The Linux Show Returns

Filed under
Linux

From high atop the lofty tower of their new (but still secret) location in Chicago, Kevin Hill and Jeff Gerhardt announced today the long awaited return of THE LINUX SHOW.

The Linux Show, or TLS to its listener's, broadcasted weekly episodes of The Linux Show!! from September 1997 until December 31st 2004. Kevin and Jeff were also a regular fixture at events like Linuxworld Conference and Expo, and ISPCON.

Stated Gerhardt upon this long anticipated news, "we were off the air much longer than we ever anticipated and there was little we could do about it. It has taken many months of meeting with legal advisors to determine the best way to return to broadcasting without making the same mistakes or take the same risks of our past. We were very surprised to find out that just because you create a broadcasting entity and report news and opinion; that the First Amendment really only protects you from the Federal Government."
