DJs at San Francisco's Pirate Cat Radio are wondering what's going on with the Mission station -- and whether it even exists at all -- after founder Daniel "Monkey" Roberts abruptly pulled the plug on things in a staff meeting earlier this month.

No one's quite sure who owns the station, or to whom their dues are going -- or even where Roberts is.

The issue began in September, when a Craiglist ad seemed to put the station up for sale. Check out the full story over on our news blog, the Snitch.  And also see our cover story about Monkey and Pirate Cat from last year.
