Cy Thoth assaulted the airwaves from his bunker deep inside the bowels of the majic mountain for seven years from 2006 - 2013.
"Let us ingest the pyromaniac mana of the under world hosts/and receive the unction of the narcotic carcasses of the ghosts/as we descend the spiral stairs and the circle of eternal return/to hear the voices of the damned & the possessed in the nether world...."
With these words Cy Thoth would prepare his audience for the assault to come, a non-stop violation of our consensual reality for four hours every "Thorsday" on kfjc. With his distinctive vocal delivery and super-impositions "a la William Burroughs and Gysin," Cy Thoth's Firebunker was required listening for anyone actively resisting the dominant paradigm during the dark years from 2006-2013.
2014 - 2020: Hear voices from the void and echoes from the bardo plane every Thorsday at kfjc.org where we will re-stream seven years worth of the Firebunker. Starting with his earliest show we will stream one show a week starting every Thorsday at 2pm. The shows will be available here for three weeks from their posting date.

March 26, 2020 - Firebunker 336 (original air date August 2, 2012)
Can we ever truly know this plane of existence? Across many cultures it is believed that reality is transitory and that mankind is doomed to be eternally hindered by misconception and obfuscation. As the veil of maya falls over the eyes and ears of humanity many pray for absolution and deliverance or seek refuge from the invisible spectre of death and decay that currently preys upon humanity. And now, let the illusion of serenity be shattered by the projects Vesicus, Haare, Monument of Urns along with a cache of others. It's KFJC, your source for substantiality.
March 19, 2020 - Firebunker 335 (original air date July 26, 2012)
As the worlds warlords maneuver the people towards oblivion and those that are able take refuge, we find ourselves driven to distraction and soaking up live radio broadcasts but also relishing in the radio of the dead. Perhaps we find that listening to Cy Thoth reminds us of far simpler times, though not always easy, they were remarkably innocent when compared to our present circumstance. Maybe we find the hypnotic sounds layered thoughtfully upon each other a welcome respite from the fear and hysteria so prevalent today like an audial balm for our woes. A spell of healing cast in to the present by our sagacious host that we might find strength and a renewed vigor to adapt and contend with the regular restructuring of our fragile and frought existences. So take a few hours to bask in an echo from the past, take solace in the familiar sound of our exemplar as he explores the myth of Orpheus and his magnificent lyre, and take shelter with the projects, Quiet Evenings, Leaving Earth, Mourner and a scourge of others. And a pox on all detractors of the mightiest station in the land, KFJC!
March 12, 2020 - Firebunker 334 (original air date July 19, 2012)
So, devoted Firebunker stalwart, we meet again at the nexus of delirium and bedlam to undertake the weekly sojourn of the sonic magi. The perspicacious among you will already be aware that this was the last week in 2013 that Cy Thoth existed in corporeal form, taking his last breath on Wednesday March 7th. Though sorely missed, his memory lives on in the drug-addled and fractured minds of his friends, fellow volunteers, and listeners. Let us bow our heads and say a prayer... to disruption and disorder, make a solemn vow to upend the dominant paradigm in whatever way we see most unfit, and to continue to honor the memory of perhaps the single most recognizable voice and proponent of artistic expression to grace the tempestuous air-waves of 89.7 FM. And thus we shall... celebrate and rejoice! With the projects, Gog, Badr Vogu, Thou, and a perverse procession of numerous others. Only on KFJC... the wave of the WEST!
