Love From Mars – San Francisco – 1987

San Francisco TV Repair Shop Store Window, 1987

There was this really cool old TV Repair storefront on Guerrero in the Mission in the 80’s. I thought it was kiddie corner to Cafe Babar – which I frequented often back then, which was at Guerrero and 23rd.

There was some goofy rumor that Philo T. Farnsworth – the father of TV – from San Francisco had something to do with this shop – but I sort of remember it was owned by an old hippy or other eccentric bugger.

My friend and band mate rented a room in the building above and that was an old dentist office complete with frosted glass doors with the dentists name on them.

For whatever reason, I have fondly remembered this silly photograph – it does mean a lot to me – now its “old San Francisco” and I was a part of it.

I wanted to write a song that is as “out there” as this store front display.
