Now-defunct East Bay adult newspaper, originally part of the 'Berkeley Barb' but spun off as an independent weekly in 1978. Ceased publication in 2005. One of the first publications anywhere to print sex-worker advertising. For the last 10 years or so of its life, the weekly 'Spectator' ad was a regular business expense for many Bay Area pimps. Receives a mention in 'Hey Girl' from The Team's 2002 CD, 'Beyond the Glory.' Often called the 'Espectator' by Bay Area TV or TG escorts.
If Krissy's out of the game, what's her ad doing in this week's 'Spectator'?
