The KSHE Klassics Program, Christmas Day, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ Prince:  Music is spirit, it’s therapy. It makes me feel a certain way, and if played with conviction and soul, the same thing occurs in other people.

Sitting here battling a debilitating case of alcohol poisoning with my usual Xmas Day remedy: rum and egg nog. Insanity doesn't run in my family, as far as i know, but i'm working on it....

I discovered KSHE about four years and so of course this is the first time i've listened to the Klassics show on a Christmas morning, but i wasn't really surprised that there was no seasonal music included. As Uman said when the show began, some people aren't religious, many people aren't Christian, so it's business as usual. I'm glad i was able to listen to it at all, considering the technology nightmare before Christmas i've just come through (and which i intend to blog about later). Here's the playlist:

KSHE Klassics, Dec. 18, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ Bruce Springsteen: The best music is essentially there to provide you something to face the world with.

Well, it was another fuck-me-blind-tear-my-hair-out-smash-my-face-into-the-desk computer experience this morning. Ten minutes before the program was set to begin, my browser crashed. Not a complete disaster -- i could have listened on my phone (if my phone hadn't died on Thursday); i could have listened on my iPad -- i have the KSHE app. Erm, well, no, the app wouldn't open. I wound up have to re-boot the desktop PC and all went well after that, although i missed the first half of "Ride My See-Saw."

KSHE Klassics, Dec. 11th, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ H.L. Mencken (in 1923): On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

Yay, Uman played Rory this morning! Oh, and all kindsa other great schtuff.

I wrote recently, in one of these posts, that if i could find a radio station that played nothing but deep tracks from the classic rock era, i might never leave the house. Fortunately, for me and my paycheque (and for my employer, too!), i couldn't find one. Oh, there are loads of classic rock stations out there, but i found nothing as good as this.

I love St Louis! (My current plan is to return there for the 4th of July in 2017. My
 savings account isn't filling up quite as quickly as i had hoped, but it's seven months away, it should be a doddle.)

(As my regular reader will recall, i was beset by multiple problems with both my browser and my Internet connection last Sunday.)
