Wow! Fantastic stuff, James. That was 2006? Sounded more like 1974. That’s radio!
Might be a good idea for you to do music oriented podcasts every so often. Mona and Jay’s classical music segment was very good and such a breath of fresh air!
What about Ricochet taking a break from the relentlessly political and just go art!? Why are Rembrandt’s portraits great? What about Turner’s late watercolors?
*sigh* I remember the first “microphone” I had. It was a pair of earphones… we plugged it into the wrong port, and that’s when mom explained that the make-stuff-vibrate-to-make-sounds stuff is also able to be-vibrated-to-record-sounds.
I’m pretty sure I remember listening to this in a 120 degree room, calibrating anything that didn’t mind the heat and looking forward to getting off duty so I could go hang out with that cute guy from the geek bunch….. (Now my dear husband.)
This was not actually intended to be published quite yet. So consider it a sneak preview. New episode later this week.
Great time. Thanks, James.
I thoroughly enjoyed that Diner episode. James is brilliant. Being a music fan I can relate relate to several of James’s comments:
Looking forward to more episodes.
Wish I took note of that web site he mentioned that catalogs the audio verite.
What a fun time….thanks
It was a great walk down memory lane, and knowing that new stuff is coming is icing on the cake!
Wait for the Christmas shows. Ricochet culture!
Most fun a gal can have that’s not illegal (yet), immoral or fattening…Diner fare without the guilt. Thanks, James!
Wonderful and refreshing! What a treat!
