Rented a tent? Patted a pan!

2018/12/15

    “All-new for 1922, the fabulous Hispano-Suiza H6B Skiff-Torpedo Lightning Phaeton flivver with two-tone flesh-colored tyres, reversible fur top, life-size rampant faceted goose ornamentation both front and rear, driver’s side bas relief of Salvador Dali as Jesus Christ in fancy dress as the middle section of a vaudeville pantomime horse and, underneath, optional self-contained five-horsepower steam-activated klaxon to abso-bloody-lutely frighten away pesky rodents. Take ‘er for a spin and see what all the fuss is about.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2018-12-14) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back about a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and lower yourself slowly into deep memory. Slowly, now, so the shock of the cold doesn’t stop your heart. Or just scream like a girl and jump in and get it over with; that’s the way I do it.

Automation plays on KNYO just before MOTA, so I always put on something early to make sure I’m connected properly to the transmitter(s) before I start yammering away. Usually I remove that buffer from the recording, but this time it’s special, so it’s still there. It’s the weird-jazzy audio from a government educational animated film about handling seafood, from sea to table, to maximize freshness.

(That pre-MOTA time, and more, is available every week. In fact there are several good airtime slots on KNYO just waiting for you to come and do the show of /your/ dreams, play your music collection, expound upon your particular flavor of conspiracy theory, invent a new kind of radio show, teach what you know, or really whatever. Do it, I dare ya.)

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and safety-related items that I set aside for you while gathering last night’s show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

The helping agency was busy; there were not enough chairs in the waiting room, so after waiting for hours, holding her little baby, she quietly sat down on the floor. Helping officials told her there’s no sitting on the floor here, lady. She said, Please let me just sit for a minute, we’ve been here so long, I’m tired. They said, Get up or else! She said, Else, then. They called the cops, and the cops swooped in to protect and serve. Observe:

A picture like this always makes me uncomfortable. I think of her shaving there and I imagine her cutting herself, the blade cutting into the flesh, and I flinch away from the image.
