As usual, some music for your morning. Right now, it's Prince & The Revolution - Let's Go Crazy, in GLORIOUS AM STEREO!! :D
1650 AM, "Radio Free Connecticut"
Being a talk station, KDX is broadcasting talk.
"Free Talk Live" is talking about something to do with tax rules, but I haven't been listening very closely.
"Democracy Now" will be on next, but I don't know what the topics will be.
Being Monday, Harry Shearer "le Show" will be on, followed by "Law and Disorder" with the civil rights attorney hosts, and "Atheist Experience" which is always fun because Christians call in and try to explain why the atheists are wrong.
I am thinking about doing a Blare OnAir live show from the TeamSpeak room because I have many ideas to talk about. Will you have time to join me?
Druid Hills Radio AM-1710- Dade City, FL. Unlicensed operation authorized by the Part 15 Department of the FCC and our Resident Hobby Agent.
Right now the LPH.
Jim Henry HBR Radio 1610, serving Honey Brook, PA. and NW Chester County.
"Loud and Clear", 2-hour news program from the Washington DC studios of Radio Sputnik.
Meanwhile, sitting at the control desk, we are calculating a second radio station to be launched very soon.
For several years I've been threatening to open Radio Station KHZ as an "indoor antenna experimental station", and the idea has grown to use KHZ both for that purpose and function as a permanent 2nd station.
We face an ice storm this afternoon.
Big Picture Science
In a matter of minutes it will be the weekly "Philosophy Talk" program live on stage with an audience, two Stanford philosophy professors and their special guests hold a mock debate on some aspect of existence, belief, psychological theories, politics and what-not, never coming to a conclusion.
Then the weekly TUC Radio with Maria Gilardin tonight bringing Part 2 of a speech from Daniel Elsberg comparing the nuclear scare during the Vietnam era to the rising nuclear tensions under today's crackpot regime.
Old Time Radio
Days later since we last checked in, Harry Schearer and his "le Show" is on, as he files through a number of recent events and makes wry comments, as he has done for over 30 years on radio!
You may be aware of Mr. Shearer, the voice behind many of the characters on "The Simpsons" and movie actor in several Christopher Guest comedies.
I'm just back from a trip to "Save-So-Much", my food store of choice, and noticed that the customers all looked closer to death than they had the last time.
Except for this one young woman in dark blue medical garb with her extraordinary figure and stunning walk. I was impressed that she'd made it this far without being weighed down by motherhood several times over. Maybe she knows a guidance doctor who protects her from the vulgar world.
And now back to the program.
Up early to check on possible ice storm but it looks dry out on campus.
For about the past two weeks the all night stretch on KDX has been filled by what the artists call "Dark Ambient", available in large quantities free under Creative Commons license from the Internet Archive.
In general it sounds like air standing still or a river that barely moves in the darkness where you can't see it. For me it is extremely compatible with sleep and the silence of the night. I'd like to dedicate a whole station to it, which is why I've been talking about running 3 different stations. It's a complete departure from the nasty juvenalia pouring out of deplorable D.C.

The Hour of Slack
In praise of BoB with the Reverend Ivan Stang and the Church of the Sub-Genius, clinging just shy at the edge of reason holding its place as trouble in times of turmoil.
The Stuphfile Show
Peter Anthony Holder with news you wonder why the mainstream media never mentions because it would lighten things up if they did, plus the Idiot of the Day.
From the S.E.T.I. Institute, The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence if not Extra-Intelligent Terrestrials, a fun-hearted romp around science and church-avoidance breakfast companion.
Point of Inquiry
Today a lecture "Is the Bible Mein Kampf" by Dr. Robert Price.
A day of programming so rich you'll hold a radio to your ear to block out family, employer, neighbors, and all less interesting things.
Find it on AM, FM and the Internet. My name is Carl Blare and my message approves you.

Stuph File here also.
Holder really deserves to be syndicated...
We agree with Jim Henry that Peter Anthony Holder deserves greater recognition through widespread syndication.
One program syndicate that does re-distribute The Stuph File is Keith Perron's PCJ Media in Tapei, Taiwan, and since last week we've been wondering about how Keith fared in his high rise apartment since the earthquake over there, so this morning we downloaded his "The Happy Station Show" and indeed Keith spends several minutes describing how the earthquake was strongest on the east coast of Taiwan, even though he felt it at a weaker velocity following an alert received on the mandated earthquake alarm system installed in his building.
You may wonder how it is that KDX carried "The Happy Station" given the fact that the show contains copyrighted music. Well, we shut off our Icecast stream and listened only on our campus FM station which does not reach the public.

The best sleep is done with no artificial sound in the house, such as a radio. But being a radio station makes it tempting to have a receiver turned on to admire the programming while dozing off.
But talk programming that digs into issues can stimulate responses and can lead to waking up at the wrong hour such as 3 AM.
I found that airing "dark ambient" programming was at first very compatible with a pleasant sleep with sound that mixed in with the quiet night.
But the sleeping brain is remarkably sensitive and even small variations in the background "ambient sound" have sparked responses. In one case I awoke abruptly and thought I had "heard something". Then I remembered that the ambient music was on the air... apparently the sleeping brain had not "learned" to distinquish between real and artificial noise.
Then last night, in the depths of dreaming, someone kept holding side conversations with the person I was with (in the dream). I couldn't figure out what they were talking about, but slowly became half-awake and realized there was a muffled voice speaking as part of the ambient track on the radio. I did not like the fact that a voice on the radio was interferring with my dream, so the ambient programming is now officially banned.
From now on there is no one "on duty" at the radio station overnight, and no one listening.
