KSHE Klassics, May 7th, 2017

Quotation du jour: Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ Happy is the hearing man; unhappy the speaking man.

As my regular reader will have noticed, i did not post the playlist last week. Tech problems again, but for once, they weren't local. KSHE's audio stream must have been down -- i couldn't open it with my laptop, phone or iPad. It was fine the next day: i was able to listen to The Rock Magazine with no difficulty. So i don't know what happened on Sunday, it was very disappointing. I listened to Radio Paradise for most of the morning instead and heard some darned good music but it wasn't the same....

Radio Paradise, as you may or may not know, is commercial free and listener supported, and i am now a supporter. I have -- what's the word i'm looking for? Not "donated," they're not a charity. I have given them money once or twice but have just made arrangements to give them a monthly, um, er, support-type payment. I won't say how much -- not a lot but over the course of a year it should help. I felt i had to -- after all, they did, among other things, introduce me to my current musical obsession, Caro Emerald (, look, here's Caro:

On to this morning's program.

My router died yesterday and my laptop crashed twice before the show began -- the usual netio.sys failure -- but apart from a browser crash a few minutes into the show, which was easily fixed, i was able to listen uninterrupted and it really is the highlight of my week -- especially as work has become so depressing and i've virtually stopped going out for a beer at the end of my shift there. Not that i've become abstemious or anyfink -- god no -- but really, the only pub i want to go to, Bentley's, is a twenty-minute walk and the weather has just been so cold and rainy....

Oh, and i should warn you in advance: i won't be able to post a playlist next week. Next Sunday is Mother's Day, the busiest day of the year in the food poisoning industry, and i'll be working. I'll try to listen to at least some of the show on my phone, but i won't be able to compile a playlist.
