Bad Lilas take over Jam Thursday night

Although Humboldt County has lost Lila Nelson to bigger cities and brighter lights, a few brave men have taken up the mantle of her memory, specifically, her “Bad Lila” radio personality, formerly of KHUM 104.3 FM’s Sunday afternoons. (“Good Lila” began the day with an all-acoustic show.) How does she feel about The Bad Lilas?

Lila says, “The dichotomous good/bad Lila persona rift was years in the making, a comment on the ever present virgin/whore double bind experienced by women all over the world. I just hope these ‘Bad Lilas’ don’t cheapen it with mudflap girl images. Ha. Those are good guys though, and great musicians.
