KWOD 106.5FM is a Sacramento, CA, USA, radio station that was one of the highest-rated major-market alternative rock stations in the United States in the mid-'90s, according to Arbitron ratings. From 1977 to 2003, KWOD was independently-owned by "Royce International Broadcasting", headed by Edward R. Stolz III, and the result was a fresh and original radio experience. It started out as a jazz station, but evolved into a contemporary hit station by the end of the '70s. Its call letters referred to quadrophonic sound, as the station was one of the first to experiment with the technology, which never caught on.more...
At times, KWOD was among the top five rated stations in Sacramento during the '80s under the programming of Tom Chase and "Mr. Ed" Lambert. In 1991, the station remained a top 40 reporter to radio industry trade magazines, but began to mix in alternative music under the programming of Gerry Cagle and Alex Cosper. Cagle had also programmed notable stations around the country, such as KHJ in Los Angeles, and KFRC in San Francisco. Cosper had worked as Mr. Ed's assistant in the '80s, and at rival Top 40 station, KROY.
After Cagle's departure in 1993, programming decisions went to Cosper, who convinced Stolz to shift the format entirely to alternative music. He also hired the morning team of Shawn Cash and Jeff Jensen. The result was that the station rebounded from the bottom of the ratings to the top five again. Cosper remained with the station until 1996, and later...

Scene has many many definitions,more...
But the term "scene" or "scenester" that I am about to explain is "scene" as in THE SCENESTERS.
The world of the scene is about un-original children who claim a mouth less kitten as their own, as well as worship it. Their hair is very un-original because they stole harajuku, decora, J-rock, and ganguro styles from japan. But mainly they steal hairstyles from J-Rocker's and claim it as their own. They ALL dress the same and claim to be original. Audrey Kitching is their second god, as well as the whole trasy life talk. Kiki Kannibal thinks she is the shit, just because she has a bajillion "fake" friends. That doesn't make her famous. Fame is earned through REAL life through REAL efforts, and NO being a model that is alternative is not at the top. It just means you're getting there bot not almost. Flailing limbs all over the place is NOT called dancing (though it is entertaining). The scene used to be about original kids who dressed and acted however they want.
Heck I used to be scene but I was ALWAYS original and tried to set trends, and still do. If you enjoy art and like to create clothes then do it!! Instead of always going to Urban Outfitters and buy a shirt you like because your friend had it. NO! Be original, not a clone!!
And I am not hating on anyone but this NEW scene trend is starting to tick me off. I am sick and tired of seeing half-naked girls on their profile. And yes, the people you should worship are REAL models like Ka...
HIM is the ultimate badass spooky dealer of death. HIM was created in 1988 by Almight Banyan (me) as a simple sketch, and grew into a high school phenomenon. Since then, he has not been seen much, but his legend will live forever.more...
Although HIM underwent many physical changes (based on the amount of time alloted for each drawing) one thing remained static throughout: a round face with a mop of motley black hair (think Motley Crue), evil eyebrows and a huge sinister toothy smile. HIM slew his victims with all manner of weapons and accessories.
So far, HIM has slain the following beings (not in chronological order):
1. Heather (death by knife, the original HIM and original victim. Also the introduction of Joe's Book of Goony Blobs)
2. Gumby (death by spiked club)
3. Darth Vader (death by blaster pistol)
4. Some random Commies (death by machine gun)
5. Rambo (death by flamethrower)
6. Some random skiiers (death by skiis and swords, also the introduction of the sound-effect "BLAAL" used when someone is killed)
7. Freddy Krueger (...
A postwar Chicago blues scene without the magnificent contributions of Muddy Waters is absolutely unimaginable. From the late '40s on, he eloquently defined the city's aggressive, swaggering, Delta-rooted sound with his declamatory vocals and piercing slide guitar attack. When he passed away in 1983, the Windy City would never quite recover.more...
Like many of his contemporaries on the Chicago circuit, Waters was a product of the fertile Mississippi Delta. Born McKinley Morganfield in Rolling Fork, he grew up in nearby Clarksdale on Stovall's Plantation. His idol was the powerful Son House, a Delta patriarch whose flailing slide work and intimidating intensity Waters would emulate in his own fashion.
Musicologist Alan Lomax traveled through Stovall's in August of 1941 under the auspices of the Library of Congress, in search of new talent for purposes of field recording. With the discovery of Morganfield, Lomax must have immediately known he'd stumbled across someone very special.
Setting up his portable recording rig in the Delta bluesman's house, Lomax captured for Library of Congress posterity Waters' mesmerizing rendition of "I Be's Troubled," which became his first big seller when he recut it a few years later for the Chess brothers' Aristocrat logo as "I Can't Be Satisfied." Lomax returned the next summer to record his bottleneck-wielding find more extensively, also cutting sides by the Son Simms Four (a string band that Waters belonged to).
Waters was renowned ...
People who create Urban Dictionary entries for the sole purpose of attempting to defend whatever pathetic social clique they obediently follow like sheep, and/or bashing the opposite of their group (hippie-emo, grunge rocker-prep) only because it is that opposite. Most entries are poorly worded and contain bad enough grammar to make you actually want to hunt down the author and cut off his/her hands for the only purpose of making sure they're never able to express their ideas on the internet.
That UB-Moron just can't deal with the fact that no one likes emos, skaters, preppy kids, jocks, sluts, blacks, whites, asians, east coasters, west coasters, rappers, rockers, douchebags, popular kids, rich kids, poor kids, kids with an average amount of money, single kids, dating kids, nerds, cheerleaders, blonds, brunets, smokers, band geeks, or kids from certain areas as much as they do or do not.
