KSHE Klassics, August 6, 2017

Quotation du jour ~ Les Dawson: Mind you, I've always been musical... Mother used to sit me on her knee and I'd whisper, 'Mummy, Mummy, sing me a lullaby do,' and she'd say: 'Certainly my angel, my wee bundle of happiness, hold my beer while I fetch me banjo.'

It was a pretty miserable listening experience this morning, folks. Not because of the music itself, which was mostly as good as ever. No, it was my Internet connection playing silly buggers again: frequent drop-outs and i know i missed at least two songs.

It was a fairly frustrating morning altogether, cyberspatially. A couple of fairly large downloads (the usual music & porn) kept failing, as did several uploads, and even remote content in emails wasn't loading. If i ever move to St Louis, which i fully intend to do when i win a few millions in a lottery (which is unlikely to happen as i never buy tickets), one reason will be that i'll be able to listen to this show without a DSL connection.
