The Seattle Times occasionally carries something about KRAB, but the writer often makes no attempt to conceal their disdain. This piece is prefaced with a disclaimer about it being "slightly opinionated". Unfortunately the opinions are uninformed, frequently narrow minded, and most admiring (glowing if about celebrities) when it comes to commercial media, although in this special piece they do discuss KUOW publishing a program listing.

You may note, that even responding to the listener's letter the "editor" takes swipe at KRAB's programming of music that is out of the mainstream (Native American) and KRAB programs that include readings of articles from periodicals that listeners may not have access to otherwise.

May 10, 1967

John Howard Griffin speaking about the First Principle of Racism. We have found a copy of this program, and will be sharing it in the archive soon.

May 11, 1967

Maybe Skreen was just bragging that he had deciphered what was pictured on the cover of program guide Nbr 113, but Lorenzo, four years before the first edition of Sex & Broadcasting, had a pretty good idea what it took to get attention and sell books.

Click on the image at right to see what he is writing about.

There is a lot of news in Guide Nbr 113: Gene Johnston is organizing a KRAB softball team; plans are afoot to broadcast a live group therapy marathon; and KRAB, Jack Straw, and/or Lorenzo have bought "the house across the street" at 9026 Roosevelt Way NE. The house is described as having a lawn and "three luxurious trees" where one can get out of the sun, sip julips and trade drinking stories.

Jun 3 to 4, 1967

Group Therapy Marathon - The location of the session was the "house across the street". Wires were run from the studios, up the phone poles and over the Roosevelt traffic. In case of conversation wandering into subject matter or language inappropriate for broadcast, there was a tape delay, with a mute button, and volunteer engineers at the ready to press said button. (The program guide for May 20 to Jun 4 is missing from the archive.)
