I was taping a Frank Zappa concert that was being broadcast on KPFT when they cut away to live coverage of the rioting, which continued well past the point at which my tape ran out. Wish I still had it, but it was lost somewhere along the way during the intervening years. Little did I know at the time that I'd eventually wind up living a few blocks away from Moody Park. It's somehow fitting that it has since become an early voting location for numerous elections.

I remember the TV coverage. It surprised me that a reporter for KPRC (Channel 2), Jack Cato, was stabbed while reporting on the riot. He survived but the idea that being in the midst of such a thing was dangerous, whether one was "involved" or a by-stander, really came home to me that night.
