On the rooftops of London... er... I think I will go and get drunk now, my frontal lobes need anaesthetising ... just like Dick Van Dyke was drunk all the way through the shoot allegedly
  Wed. 4/4/07 1:22pm Ken:

Yep, I'm looking forward to the live comments, too. I'll also be adding pictures to each week's playlist, I hope I hope. I added a batch of pictures to last weeks playlist.. follow the previous playlist link below.
  Thu. 4/5/07 11:50am Fooch:

I only heard a small portion of your show yesterday, i.e., "People Like Us" doing "On the Rooftops of London," and I was blown off the roof, so to speak.

As regards the picture at the top of this page, I think most of us are mad as hell. Unfortunately, most of us are also too impotent not to take it anymore, so I guess it's status quo for the time being.

All the best,

Great God in heaven, Ken, who put the crank in your DJ chow that morning? This show's opener is what happens when you have too *little* caffeine? I'll save a link for when I really really need to wake up, but mostly I'm glad I wasn't listening live -- it might've killed me at 9AM.
  Sat. 4/7/07 8:00am Ken:

Jeff - Caffeine withdrawl is a hard cross to bear and it has unpredictible effects. As of this show, I had downgraded my usage from 14 cups a day to 3 cups a day in only about four days. It made me kind of tense and jumpy.
  Sat. 4/7/07 1:29pm Brian in Oregon:

Ken -- they are increasingly hard to find (here in the high desert anyway), but I recommend substituting caffeinated mints for your missing 11 cups of coffee -- much easier on the stomach!
  Thu. 4/12/07 9:53pm Ken:

Thanks Brian - But that defeats the porpoise. I am trying to cut down on caffeine.
