One size fits all.

    “Man is an exception, whatever he is. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.” –G.K. Chesterton

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-10-17) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

Some more and older and rather better poetry than usual. Ebola terror debunkment. A goofily bloated Respect Mah Authoritah section, including wise advice as to exactly what to do and what not to do when pulled over by a cop, to minimize legal and death problems. Alex Bosworth! John Lewallen! Oni Hartstein’s criticism of the new entrepreneurs of haunted houses from hell. The triumphant return of the Comtesse DeSpair. Columbus (Cristoforo Colon) facts. The rise and fall of famous venerated penis parts and their counterfeits down through Christian history. [tiny print:] Notice of Memo of the Air’s soon proliferating to be on KMEC-LP in Ukiah as well as on the familiar KNYO-LP in Fort Bragg. (Familiar in the embarrassingly sensual and accustomed senses on top of the witch’s pet and the homeboy sense.) Let’s see, what else… It turns out that torture comes in a choice of flavors; who knew? And so on. A long and pleasantly weird show. And Boston Blackie at the end, so.

And here are some links to interesting not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

Some footage from The Great Martian War: 1913-1917. As historically and scientifically accurate as anything else on The History Channel.

Speaking of balls: “In the vacuum of space his suit had gradually inflated so that he could not get back into the airlock. The gloves had pulled away from his fingers. He decided to let air the air out…”
