Yesterday, rumors were swirling like a tweaker with glo-sticks that Energy 92.7, the city's preferred dance station with a gay bent, will come to an end. Turns out said rumors are, sadly, true. While calls to 92.7 have gone unanswered, word is that the station's new owner is a homophoobic meanie who stomps on puppies and rainbows. Or something like that.
According to SF Examiner's Eric Ross, there was "a big rumor going around [yesterday] that the new owner of Energy 92.7 is very homophobic and he fired a lot of the employees at the radio station." What's more, he compiled exhaustive Facebook research on the subject at hand. Here is just a sample of what went down yesterday:
