The KUT Family?

RECEIVED Mon., May 24, 2010

Dear Editor,
    So, in announcing the new "partnership" between KUT and the Cactus Cafe, Stewart Vanderwilt says, "We're all family” ["Cactus: KUT to the Rescue," News, May 21, and “Off the Record,” Music, May 21]. So I guess Big Daddy Stewart and Uncle Hawk should have it all taken care of from here on out.
    But considering the treatment of long-standing "family" members Larry Monroe (20-plus years at KUT), Paul Ray (20-plus years), and John Aielli (40 years!) last summer, I would say these newly adopted siblings might want to watch their backs. A family like that usually has monikers such as Gambino or Corleone attached to it.
