KPBS Presents 20 Years of The Casbah

Thursday night, stay close to your radio (89.5 on the FM dial) or stream the internets as KPBS interrupts regular programming for a special 2 hour presentation highlighting 20 years of The Casbah. Angela Carone, producer of Art & Culture at KPBS and writer of Culture Lust has worked really hard to pull together a show with San Diego music icons and tastemakers, hosted by Chris Cantore.

The show will feature interviews, stories, and Casbah memories from the perspectives of San Diego's finest including Rob Crow, Halloran, Tim Pyles, Stimy, Emily Joyce, John Reis and a special Casbah tribute to be performed by Steve Poltz. Of course, the man behind all of it, Tim Mays will be there, too. Sean McMullen, photog extraordinaire, will be calling in and I might even check in during the broadcast. Be sure to tune in on Thursday night from 7-9pm.

Here are some more photos from the smoking patio. If you haven't come by the Casbah for any of the anniversary shows, you're missing out on all kinds of good times...
