Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-09-18) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

And here’s a link to Bernie Sanders’ 20 minute speech to a giant auditorium full of Liberty College kids on Monday. (I played it just before my show started). He’s tired and hoarse, but focused and right about nearly everything. So far.

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