Devil Girl from Mars.

2015/01/17

“When a woman behaves like a man, why doesn’t she behave like a nice man?” –Edith Evans

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-01-16) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click. This was my 879th weekly Memo of the Air show, my 110th for KNYO, in this case another remote broadcast via the mighty $100 refurb shoebox computer, the theater’s cast-off mixer and my homemade microphone all in Juanita’s house. I guess it’s settled: for the forseeable future I’ll be going back and forth anyway, and this time was by remote, so next week will be from the office on Franklin Street, and so on, a regimen sure to keep the brain supple and the glands producing at peak efficiency, as the late Dr. John Romulus Brinkley* might say.

You’ll hear an Alex Bosworth story about coming of age. Russell Brand eviscerates Fox so-called News’ bellicose warmongering clown Judge Judy. There’s a long section about *Dr. Brinkley, the goat gland transplanting, snake oil, /and/ border-blaster 1,000,000-watt Mexican-radio guy of so long ago. I also read from several MCN listservs– the Announce list, of course, the local swap shop; the Discussion list; the KZYXtalk list about the coming shakeup at that station. Master Yang accordiates, the Mills Brothers, Melanie Safka, Ruth Etting, the Boswell Sisters (including Connie, before the acrimonious split over handsome cad Don) sing. /The/ Julie London sleep-talks Louie Louie (not “me gotta go” but “/I/ gotta go”). And more. And then some more, and then Boston Blackie. A complete, nutritious diet– minerals, vitamins and fiber.

Besides the show, here are some links to striking but not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

These people, as dumb as a sackful of hammers, are paid brilliantly and have skiing vacations and live in nice houses with people to come in and clean up after them. This is like Fox News selling clothes.

I was learning about the favorite candies of different countries, and the video narrator mentioned a sexy ad for a British candy called Flake. So I went and looked at that, and it was interesting, but not as interesting as this.

The only important rules seem to be just don’t be grabby. /Don’t reach over the booth and grab the next guy’s head/ and /Don’t grab your date’s ear (especially not in a way where your finger goes into it)./ The rest are not a big deal, in my opinion. In fact, I like the stocking one. There’s nothing wrong with that.
