Is there a tear in your eye, cuz the end is nigh? You’re not alone gentle freaks and humble geeks! For over a decade, from the basement of Pier’s mother’s Foccaceria, Show Without End! has broadcast between midnight and 4am every Monday (and occasional Thursday), just after Barry Weatherjam’s Bagpipe and Kazoo Jamboree Hour, to various Bay Area public access channels, and to homes across the country with mighty rabbit ear antennae. And in the hour (or so) before the careening asteroid collides with our trembling planet and rear ends us into the cold vacuum of the Milky Way, Pier would like you to consider yourself welcome to share the end…on the final broadcast of Show Without End!
Dec 13th and 14th @7pm!

From wh auden's September 1, 1939:
"Defenceless under the night /Our world in stupor lies; /Yet, dotted everywhere, /Ironic points of light /Flash out wherever the Just /Exchange their messages: May I, composed like them /Of Eros and of dust,/ Beleaguered by the same /Negation and despair/, Show an affirming flame."
