      “Nothing destroys creativity as surely as being afraid to make a mistake.” –John Cleese

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2016-01-15) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

I want to put in a plug here for Safeway’s Signature-brand rosemary-and-olive-oil Triscuit-knockoff crackers. The best cracker ever, even with no cream cheese or prosciutto or anything. Just the plain crackers.

And here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but really worthwhile items that I happened upon while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right.

The violin-learning progress video I messed up the link to last week, that Bill Cornelius informed me took him to a dating site. It’s the violin video this time. I promise.
