Or just simulcast Jim, and post process him. Olivia produces and plays her Secret Harmonies, which are not unlike the Radio Extravaganza.
  5:35pm The Real Ken:

Thanks for the Dylan!

That timeslot would work about as well as this one for me, maybe a bit better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm fred:

Two collage shows at the same time... sounds tempting to play them both (pop-up + winamp could work). That would be a kind of betrayal though
Avatar 5:38pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Sure thing not necessarily the real Ken

The complex Ken has a real Ken part and an imaginary Ken part. Either one may be missing, though

Alrighty then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm fred:

But that's only the Cartesian Ken. The polar Ken has a Ken distance and a Ken angle. The Fourier Ken has a Ken amplitude and a Ken phase, and is often related to a Ken frequency, which seems in its favor in this case
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Carmichael:

What is the Kenneth, frequency??
