Here is last Friday night’s (2013-10-11) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click, once you’re there.

And here are some links to to other things to listen to and/or look at and/or play with, mostly that I found thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

The debt ceiling explained in comical sketch form.

How they work on those 250,000-volt power lines between cities without shutting them off first.

How to be Goofy. Or Pooh, or Tigger, or, really, Chuck E. Cheese, if you want to. “Close the fur after the shoes are tied.” “You’ll need help now putting on the head.” Etc.  Also, “Never talk.”  And, “Never strike or kick a child, even if he punches you in the crotch.”  And, “If you spill a patron’s bags, don’t stick around and try to help. Run away and report to your supervisor.”

Nature black & white in tooth and claw.

Whereas there actually is a real human skeleton in the little blue car. This video makes me wonder if there’s something, anything, that I do that seems as goofy and incompetent to someone else as this driver seems to me. Probably there are lots of things. Science has shown that the very skills we need to tell how good we are at something are the skills we need to actually be good at it. So the better you think you are, the worse you turn out to really be. And that’s true for everything, not just driving.

Brave young people go where you’re not supposed to go, and they bring back pictures.

Brave young people stick around for fifty or sixty years, and they bring back pictures.

Good for Theodora, who asserted, rightly, that adulterous women need not be executed.

“The machine is not treated with respect by mankind! BARP. Excuse me.” The machine sounds suspiciously like Kermit the Frog.

An interesting article about KZYX, by Doug McKenty, in the Anderson Valley Advertiser. (Ends with ========.) Accurate, to the point, and not whiny.  When I lost my gig at KMFB I contacted KZYX, followed all instructions, filled out forms, wrote a proposal, set up a website with downloadable airchecks, and did all required of me to get airtime at KZYX, and after nearly a year of nothing happening on that score I contacted Bob Young and was on the air at KNYO within a week, at my preferred time, with as much time as I wanted, and left alone to do my show without interference, and in another three weeks I’ll have been there for a year. That’s the way it’s supposed to go at a community radio station: 1. express interest in doing a show, 2. get allocated time, 3. get shown how to use the equipment (it’s no more complicated than your home stereo), 4.  appear on time every week and do what you’re there to do. That’s exactly how it should be.  I still want airtime on KZYX, but I’m not holding my breath about that happening any time soon.  Anyway, here’s Doug McKenty’s story:

Oh, and p.s.:  I have been lazy about archiving my shows. That’s corrected, so now you can always click on Links to Recorded Audio above and find your way to the entire folder of listenable and/or downloadable shows I’ve done for KNYO-LP in Fort Bragg. Mediafire is still a minefield of advertisements and confusions, but it’s free and reliable. I just checked and the pertinent buttons are prominent and they work in all four popular browsers.
