The KSHE Klassics Show, May 15, 2016

Quotation du jour: Albert Einstein ~ The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

I missed last week's edition of the Sunday Klassics show -- the best four hours of radio anywhere (IMFFHO). Last Sunday was Mother's Day -- the busiest day of the year in my business -- and i had to work. (Anyone who is not scheduled to work on Mother's Day must be hopeless -- although we also had a few hopeless [read: useless] people working, too.) I tried to listen on my phone for a little while but it's such a noisy place and (as usual, duh) i had forgotten my earbuds, so i gave up.

But i was more than compensated this Sunday -- John Ulett (the host) presented a fabulous selection. I mean, all eighteen minutes of "Close To The Edge" by Yes? You don't get that anywhere else! (Actually, if you do, i'd love to know where -- please let me know in the comments.) Here's the playlist:
