Punk legend Jello Biafra will play some records from his massive record collection today, Friday, June 8 between 3-4pm PST on KUSF 90.3 FM San Francisco. Alternative Tentacles is working with KUSF to set up some listener giveaways during Jello‘s guest DJ set, so mark your calendars!

Tonight Jello will be the MC for the 2nd day of Dirk Fest, a 2-day festival June 7th and 8th. The shows are in honor of Dirk Dirksen, the Pope of Punk, who passed away in November of 2006.

It’s all at the Great American Music Hall. Jello will not be doing a full spoken word performance at this show, he will only be making some comments between bands, memorializing Dirk Dirksen, and introducing the acts.
