The Finch Files #110 – The Pluto Underground

Peter Finch has been a Bay Area radio staple for more than three decades at KMEL, KFOG and KGO radio in San Francisco. In 2014, he was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame. He hangs out with rock stars and kooky, interesting people. Follow him on Twitter HERE and at his website HERE.

In 1989, a group of scientists made it their mission to convince NASA to send a spacecraft to Pluto. They came to be known as the Pluto Underground. This is their story.
