Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-04-14) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

It’s one of those designs that, when you move your eyes slightly, makes it look like the parts of it are rotating or pulsing. And they put in in front of a cat to see if it would work on a cat. I love it that the cat finally goes /fuck this shit/ and tears the paper up.
