KSHE Klassics Show, April 23rd, 2017

Quotation du jour: Abraham Lincoln ~ The people -- the people -- are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts -- not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.

Not a spectacular show on Sunday: no Rory for one thing, but also nothing by Jackson Browne, Billy Joel or Steely Dan, who usually appear every week. But it's still the best show on radio (that i know of). Remarkable for the fact that i was able to listen to the entire show without having any computer problems, too!

The KSHE Klassics Show, Apr. 16th, 2017

Quotation du jour: Keith Richards (on Chuck Berry) ~ He once gave me a black eye for daring to touch his guitar. Quite Right!!! I called it Chuck’s greatest Hit.

Some people (no names, please) have expressed a certain dubiety when i state that this radio program is consistently the highlight of my week. So, for the skeptics, here's a day-by-day breakdown of my week.

Monday: groceries and laundry, followed by a trip to the Beer Store and then an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

Tuesday: Came straight home after work. Ordered a Caro Emerald CD online. Had a frozen TV dinner, and watched another episode of TBBT.

Wednesday: Can't remember Wednesday. I think i went to Quiznos for a sub, and probably watched another episode of TBBT.

Thursday: I went to Kelsey's for a couple of pints. Almost every time i go there i regret it. The service is terrible, i don't like many of the people who work there. Arrived home to find that the Caro Emerald CD i ordered on Tuesday had arrived and it's a delight from start to finish, so, okay, that was a highlight.

Friday: Good Friday spent at work, earning double-time-and-a-half. Went to Kelsey's again; regretted it again. Spaghetti & meatballs for dinner and watched the DVD of "The Sweeney." It was all right but nothing more than that.

Saturday at work was pretty easy as it was my short day. I did have a bit of a laugh at the kitchen team: four hopless individuals, it was fairly busy and they were so disorganised, crashing into each other and fighting for space, it was ludicrous. Did groceries afterwards, went to The Beer Store, ordered Domino's pizza for dinner and watched an episode of "Cheers."

KSHE Klassics Show, April 2nd, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ Jimi Hendrix: When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

Aargh, he expostulated.

No, not over the content of the program (although, a lot today could hardly be called "klassics") but over the computer problems that seem to beset me every friggin' Sunday -- but rarely on any other day. (Last Sunday was a rare exception.)

My old friend netio.sys crashed the computer twice before the show began and once during. Googling the problem suggests that this could well be a driver issue, but i ran a driver updater several weeks ago and it didn't seem to help. I uninstalled that updater this morning and downloaded a different one. I haven't run it yet but we'll see if it does any good.
