      “You’re a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock hurtling through space. Fear nothing.” –Alan Watts

Here’s the 7-hour-plus recording of last night’s (2016-04-08) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep.

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.

You used to be able to watch this sort of thing on teevee after school. Sometimes they were on roller skates, bashing each other with their hips and elbows and getting each other in headlocks and ass-over-teakettle crashes. That would sell, again, now. Betty is still alive; they could get her involved.

You might remember the Segway company owner died by his own Segway. He Segwayed right off a cliff.

…Well, I read where someone wrote in favor of a woman’s bid to rent out Segways on the Coast Trail, because the writer said he knew crippled veterans who would really like that. And I wondered if people too crippled to walk would really do well to ride a rented Segway on a trail. So I looked up “YouTube Segway crashes”.
