Armistice Day (or) The Supremacy of Uruguay.

2016/11/12

      “This was the thought that was in his head: If it unhinged me to hear such a soft crooning sound slightly amplified, what might it not do to me to hear a far greater sound greatlier amplified?”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2016-11-11) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

Or, thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost, you can get it this other way, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

And  here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but otherwise worthwhile items that I set aside for you while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

A tap-dance routine that includes the dancer juggle-trading drumsticks with the drummer in a way that might dislocate your jaw in surprise and delight. Keep a hand on that; be careful.

She’s like a broken doll being flung around by a big crazy invisible child. Maybe it’s about America.

“Maybe intelligence is not that difficult.”

…But there’s still a difference between 1. creeping toward food that part of you has already found and 2. building, launching, orbiting, deorbiting and landing a spaceship and then also having a sense of humor about it. There are degrees of intelligence.

Two cars, both alike in dignity (and make and model and name) but made in two different factories, crash precisely into each other. One dummy driver is mangled and killed, the other figuratively walks away shaken but unharmed. The difference is /safety standards/.
