For what it's worth, I recommend oral rehydration mix, say 6 tsp sugar to 1 tsp of salt to one litre or quart of water—dissolve the solids in 1 cup / 250ml of boiling water, add 3 cups cool water. It's got me through some difficult weeks.

If you think DJs listen most of the time, there's a decent chance you think prostitutes are into the sex.

(Having done one of those and hearing about the other, both mostly think of what they have to do at work next, irritatedly think of errands they'll have to run, remember a childhood pet, occasionally get into what they're doing for _moments_ at a time, and sometimes ponder the life decisions and 'decisions' that got them where they find themselves.

Did you know Ken's alleged Kermit voice is just an Andy joke? In an old 7SD episode Andy confesses he made it up but somehow Ken forgot and lots of people still believe it.

I kinda thought there'd be a lot of orgies and wild end-of-the-world hookups and stuff by now, but nobody is giving much thought to the imminent nuclear war yet. Ahem. Not that I'm into that kind of thing or anything. Nope.

Something makes me think that D.T. has often paid for very strict correction—that 'something' being a fatuous belief that there is any justice in the world, 'even for a moment'.

Psshaw, of course I do, @Fofo! I was just joking around. In fact, I'm at an orgy right now! But all of this wild lovemaking is getting pretty boring, so I'm going to climb out of this pile of heaving naked folks and go back to work now.

Oh, I get it: 'Greene' instead of 'Red'.

Now play "Pull the Tregroes", a much better Baez impression.

Thanks, Ken. Hope you feel better. On no particular authority, I recommend some antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries or pomegranate. Probably best to avoid caffeine for a while, too.

Hope you feel better, Ken. Great show. Forget all that healthy crap and pick a bottle of high end bourbon.

Migraine will go away as soon as the show ends, Ken, just as Okasa's songs end just as he stops his car.

A warm foot bath might help.

Feel good Ken (don't avoid caffeine, not if you're already addicted).
Enjoyed to show.
