Are bees nature’s bitches?

2017/03/25

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-03-24) 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.

Major Mark Scaramella of the Anderson Valley Advertiser phoned and talked about his brief pre-military career as a theater organist in a theater with a motorized elevator to raise the majestic organ console, with him playing it, up out of the floor. Also, Paul Modic sent in a series of poetic stories. Zeke Krahlin. Scott Peterson. And Rich Alcott’s Attention Deficit News installment, this time from Lexington, Kentucky; he’s on his way to New Mexico to begin yet another chapter in his remarkable life. And the infamous White God episode of The Shadow, the one about a magnetic machine that can pull aeroplanes right out of the aer.

Jeff Wright bicycled across the threshold just after I signed off. He’ll be back in two weeks to tell you the details of his recent encounter with the dim, if not the dark, side of the U.S. postal system. I’m looking forward to that.

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:
