Monday eve as I write. Just a day away from 78rpm majesty! Once again, Courtney plans to blow the proverbial lid off the proverbial hypocrisy of WFMU DJs who can't distinguish mediocre music from bad. Not that it matters — both are in heavy rotation on WFMU's playlists.

That Model 22 is a pretty good nose-shaper but I would opt for M. Trilety's newer Model 25 which has so many superior qualities that it surpasses all his previous shapers and other Nose Adjusters by a large margin.

Kidding aside, we know that really does go on on some of the programs here. Sometimes it's not about ENJOYING the music, but sometimes about learning of its existence, completeness, amazement rather than amusement.
