“Like blowtorches behind each one of my eyeballs”

Dave the Spazz has been our Thursday night mainstay for many years now. Unfortunately, Dave has been having a rough time since he contracted COVID-19 back in March. Dave was interviewed about what he’s been going through by The Park Slope Reader in Brooklyn. Read it here. We’re rooting for Dave to feel 100% again and hope he returns to the airwaves very soon!
