Los Angeles awakes on April Fools Day to the
Mother of All April Fools Jokes!
Pirate Radio is broadcasting LIVE in
Southern California on 106.7. Shannon in the
Morning, Shadow Steele, MJ Kelli, and others
have long time KROQ listeners turned upside
down. Instead of the ROQ's usual alternative
fare, the Pirate Crew has brought out the
famed "Big Dogs" and is telling Los Angeles
to "Move Over Rover". It's hair band rock
and roll time again! Joan Jett tells Pirate
listeners "Let's Kick Some Ass!"
For 48 hours on April Fool's Weekend, it's
Pirate Music, Pirate IDs, and Pirate
Jocks. Shadow tells Southern California,
"Pirate Radio LIVES on 106.7!" A few
minutes later, he says "If you close your
eyes forever, you can imagine it's 1989
all over again" and launches into Lita
Ford's "Close Your Eyes".
For one last, way too short time that
spring of 1994, it was heaven and anarchy
all over again.
