Put down your gun, GI! Don't volunteer for anything! Tokyo
Rico is here to lower your morale and make you leave Burning Man!
One of the really great things about Burning Man is the large number of pirate
radio stations on site. There's at least 10 stations going at any time of day or
night, playing pumping techno, spacey hippy music, spoken word, interviews,
radio dramas, FRENCH RAP, or whatever. I think I get more radio stations at
Burning Man than I do at home, in the (EMF) shadow of Sutro Tower.
Anyways, one of the cool things on last year's radio waves was Tokyo Rico.
Analogous to WWII Japanese broadcaster Tokyo Rose, he worked hard to discourage
Burners and send them home -- in hopes, I guess, that there'd be that much more
camping space for the rest of us. I don't think he drove off too many people,
but his harshing on Burning Man is RIGHT ON. Go check out the transcripts of
Tokyo Rico's broadcasts! Immediamente!
