UPDATE 3:13 - He's been described as a "pagan voodoo cultist," but it's looking like Greacen's assertion might have legal traction. Potential violations include the Endangered Species Act (if certain species were present), pollution, and alteration of stream bed, bank or channel.
So it looks like the riverbar is not a legal no-man's land after all, and the potential fines are pricey. That song is enormously catchy, but is it catchy enough to keep Mendo's Fish & Wildlife people from acting?
[Also, it says here even off-roaders need to buckle up. Borrrring.]
UPDATE 12:30 - It seems to be the Eel. Lost Coast Outpost's Andrew Goff did some sleuthing. More info coming.
Ukiah-born McKenna Faith's latest video shows a good 'ol time being had on a riverbar in Cali-plated trucks. It's been alleged (very loosely, and anonymously at that) that the video was shot on the banks of our Eel River.
Joyless, America-hating Friends Of The Eel honcho Scott Greacen tells KHUM that while it's unlikely any salmon eggs were crushed during the making of the video, getting one's truck stuck in the river "does no favors to the fish." Also, the river has it hard enough.
That said, Greacen could not confirm that the video in question was shot on the Eel. Listen to his depraved screed below.

The Canadian musician Grimes makes mostly reasonable backstage requests, according to her Tumblr. Her needs are modest and green.
For instance, she's not a fan of single-use cutlery. And we all know that styrofoam's no good. And keep those water bottles out of her way.
Now just imagine her and her whole posse, prowling around backstage with Kleen Kanteens.
She does makes one semi-crazy request.

Originally from the stark Nevada backcountry, Arcata-based Caitlin Jemma stopped by KHUM for to sing songs with old-timey turns of phrase and express her affinity for Peruvian flutists.

Canada's best Americana band stopped by Larry Trask's show to discuss the last time they stopped by Larry Trask's show.
According to the Bills' Wikipedia page that I didn't just edit:
"The Bills are a high impact, acoustic folk music quintet from the West Coast of Canada. They have developed a unique sound, blending traditional influences from around North America and the rest of the globe in crafting their own vocal and instrumental music.
Formed in 1996 (as The Bill Hilly Band), they have performed extensively throughout North America and Europe.
When they play on legendary freeform station KHUM, the world sings along, and entire countries surrender themselves to frenzy."
