Human pocket squares square off for cash, prizes, power and dames.

     “I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep.   Mom said, ‘Steven, time to go to sleep.’   I said, ‘But I don’t know how.’   She said, ‘It’s real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left.’   So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right.   My mother was there, and she said, ‘I thought I told you to go to sleep.'”  -Steven Wright

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-03-03) 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.

Besides all that, 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 new kind of battery that takes a thousand years to go dead. And making it safely uses up nuclear power plant waste, and it’s no more radioactive to handle (or to eat) than a banana.

  1. Poor man’s tip for how to keep your bed warm at night, w/o risk of burning or electrocution: I figured this out myself, after my Walgreen’s hot water bottle burst after only a few month’s use. Fill one or more half-gallon plastic milk jugs with hot water, then screw caps back on, firmly. I find three or four perfect for those frigid nights. Arrange on the bed, beneath the blanket(s): one near your feet, one near the back of your knees (if lying on your side), one near your shoulder blades, and one by your chest (which you can also hug like a stuffed toy, and use as a hand warmer). These bottles /never/ leak from the caps or anywhere else, and never burst. The smaller, Gatorade or juice type plastic bottles also work great, too. To see what I mean by not leaking from the cap area, just hold a filled bottle upside down over the sink, and shake away.
