“When it seems like it’s everybody it’s probably you.”
Bob Young came with an engineer friend of his, who told me his name both times I asked, so you’d think I’d remember it and could tell you [insert emoticon for palm-to-forehead here], and they repaired and replaced things (new sound card, new router, etc.) and moved the broadcast booth’s computer away from WinXP (!) and to smarter, svelter Linux and installed an entirely different and new automation and on-air software suite, and it became problematical as these things do, and wasn’t ready to just use by the time my show was to start, but eventually, after a lot of tapping and swearing and digital stuttering and test tone sequences, all was somewhat solved by a little after midnight. What I’m saying is, I didn’t get to do my show this week.

I’m sure everything will be copacetic by Friday the 18th. Ah, I almost forgot– we calibrated the signal chain to make live shows sound even better. So we’re going in the right direction and progress is being made. I’ll talk to you next Friday. Thanks for being interested. You’re a peach.
Meanwhile, here are some interesting things to look at and listen to and learn about, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites to your right.

What will likely kill you, depending on where you are, and if you live long enough to catch it.
And a tiger swimming in brilliant green algae.
