thrown off for a bit hearing the show while doing the dishes. Now I see. And remember last year.

We hope you didn't break any dishes mark...

This almost seems kind of like when Clay and Fabio do a similar thing at times on Thursdays. Is it going to be as wacky?
  Sat. 9/1/12 6:31pm Ike:

"Type Q-Minus" -- ha ha, I'll have to use that to describe myself (in real life anyway, not on the comments).

RIP Hal David, age 91.

Glad to amuse you Ike and thanks for the news Ken - not great news but 91 years, not a bad run...

I think I am finally coming down off of a strange blue moon trip and this show is just right for that right now. I am affected by those astral things. Like a where the heck am I wolf.

Glad you didn't dump just because it slightly messes up the sound (makes it all stretchy and weird, a bit like bad MP3 artifacts) until the buffer is re-built.
