Host Cynthia Gorney will explore four key presidential election issues — and how they will affect the lives of Northern Californians.

In semi-related news, I registered to vote at my new address two weeks ago. I filled out a form in the P.O., but the thing wouldn’t stay sealed, no matter how much spit I applied (ew). Anyway, I pointed this out to the desk representative, at which point she taped it shut. “But it says ‘DO NOT TAPE’,” I protested. “Everybody does it,” she replied. I wanted to ask her if everybody gets their voter registration cards, too.
Now I’m all worried.
