Yggdrasil (family size tube 10% off at Walgreens)

2015/10/17

      “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you don’t bring forth what is within you, what you don’t bring forth will destroy you.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2015-10-16) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

This is my 916th weekly Memo of the Air show, my 147th for KNYO Fort Bragg CA, and my first for KMEC Ukiah and Redwood Valley. Here’s the deal: from now on, the show starts at 9pm as usual on KNYO, then at midnight KMEC grabs it in progress and it’s on both stations from then till 3am, and then KMEC lets go and anything after that is only on KNYO again. Simple.

While the areas these two small stations cover is only a tiny portion of vast Mendocino County, that portion includes where seven or eight out of ten people in in the county live: Fort Bragg (KNYO-LP) and Ukiah/Redwood Valley (KMEC). This brings the numbers I can draw written work from back up to nearly what they were when there was KMFB (R.I.P.). So I’m grateful to not only Bob Young of KNYO but to Sid Cooperider and Ed Nieves of KMEC for saying, /Sure, why not?/ instead of the other thing, and inside my head I’m hopping around in a goofy little happy-dance. I’m sure that will wear off in a few days when something unforeseen flies into the soup, but for now I want you to picture Dom DeLuise in Mel Brooks’ /The Twelve Chairs/, where he’s on top of a tower of rocks with what he thinks is the chair with the treasure inside, and he waves his arms and belly around and gleefully shouts to God, and to the men below who have been unable to keep the chair for themselves, “YA YA YA! YA YA /YA/!”

In a moment he’s going to rip the chair cushion open and find out that it’s not the right chair after all. But for now:

“YA YA YA! YA YA /YA/!”

Anyway, here are links to a few 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.

Same great look, same great flavor, for 500 million years.

Okay, this looks like mostly ground-effect, but it’s so cool I’m gonna call it flying.

And a copiously captioned exploded view of the Saturn 5 rocket that took members of our upstart species to another place beyond the sky. We’ll make other rockets, but we don’t have the ability to make this kind of rocket ever again. We’ve lost the technology.
