5 Year Anniversary of Cliff Getting Hit

KHUM, Radio Without the Rules / Tuesday, July 10, 2012 @ 7:44 a.m. / Humboldt

Five years ago to the day, KHUM Morning DJ, Cliff Berkowitz was struck and severely injured while bike commuting along the 101 between Ferndale and Eureka. Ironically earlier in the day, Cliff interviewed Hank Sims (of the North Coast Journal at the time) about an article he wrote about the fight to get a trail between Eureka and Arcata. In the body of the interview Cliff talks about the inherent dangers of biking along the freeway and the close calls he had to that point. Photo courtesy of the Times-Standard. Listen to the interview below.



UPDATE, 8:22 a.m.: Audio pack rat John Matthews unearths the subsequent interview that Hank Sims did with Berkowitz from his hospital bed at St. Joe's, two days after the accident:
