KSHE Klassics Show, June 18, 2017

Quotation du jour: Albert Einstein: When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity. 

This morning's show just flew by but, well, it wouldn't be Sunday if i didn't have technical problems that i don't seem to have on any other day. I had a bit of trouble tapping into KSHE's audio stream this morning and missed the first few minutes, which meant that i didn't hear most of "Sepia Sister" by Shoot (or is it "Shoot" by Sepia Sister?). It didn't overly bother me, though: not exactly a major classic after all. Or even a major Klassic. But with my secondary browser, Avast's Safe Zone, it worked immediately. Not sure what happened there, because the last time i listened to KSHE (Thursday), Vivaldi worked fine.

But the BSOD which meant that i missed George Harrison altogether was a bit of a bore -- yes, netio.sys failed again. Shit.

Anyway, here's the playlist -- not an exceptional edition, but still the best program on the wireless. (Younger readers may not know that "wireless" is an old term for "radio." In actual fact i'm so wired the rear of my desk is spaghetti-like.)
