Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-03-27) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

Another live remote from Juanita’s apartment, in my pyjamas, and in my bedroom voice to avoid disturbing the neighbors. I understand some network dropouts occurred on the order of once an hour or so, triggering silence sensing, resulting in incongruous music from the covering automation stepping in for a few seconds here and there on the web stream and on the over-the-air signal. It’s not a huge deal, but Bob and Ken are working on solving it for next time, and for others, not just for me, and I appreciate it.

Everyone’s invited to Uncle Rusty’s retirement-from-radio bash at the KNYO storefront, 325 N. Franklin, Fort Bragg (CA) tomorrow (Sunday, 2015-03-29, 2pm and forward). Russ has been at KNYO since before the beginning. I’m going, and I hope I see yez all there.

Meanwhile, here are links to some not necessarily radio-useful but interesting items that I happened upon while putting my show together, that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.

Kurosawa’s movement.

As creepy music videos go, this isn’t a 10 out of 10 for creepiness but it’s plenty creepy. What gets me is a particular recurring dance move –a male dancer does it and then the singer does it a little later– of twisting a knee out to one side and falling, leg bent all wrong, on the back and back of the head. I just /bark/ in fear when it happens.

Interview(s) with Buckminster Fuller. (I saw him once, when he was a very old man and his grandson propped him up on the stage at the Luther Burbank Center and he answered questions from the crowd. If anyone deserves to have a carbon molecule named after him, it’s Buckminster Fuller.
