We noted with sorrow the recent passing of novelist and ontological prankster Robert Anton Wilson. Among other works in a life spent raising the human spirit, RAW co-authored the ILLUMINATUS! trilogy with Robert Shea, and helped popularize the PRINCIPIA DISCORDIA, exposing a multitude of readers to Discordianism.
RAW's vision, sense of exploration, insistence on personal freedom and willingness to indulge in goofy humor were a primal influence on Radio Eris, and so we ask you to gather at our house on Friday, February 23rd to celebrate the man and his work, and partake of hot dogs with no buns.
