Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Well, can you? Look closely. No, more closely. Who do you think it could be? Which well known local music personality do you think posed for this album cover at the behest of his father, who just happened to work in the marketing department of Del Monte at the time. Any guesses? Drawing a blank? Hint: This individual (arm raised, next to the dog) is fairly high profile and answers to a single syllable name. Suspicion killing you? Give up? Follow the jump to find out who it is.

If you guessed Alf host of KTCL's Locals Only show (yeah, right, sure you did!), pat yourself on the back. If you didn't, don't feel bad. We couldn't remotely figure out who the hell it was when posed with the same query earlier this afternoon -- despite the fact that we had lunch with the guy and he was standing right in front of us!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
