    “And I wish I would remember what my brother said, but I can’t, but I think we just said, It worked. I think that’s what we said, both of us. It worked.” –Oppenheimer

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-08-09) 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 came and inaugurated the Jack Leung piano on the air. First half an hour of the show, no waiting. Andrew Scully, etc. Alex called and the phone thing wasn’t working right, and mixing board settings didn’t help, and I didn’t want to start messing with the screw adjusts inside the phone thing, so there’s about forty minutes of nearly unlistenable crackly distorted conversation, dang it. I’ll let Jerry know and we’ll get it right for the next person who wants to use it.

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:

This is how people move, to flies. It’s why it’s so hard to catch a fly in your hand. Flies’ brains are way simpler than human brains, but their clock speed is faster.
