“Sleepers Never Wakes” by Vincent Stall, aka “King Mini”

Follow the Art Hounds as they lead us to a mini-comic creator’s sad, surreal landscape, a play about a soon-to-be groom who excavates his romantic past, and an east coast duo that creates listenable musical collages.

    I don’t know if this is the place for this comment, but I HATE HATE HATE the Arthounds broadcasts each week!! They are so HIGH SCHOOL! So sophomoric! So inane! Some of the information they convey about art events is worthwhile, but the way they start out, with the over-acting and the overlapping and all… I can’t stand it. I yell at and then turn off the radio whenever I hear it starting. Oftentimes I get distracted by something else and don’t turn the radio back on for a while. I mention that so you’ll know you’re losing a listener for a while because of that stupid — thing (don’t know what to call it).

    Please — make it stop!!
