The Thief Lord of CCMTP.

2020/01/25

     “And thus the whirligig of time brings in his revenges.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2020-01-24) 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 awhile. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet, though the farther back in time you try to go, the less likely it is to work right, just like real life.

This show begins with Community Center of Mendocino Theater Project’s /The Thief Lord/ read live at KNYO as a radio drama, for like the table reading of getting ready to do the play on stage soon, next month, I think; I’ll let you know when I find out more. The reading runs about an hour-and-a-half. It’s a magical detective love story of danger, Italian orphans, daring, intrigue and betrayal– and stealing things, such as the gryphon-wing-shaped crucial part of a weird antique merry-go-round that makes the old young and the young old, whether they like it or not. And afterward, there’s the rest of a regular Memo of the Air show. Not too shabby, eh?*

Besides 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:

Yay, science! A clear path to a universal cancer treatment. (And if you still hate science, you’d still be free to pray to the Kali or Zeus, or get a therapeutic air massage or an equally noninvasive psychic surgery in Singapore, or go to to Tijuana and have all your teeth pulled out and eat powdered peach pits and drink diluted teaspoonsful of hydrogen peroxide during the full moon, and then later on claim that it was the magic treatment that did the trick.)
