The Belkovski exercise.

    “Have. A good. Grope.” -Darren Nichols

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-07-12) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-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 hear older shows yet.

Max the Piano Player couldn’t come in after all. I’m just letting you know in case that’s the only thing you were interested in. To save you downloading the show and being disappointed. We’ll reschedule. It’s a pretty good show, though Maxless. Nobody says /It’s all good/ anymore, but I overcompensated with Raymond Scott and Louis C.K. and Rachel Bloom, so it’s all good.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:
