Ken, not to complain, but your AGTBTPOTSB gifs make the fan in my very modern laptop fire right up. And that never happens otherwise. So they are VERY processor intensive.

I'm ignorant on many fronts: what does 'AGTBTPOTSB' signify?

Kilroy is a good reminder that not all British TV is the high-class quality imports and snooty Tory costume dramas we get here. They have a LOT of sleazy trash too, like we do. Maybe sleazier than us, even.

Popov`s presentation of his first receiver in 1895! what`s more important - couldn`t listen to Drunk Ken 7SD 2009 episode in the archives - is it intentionally deleted?
Avatar    Wed. 5/7/14 10:58am Ken:

Vanya, I think that episode is there as a re-run isnt it? I did take the original one off the archives so as to increase its value as a re-run, but I did re-run it...

vanya, see the june 13, 2012 archive. it's a re-broadcast.

My intuition is that the answer to 'Why do I torture myself?' is usually rooted in the conviction that you deserve it, or that it will happen undeservedly but inevitably, and that your self-torture a.) will somehow interfere or preclude others' torturing you, and b.) your self-torture is _nothing_ compared to what others would do to you, given the chance.

Hi all! I don't want to bring down the show but one of the last great college stations, WRAS 88.5 in Atlanta, is being turned into yet another NPR station (Atl already has one) and removing student involvement. 88.5 has/had an incredible 43 year history of being the only all student-runned 100,000-watt radio station. Many a good people got their starts (including me) on the airwaves there. Please take a look the petition: http://tinyurl.com/o363c7b

I think our beloved "Drunk Ken" was part of the US Sanctions. Just the thought of being banned from listening to "Drunk Ken" has made Putin rethink his plans of world domination and he has pulled back his troops. Thank you Ken. God Bless you.

@Ken from Hyde Park -- Yeah, totally crazy, no? I only saw the headline, so I can't really speak to anything about the situation. I just chalk it up to the inability of Minnesotans to, well, actually communicate in any way possible.

Don't get me wrong. Autotune is a great tool, sometimes it makes unlistenable people listenable. But children signing like adults scares me the bejesus out of me.
