KSHE Klassics, Nov. 27th, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ John Ralston Saul: Muzak: A public noise neither requested nor listened to by individuals. It is the descendant of a school of public relations invented by the Nazis.

What a pain in the arse this computer schtuff is. Up until about an hour before the program was to begin, i had no Internet connection. Diagnostics proved it to have been a server problem, which was resolved around 8 a.m., thereby enabling to enjoy one of the highlights of my week, i.e., this program. But there were further probs. In the middle of Genesis's "A Trick Of The Tail," my default browser, Pale Moon, decided to stop playing the audio stream. The Internet connection was fine, so i tried my secondary browser, Vivaldi. Nope, no luck there, either. WTF (i said to myself). I had to listen to the rest of the program on my phone, except that -- just as the show was winding down, my Internet connection died there, too. Grr. (It's still pretty intermittent as i write this.)

Anyway, today's program was excellent as always, but John Ulett is on holiday and there was no presenter apart from the man KSHE calls "Otto Mation." I knew he was going on hols, from the ten minutes i'm able to listen to the Morning Rock Show before i have to leave for work during the week, but i thought maybe he'd pre-record it. I know he loves doing the show -- he told me when i met him.
