Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-05-30) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click. It’s high school graduation time and also election time, so of course this show includes the Firesign Theater record Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me The Pliers. Also there’s another Firesign Theater surprise hours later, which the above quote hints at.

And here are some links to other things you might get a kick out of, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

I got a 28, a pretty good score, which surprised me because in real life I usually feel like I have no idea what others’ mental state is. (Be sure to answer all the items –guess if you have to– or the scoring won’t work.)
