7/19/2011 The Pop Shop


Hunter Stockton Thompson was born July 18, 1937, in Louisville, Kentucky. The father of gonzo journalism left a literary legacy--literally trunk loads--of political features, personal letters and fiction. Tonight the Pop Shop celebrates the good doctor with gonzo-inspired pop. Pour yourself a Chivas rocks, sit back, and enjoy the ride!
