     “The best thing I’ve figured out is to just let things get really awful and wait for the joke. There’s always a joke lurking in the darkest shit.” –Steve Almond

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-07-28) 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, 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:

Watch this short video of detected earthquakes in Oklahoma since 2004 and take a guess when fracking really started up in earnest. Then see The Two Jakes (sequel to Chinatown).

Now that the Barnum & Baily Circus is no more, here are some pictures of it.

Schlager, a medley of which. This is a rare example of video actually /benefiting/ from aspect ratio distortion, though it would be even further improved by random fluctuation in the aspect ratio. I think I’ll do that and show you next week.

And that’s it. Think of this when your friends try to drag you onto some obviously crazy ride. “Come on! You’ll have fun! Don’t be a chicken!” I’d rather live on my feet than die chopped in half and flying through air scented with diesel generator soot, teenage deodorant and fair-food vomit. I’ll be in the exhibit hall appreciating the competitive macrame and the giant six-foot-wide surrealistic San Francisco made of toothpicks and bread dough. And Star Wars airplanes made of Legos. And paintings of a cat sleeping on a horse.
