The Quake, Rock of the 80's for the Bay Area...

In the early 1980's, I believe from 1982 to 1984, in the San Francisco Bay Area, there was one great radio station. "The Quake" was a true "new wave" station, during the "new wave" fad. It was truly relevant to it's time. They played everything from the B-52's to the Sex Pistols. Though short lived, it's mark was made. As a kid I went down a few times and sat in the studio audience for the Alex Bennett morning show, that featured many edgy comics, like Bobcat Goldwaith , and Tim Bedore. There was one album, put out by The Quake and Miller Beer called "Rock to Riches" (1984) that featured some local mostly one hit bands. I pulled out this record the other day for a spin, and decided to duplicate the logo, and make a t-shirt design. It came out cool, so if your interested, contact me for one.
