In 1973, Frank M. Robinson wrote a short story titled "The Radio" about his encounter with dishonesty in the Haight of the late Sixties. My friend Rick Berry was planning to illustrate it. Richard didn't get around to it for a while, so I picked it up and knocked out this tempera painting in about two weeks. In Touch magazine published it in the summer of 1974. The original is 8.5 x 11" on masonite. It's actually two panels joined together at the top of the dark grey field, which is heavy graphite.
