“Because someone inconsiderate created an unsanitary condition, the windmill green is closed until further notice.” –Mr. Puttz’ Mini Golf

    Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-02-21) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

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

Is it just noise, or what /is/ it? I don’t care. Turn it on and turn it up. Michael Rolfe Gira and the Swans, in a hall packed full of people. The link that sent me there read, “Michael Rolfe Gira is 60 today. Don’t tell me /you’re/ too tired to do something.”

Scenes like this always remind me of Michael Moorcock books, like /The Final Programme/, and the series that includes /The Land Leviathans/. There’s always a (Barnaby or Jerry) Cornelius character, and a Mrs. Persson, and a confusing revolution, and a city or two in flames.
