The KSHE Klassics Show, July 16, 2017

Quotation du jour ~ Maya Angelou “Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”

Another excellent edition. As i've written before, if i could find a radio station that played this kinda schtuff – classic rock that you rarely hear anywhere else – i might never leave my nest. (But, really, John. Two versions of “Arms Of Mary”? The Sutherland Brothers' version, which was the original, is excellent and Chilliwack's cover version is pretty darned good, too, but, why?)

Most radio stations have playlists of maybe 300 songs, and so of course you hear the same music over and over. KSHE, during its normal programming hours, is, i admit, a little like that too. I like to hear the unexpected, and i invariably do on Sunday mornings.

(There's an online station, also from St Louis, St Louis Classic Rock dot com ( i listen to occasionally and they pride themselves on their playlist of well over five thousand songs. But a lot of what they play is obscure – and deserves to be!)

As a footnote, i was once again able to listen to the show in its entirety without any of the computery troubles that used to beset me on Sunday mornings (but rarely at any other time). I don't think that i did anything to solve the problems other than general maintenance, but i'm certainly not complaining.
