KSHE Klassics Show, January 22nd, 2017

Quotation du jour ~ Christopher Hitchens: One of the beginnings of human emancipation is the ability to laugh at authority. It is an indispensable thing.

I have one major problem with listening to this program online -- and, i hasten to add, this is not a problem with the show itself, but with the outfit that streams the audio, They delete the local St Louis ads and insert songs of their own choosing instead, often wildly inappropriate and often entirely detestable. I mean, "Play It Loud" by KISS must be one of the worst songs in the history of Western civilisation, but, lucky me, i get to hear it every week.

Also, as they don't stream their audio to Canada, i have to use a VPN to listen -- it costs me $10 a month and well worth it -- the VPN tells them i'm connecting from the USA. New York City, i think, judging by the ads they also insert, many of which seem to be aimed at affluent Manhattanites. It wasn't always thus. When i was first told about KSHE over four years ago, i didn't need a VPN and i was able to listen to St Louis ads -- which were one of the things that made me interested in the city!

The first song, the Charlie Daniels, was the first song that John Ulett (the host) played, when he started at the station forty years ago.
