    “Peter, if you’re nothing without the suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” -Tony Stark

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2018-12-28) 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 nostalgicate till the cows come home.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and evocative 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:

You have heard the song, but you didn’t see this. The kinescope process turns everything interestingly creepy. Also, stay for the version after she got to be 73. Much less creepy. And the extended interview. Imagine the interview of /your/ life, in a kind of before-and-after like this.

Real image of a 50-mile-wide lake of frozen water on Mars. Over 530 cubic miles of water. That’s 600 trillion gallons.

Dogs of the sea. (When they are on land, though, leave them alone. In fact always leave them alone. This is deceptive. They are not always like that.)

The Mountain of the Cannibal God. I just realized that I know the Mendo-local actress who was once billed in the big time as “the new Ursula Andress”. (The original Ursula Andress is 82 now, and still happily married to Morey Amsterdam.)

Algorithm (there’s that word again) instantly accurately rates new scientific papers and presentations for validity, and it does it by /analyzing just the graphic layout of the papers, entirely ignoring the text./
