There is a band of this name - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Radicals_(band) - any connection? And what exactly is a DIY Infoshop? Sounds intriguing!

p.s. Love the colours - suits the name well.

Their location must be ideally suited for student trade. Nice shot. The color must be Florida #1.

Jeeze, I remember when we had to pay for radicals. I must be getting old.

Pam said...

What a fun and funky name. Cool color too.
I forgot that Florida A&M University was in Tallahassee.

Clytie said...

I like it! It's like ... the 1970's meets the technology age!

This sweet little shop would attract a lot more attention if it added a 40-foot long mural of a reclining Brizilian model. Yep, just the ticket.

This is such a nerdy name, I love it! If my dad were still alive, he would have loved it too — he was a chemistry professor. Located between two universities, I guess the name's not surprising :D

I love how it looks too!

Jacob said...

Great shop, great colors, great name! Have you been inside yet?

Lois said...

You're funny Frank!

Tanya said...

What a fun looking little shop, love the colors and sign!

Pacey said...

Love this sign. I'm thinking of the freeing the radicals in our systems. :)

Steffe said...

And there used to be a band called The New Radicals, but that's another story.

Actually, an infoshop isn't really a shop. It's more of a lending library/community space. People put on workshops there or gather to talk books, make and share art, that kind of thing. They do sell a few albums, but it's not really a store as such.

Lois said...

Thanks downtown guy! That's really interesting.

downtown guy said...

Anyone is Tally should stop in! I'm not associated with the folks running it, but I know they are welcoming and like to meet anyone and everyone from the community.

catchy name

James said...

This reminds me of the "DIY" or "do it yourself" thing that was a big part of the punk rock scene in So.California when I was a teen in the early 1980's
I wonder if there's a conection?

I am all for anyone who needs freeing, but I guess most of the radicals are now ageing hippies.
Great spot Lois!

Don and Krise said...

Like the name, like the simple sign. Probably a great place.

Frank: Whoa there big fella!

downtown guy said...

James: the phrase "DIY" predates the punk scene but still permeates it.

Leeds: the radicals in this case are mostly 20-something punk rockers, but there's a sprinkling of other sorts.

That's cool.
