An Important Pekar Note

In 1991, the Santa Monica radio station KCRW broadcast an adaptation of American Splendor. Dan Castellaneta (a.k.a. the voice of Homer Simpson) was part of the performance, doing the voice of Harvey Pekar.
This Friday at 7:30 PM Pacific Time, KCRW will re-play this adaptation. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to archive it or put it on their website as a podcast. If you want to listen to this, there is only one shot. If you live in the Santa Monica area, you can listen to KCRW. If not, you can go their website and listen to it as a livestream. KCRW’s website can be found here.
