Nilsson: "After the Beatles broke up, his escapades with John Lennon during the mid ’70s became the stuff of legend. And it was Ringo Starr who served as best man at his marriage to Una, the mother of Beau, Ben, Annie, Olivia, Kief and Oscar, six of his seven children (Zak, the eldest, was born of a previous marriage)."

Hi,
I just discovered your radio station yesterday from a documentary on Netflix; and, I am now a listener on the internet. I just tuned in to your show. It is great to hear women given a chance to be heard in music. Relatively speaking, men are disgusting pigs, (except for me), who ruin the planet. We need women to take over, to nurture and compensate for war, political defoliation, ugliness of the soul, and redundant irritating music. Burma Shave...

@Sem/JtotheK I started reading Pynchon's V in college, and loved it. Then I got a terrible stomach bug and decided I wasn't up to reading the loooooong stretch about wildebeests dying in the sun, and by the time I got back to it I'd lost any chance of picking up the narrative threads.

Cecile, get a female Pit Bull puppy as an assistant; and, you can co-rule the universe. Also, listen to "Amazing Grace 3.0 at saintvibiana.com and it might make you cry and/or inspire your dog to play harmonica. With God, all things are possible...

I believe that women are the superiors here. Oh yes there are some extremely feminine ones, but they are few. Women curve in the right places and usually don't require help with that. Women also seem to have more insight than a lot of men.
